For many eating breakfast out is a real treat. It’s a great way to start the day and also reconnect with family and friends. But, how can you eat breakfast out and still strive for “healthful”? Here are a few suggestions.
• Only eat one egg—you can be satisfied with just one. Many people eat two out of habit.
• Share a two egg breakfast – each person gets one egg, one slice of whole wheat toast and one slice of bacon. It saves calories and helps the budget, too.
• Go for a veggie omelet–…why not go for an egg white vegetable omelet and keep the cheese. It’s a trade-off. Vegetable omelets are a great way to help meet that daily vegetable recommendation.
• Split that veggie omelet breakfast to control portion sizes. That gives each diner an omelet, one piece whole-grain toast, a fruit, a small amount of potatoes.
• Egg white sandwiches at fast food breakfast places aren’t awful. You can take the Canadian bacon off, or feel comfortable that it has more protein and less fat than “regular” bacon.
Many times oatmeal at a restaurant can be costly and quite often “instant” and not a good source of fiber. Also eating cold cereal out doesn’t usually offer good options for high fiber and low sugar. Restaurants tend not have low-fat or skim milk or yogurts available. It’s also a budget thing—most people do not want to spend the money for what they got for these items out.
Overall, eating breakfast at home provides more healthful options. But with some careful selections, a friendly restaurant and perhaps even an agreeable dining companion; eating breakfast at a restaurant does not have to sabotage an otherwise healthful diet.
