When I was a server and people asked what to order for a more healthy pick (besides salad) I would always suggest the fish. Go for a grilled fish or if you have to sauted. Although grilled or sauted fish may be cooked in oil it's much better for you than fried. Also, grilled chicken on a salad or grilled chiken in general is a good choice.

Also, many restaurants will hold the toppings/creams/etc if you ask. So if it says grilled salmon with a cream sauce, just ask for the sauce on the side or none at all. This actually saves the cooks a step. Don't be afraid to ask! As a server I welcomed questions, that is why they are there:)

Thanks for the comment. I try to watch everything and also try to guess what calories I am consuming. It is still difficult when much of my business is with Asian businesses. I end up at Japanese, Chinese and Korean restaurants so many foods are high in calories and sodium, MSG etc.

I try grilled anything (not fried) and go for as many veggies as possible. Try to stay away from anything fried, creamy (white) dressings & sauces & anything "loaded", like baked potatoes.

Hello, my name is Jay. I have a business lunch most days. I remember when you could go to a restaurant and order a low-cal or light meal, but few restaurants offer that today. I am tired of salads with oil/vinegar any suggestions?
