Crackle Barrel: Are you SERIOUS? I guess smoothing everything in gravy or boiling all your veggies with SALT PORK is healthy? I guess that basket of a dozen biscuits is healthy too right.
Texas Roadhouse: Really since when is a baked potato the size of a NFL football covered in butter, bacon and cheese healthy?
Everything out there that is not prepped and cooked by you is unhealthy. It is not the food its self it is the portion. Portion control is what everyone needs. I know I eat way to much but I love food and I cook so dam good I can't help it.
Follow weight watchers point program you can have what ever food you want it is all about the portions.
Drink to many soda's and you will go nuts and strangle your wife with a extension cord. Drinking too much water can kill you to. Eat too much fish from the east coast and your mercury levels will be off the chart.
Olive Garden has more than just pasta. I usually get their endless soup or Chicken Marsala. Both are healthy.
Subway is a fast food place that is healthyish.
I usually get a 6" BLT, which isn't unhealthy. I get a lot of carbs from the bread though. It is still better than a burger bun soaked in grease from a nasty burger.
I usually get a steak from Crackle Barrel with steak fries (not the best, but I don't finish them), cole slaw and green beans.
All of these things minus the fries are healthy and better than anything that can be found on the McDonalds menu.
I do not finish the potato at Texas Roadhouse. As you said, portion control.
I have to agree, portion control is very important. I never realized how much I over ate until I started paying attention to portion control.
But if you look at the above. I listed healthy meals from 4 places that are perfectly acceptable on the go. Granted I adore Buffalo Wild Wings. I can't get enough of those greasy bastards! That is why I rarely eat at that place.
And for breakfast I prefer Bob Evans. Eggs, potatoes and sausage make a good breakfast and are less greasy than McDonalds (but not as tasty).
I love soda, but it is bad for you. Ever went out to eat with Europeans and you're the only one that orders soda? Yeah, you get balled out. Now imagine if you will that I was the only guy who went out to eat with 3 Lithuanian women! My ass became their chew toy! "You shouldn't order an energy drink for dinner, it is bad for you." "Don't eat so much gravy with your mashed potatoes." "Why do you eat the fat on your steak?" "You sure like deserts." Granted these were comments made over a long period of time, but still.
Thing is, they ate 3 times the amount of food that I ate. Damn those girls can eat.
