Survive the mall food court with healthy options

Filed under:

Many of you will be visiting a shopping mall this holiday season to snatch up some gifts for friends and loved ones. Do yourself a favor, though -- bypass the (fast) food court while at that mall and opt for something more nutritious.

It's tempting to bypass the wafting smell of pizza and cheeseburgers from that shopping mall food court, but in December, even a loaded hot chocolate or candied pretzel can load up more calories than a cheese steak sandwich. What do you do?

Don't blow your calorie budget while shopping at the mall by using these planning tips to help you resist that 15-minute session that could pack 1,000 calories or more:
  • Eat breakfast
  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Bring some munchies
  • Be choosy at the food court
