1. Go Green
Share a tasty non-boring salad (the kind with bacon bits and cheese and olives) with the table or a friend as a way of avoiding greasy appetizers. Or with the main meal make sure to get a vegetable dish to go with the other exciting stuff. This will make sure you distribute your appetite fairly and healthily.
2. Grilled not Fried
Yes we love fish and chips, the deep-fried kind. But you’d be surprised at how close the grilled fish gets to the fried in flavor, all without the dreadful acidity. Grilled meat/paneer/vegetables – woohoo!
3. Roti not Naan
Avoid the grease and extra carbs. Either way you won’t taste the difference of the bread when you’re eating that yummy chicken curry.
4. Look and Plan
When all the food gets to the table take a minute to just look around and check out what you feel like completely gorging on (yes we’re looking at you, chicken kebabs). Then make a plan. Decide how much is a decent amount to consume. Your decision can look something like this – 1 roti ( 2 halves), 5 pieces paneer, 2 kebabs. Or only 2 helpings of biryani. You get the gist. A little planning can help you stay in control and avoid overeating.
5. Take it Home
Don’t be shy of doggie bags. Too much food? You don’t have finish it now – instead you can enjoy this yummy goodness again, tomorrow!
