Should we eat out????
Monday, May 21, 2012
Check out this link about eating out. Please don't let it scare you and convince you that you should not eat out. Instead, look for the ideas that can help you make good choices.
The item that really caught my attention was the high level of sodium in entrees. I recently made what I though was a good choice at an Applebee's Restaurant. Calorie wise, protein, fat and carb wise, it was a good choice. However, it had more sodium than is a recommended daily amount.
I decided not to let it go. I found a contact email address and sent a letter expressing my concerns. I first got a reply saying that the email had been received and then a note that my concerns had been sent on to their nutritionists. Will it make a difference? I don't know. But if a lot of people let restaurants know that we want healthy food, maybe it will get better. Make change by making your voices heard.
