Navigating Takeout Menus for Healthy Choices

Maintaining a balanced diet while enjoying delicious takeout can be a challenging task, but eating clean shouldn't mean compromising on taste. Let’s explore the best strategies to navigate a takeout menu for healthy choices, ensuring that your takeout order not only satisfies your taste buds but also supports your well-being. 


1. The Power of Protein

Chicken, meats and seafood are excellent sources of protein that will satisfy your cravings for a delectable dish.  At Sardi's Peruvian Chicken, we pride ourselves on our signature dish - succulent and flavorful Peruvian chicken. Our chicken is a healthy protein option that is low in saturated fats and high in essential nutrients. Make our Pollo a la Brasa as the centerpiece of your meal for a fulfilling and wholesome experience. You can also try our lamb chops, gulf shrimp skewers, or signature salmon.


2. Embrace the Abundance of Fresh Veggies

Eating clean means incorporating plenty of fresh vegetables into your diet, and we've got you covered. We serve a wide array of colorful and nutritious vegetable sides, including green beans, sweet corn, and brussel sprouts with carrots. Our De Casa and El Greco salads are also delicious and filling. These fiber-rich options not only boost your immune system but also aid digestion and promote overall well-being.


3. Mindful Sides and Sauces

It's essential to make conscious choices with sides and sauces. Opt for healthier sides like mixed vegetables or white rice. Choose from one of our signature sauces to flavor your healthier dishes the way you like them with that Sardi’s flair. 




4. Balanced Combination Platters

If you find it difficult to decide on a single dish, our combination platters are the perfect solution. These thoughtfully curated meals offer a balanced blend of proteins, grains, and veggies. They are also ideal for a healthy family dinner as they cater to different taste preferences while ensuring a well-rounded meal for everyone.


5. Portion Control

Takeout orders often come in generous portions. To stay on the healthy side, practice portion control. Share your dishes with family members or save half for later. This way, you can enjoy the deliciousness of Sardi’s without feeling guilty about excessive calorie intake.


6. Hydration is Key

Don't forget the importance of staying hydrated. Instead of sugary or high-calorie drinks, opt for water or unsweetened beverages to accompany your meal when you can. Staying hydrated is essential for digestion, metabolism, and overall health.
