A Drunk Girl’s Guide to Healthy Eating

This situation is all too familiar. You are stumbling out of Maggie’s, ready to get in a cab, when all of a sudden you can’t stop thinking about how good some food sounds right now. You look into the distance, right past the cab, and see the glowing lights of Steak and Shake. Should you do it?

Um…no. Once in a while it’s okay to splurge. But if that scene is you every Thurdsay, Friday, and Saturday, you should probably do your best to skip the fries and hop in the cab, take Domino’s off of your speed dial, back away from the vending machine, and stick to these healthy snacks you can stuff your face with at the end of the night.

If you live in an apartment and have access to a kitchen:
1. Egg whites -Put some egg whites in a pan and you can add any veggies that you find in your fridge to it!

2. Cook some healthy veggies and whole wheat pasta and prepare it beforehand with marinara sauce, etc, so you just have to pull it out of the fridge and indulge when you come back late!

If you don’t have access to a kitchen:
1.1 bag Orville Redenbacher’ Smart Pop Butter Mini Bags- you can munch on this popcorn forever, and not gain the calories of a normal bag!

2. Almonds- good crunch food!

3. Edamame- good source of protein and very few calories!

4. Greek yogurt – filling protein!

5. Dried fruit – some healthy carbohydrates and antioxidants!

6. Coconut water – helps to rehydrate and replenish electrolytes lost from drinking!

Even though your brain might not remember your drunk eating, your stomach will! Follow these tips to steer your munchies in the right direction!
