The Raw Truth

When it comes to ordering a healthy dish when eating out, it can be a bit of a tossup, and while you can ask for your food one way with the best of intentions, it can come totally wrong. So then how do you avoid an buttery mess when you ask for your fish prepared high and dry? Or how can you insure that the chef doesn't put oil on the grill before grilling your chicken? Simple answer: you can't. So how do you avoid something like this? Another simple answer: order raw.

I'm not talking about only dining at restaurants that adhere to the new raw-vegan diet trend... what I mean is, if the chef hasn't cooked your food, there's no guessing game as to what went into the cooking process. In other words, there is no mystery in the cooking process because there is none. This is one of the main reasons I love sashimi, but eating sashimi every night could get expensive, so if you're the type of person that eats out a lot, a salad is as safe as it gets. Go for a vinegar or some fresh-squeezed lemon juice for dressing, and you're good to go. With salads, there is no guessing game as to how it was cooked, because it isn't! You could also go for cheese plates (in moderation), fresh fruit for dessert, you get the idea. Pin It
