Greek: While the baklava and gyros look and smell amazing, opt to try some dolmades. These are grape leaves stuffed with some rice and other goodies and cooked in broth. So delicious and a very "local" food.
German: Schnitzel is tempting, especially when it is sizzling on the table next to yours, but there are a few healthier options that you will love too! They have great veggie options and I recommend the white asparagus as a side dish. Some of the lower fat meats include venison and fish options. Good luck!
Italian: With the smells of pizza and pasta taunting you at every turn, we need some good choices in Italy and in Italian restaurants. The antipastas with deli meats and vinegary dressings are always delicious, and caprese salad (with mozzarella, basil, and tomato) is my personal favorite. If you are in need for some gelato, opt for the sorbet options instead of the full-cream ones.
Chinese: In China, many things are cooked in full-fat oils and it can be hard to find a healthful option. Try traditional Chinese soups as a lower fat option when in need of a lighter meal. Many of them hit the spot! If eating at an American Chinese restaurant or ordering take out, avoid the fried options and replace with kung pao chicken and egg drop soup!
