BIRTHDAY GIRL, that's me today!!!!!!

I always wonder how to keep healthy on the road, or our for dinner because who really just wants a plate of salad. So far here are a few changes I've made to my "eating out" healthy lifestyle:

Mucho Burrito 
I've traded my chicken/beef burrito for delicious FISH tacos. I have always been hesitant to try fish tacos until I made it once for dinner with homemade salsa and guacamole. I'll share that recipe in a future blog.

Subway 
I've traded my chicken/meatball sub for Tuna salad. I had no idea all the subs at subway could be purchased as a salad. This healthier take-out I owe to my husband.

Tonight I'll be having dinner with friends and family at Marché and I've already mapped out our healthy alternative:
We'll be having either chicken or vegetarian stir-fry, hold the noodles!
And I will trade cake/ice cream with a fruit salad, sorbet or frozen yogurt : )

Before I go check out these "9 tricks to staying healthy while eating out"  http://www.fitday.com/fitness-articles/nutrition/9-tricks-to-staying-healthy-when-eating-out.html<

Remember Healthy Husband Happy Wife!

Happy Birthday to you! Hope your evening out with family/friends was a great time! I have gone the "healthier" route when eating out at times and still enjoyed the time out so it is possible to eat healthy and still enjoy it! :) One trick I do, especially at lunch, is just drink water instead of sodas.

Thanks ladies, I am also enjoying reading your blogs. I ended up having just sushi and though the cheesecake looked absolutely delicious ... I abstained. It was a wonderful gathering and that's a pretty good trick Mother Ann stacking up on water.
