Tips for Eating Healthy When Dining Out

 

March is National Nutrition Month across the country. It’s also an ideal time to look at what we can do to make eating out healthier, especially when you consider that as many as half of the meals that people eat today come from restaurants. In fact, the National Restaurant Association reports that it’s forecasting roughly $631 billion in restaurant sales for 2012. In a typical day across the country, restaurants sell around $1.7 billion worth of food.

Clearly, we are nation that enjoys dining out. But one look at the obesity rates and other health issues makes it apparent that we also need to strive for making healthier meal choices, even when we are at restaurants.

Fast, Everyday Eatery Comes To Silver Spring

Fast, Everyday Eatery Comes To Silver Spring

Who doesn’t love a good burger? Restaurateur, Spiro Gioldosis, who has opened three succesful restaurants in Silver Spring including Pacci’s Neapolitan Pizzeria, Pacci’s Trattoria & Pasticceria, and assisted in opening Mrs. K’s Restaurant in the last two years, is about to add restaurant number four.

Gioldosis believed the area needed a solid burger shop to satisfy residents and visitors of the Fillmore and AFI Silver Theatre.

“We couldn’t ask for a better location and our hours will be based very much on what is going on in the area.”

Chef Luis Flores and Spiro Gioldosis have transformed the former South American rotisserie and grill, Sabroso, into "The Stage Burger Lounge" located at 8624 Colesville Road, Silver Spring. The restaurant will be serving up upscale burgers and sandwiches from "11 am to late."
