My favorite go-to meal from CB is egg whites (ask without butter or oil when cooking) with wheat toast (dry) and sugar free jelly on the side (they have that!) So yummy AND healthy. Sometimes I order the fruit on the side (it's usually a banana or strawberries)
I went to look at their menu (bad idea, I'm studying and hungry and 8 pounds of bacon sounds awesome right now!), and it totally struck me that they seem stuck in a 1990s time warp. While I appreciate that they have a low-carb menu, it seems surprising to me that they don't have any offerings identified as low-fat.
Anyway, I would suggest the grilled chicken tenderloins with a side salad, the grilled catfish, or perhaps the Oven Roasted Turkey Salad. Or modified breakfast, as Kappel suggested.
Ooooh yeah Cracker Barrel is a tough one!! Your best bet is eat light throughout the day but eat a raw veggie snack right before you go so you aren't starving. Then order grilled chicken and veggies but still watch your portions...they most likely will still drown the veggies in butter...and if there is something you really like from there hopefully someone else orders it and you can have a nice bite of it. Good luck, I know I personally owe a good pound or 2 to their country fried breakfast!!!
Can anyone suggest some healthy menu options from Cracker Barrel? We're going there this week, and I don't want to blow my diet. (I'm trying to stay under 1,500 daily calories). I checked their website, and the best I can come up with is grilled chicken tenderloin, corn, green beans, and maybe some applesauce.
