Personally I hate planning. I don't want to give up the spontaneity of sitting down with the menu and deciding then and there what I want to eat. So I have learned how to adapt menu items accordingly. Like others have said, most places are very accommodating with swapping out the starch for a vegetable, or leaving ingredients out. I eat out often and have no problems staying on track. If I am in doubt of anything, I just go for a steak or a bunless burger, two of my faves.

There was a time when I thought I would never be able to look another Cobb salad in the face, but I must have backed off on them for a bit because they seem like a great idea now. I have been able to find something most places, but I feel much more welcome in a place if there's actually a labelled low carb menu item.

I wanted eggs Benedict sans the muffin and asked about the sauce... if it contained wheat and it did. However, they offered to make the real thing (yolk, butter and lemon). It was very good! I will be back to that place!

I tend to go the "steak and broccoli" route whenever possible. Ribeye or prime rib, please!

However, I am going to a gathering with some buddies at the end of this month at a local Italian joint. They apparently make all of their pasta fresh. Good for the average carb-eatin' gal or gent! So, I took a peek at their menu and they actually have a meat and cheese platter with Italian cured sausages. Never tried one, but I think this would also be a great option for anyone looking to eat out at an Italian restaurant but not be the odd man out.

I think my husband and I are going to split a meat/cheese platter and get a small Caesar salad (hold the croutons!). Just gotta be a smart menu reader.

EDIT: And yes, I obsessively plan meals when I can grab a menu in advance. Hahah. NO SHAME!
