Skipping meals or food groups can result in an unbalanced diet and lead to nutrient deficiencies. It is important to include a variety of foods in your diet to ensure that you are getting all the necessary nutrients your body needs to function properly.

Examples of a balanced meal include grilled chicken with a side of roasted vegetables and brown rice, or a salad with mixed greens, grilled salmon, avocado, and a vinaigrette dressing.

Eating out can be challenging when trying to maintain a balanced diet. Here are some tips for eating out smart:

  • Look for healthier options on the menu, such as grilled or baked dishes instead of fried.
  • Ask for dressings and sauces on the side so you can control the amount you consume.
  • Choose dishes that are loaded with vegetables and skip the sides that are high in calories and unhealthy.
  • Share a dish with a friend or take home half of your meal to avoid overeating.
  • Drink plenty of water and skip high-calorie drinks like soda or alcohol.

By following these tips, you can enjoy eating out while still maintaining a balanced and healthy diet.
