Restaurant and take-away meals can still be enjoyed as part of a healthy eating plan, especially if they are only consumed every now and then, and in smaller serves. But you don’t need me to tell you that you are better off opting for foods that are higher in fibre and lower in saturated fat and salt. And I’m sure you know to always include lots of veggies, right? Anyway, here are some pointers on what to order when tucking in at the following types of restaurants.

Should I avoid all dairy products if I am lactose intolerant?
Lactose is a carbohydrate that is naturally found in cow’s milk. People who are lactose intolerant are unable to break lactose down into its single constituents (glucose and galactose) because they lack lactase, the enzyme needed to digest lactose. However, even those with a lactase deficiency are able to tolerate small amounts of lactose without any symptoms. In fact, those with lactose intolerance may even be able to tolerate yoghurt, as the naturally present bacteria may assist with the breakdown of lactose. In addition, cream cheese and cottage cheese contain only a small amount of lactose and seem to be generally well tolerated. Butter, cream and yellow cheese also contain negligible amounts of lactose and can therefore be enjoyed by everyone, even those who are lactose intolerant. And don't forget about lactose free milk which is now widely available and perfect for those who have issues with lactose.
