Eating at the Borgotta Casino in Atlantic City

Sunday, December 09, 2012

I knew this would be a challenge for me and I was right. I ate/shared four appetizers with my husband for dinner. This was the easy part since we were only interested in the apps. However, I made the mistake of perusing the dessert menu and chose Baked Alaska to finish the meal. Now, the only plus side I can find to this dessert is the meringue has some protein and the ice cream is a dairy serving (albeit an unhealthy one). Once I added this all up, I found I was still within my calorie range for the day since I had almost nothing else to eat all day. I do not recommend this as a general practice, but it worked for me for day one of my mini-vacation. We will have to see how I do on day two.

    Eating out is fun and sometimes good for you.

    I am in South africa on holiday visitting family. We went to the Emperors casino and I had a lovely steak and oven roasted veggies. The desert was a small helping of chocolate gateue.

    All work (dieting) and no play (eating what you want) makes Johnny (you) a dull boy!
    What would life be like if we couldn't live a little. You did great to avoid eating too much the rest of the day. I did the same on Sunday when my family ate at the club. They had a buffet to die for and I was afraid my life was over, but I stuck to my nutritional goals. I filled up on fruit and plenty of salad. I was so busy watching everyone over indulge I felt stuffed.

    Happy Holidays!

    That sounds so good. Not healthy but good.
