Weekly Health Tip: Avoid the Appies!

by Lauren on November 26, 2013

We had a great time in San Francisco, L.A and Las Vegas, but after a week of travelling and eating out it’s definitely nice to be home. While travelling we ate most of our dinners out, which was great, but I realized an important health tip when going out for dinner: avoid the appetizers!

They add money to the bill, and pounds to your waist-line. When you’re eating dinner at home do you start with a plate of calamari? Probably not. If you’re on vacation and eating out consecutive nights in a row I would recommend avoiding the appies to save money & calories. Plus, it’s a great feeling to be hungry for your main – hunger is the best spice. If you’re going to start your meal with something, make it a salad. It’s a great way to get your greens while on the road, and it fills you up with fibre, not calories.

Here are a few pics from our trip!

Best part about eating out in California – local & organic food! Why don’t more places care about this??
