You can look online, or ask friends and family in the area for healthy choices. Then find out what each place offers. Look up the menus online, call, or talk with someone at the restaurant for options. Look for plant-based entrees, salads, lean proteins, and whole grains. Also check if they offer items that are grilled, rather than fried. You might also want to ask if they use fresh, local produce.

Keep a list of healthy places handy so you’ll know where to go when you head out to eat.
