From Nandos to All Bar One
There's still time to cash in on the government's 'Eat Out To Help Out' scheme and get 50% discount off your bill. Launched this month, the scheme runs until 31st August and so far has been used more than 35 million times.
Not sure how it works? Let us explain. You're allowed 50% off your food, up to the value of £10. You won't get a discount on alcoholic drinks, but it does apply to food and soft drinks. Oh, and it's only valid on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays until the end of the month. The government website neatly lays it all out for you should you want to sink your teeth into the finer T&Cs.
One thing we do need to stress is that you need to act fast. Some London restaurants were already fully booked before the scheme even launched, but lucky for you, there are still thousands of options all over the country with availability. Keen to take advantage of offer with a cold drink in hand and a meal cooked by someone else, without totally veto-ing all nutrient-dense food altogether? WH read your mind.
Harley Street registered nutritionist Emily English (@emthenutritionist) has handpicked what she'd eat at eight of the Eat Out scheme's most popular chains, from Wagamama, to Pizza Express, to Nando's. Her response? 'Eating out is good for the soul. Delicious food doesn’t have to compromise good health—remember, the nutrient-dense option isn’t necessarily the boring one'.
