Trying to stay healthy when you eat out a lot can be tricky, especially if you're visiting somewhere new and exciting. No matter how much restraint you may have, it's always tempting to go for your favourite cheese-infused dish instead of a sensible salad.
However, if you opt for a place that sells great, tasty and healthy bites, you won't have to worry when browsing the menu.
Hull and its surrounding areas are full of eateries that promote a healthier lifestyle, so why not tuck in?
