Traveling. Food & Calories - Ihop


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

We all know that when traveling it can be a bear eating healthy - or eating as healthy as you can.

We've been on vacation for the past 10 days & I've been surprised by the restaurants that have changed their menu to attract the nutrition conscious.

One restaurant that totally surprised me was IHOP. Yes, IHOP. Home of the 2500 calorie breakfast and other unhealthy road blocks. First they have a separate menu section for those of us who are trying to eat healthy. Then, they will work to

de-fat and de-sugar other items. They now carry Sugar Free syrup! I found a Spinach, mushroom & Tomato omelet (made with egg substitute) and a side dish of fruit that totaled just 330 calories. Standard prep called for Swiss chess, but I axed the cheese for less calories & fat. TASTED GREAT!

    I love the Spinach, Tomato, Mushroom omelet. Even with the swiss cheese it is still easy to work into calories.

    Thanks for the info. I sometimes have to eat out unexpectedly, I always try to choose healthy choices, but sometimes I get home and go to the restaurant's website and find that "healthy meal" ---even a salad ---was not quite so healthy.

I have now gone to the websites of several restaurants I can find almost everywhere and have pre-chosen meals that are the best choices.

    Thank you so much for sharing this! We travel a lot and I'm always in trouble when eating out. This gives me another option that I didn't know of before. emoticon
