3 Healthy and Effective Tips for Takeout Lovers

On Monday Morning, you find yourself setting a mantra for the week ahead. Eat this. Not that. Do this. Not that. You go to the grocery store, buy every healthy option on your list, and head home to make your week the healthiest one yet. Sure, you spent a pretty penny to get the organic stuff, but you know that it will keep you from splurging on a night out on the town with your pals in the middle of the week. As the week unravels, however, you begin to come up with excuses not to cook. Work ran late. You're just too damn tired. You can't even fathom going out to eat! So what do you do? Pick up the phone or tap on the app, and order your favourite takeout. The convenience is clutch. You click on a movie and the waiting game begins. Unfortunately, with that comes the unraveling of your week. takeout The turkey company Butterball recently conducted a study revealing that Americans each spend abut $1,100 on takeout every year! Now think about all the things you could have spent that lousy takeout on... And it's not just the money that's being wasted. In Butterball's study, more than 8 in 10 people surveyed admitted that they opt for delivery even if their fridge is stocked. All those perishable items sitting in your fridge? They're going bad by the time you decide to eat them. With that said, here's three tips to break your takeout cycle and ensure your bank account and waistline don't suffer. 1. Forget to buy groceries? That's not an excuse to hit up your favourite Chinese delivery service. Try one of the many wonderful grocery delivery services available instead. 2. Keep it simple! If you're typically in a time crunch, don't buy items for the most complicated meal of your life. Try cooking something straight forward so you won't dread hours of hovering over the stove. 3. Still want takeout? Put that pizza menu down and pick up a healthier option! You know they're out there. When you're ordering in, what options do you go for to make sure you stick to your diet?
