My wife and I headed down to Miami to visit some friends and I tried to find a good place to do some snorkeling. Unfortunately, the tides were rough and I never made it out to Jose Cuervo Reef down in South Beach. I did get to swim and catch some rays while watching the paddle boarders and surfers catch some waves.
On the way home, we decided to venture to a new restaurant in Doral, FL named Olivos Restaurant. When finding placed to dine out, there’re a lot choices, but sometimes finding the ones with healthy options are hard to come by. We were happy we found this location. The food there was delicious and when I asked to speak with the chef about the ingredients he used, I was very pleased to know that everything was natural and fresh. I had the Seafood Saffron Risotto with Asparagus (Chef Mariano Araya provided me with the ingredients which are below) and my wife had the Breaded veal scaloppini “Milanesa.”
When going out for meals, ask your server if they can get you the recipe or the ingredient list for the food you want to order. This will help you better plan if you’re training or stay on track if you’re trying to work on weight management. If they don’t have a written list, ask to speak with the chef. Many places are fine with the chef coming to your table to speak with you about their dishes. Make sure you ask them about food allergies, measurements, artificial additives, and calories. Asking the questions will not only give you more insight on what you’re consuming, but also give you a better understanding of how the meals you’re ordering can affect your future workouts and goals.
