I know eating out can be a real challenge sometimes. Luckily in California you can pretty much find healthy choices in any restaurant. Come home with me to Hicksville USA and I will show you a real challenge. Fried Okra anyone? Here are some things that I use to help me stay the course: If I know what kind of restaurant we are going to i.e., Italian, Mexican, etc. I start thinking of things I like there that stay close to my desired plan. Then once I get the menu in hand I start searching for those things. If I am already thinking of healthy choices, I am less likely to freak out that they have nothing and just order crap or nothing (not eating is not a good choice either) If I am looking at the menu and there really isn’t anything that goes with my plan, like the Mexican place we went last week, I start a conversation with the server. I make a joke of the fact that I am about to make irritating requests. They generally want me to feel comfortable so they say something like “Oh, no it’s fine, what do you want” Then I explain I don’t eat wheat or rice or corn (HI, MEXICAN). The server at the Mexican place basically brought me a plate of meat and grilled onions/peppers. The meat was awesome and the server didn’t mind a bit. Feel free to change the plate however you see fit! If they are complete asses about it, then go with plan B. I do occasionally say I have a wheat or corn sensitivity (it’s not a lie because everyone does) or flat out say I am allergic to something. This will almost always get me what I want to order.
