Seriously, reduce stress, eat out guilt free is something that really exists. Here’s the issue, we have so much stress, so much anxiety around eating out, what do we do? We’ll I’ll tell you what we do, in this post and show I go over a handful of great tips to help you reduce stress so you actually can eat out guilt free.
I know it’s difficult, I know we’re not sure where to go, how to prepare, what to order, but that’s exactly what we’re going to cover. I’m going to help you feel more comfortable when you want to enjoy a night out and even when you didn’t exactly prepare and need something to eat without any prep.
#1. Create a weekly meal plan
I can’t tell you how much success I’ve seen with those that create a weekly meal plan. It seems like it’ll take more time to do this but you’ll actually find it, it’ll save you time throughout the week. This will also carry over to some of the other tips.
#2. In your meal plan schedule a night to go out
I know it sounds like over planning and I also know it’s fun to do things spur of the moment but this will reduce so much stress in your life. If you actually plan ahead and schedule this night there are so many advantages to find a healthier place to go out. We’ll get into more in the tips below but make sure you plan a night to go out.
#3. Stick especially close to your meal plan
If you’re know you’re going out, it’s that much more important to stick close to your meal plan. You’ll reduce a large amount of stress, if you stick close to your meal plan and almost treat your night out as a reward for doing such a good job all week long. (However, this doesn’t mean it’s time to over indulge and eat whatever you like, be conscious of the food you’re putting your body and pay attention to how it makes you feel).
#4. Consider a digestive enzyme and or a probiotic supplement
Personally I think we should have a probiotic in some for everyday. If you know you’re going out this is especially important so you can prepare your gut and body for foods it’s not used to. Try to have some type of probiotic in the morning, pop a few digestive enzymes before dinner and you can even order a side of fermented food with dinner (my favourite side dish is Kimchi, not only for taste but to help my gut digest foods I’m not used to consuming). *I also highly recommend Puradyme’s digestive enzyme.
#4. Find a better option
If you’re stopping somewhere last mind try to find a better option. If its’ a main stream place we usually know if they have any type of better option at all. These days we can even find healthier options in fast food restaurants, so do you best to make a wise decision for your body and health.
#5. Let go of guilt
Guilt, by far, does more damage to your mind and body than the actual meal. So if the wheels fall off, do your best to let it go. You’re not doing anyone any good by replaying your not so good decision over and over again in your mind. Let it go, move on and do better the next day.
I hope these tips helped give you a better idea of how you can reduce stress, eat out guilt free because you really can. Enjoy life, make better decisions, enjoy the little things and improve your decisions on day at a time.
