Colorado is one of the best states to live if you are the kind of person that is into a healthy lifestyle. Whether you love to ski, hike, bike or mountain climb, there is more than enough opportunities available for people to get outside and enjoy their preferred physical activity. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that this beautiful state is also considered one of the most healthy states for overall well being in the United States, according to the latest Gallup survey. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is not just about physical activities either, it also includes consuming healthy and nutritious foods as part of your every day eating routine. While most Coloradans embrace the healthy diet that is so popular here, one area where this can be challenging is when it comes to eating out. It can be easy to backslide into bad habits when you are faced with all of the delicious deep fried foods that seem to make their way onto every restaurant menu. However, you do not have to give up going out to dinner in order to maintain your healthy eating habits. Instead of skipping the restaurant altogether, aim for places that boast a variety of healthy options on their menu. Thai food in Denver is one such great option. A typical menu at a Thai food restaurant is full of spicy and delicious options, many of which also happen to be perfect as part of a balanced and healthy diet.
When you are on the search for a place that has more healthy choices other than just a dressing-free salad, keep an eye out for places that not only tout their healthy menu, but also work as a farm to table style restaurant. Places that source their ingredients from local farms are often going to have brighter flavors and more nutrients packed into each dish. When fruits and vegetables do not have to circle to globe to make it onto your dinner plate, then they do not have to be pumped full of chemicals in order to make sure that they survive the trip. Most farm to table restaurants can more offer more affordable dishes that are organic when they get their food locally (and also, both you and the restaurant are helping the local economy when you eat at their establishment.)
We are lucky to live in a state like Colorado, where it is fairly easy to find both healthy and farm to table style restaurants and we have quite a selection to choose from. If you feel pretty comfortable finding healthy options for nights when you are eating out, then your focus may be more on finding healthy options for weeknights when you do not have the time or energy to go out or cook at home. Thai Food takeout is a great way to fill your belly on these nights without having to feel guilty about consuming “fast food.” The next time you are in a hurry but you do not want to break your diet, swing by your local Thai restaurant to see what they have to offer.
