Dinner

What a long day! sorry I didn't get the Superfoods Challenge up this morning, but I should have it up tomorrow. Tonight I went to a family birthday dinner at Outback. I always try to plan ahead and figure out what I am going to order before I go out to eat. Luckily, Outback has its nutrition information on its website. I usually get a Victoria fillet (6oz) with 2 sides of steamed veggies (broccoli and/or green beans and/or asparagus, no butter) or side salad, but today I felt more like having a big salad.

I chose a new item: Aussie Chicken Cobb Salad. I told them: grilled chicken, no croutons, blue cheese crumbles instead of shredded jack and cheddar, dressing on the side. It was supposed to have chopped hard boiled eggs in it as well, but I swear there was less than a teaspoon of teeny, tiny bits of egg in the whole salad. The blue cheese was maybe a tablespoon total, and I dipped my fork and used about a half tablespoon of dressing. The grilled chicken was AWESOME. Loved it. The greens were average and the cherry tomatoes very good. Oh, there were maybe 6 bacon bits in there too.

WITH all the cheese, eggs, and croutons, the nutrition listed for this salad is 509 calories, 49 g protein, 17g carbs, 27 g fat. What I ate was surely quite a bit less. I will probably stick with steak in the future at Outback unless I am not that hungry. It was okay but I can make a better, on-plan Cobb salad at home with 2 cups of greens, half a cup of cherry tomatoes/green onions, some avocado and blue cheese, and a grilled chicken breast.

That's all for now.

Oh, so sorry that the tide didn't turn, after all. :(

Praying that all turns out well.
