Planning for a dinner date? You might be worried about how restaurant food will measure up to your diet—after all, there's often a shortage of good-for-you veggies on the menu. Don't let the menu hold you back. "Ask your waiter or waitress if you can add veggies to your meal. Ask for specific veggies that you love, or ask them to surprise you with a mix. Chinese, Thai and Italian restaurants are usually happy to accommodate your request, but it can't hurt to ask when you're dining at other places, too."
Veggie up items like pizza, pasta, stir-fry, sandwiches, burgers, omelets and wraps. There may be an added charge, but the boost of flavor (not to mention fiber and nutrients!) will be worth every penny.
