I n a world where we live in the fast lane, we do not always have time to cook healthy well balanced meals. We tend to opt for fast food because  it’s easy to get, affordable and fills the tummy. Sometimes (when we have time) we dine out with our loved ones.

Dining out is a very popular past time for millions of people all around the world, however as popular as it is, it’s not very healthy. Restaurants often serve big portions of food which contain a lot more calories than a dish you would have prepared at home. Sometimes you may even be tempted to order something on the menu that may not form part of your diet.

They say your body is a temple and you should look after it. Although eating healthy and taking care of your well being may be hard (because of your fast paced life), it should be two of the most important things you strive for. With the help of dining revolution Eat Out Kenya, we have found a few healthy, yet delicious restaurant/menu options which may cut your cooking time in half without spoiling your diet.
