Me too! There are a few choices you can make when eating out, but not many!
Salad bars are good, if you know what to pick... I just stay away from the prepared salads there like macaroni, potato, even tuna salad on a salad bar can have hidden carbs, like bread crumbs. I usually stick with salad greens like romaine lettuce, cucumbers, raddish etc. Shredded cheese, and lean ham, real bacon bits not the fake ones.... and oil and vinegar dressing... but overall you are right you control the ingredients when you make your meals at home. We Can Do This!!
