Ten years ago, if you pulled off the highway for a quickie lunch, your healthy menu options were a sad-looking side salad or a bland chicken sandwich. However, according to Joanne Lichten, RD, author of Eat Out Healthy, “not only is fast food healthier -thanks to restaurants cutting out trans fats and loading up on fresh ingredients- there are many more good-for-you tasty choices.”
Whenever you need to grab a fast snack, you always have a choice –don’t we always do, anyway?
You know that just because menus are set with better options, it doesn’t mean healthy-sounding diet missiles have disappeared. So stick to the eat-right plan and save big on calories , sodium, and saturated fat.
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
4 large eggs, divided
1 teaspoon butter, divided
1. Combine dash of salt, dash of pepper, and two eggs in a small bowl. Stir with a whisk until just blended (do not overbeat).
2. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Melt 1/2 teaspoon butter in pan; swirl to coat. Add egg mixture to pan; cook 60 seconds or until eggs are the consistency of very soft scrambled eggs (center will still look wet), stirring constantly with a rubber spatula. Tilt pan while stirring to fill any holes with uncooked egg mixture. Run spatula around edges and under omelet to loosen it from pan. Push one end of omelet up onto front lip of pan. Roll other end of omelet toward lip to close omelet. Turn out onto a plate, seam side down. Repeat with remaining salt, pepper, eggs, and butter.
Nutrition Note: Eggs are naturally high in dietary cholesterol, but this omelet fit well within our fat and calorie guidelines.

Right Bite opens first shop in Dubai
Today’s busy lifestyle has paved the way for fast food to become a part of our regular diet, but here’s one good news to both your waistline and health – convenience foods get a health boost as Right Bite opens its first shop in Dubai!
Known for pioneering customized healthy meal deliveries in the UAE, Right Bite has announced the recent opening of its first outlet. Located in Jumeirah Lake Towers, the shop is aptly named ‘Right Bite NOW,’ a concept that focuses on good food fast. It was developed to allow individuals to sample Right Bite meals prior to signing up to their personalized programs, and for those who do not want to commit to a personalized program to allow them a chance to eat healthy. Right Bite NOW will cater to takeaway orders and deliveries, at the same time offer a small dine-in space, thus making healthy food choices more accessible to consumers.
