If you are anything like me, you are probably running around this holiday season and find yourself having to eat out more times in the span of a few weeks than eat at home. Stop the guilt! One of the best things you can do for yourself is to just maintain during the holiday season, and not to get to far off the beaten path. If you allow yourself a sensible splurge from time to time, the temptation of overeating sweet treats will be diminished. Here are a few of my holiday hacks to eating out on the run this holiday season while shopping. You can get many of these meals anytime during the day.
Panera– I came up with a somewhat hybrid of Dr. Phil’s 20/20 plan. Panera has a Mediterranean flatbread sandwich that is great for those times when you want to eat out but hate the guilt. I make sure it is with egg whites, spinach, and roasted red peppers. The sandwich comes in at just under 340 calories! It is sooooo yummy!
Nando’s– I have to admit, this has become a favorite of mine when I am out and about on a Saturday. As it turns out you do not have to compromise taste. Go ahead and order a 1/4 Chicken Breast & Wing for just over 250 calories!
Nando’s started way back in 1987, when the first restaurant opened in Rosettenville in Johannesburg, South Africa. We’ve come a long way since then, but we’ve never forgotten our humble beginnings.
All of Gusto’s ingredients are prepared using classic cooking techniques that ignite the food’s natural flavors. This is the essence of Italian farmhouse cooking, and we use this same approach to bring you a healthy taste for life.
