How to Order like A Pro

Ordering etiquettes are as much important as the other dining etiquettes. Here are the proper manners you need to remember when placing orders.

  1. Be polite.

No matter what type of restaurant you are in any country you may be, being polite with your waiters plays a significant role in an effective communication. For starters, if the waiter greets you, greet back optimistically. Try not to intimidate waiters for them to be more efficient with their job. An intimidated waiter may get your orders wrong and consequently give you longer waiting time for your orders to be served.

  1. Place orders decisively.

Most of the time, drinks are the first orders and the first to be served. This is to give you a span of time to decide on what you would like to order from the menu. When the drinks are served, you can then place your meal orders and stay hydrated as you wait for them to be served.

However, if you have not yet made up your mind by the time the drinks are served or when your table attendant is waiting for it, it is important to let the waiter know that you have not yet decided and then ask for a moment. You can take as much time in deciding what you want, but holding your waiter as you keep changing your mind on your orders has an underlying impact on the overall atmosphere of the restaurant. Newcomers may become impatient with no one attending on their orders, or some orders are lying in the kitchen waiting to be served to other patrons. If you have then decided on your orders but the waiter is not nearby, closing the menu signals that you are ready to order and that the waiter can then attend to you.

  1. Communicate your inquiries and requests clearly.

When visiting a restaurant for the first time, you normally have no idea about the menu. You can ask what the waiter can recommend. If you have finally chosen your meal courses, be prepared for the extra questions, clarifications, and suggestions from your waiter. Be crystal clear and specific with your orders and speak about any request for the order. If you are ordering a coffee, specify if you want it with sugar and cream. If you want any special fillings, ask for it. If you have any allergies with some ingredient, you can try to ask if it is possible to have it removed from the dish.

In terms of bills, if your group wants a separate bill, state it beforehand, even before the drinks or appetizers. Asking it after the meal can again cause inconvenience to your service provider and even to you.

The good manners of placing orders are sometimes overlooked or even perceived as overrated. You can just place your orders and forget about it until it arrives. Nevertheless, exercising good ordering etiquettes may surprise you with convenience and good vibes all throughout your dining, as it keeps you away from troubles of wrong orders, long waiting times and bad-mood waiters.

Best Ways to Deal with Food Temptations

Food temptations seem to be especially strong when you are well on your way to a healthy lifestyle. Most especially when you are in the transition stage of becoming a vegetarian, you may have that solid willpower to persevere on a plant-based diet, but there will always be those circumstances of which you must have a head-on battle with your cravings. Special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, office events, and many others always correspond to festive eating, and if there is not much of a number of vegetarians around that circle, you might just give in and tell yourself “just this once”. Food temptations are also present on a daily basis, like passing through a non-vegetarian food stall of hamburgers or your old favorite fast-food chain on your way home.

Temptations are inevitable because of the many factors that trigger it aside from facing the situations aforementioned. Cravings may also spring out of emotions, boredom, hunger, and even the thought of being deprived of something. Whatever the case may be, you have to be ready to win it over.

Here are the tips on how to deal with food temptations.

  • Take It One Day At A Time

Changing from a non-vegetarian diet to plant-based one, or even altering a diet full of unhealthy stuff with a healthy eating lifestyle, the transition period is always the hardest part. Nonetheless, you need to keep your mind set firmly towards your goal. Being successful on a daily basis is already a great achievement. Over time, you may not notice it but your taste buds will eventually adopt your lifestyle and you will soon get used to not giving in to temptations.

  • Small Steps Matter

Stay hydrated. Be sure to drink an ample amount of water every day. Dehydration makes you feel hungry and hunger may stimulate your cravings. As much as possible, keep yourself away from craving triggers, but if it starts, you can try to suppress it by reminding yourself what you will have to start over again if you give in to it. When faced with temptations, you can instead walk away from it, but if in any case it is not possible, for instance, family events, you can instead fill yourself full with your veggie meals first, then make yourself busy helping out with the event.

  • Keep The Better Choices In; Keep The Bad Choices Out

Be sure to keep the good choices within your reach. When you are craving for something else, you can instead count on them to answer it. Do not store food that you are not supposed to eat in any place accessible. You may think of buying it for the visitors or for someone else, but having it close to you may lead you to fight against the temptation of trying it piece by piece by piece.

  • Be motivated

One great weapon you can use when fighting against temptation is motivation. Whatever the reasons you have for adopting a vegetarian diet, or any other healthy diet for that matter, amplify it as much as you can. Remember the long term gains you will have as compared to the short-term delights when giving in to temptations.
