Choose Wisely, Grasshopper

The office went out to lunch to celebrate a coworker's birthday.  I love lunch!  And I love that I can always find something 'point friendly', or healthy, on the menu.  I was a little dejected to discover the birthday boy chose Macaroni Grill today.  Of all the restaurants in America, that one just seemed like the worst possible place to find something manageable.

Boy, was I wrong!

They have 9 items under 560 calories and lots of salads.  I chose the Pollo Caprese with a nice fresh greens salad.

When they brought the bread and olive oil I made sure it was set across the table from me and out of reach.  When the salad arrived it had croutons so I gave those to a coworker. That may sound kind of high for lunch, but I had a small breakfast and a plain and simple grilled chicken salad for dinner, so all in all it was a pretty good day, considering I navigated Macaroni Grill!  

A person could get kind of used to feeling good like this!  I think I'm going to keep going!

Sorry to make you type in the "word verification" but I have been getting a ton of spammers lately. Just type in the word that you see and it should go through.
