The smart way to eat out

So like many people we love going out for meals, but a lot of the time this can somewhat put our health kick on pause! However, after trying out a few different places we have discovered that eating well whilst on the go can actually be easy and delicious if you pick the right meal - here are a few of our favourites!

Bill's - We both love this place. We are regulars for their brunches, and cannot recommend them enough - especially their 'Eggs Royale' which consists of sour dough toast, smoked salmon, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, alongside their Green juice. Their lunch menu also leaves us spoilt for choice, and a few of our favourite dishes to share include their Cous cous which comes with grilled halloumi, pomegranate seeds and salad, and their crab and prawn chilli fishcakes.

Pizza Express - This may seem a strange place to go when attempting to live a healthier lifestyle, but they actually offer a variety of light options perfect for keeping up eating well. We love their Superfood salad which comes with mozzarella, beetroot, butternut squash, avocados and more delicious components - and for a salad under 350 calories it is super filling! Their Leggera menu also offers a variety of pizzas with a salad in the middle for under 500 calories which is the perfect way to treat yourself to some pizza whilst maintaing a balanced diet.

Jamie's Italian - Another favourite of ours, we recently visited with a couple of our friends and were spoilt for choice with their menu. Although we could have easily opted for one of their amazing sounding pasta or pizza dishes, their quinoa salad caught our eye over all of these! This dish contains a huge variety of ingredients including quiona, smoked salmon, avocados, feta cheese and more and is so filling and satisfying.

As well as these chain restaurants, we have also discovered a few hidden gems, such as 'The Maytree'. They have the a delicious menu with so many fresh fish choices, making it easy for those eating clean to enjoy a meal out. A favourite has to be their grilled salmon salad glazed with a lemon and herb dressing on a giant bed of mixed leaves, cucumber, tomato, peppers and homemade croutons, it is absolutely delicious and healthy!
