You may call ahead and chat with someone at the restaurant to determine whether the cooking staff is willing to make changes to menu offerings in keeping with your dietary concerns. Independently owned restaurants are definitely more willing and able to help you. Most of the food at chain restaurants is pre-made.
The Eat-Clean Diet for Family and Kids
Eating out sometimes is hard on a diet program. Most restaurants have “heavy” food that may not be as nutritious as you’d always like. Private owned establishments may be more willing to change items on a dish such as substituting raw vegetables for fries. Don’t be afraid to ask either. In my experience most are willing to accommodate your need especially in this economy where they appreciate you patronage.
