The Restaurant Breakfast Minefield
You know how it is when you got to a breakfast restaurateur Hug stuffed omelettes. plates of bacon and sausage and pancakes and buttered toast..
You know what. YOU are the customer. Ask for what you want , no butter, egg whites only, fruit instead of pancakes. Most restaurants that want your repeat business will allow you to substitute fruit for a side, usually for an additional charge, but it's one I'm happy to pay. Others will offer up a lower calorie/lower carb menu options - you just may have to look through the menu closely.
Case in point, Egg White omelette with a little veggie pasta sauce and lower fat Italian cheese, with fruit and un-buttered English muffin with a dab of jam.
Not totally low cal, but better than anything on the menu and really tasty.
