I checked out their web site this morning and decided on the Spaghetti with Mushroom Sauce. I'm going to see if I can get the senior portion which is even lower in calories, but then, leftovers are always good.

Great links! I appreciate them. I usually get the same thing when we go - and I've only ever gone with my work crew, since it's right down the street from our office. The spinach and cheese ravioli and the minestrone is very good and economical, calorie-wise.
I'm eyeballing the whole wheat pasta with mushroom and meat sauce though.. hmm!
I am a planner, too; I know what I *usually* eat at OSF (because we go there primarily when we're running the next day!), but I appreciate the links and reminder to check to see what the options are now.

I am a planner and when it comes to eating out I have to have a plan. If I can I like to research the menu items and calories of different things and have an idea of what I want to eat before I get there.
I don't care what YOU eat! However knowledge is power. Everyone is different and at different points in the fitness journey. I thought I would share with you two web sites that have great info for your dinning pleasure at the OLD Spaghetti Factory. I found it interesting, and well things I thought I eat there as 'healthy' were NOT the best options, and things I stayed away from but would of loved to have had turned out to be a better choice.
This is a website called healthy dining finder (I'd never heard of it before) and has only the 'healthy' options at OSF (this link is to the Vancouver WA store, so don't get confused with the address). As I looked at it, it seams that most of the dishes were under 600 calories.
Hope the links work and that you find it of some use. I promise that I will keep coach skinny B quite. (I may have to shut her up with a donut! )
