Portion control is a big part of Spark. I like the smaller portion option at Carrabas and Outback. You can get a small portion of meat, steamed vegetables and salad with dressing on the side. At the beach Hemingway's 10 for $10 menu offers several options as they are all smaller portion, but you have to be careful.

We don't eat out a lot, now. We used to...to the point that it was routine and no longer special. Now that we do it less, it's so much more special. One of my fav places to go is Ozone's Pizza Pub. I know...pizza! We split a medium veg out pizza (all veggies) and ask them to make it extra light on the mozerella cheese. I make sure I pour on the water the next day to flush out the sodium.

Thought a list of "safe" restaurants might be nice. We're so lucky to have lots of great seafood, but not all if it is Spark-friendly! I'll post one every time we go out (about once a week). Please join in everybody!
Peg Leg Pete's, Pensacola Beach - Lots of fried stuff and sandwiches here, but also blackened grouper (my fave), grilled grouper, scallops, shrimp, chicken, all yummy. Sauces are served on the side. They come with a fresh veggie and rice that is really salty that I usually just have a couple bites of, and a piece of lightly buttered garlic toast that I usually eat. Sauces come on the side and are delicious.
They also have steaks, but I've never had one there so can't attest as to their worthiness.
Prices are $15-$20 for the entrees I described. I ate there last night, finished all but some of the rice and was full but not overfull.
