I eat out regularly eat out in central Newcastle. I’ve had my favourite ever burger, pizza, pie, parsnip soup and an entire dining experience in this beautiful and vibrant city. There are hundreds of restaurants to choose from. And so I thought it may be useful to share my experiences instead of just letting the photos disappear over time in my photo stream. I want to keep my posts short and to the point, share some pictures and talk about my experiences – the quality of the food and the service I receive.
I most often dine out at lunch time during the week. I’m not a fan of crowds and busy places in my spare time. I love chilling out and not feeling rushed. Sitting in the corner and watching the world go by, sucking in all the positive vibes. Sometimes eating out is purely practical though as myself, my husband and daughter need quick feeding before I get too hangry (a mixture of hunger and angry). You don’t want to make me hangry. (On clever days I take my own advise and always make sure to have a healthy snack to hand at all times… but you know… I have my weaknesses and as long as I can control my weight there is no problem.)
I work with nutrition on a daily basis. I am a personal trainer and nutritionist, and I can’t emphasise enough how important it is to have a sweet balance in life and nutrition. So I don’t hide the fact from people that I eat often eat out. I love my food and manage to keep myself at my optimum weight year round, despite occasionally grazing on some beautiful scran that’ll easily take me over the national recommended daily allowance on fats and sodium. Balance, it’s all about balance. And flexible dieting allows it.
I do wish there were more deliciously healthy food joints in the city (and everywhere in the world, for that matter). So if you know of one, please let me know!
I rarely go with the unhealthiest choice on the menu, sometimes even check the calorie content of different meals so I can be 100% sure to maintain my weight.
In the past year I’ve worked hard on reducing the amount of red meat I eat (mostly by not buying much for the house). But when I eat out, I do allow myself to order anything on the menu.
