Maneuvering your way through the menu

Restaurant menus can be hard to navigate sometimes. Restaurant food is questionable on just how on par they are with their nutrition- even the known "healthy" eateries.

Go into it with a plan, make sure you aren't ravished when you show up to the restaurant.  Drinking water and having a snack beforehand is a great option for staying satisfied for a few.

Order an appetizer! Ordering an appetizer can also help you. Ordering a lighter appetizer is a great choice! They come out fast and can help if your feeling ravished.  Try to take some of your entree to go in a doggy bag. Most entrees are huge portions, and breaking it up into 2 meals is a great healthy option!!

While ordering...
-Try to steer clear of dishes with words like bisque, buttered, scalloped, creamy, tempura, fried, smothered, cream sauce, au gratin, deep fried, breaded

-Better options are grilled, sautéed, broiled, steamed, au jus, vinaigrette, poached, and baked.

Remember the customer is always right, restaurants will make substutions to cater to your needs. So, making substitutions is a great option.

Apps for your phone such as yumpower or the calorieking can help you navigate through some healthy and not so healthy options. Both apps are free, remember being healthy just takes a little bit of extra time and with making daily healthy choices you set yourself up for success in the long run.

Healthy Protein Pumpkin Muffins!!!!

So, I know "pumpkin season" is long over!! But these are delish all year round and super enjoyable with a warm cup of tea for a cold windy night!! These Protein Pumpkin Fat Free Cream Cheese filled muffins are pretty healthy and just 130 calories a muffin.

1&3/4cups of oat flour (oats in blender)
1/4 c protein powder
2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda
2 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
2 eggs
1 can of pumpkin
5 packets of truvia
2 1/2 tbsp of Splenda brown sugar
1/4 c of brown sugar

6 oz of Fat free Cream Cheese
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tbsp of Greek yogurt
4 packets of sweetener of choice (truvia)

Combine the muffin batter mixture, starting with the dry-mix it all together. I used oats for the oat flour and blended it in the blender you can use whole wheat flour as well if you wish. But make sure you remeasure the oats after you have blended them! Then stir in the wet ingredients.

For the filling just combine all the ingredients in a separate bowl.

Preheat oven to 350
Fill a cupcake pan, each only 1/3-1/2 of the way full then spoon a dollop of the cream cheese mixture on top of that, then even out more muffin batter on top of the cream cheese(covering the it completely.) Should make about 10-12 muffins.
Bake for 20 mins!!!
