My nutrition homework for this weekend was to show what is in my favorite restaurant meals. Here are a few examples!
My family loves Red Lobster. We have been trying to be better though, and staying away from eating out so much. Our homework assignment this week is to find out what is in OUR FAVORITE restaurant foods.
I love to get the Create Your Own Feast Meal, you can choose 2 or 3 different items along with a salad, and a side.
1 Cheddar Bay Biscuit: 150 Calories, 350 Sodium,
Garden Salad: 90 Calories, 105 Sodium
Wild Rice Pilaf: 180 Calories, 650 Sodium
Garlic Shrimp Scampi: 180 Calories, 1440 Sodium
Garlic Grilled Shrimp: 60 Calories, 580 Sodium
Total Calories: 660
Total Sodium: 3,125mg
Let's check my favorite down the street Red Robin. I LOVE me a GOOD burger!!
The Banzai Burger customized to my liking. Hopefully a bit more healthy with
NO Mayo, and Add a Whole Grain Bun!
Side of Fries with your Burger, right???
Sodium- 444 mg
Total Calories: 1,160
Total Sodium: 1,583 mg
THAT is with the healthier choice option, more if you go with the ORIGINAL!
Ok with my new healthier lifestyle, I do usually go for the side salad instead of fries, but a point is trying to be made here! What's in your FAVORITE?
To burn off my burger with exercise, it would take me at least 5 days of at least 60 minutes of hard working fitness from this past week to do it!
