How do you track your foods when eating out?
Saturday, March 29, 2014
I try to make healthier choices when I eat out.
Then I come home and look up what I ate, hoping it's a normal portion.
Today we went to Black Eyed Pea. I chose the half turkey sandwich (I asked what was on it and was told bread, turkey, lettuce, and tomato), and the Caesar salad that went with it. I took all of the croutons off of the salad and left most of the dressing in the bottom of the dish. The sandwich came on bread that had been toasted with butter or oil and with cheese on the sandwich--I was not told about this or would have requested otherwise. I ate about 1/2 of the sandwich, then took the turkey out and ate that by itself.
So, now I find that I just consumed 700 calories???? 43 grams of fat??? 51 carbs??? For a half sandwich and small salad?
Obviously the numbers are not quite accurate because I did take off the croutons and left 1/2 of the bread and cheese on the plate, but how do I compensate to get accurate numbers for tracking?
Found a website that lists the nutritional breakdown of many restaurant items.
