Choose Cheats Wisely by Candice Qualls

This week's nutrition tip: Choose your "cheats" wisely!
 
First things first: DO NOT try to eliminate all "bad" foods for the rest of your life-it's simply not realistic, and you will most likely overdo it when you finally cave if you've deprived yourself for too long.

That being said, eating "clean" (basically eating unprocessed-fresh fruit & veggies, plenty of lean protein, whole grains and low-fat dairy) is one of the most fool-proof methods for every day eating. When you DO go out to dinner with friends or family, you can use a little tip I like to go by.
 
If the place you're going is all about the specific food (ie: The Melting Pot, Angus Barn, or places with special international dishes), go ahead and give yourself some room to indulge. However, if you're going out to dinner more for the company of your friends/family (ie: going out with a huge group of friends to Applebee's) stick with the healthiest option you can find & enjoy the PEOPLE.
 
I find this to be an easy way to distinguish whether I should go all out or give myself more strict boundaries. Life isn't about always saying "no" to the decadent cheesecake; it's all a great balancing act of finding when to splurge, and when to say "maybe next time."
