There’s lean cuisine on every restaurant menu that will allow you to stick to your get-slim plan.
Start with a hearty escarole or vegetable soup, then order veal or chicken piccata. You can even have a side order of pasta with marinara sauce.
Always go for chicken, beef, or shrimp fajitas, but be sure to pass on the flour and corn tortillas. Add guacamole and plenty of salsa for extra flavour.
Stick to stir-fry (chicken, beef, and seafood), prepared without cornstarch, and ide of brown rice (many restaurants have it even if it’s not on the menu.)
Bouillabaisse (fish soup), chicken paillard, coq au vin (a chicken dish cooked with wine), and tuna nicoise salad (without the potatoes) are all safe bets.
Sashimi is a better choice than sushi (it’s not wrapped in white rice). Round out your meal with miso soup, a bowl of edamame, and a salad with ginger dressing.
