When you're dining out, you shouldn't have to worry about putting your health at risk. But certain restaurant violations and food choices could be doing just that. Learn the secrets restaurants keep that could be making you sick and the small changes you can make to protect yourself.
Secret: Decaffeinated coffee masks as caffeinated coffee.
If you order coffee past 8 p.m., it’s most likely decaf. Restaurants don’t want to wash two pots so they often use one and fill it with decaf. It saves them time and money to serve only one option.
Solution: If you need caffeine, order an espresso or cappuccino. Because these options are made when you order them, there is a better chance they are caffeinated.
