If you're on a diet & don't want to explain yourself

Healthy dishes at these Miami restaurants

You’re on a diet but others are not. This is where you’re going and what you’re eating.

If you’re still on a diet, hang in there. This Dry January is particularly rough.
For those going out to dinner or ordering takeout these are some restaurants where you can still eat healthy and clean while everyone else gets what they want.

We’ll leave them here so you can subtlety suggest them when planning your next meal. Whoever you are dining with doesn’t have to know you are on a diet because it’s annoying to always be explaining yourself. You’ve picked the best restaurant for your dietary needs and the best restaurant for them to stay quiet and enjoy whatever they want.
