In search of a healthy meal while shopping? The mall's in your court!
Don't assume smoothies are diet-friendly. Ask for the calorie, fat and carb counts before slurping down frozen drinks.
When ordering salads, leave off the cheese, crunchy noodles and fatty dressings.
Eating mexican? Don't be shy...create your own guilt-free "fiesta" by requesting lettuce, tomato, chicken, black beans and salsa.
Having a hard time finding healthy foods? Find anywhere offering deli sandwiches or grilled chicken sandwiches and order one without bread or sauce.
In need of a sweet treat? An ice cream cone from McDonald's has just 150 calories...go for it!
Not watching carbs? Take advantage by hitting up 1-Potato-2 for an Ultra-Lite Baked Potato. Order your Skinless Spud with Chicken, Mushrooms, and Roasted Red Peppers (245 cals, 2 g fat, 45 g carbs) for a delicious and healthy meal. Spud-tacular!
Where There's A Grill, There's A Way... You don't have to starve at the mall. Steak Escape has given you a way out! Their yummy Grilled Turkey Salad is a light delight at just 126 calories, 2 grams of fat, and 8 net carbs. Even if you go for the Grilled Steak Salad, you'll still only be swallowing 190 calories, 6 grams of fat, and 11 net carbs.
Chinese food can be healthy...even at the mall! Panda Express actually offers up some delicious dishes that won't pack on pounds. Their beef w/ broccoli, chicken w/ mushrooms and beef w/ stringbeans are all under 200 calories. But don't eat the white rice...order a side of veggies instead!
HUNGRY GIRL WARNING!
Far from a slice of heaven, Sbarro's Stuffed Pepperoni Pizza is any dieter's nightmare. This greasy, fatty triangle packs an insane 960 calories, 42 grams of greasy fat, and 85 carbs!
