Guide to Ordering Takeout or Food Delivery

If you are in New Zealand, there are many shopping apps, including those that are owned by eateries, where people can order for food.

  • Understand the terms: You should be on the lookout for things like “buttered, breaded, crunchy, cheesy and creamy” since they always mean that the food will have higher calories. Go for grilled or roasted instead of fried.
  • Incorporate major food groups: There is a tendency for people who are ordering in food to go for refined carbohydrates which are dangerous and might harm them in future. Make it deliberate to order from all food groups.
  • Choose your sides wisely: ordering high caloric foods such as fries on the side or a soda might sound like a good plan for a lazy evening, but it eventually tops up your bill and enables you to make unhealthy choices. Go for small portions of sides and choose vegetables, water or fruits where possible.
  • Consider children’s menu: you do not always have to order a big portion of food if you are not too hungry. You will end up paying less. Go for an eatery that offers variety.

Always ensure that the place where you are ordering your food from falls within your budget. You should also spend time going through the menu to see if they have food that is healthy and has gotten good reviews from people who have ordered from them before.
