I love Thai restaurants and spring rolls are a good choice--the fresh ones, not fried! And I alway ask for extra vegetables and ask for brown rice.
Brick oven pizza restaurants have plenty of clean choices, lots of interesting vegetable combinations and nice salads. Don't ask for extra cheese!
I adore places like Qdoba's, Chipotle, BajaFresh. I can always get a good meal there and you can make it as clean as you want it to be. I always get the bowl instead of the burrito---that huge tortilla is probably about 400-500 calories just on its own---who needs it?
Sometimes I even duck into a WholeFoods and get something from their hot bar or salad bar, and some supermarkets have salad bars too. Again, you can make it as clean as you want.
Greek, Lebanese, Egyptian, or Any Middle Eastern restaurants are good choices as long as you stay away from the fried stuff. A salad, some whole wheat pita and humus, stuffed grape leaves, tabouli, and lentil soup--- all good choices.
And whatever you do, stay away from buffets of any kind! It's way too easy to become overwhelmed by all the choices and overdo it!
