Eating out: more options for low-salt, low-fat meals

Forget ever eating away from home again. That’s what the first nutritionist I saw after my angioplasty in 2012 told me about the new food life I’d have to live to help prevent another major artery blockage.

I could not accept that. Restaurant dining is one of the true pleasures in my life, plus a sign that I have moved on from being the poor kid I was when growing up. I could not simply sit at home and eat my gruel every day and night. So for the past 20 months, I’ve searched out restaurants that can accommodate my new needs, namely to serve me tasty low-salt, low-fat, low-sugar meals.

This blog is my attempt to help all of you in the same boat as me, for whatever health reason. To that end, I’ve created a recipes, and ingredient pages in addition to the eating away from home page to help you.

Check out my new restaurant finds here. They include some surprises, like a Houlihan’s that served me a wonderful low-salt lunch, to local favorites that are so nice in helping me navigate their menus to find dishes that fit my needs.

I don’t eat out as often as I did pre-surgery, but I am slowly building a list of places I can still enjoy. I hope this list helps you as well, please send me your choices from cities around the country to help broaden my list beyond my Midwest home base.
