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.

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!
