When You Go Out For a Meal, What Type of Food Do You Tend to Eat?

Between being pressed for time and socializing with out of town guests, I I have been eating out and ordering in more than usual lately. I am learning how to order tasty dishes that are still healthy – like ordering tostada salads at my favorite Mexican restaurant without the fried tortilla.

I am interested in writing how to order healthy meals at different types of restaurants and want to know . . .

Due to what is available at restaurants in our (smallish) city, I end up making sushi, TexMex and Vietnamese as well as a few American classics that you can't find here. But we have some good local Thai, Chinese and Greek restaurants, and even the simple kebab/pizza shops are quite good. I never thought I would eat reindeer on pizza, but its really good!

In San Francisco I did Asian cuisine restaurants 95% of the time. I live in Texas now, so I go with what the best foods are here - TEX MEX and only rarely BBQ.

I can't eat the same thing over and over again. Our favorities are thai, chinese and italian though. If I was the only person involved in the decision, I would eat more mexican and indian too though. I tend to infuse a lot of greek/mediterranean style food into my cooking.

I hate going out to eat. You don't know what's in your food, not even the chef has a clue as to have many calories or fat grams are in the food! even the salads! For all I know they could be coating my lettuce in butter. I know that's what they do to those poor steamed veggies!

Thai food is my favorite, but lately I'm ALL about the sushi and Japanese cuisine. It's so healthy and delicious. I also like Mexican and Italian a lot, but not nearly as much as Thai or Japanese.

I usually go out for sushi, Mexican and Mediterranean. Food I do not go out for- Italian b/c I make it at home, Indian b/c I find it vile, and Chinese b/c I haven't really found any restaurants that I like by me.

I'll go out to ethnic places, where I can't cook what I'm sitting down to eat. Usually Italian, Sushi, or Pizza.

I'm a vegetarian in a meat-eaters paradise, so it's hard for me to find food. We don't have any close Greek/Medi and Indian food is VERY hit or VERY miss with me so I don't even try it. Most of the time I eat Mexican, Italian, or side dishes.

When I go out with friends for dinner, it's more often than not for sushi. I stick with the sashimi and miso soup and end up with a healthy, high protein/good fat dinner that leaves me happy and full!

I do sushi! I don't eat out a lot because I love to cook but the only thing I cannot make is sushi! When I go out, I forget that its white rice and just really enjoy it. Add a side of edamame and I am in heaven!
