Every once and a while, it's nice to go out and grab a bite to eat with a friend. But for those of us watching what we eat, this could be a major set back in our new diet. However, it doesn't have to be, here are seven healthy lunch ideas for when you're dinning out, according to CNN.com.
Choose 2 slices of Domino's medium hand tossed Philly Steak Pizza:
400 calories, 14 grams fat (6g sat), 840mg sodium.
P.F. Chang's Asian Grilled Salmon Lunch Bowl:
320 calories, 5 grams of fat (1g sat) and only 570 milligrams of sodium per serving.
Round out the meal with a side of garlic snap peas:
64 calories, 2g fat, 107mg sodium.
Surprisingly, go for a McDonald's Hamburger:
250 calories, 9 grams of fat (3.5g sat) and 520 milligrams of sodium.
At such low numbers, this burger leaves room for a 20-calorie side salad (add a serving of Newman's Own Low Fat Balsamic Vinaigrette for only 40 calories if you prefer) and small fry (230 calories, 11 grams fat (1.5g sat) and 160mg sodium).
Our top salad pick is Atlanta Bread Company's Salsa Fresca Salmon Salad. This corn and black bean salad adds fiber (6 grams) to this 560 calorie main dish salad with an appetite quenching 38 grams of protein, just 4.5 grams of saturated fat and 590 milligrams of sodium.
Wendy's Grilled Chicken Go Wrap:
260 calories, with 10 grams of fat (3.5 g sat) and 750mg sodium.
Add a garden side salad (25 calories, 30mg sodium)
and a Mandarin Orange Cup (90 calories, 10 grams of sodium).
