They are used to making changes to accommodate people’s dietary needs.

3. Salad

Studies show that people who start their meals off with soup and salad eat less calories during dinner.

That is reason enough to order a salad.

You can also opt for a salad as your main course.

Save yourself on calories by requesting your dressing on the side.
