TOP TAKEAWAY TIPS

Molly Jones - Thursday, August 31, 2017

 

 

When's the last time you bought take away for dinner after a long day at work? What about picking up something quick and easy on your lunch break?

Living a busy life and working long hours can often lead to inadequate time to prepare food at home and therefore a higher tendency to purchase takeaways. Did you know that in 2010 alone, the Australian Bureau of Statistics reported that the average Australian family spends approximately $60 a week on takeaway food, typically on fast foods which are high in fat, salt and energy.

 

The good news is, it is easy to make your next takeaway healthier!

 

Here are some tips to help you:

1. Avoid battered and fried foods in your takeaway

2. Choose a steamed dished over a deep-fried dish whenever possible

3. Choose brown rice instead of white rice

4. Whenever possible, check the type of oil used to cook your dish and opt for healthier options, such as olive or canola oil

5. Instead of choosing a meal deal with chips and soft drinks, choose healthier side dishes such as salads, fruit, yoghurt and plain water

6. Aim to have half of your takeaway filled with vegetables and a quarter with lean meat and a quarter with whole grains.

7. Remove any skin from your meat dishes to reduce your fat consumption

 

Keep these tips in mind the next time you head out to grab your takeaway or open up MenuLog or Foodora.
