Eat cooked food: You can reduce the risk (but not eliminate it) by eating food that has been freshly well-cooked. You want to avoid food that has been sitting out at room temperature, especially milk products like yogurt that grow bacteria quickly, mayonnaise, etc. Make sure the place you are eating in looks clean. Eat only well-cooked hamburgers, chicken and eggs.
