WHAT should I order?
SO, you're going out to eat tonight.
Restaurant of choice?
California Pizza Kitchen.
You're stressing out because you have done SO well with your eating and your working out this week and you don't want to throw it all away just because its the weekend.
a cup of Sedona Tortilla Soup
5 grams of fat
22 grams of carbs
4 grams of protein
1/2 Field Greens Salad
(ask for fat free balsalmic dressing)
8 grams of fat (this is from the nuts, so it's good fat!)
16 grams of carbs
2 grams of fiber
.5 grams of protein
This whole meal totals to about 330 calories. You can't beat that! The soup just so happens to be one of my FAVORITE things at CPK. Calorie counting, or not. It has such a good flavor. The salad is delicious with diced pears and candied walnuts, and you can't even tell the difference with the fat free balsalmic dressing. Skip the bread beforehand. It adds unnecessary calories, and let's be honest it's not THAT good.
Unless you're planning on sharing your dessert with the 6 other people at your table I say skip it. Go get yourself soome non-fat frozen yogurt instead. YUM!
