Both Halloween and the State Fair of Louisiana all in one week is more than enough proof to say fall has arrived ! The temptations that surround us this time of year do not always agree with our plans to eat healthfully . However, you may be surprised to find out that you can find healthy foods walking down the midway . Here are a few tips to help you navigate the State Fair of Louisiana without punishing your waistline .
1. Remember the fair has healthy foods . Look for grilled options such as chicken and steak . Grilled vegetables are great , too.! Be mindful of your beverages such as sweetened teas , sodas and lemonade . These can pack quite a powerful calorie punch .
2 . Sharing can be a good thing . Have a carving for that one food , but you know you shouldn't eat the entire portion ? There is nothing wrong with sharing a few of your favorites with a friend .
3 . Be intentional and purposeful with your choices . Plan ahead . Tak a walk completely down the midway before making your selection . Know what is offered and make your choice ahead of time to eliminate impluse spending .
4 . One day do not make or break a diet plan . If you happen to overindulge , Make sure you get back on track tomorrow .
