Eating Out - my former nemesis
Friday, February 01, 2013
So, before this drastic lifestyle change, we used to eat out. A lot. And my kids have been begging me to go to Red Robin. Well, I just haven't felt strong enough to do it, so I've put them off. (I LOVE the fries at RR).
Today, however, I decided I have to actually LIVE like this, so I'd better start figuring out how. So, off to Red Robin we went.
I looked at the salads.... either full of fried chicken, tortilla chips, sour cream or other "not so good" things.... plus, I didn't want a salad.. I wanted a BURGER.
Then, I spotted that they will put any burger in to a lettuce wrap for you... huh. This might work! So, I ordered a chicken burger (plain, of course) with a bunch of veggies, and extra pickles - just like I like my burgers. THEN, miracle of miracles... I asked the waitress to SUBSITUTE FRIES with broccoli!! Who the heck IS this crazy woman!!
My wonderful children did not pick fries either... so I was not even tempted to reach over and eat some of theirs.
So, there it is. A successful trip to a restaurant, and Red Robin even!! It's a big step, and a huge win in the win column!
