Eating Hearty While Staying Healthy

Are you ready to take a break?  Tired of the leftovers or quick 30-minute meals you usually eat during the week?  Then it is time you and your partner took a break from the home kitchen and pantry to go out to one of the local restaurants for dinner instead.  You can even make a date out of it, going to see one of the latest movies or shows, and then having a late dinner at a favorite place.  Or you can use a cheap joes coupon to go to one of the most discriminating places you can eat at, where the food is good and tasty, the atmosphere is comfortable and the prices are reasonable.  A perfect way to get a break from the drudgery that accompanies the daily dinner after work routine.

Of course, a night out for a meal can be more than just a break from the routine.  When I want to remind my wife that she is really appreciated I will take her out for a special meal or dinner.  She often will do the same for me, especially since she knows I like to enjoy some foreign cuisines.  Often she will use a Groupon from a local restaurant that specializes in Oriental or Latin cuisine just to satisfy my wants, and to let us have a change from our home meals.  

Once she even took me to enjoy a meal at a Moroccan restaurant – did we enjoy that!  To show my gratitude I took her out to a true seafood place the next trip – my wife is one of those persons who will eat anything that swims.  Using local restaurant Groupon coupons makes it possible to eat out every week.

Often we take advantage of local restaurant specials.  Our town has an annual week in which most of the local restaurants participate where they offer a selection of their special meals for a fixed price.  We can go wild, going to different restaurants and trying their latest creations and popular signature meals.  It even helps us keep in shape, since preparing for that special week gives extra incentive to work out to keep from gaining extra weight when going to those specials!  Our exercise regimen is built into our routine – often we go directly from the gym to one of our favorite restaurants.  That is how we manage to combine good physical conditioning with regular quality dining.
