You may not be able to go out to eat at the moment but we have plenty of resources that can help you next time you do go to a restaurant or order a takeaway

Foods to eat in moderation

Foods containing monounsaturated (neutral) and polyunsaturated (good) fats such as avocados, seeds, nuts and oily fish should be consumed in a balanced way.
