It’s Friday night. All week meals have consisted of good, healthy foods like chicken breast and lots of veggies. The goal of eating clean has been going really well. Progress is starting to show.
But tonight, dinner is out with friends as a local restaurant. The friend selected it. She knows you’re trying to stay on track with your nutrition and mentioned that this place has some healthy options.
But, what is “healthy,” anyway? Does it mean ordering a salad? Aren’t salad dressings packed with calories? Should it be fish or can it be chicken?
The restaurant has a menu online, but even that leaves a lot of questions. Fear and frustrating start to set in.
Later, at dinner, still searching the menu trying to determine what to order, the waiter approaches. Everyone else is ready. Time’s up, so you just ask for what you would normally get, even though you know it probably isn’t healthy.
The food is good and the company is great, but heading home there’s that familiar feeling of guilt and frustration.
Another great week of eating, probably all for nothing.
It’s so hard to stay on track and eat clean when you have to go out to eat at restaurants.
But what if you didn’t have to wonder what to order? What if, you could choose from a variety of great local restaurants, right here in Clintonville, and confidently order a meal you not only will like, but which you can also enjoy guilt-free?
So many people I work with at Fitness Evolution struggle with knowing what to order when they go out to eat. Restaurants are a wild card, sometimes, because we aren’t sure if something that appears healthy is actually low calorie.
Because I have been eating clean for years and can easily navigate just about any restaurant menu and devise a cleaner, low calorie, lower fat and carb option to avoid totally blowing my nutrition goals, I knew I had something that could help others.
This is why I created the Clintonville Restaurant Guide for anyone who wants to stay on track with clean eating and not have to give up their social life.
This guide covers everything from Harvest Pizza to Pat & Gracie’s, and gives not only one diet friendly option, but three!
Use this as your cheat sheet anytime you’re going out in the ‘Ville. Enjoy our delicious local restaurants without the guilt and frustration that comes with feeling like you’re undoing all your hard-earned progress with one meal.
