Room Service may be the ultimate in hotel convenience, but it can also be your downfall, in temptation.
The number of times I take a look at the room service menu and feel tempted to gorge on all the wrong things!
It's human nature to want what you shouldn't need, but that doesn't mean you need to give in to temptation.
Please be CAREFUL: Most hotels offer far less superior food for their eat-in-room clientele than they do for their restaurant diners. Many of the options on the menu will be snacks, packed with heavy carbohydrates and processed foods, rather than quality meals.
You’ve got fries, sauces, and potato chips to contend with, as well as the mini bar calling you from across the room, so keep your wits about you and try to be sensible.
Scan your in-room menu for the same healthy options you would choose in the hotel dining room. Don’t be tempted by the list of poor food choices on your order card, like pastries and muffins, tempting as they may seem. They won’t keep you feeling full for very long.
If you're ordering breakfast, ensure that you place your order in time the night before, and again make sure that you plan your order to arrive in time for you to eat it at a leisurely pace, according to your day’s schedule, ideally after your morning workout.
Choose eggs (any style), fresh fruit and yoghurt, oatmeal or a cooked meal.
Avoid cereal and toast, pastries, pancakes, cinnamon toast or waffles - all carbs, full of sugar that will NOT keep you feeling full for very long, meaning that halfway through your mid-morning meeting, your stomach will start to rumble, and you'll find it hard to concentrate!
For any other meal, lunch or dinner, look at all your options and choose something ‘clean’ – meat, fish or vegetarian, with plenty of vegetables or salad.
Don’t be swayed by comfort food, however stressful your day has been. You’ll only end up feeling bloated, tired and heavy afterwards.
Here are some of the foods you should aim to avoid:
Burgers, Club Sandwiches, Fries, Sandwiches, Caesar Salad, Lasagne, Spaghetti, Pasta dishes, Jacket Potato, Sausages, Desserts
Instead opt for fish (without batter), steak, chicken, lamb or beef, with vegetables - the simpler the better.
If you want a dish with sauce, ask for the sauce on the side. That way you can determine how much you want, without smothering your food in goo.
And just because the mini-bar is there, and more than likely chargeable to expenses, don’t go overboard.
If you want something to eat, order it from the room service menu instead of eating potato chips, sugar coated nuts or chocolate from the mini-bar selection.
In all honesty, if you have the option, you’d be better off eating in the hotel restaurant.
You’ll have more choice, better quality food, and it will give you a chance to get out of your room and relieve travelling boredom.
It will also prevent you from sitting for hours, watching TV, drinking and eating unhealthy snacks from the mini bar and being alone.
