How To Order Breakfast While Eating Out

Trying to eat healthy while eating out can be pretty difficult. The things that I mention in this video are pretty simple and maybe it isn’t so hard to order your breakfast, but since breakfast is the first meal of the day, why not make it as nutritious as possible. Also many people have trouble with portion control. This will help keep your portions down while you eat out.

When I booked my trip to Jackson, WY, I booked a hotel that had free breakfast.  A lot of good the free breakfast did me.  When I am checking out the breakfast I always ask if the eggs are real.  They always look at me like I am an idiot.  Usually they say yes.  So then I ask them if the eggs come out of a bag, carton or box.  Did you crack a shell? Did you pour them out of a bag? It’s really not that hard to look at the eggs that they cook and realize that there is something wrong with them.  Sometimes the people say yes we do get them out of a bag, but we can make you real eggs.  They aren’t going to be free range but I rather go with this option.

At the point that I find out that the chicken was given Milk of Magnesia in order to spray paint eggs, I start looking at my other options, which will include going to restaurant.  I usually look for a place that just serves breakfast and lunch or a diner.

Hopefully this video will make you think when you order your next meal.  Eat healthy and enjoy your food.
