A lot of great ideas.
You can always substitute sliced tomatoes instead of the hash browns.

I try to order two poached eggs, 1 piece of whole grain toast, and one or two strips of bacon. That certainly won't blow your diet. If it comes with two pieces of toast and three pieces of bacon, just don't finish it but it you do, it still won't blow the diet but may require a few adjustments for the rest of the day.

Something else to consider is that most diners, or at least all the ones I've been to, offer their full menu 24 hours. So if you want to order something other than breakfast food, like a sandwich or salad, you'll probably be able to.

Most diners will have a plate with two eggs and a meat. Often it comes with toast and potatoes so I would say get wheat toast and tell them to ditch the potatoes.

All the recommendations you've gotten so far have been really good. I just wanted to say that eating two egg yolks at one time is perfectly fine for most people. I usually have a small veggie omelet with a side of fruit and/or whole wheat toast when I have breakfast out. There's also a diner near me that has a nice fruit and yogurt plate.

2 eggs over medium, but only eat one of the yolks.
a choice of lean protein, lean ham or cut the fat off yourself is sometimes better than turkey sausage or bacon. and only eat a portion of their 'portion' they give you.
whole wheat toast (wheat if they don't have it)
skim milk
coffee or tea

Most diners have at least some healthy options - a fruit plate, oatmeal, an egg-white omelette with veggies (skip the home fries). Or order a hard-boiled egg (so you don't have the oil) and wheat toast...

I just looked at the menu for Silver Diner, a chain near me, and they have all kinds of healthy options, and even list the nutritional value for the healthy stuff. One example is:

Local Honey Nut Granola Greek Yogurt Parfait
Wild Maine blueberries and bananas. 5.49
• Cal 263, Fat 1g, Sat. Fat 0g, Chol. 0mg, Fiber 3g

So, just order smart, and you should be fine!

I have a sort of dilemma that I need some advice about. My boss is taking my department out to breakfast tomorrow. I tried to get out of it but I have to go. We are just going to a nice diner but I am wondering what can I order without completely messing up my entire week? I want to have a plan ahead of time so that I don't try to figure out what to order on the spot and end up ordering pancakes (one of my biggest weaknesses). Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated!
