Oh! So you can eat out!

Saturday, May 05, 2012

Not to be deterred by my less than satisfying Olive Garden experience, I went to Uno Chicago Grill with a friend for dinner this evening. This was a much better adventure in eating out! My friend recently joined SP and has been logging her food as well...this made it easy to order something healthy without anyone trying to convince me to "go for it" or "get whatever." We decided to split a veggie, 5 grain thin crust pizza and each get a side dish. She got a salad and I got steamed broccoli. Well everything was soooo good! I figured it would up my calories a bit, but I didn't feel overly stuffed and I thought we'd made really good choices. Little did I know...

Tonight when I was logging my calories I went to Uno's website...they actually list all the nutrition values for everything on their menu! Very impressive! It's a great way to narrow down your choices before you even walk out the door. Turns out the pizza we split is only 290 calories per serving...and get this...a whole pizza is only 3 servings! So we only had 1.5 servings each....AMAZING! So thank you Uno for offering lots of healthy options, AND for listing it all on your website! I would highly recommend you to anyone looking to have a tasty, healthy meal out.

On another note, I found shoes to wear with the dress next Saturday...can't believe it's almost here. I get to see a lot of friends I haven't seen in a while and I'm very excited! Hopefully they will love the dress and the shoes and we will all have a fantastic time!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend! :)
