My goal is to continue making healthy meals for my family as often as I can while realizing that I'm not Martha Stewart or Rachael Ray. And although I do have a full time job, my homemade meals aren't making me money. Don't get me wrong - I am not giving myself permission to go back to eating out three or four times a week. I am simply giving myself permission to use healthy eating out options as a last resort without feeling completely guilty. I have learned that eating out doesn't have to be completely bad for you.
Some of the healthier options we have discovered:
JITB - Grilled Chicken Strips (4 strips - w/o sauce = 180 calories, 2 g fat, 37 g protein)
Wendy's - Ultimate Chicken Grill Sandwich (w/o Mayo = 290 calories, 5 g fat, 25 g protein)
Arby's - Junior Roast Beef Sandwich (273 calories, 10 g fat, 15 g protein)
The Key To Eating Out: No FRIED Anything - Including FRIES!
