Restaurants and Trader Joes prepared offerings

Introduction

I find most restaurants servings way too big, way to reliant on processed foods, way too salty, with far too many calories, usually enough for 2 days worth of meals. So when I find something that works, I celebrate. The nutrition count is for Applebee's 550 calorie sirloin with asiago cheese and peppercorns, and red potatoes, just so I could create this list.

Ingredients

    Panera: Power Bowl Breakfast with fresh fruit cup.
    Choose turkey or beef. I love the beef with tomato and egg! A tasty, beautiful way to start the day!!

    Applebees: Several items in the Weight Watchers section will work, but still are heavy on the sodium. I like the sirloin selection.

    Chick Fil A: Grilled chicken salad with a side of a medium fruit cup. You'll have a delightful collection of fresh veggies and fruit. And when i add the fruit cup to the fruit that comes on the salad, I don't need to add their highly processed dressing. Still has quite a bit of sodium.

    Crackers on the water in Crystal River, FL
    Spinach Salad with grilled salmon or grouper.
    Sodium is a problem, but otherwise the meal is right on target!!

Tips

McDonalds is giving us calorie counts and listing ingredients. So the fresh apples come with sugar coated walnuts and sugared yogurt. It would be a great breakfast or snack with honey on the side and plain walnuts!! And the low calorie fish sandwich could be improved by getting rid of the white flour bun, and switching to a grated hard cheese. What about a green salad with the fish cut up on top of it?


Directions

Trader Joes
Check the Salad Bar: Super Spinach Salad was super!
Tarte Aux Champignons was fantastic. A serving is 1/2 the pizza, but I like to eat 1/4 the pizza along with some fruit and a couple of veggies so I can get in my fiber for the meal.
Mixed grains with vegetables is completely cooked and can simply be defrosted and eaten cold, or heated for a main dish. Add some broth for a soup.

Their Greek Yogurt has ONLY the 5 live cultures added after pasteurization. Nope. Nothing else.

And could I just say the Roasted Ground Flax Seed with Blueberries has a small amount of sweetener of some kind (maybe sugar) but it is a delicious indulgence in my health!
