Light menu – 8/3/17

Tonight we had dinner at a family-oriented Italian chain restaurant. Utah is not known for its great culinary scene and sometimes it is better to just go with something familiar.

We start with a lightly dressed salad and I have half a breadstick.

Salad

For my main course I choose something from the “light” menu, under 600 calories. The shrimp scampi with vegetables and angel hair pasta looks like a lot for 600 calories. My solution to this is to eat the shrimp and vegetables and just eat a little of the pasta. And it is really no problem since the pasta is overcooked.

By not eating much of the pasta I have avoided most of the sauce as well. As a reward I eat the other half of the breadstick. I am full but not stuffed, perfect!
