Last night we went out to a small, charming Italian restaurant. After looking over the entire menu I realized there was absolutely.positively.nothing.healthy. Like, mussels covered in butter & cream sauce just don’t do it for me.

Here’s where modification comes in handy.

Modification is my bestie. It changes the way I eat, the way I feel, & the way I look.

Instead of a Caesar, I ordered a mixed green salad with extra beets & greens. Then for an entrée a friend & I split a margherita flatbread. We modified it by adding arugula/avocado/black olives/lemon/jalapeños & asking for light cheese.

Hey, I’m aware. These six hundred requests are annoying to any waitress ( cue: heavy sighs & evil eyes ).

But you wanna know what’s more annoying? Having love handles hang over your J Brand skinnies.

So next time you’re on a dinner date, at a cocktail party, &/or dining a restaurant, don’t be afraid to make healthier requests. Substitute creamy dressing for red wine vinegar & lemon. Request a half an order of pasta instead of a whole. Or even order sushi wrapped in cucumber instead of brown rice.

Happy Monday!

Love.L

    I’m so glad to know that there are other picky orderers :), at least we know what we want!
    For sushi I always do light on the rice (and brown rice), To beef up a sad house salad, ask for hummus or avocados on top with vinagrette on the side, and for pizzas I love doing fresh spinach or arugula on top with goat cheese! Also if there’s a protein that comes with sauce- ask for it on the side, it’s always a calorie bomb.
