When you go out to eat

do you pick a healthier option or do you eat whatever you want (like as an occasional treat?) I mostly pick healthier options, like a nice salad with dressing on the side, or a vegetarian burger for the most part, but there are times I go all out. Last night I had the best BLT and beer batter fried onion rings! I think probably 80% of the time I choose healthier options.

  • I eat really healthy at home, all the time, so I tend to "splurge" when I go out to eat (yes, I'll take the triple decker burger and the triple chocolate cheesecake lol)

  • i tend to be a bit of a health freak. mostly because i have an odd sense of taste i guess... i don't like things that're too sweet, too salty, i hate sour, too much of anything. so that really just eliminates most guilt food. but i do like a good variety of flavor. and spicy food. when i eat out.. it's all steak, pho, smoothies. whatever. no sodas though. =\

    then again, sometimes my perception of what is healthy may be a bit "flawed"... (i.e. ice cream? that's a dairy product, right? donuts=grains/wheat/bread. chocolate has health benefits, that philly cheese steak has lettuce on it.. onions, tomatoes... it's pretty much a freakin salad on there! oh yea.. mayonnaise.. that's made of eggs.. which is a good source of protein right?) hahahaXD

  • I eat whatever I want. But that's just me. I've never been one to eat anything low fat, low calorie, low sodium, low sugar, etc. I really enjoy a good unhealthy meal. LOL. The BLT and onion rings sound really good to me right now.

  • Well, we NEVER go out to eat, pretty much just my birthday and our anniversary, so I go all out at a nice restaurant.

  • We don't go out often, and I usually consider wise choices- will pass up pasta usually, for example. I like fish so I often have that.

  • I do both. Depending on who my diet at home has been.
