3 Tips to Order Healthy Takeout

In today’s hectic climate, it can be tough to find time to cook yourself a healthy, delicious meal every morning before heading to work a day on the job. There’s nothing wrong with ordering box lunches in Philadelphia when you don’t have time to cook for yourself — but how can you be sure that you’re choosing the healthiest options possible?

Use these three simple tips to order healthier choices the next time you pick up lunch from your favorite local restaurant.   

  • Look for lean options. The healthiest delivery options are heavy on vegetables and include lean protein options. Look for salads and dishes featuring salmon, grilled chicken, or another lean favorite. If you’re craving carbs, search for an option with quinoa, brown rice, or whole wheat bread.
  • Don’t overlook breakfast options. Breakfast options like omelets, frittatas, and scrambles are some of the healthiest takeout options available. If you work close to a diner offering 24/7 breakfast, don’t be afraid to enjoy breakfast for lunch or even dinner!  
  • Have a healthy standby. Sometimes, you’re just too tired to resist the siren song of a delicious bowl of white rice or a diet cola from your favorite fast food restaurant. In these circumstances, it can be helpful to have a go-to healthier option from your standby choices. For example, if you’re craving Chipotle, a salad bowl will help you satisfy your cravings without totally giving into temptation.
