Dining Strategies for Specific Cuisines

Do you have an ethnic cuisine that you love?  Perhaps Chinese takeout is your weakness, or maybe you love spicy Mexican food.  No matter what your preference is, it can be difficult to make good choices when eating.  This can be especially true when you are not familiar with a specific type of cuisine.  For example, is Saganaki or Yalanji Yaprak a better choice??  If it’s all Greek to you, you may want to take a look at Sparkpeople’s “Dining Strategies for Specific Cuisines“.

This website allows you to click on a specific type of cuisine to get information about the best and worst choices on the menus.  Knowing which words indicate high-fat dishes and those that indicate more figure-friendly dishes can be half the battle when eating out.  For more information, click on the following link: http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrition_articles.asp?id=548
