http://www.mnn.com/food/healthy-eating/blogs/6-tips-for-making-healthy-choices-when-youre-eating-out-on-a-budget

tips in summary:

1. “Simple food is often cheap, and often healthier.” (i.e. ordering soups and salads over some elaborate dish)
2. Dine out at food carts! mmm.
3. “Ethnic food is a favorite in our household. It is not only flavorful but often healthier…When possible, I like to order lamb, as most often it is 100 percent pasture raised and high-quality meat”
4. “As mentioned in my first point, soups are often really cheap. I look for places that make soups from scratch. This may take going to a nicer restaurant, but their soups will often be priced reasonably. If you go to an ethnic restaurant, such as Indian, it can be especially cheap! ”
5. Grab some items at a grocery store for an impromptu picnic.
6. “Of course, eating with another person can easily bring down your overall cost per person.” (i ❤ sharing!)
