My Low Carb Meal at Chili’s Restaurant


 

Last week I met my friend Sue for lunch at Chili’s Grill & Bar. I love getting out with FUN friends! Especially SMART friends with GREAT conversation. πŸ™‚

I’ve been a little quiet online lately. Apologies for that, and for not sharing my daily low carb food journals with you like usual. I’ll get back to that. I got super busy with work and other things.

Anyway, back to my lunch…

The last time I ate at Chili’s with my friend Sherry, I had a modified (low carb) version of the Quesadilla Explosion Salad – which was delicious!! I should have had that again. πŸ™‚ Not that my meal this time was bad… that salad was just THAT good! Here’s a picture of it:

I was really torn on what to order for some reason. I scoured the menu, and the Chili’s Nutrition Facts of course, and finally just settled on something simple.

My usual at restaurants is a basic “Meat & Greens + Healthy Fat”.

I decided to go with “my usual” – a simple salmon & sides. I chose plain grilled salmon, steamed broccoli, and the “Spinach & Garlic Roasted Tomatoes”. I also added cheese & sour cream to my broccoli, and a side of avocado.

The Spinach & Garlic Roasted Tomatoes was a good side. I took the garlic off, because I had another meeting to go to after lunch (lol). And I only ate one of the tomatoes. The nutrition facts on those (as a separate side item) were higher carb than I prefer. The tomatoes were good though, and one of them was plenty.

I’m meeting Sherry for lunch again this week, but we’re going to a different place this time – another old favorite of mine. πŸ™‚ I’m really looking forward to a fun afternoon of laughs and brainstorming! Have you been out with your girl friends lately?? If not, make it a point! It’s good for the soul…

Stay tuned. I’ll share my “low carb pick” from my outing this week with you, and I’ll be back to posting my daily low carb food journals here for you too. I’ve missed it! It’s always nice to have someone to enjoy your meals with, even if we’re all eating at home and just chatting here online.

I’m *almost* finished with the big project that has had me busy offline, so I’ll share more again soon. It’s a writing project, so it kinda sucked my brain dry -lol.

Wishing you an awesome low carb week! πŸ™‚ *cheers*

Best,
