We all love and enjoy eating out, and it
really is one of our life’s pleasures.
It is also perfectly possible to eat in a
restaurant and have healthy, appetizing
and tasty food if it is planned properly.
Always eat the same quantity of food
as you eat daily at home, and nothing more.
Take your time, eat slowly and take great
pleasure in everything on your plate.
Smell, taste, savour and enjoy your food.
This way your dinner will go extremely
well and you will be perfectly prepared
