Tonight I'm joining friends for dinner at a local restaurant. Since joining SP, I have eaten out only once, and learned my lesson about ordering. Recently, a friend and I went to lunch where I confidently ordered a grilled salmon, thinking the calories would be around 300. While we were waiting for our entrees, I used my phone to check the nutritional value list the restaurant had on their website. The salmon was 592 calories! Yikes!
So, I learned - check the restaurant menu out ahead of time ... doesn't assume. And, don't be shy about special ordering.
Fortunately, the restaurant tonight specializes in fish and will prep it any way you want... but I'll still see what their website has to say before going.
