Takeaways are known for being unhealthy – but they don’t have to be
Liziwe Matloha

WE ALL know takeaways aren’t the most nutritious choice, but who doesn’t enjoy a good burger and fries every now and then? Fast food is generally cheap and convenient, which is why it’s especially popular with those who don’t have much time to prepare a meal. But while this type of food is convenient, it’s not always the healthiest.

Some takeaway meals can take you over the recommended daily maximum amount of salt and fat, which can lead to various health problems such as heart disease and diabetes.

Try to avoid dishes that are creamy or deep-fried. Fried foods are usually loaded with fat and kilojoules. Dishes that include tomato-based sauces are a much healthier option because these types of sauces are usually lower in saturated fat and kilojoules. Also make sure you include plenty of vegetables.
