  • If dining out, ask for extra salad or vegetables on the side instead of chips.
  • Ask for your topping on the side (choose gravy or tomato-based sauces over white/cream-based sauces).
  • Steer clear of toppings that will increase the SmartPoints value such as ham and cheese.
  • Ask if the chef can oven-bake your schnitzel instead of deep frying.
  • Half your schnitzel and share with someone on your table or take the other half home.
  • Don’t be afraid to speak up. Chefs are usually happy to accommodate your dietary requirements.
