Re: Being Friendly
That burger does sound good. I have become "one of those people", you know the kind... they ask lots of questions about the menu and how food is prepared, what the "secret" ingredients are, etc. I've always been a bit of a special order queen but that's only been made worst in recent months since I stop eating meat/ seafood and dairy. Now, I pretty much have to make healthy meal choices at every restaurant I go to.
I recently went to a French restaurant. The French are certainly not known for their light fare and every item on the menu was cooked in cream and smothered in butter. I ended up having a portobello mushroom (cooked without the cream and butter), substituted a few fries instead of mashed potatoes (full of cream and butter which I avoid) and veggies. My mom and friend probably eat 1000+ calories in their main entree while I ate far fewer, got to experience the new "hot" restaurant in town, and left feeling satisfied.
I guess what I took out of that experience is that I can eat at any restaurant and still eat healthy as I've never been to a restaurant that objects to making a few simple changes to keep their customers happy. This is a very good lesson for me as I prepare for 3 weeks in France this summer.
