3 Healthy Sides to Round Out Your Meal, Honolulu, Hawaii

When eating dinner at a restaurant, you might want a side to pair with a main dish if you’re extra hungry. However, if you’re trying to avoid weight gain, your options may be limited when the menu has unhealthy choices like fries and onion rings. Here are a few filling and nutritious sides to order instead.

3 Nutritious Sides to Order With Your Meal

1. Garden Salad

Whether you order a grilled chicken sandwich or turkey burger for dinner, a garden salad will pair nicely with it. A simple salad with lettuce, cucumbers, and other veggies without the dressing typically contains about 33 calories. It’s also loaded with vitamins and minerals that will help you fight off illnesses and keep your body strong. If you want to have dressing, ask the server to put it on the side.

dinner2. Sweet Potatoes

Instead of ordering fries with your burger, go with sweet potatoes. These sweet root vegetables are packed with flavor and only contain 180 calories per cup. They provide high amounts of vitamins A and C as well as fiber, which is beneficial for gut health. Sweet potatoes are also rich in beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in your body and provides vision benefits.

3. Green Beans

Green beans are a rich source of folic acid, fiber, iron, and other nutrients. They pair well with protein-filled dinner entrees like salmon and chicken. These crunchy vegetables take on flavors nicely and only contain about 44 calories per cup.
