12/15/15 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Sunday

Yesterday I mentioned we went to Skyline Chili for lunch.  This, of course, meant that I looked up the menu and nutritional facts before we left.  I was all set on getting a salad and ordering a grilled chicken wrap (no ranch/no cheese), eating only half of it.  But, then I noticed for an individual piece of chicken the sodium was 600mg.  This would just be for the chicken.  By the time I ate the rest of my meal I'm sure I would've been well over 1,000mg which is utterly ridiculous.  I started looking more closely and you won't believe that there was something lower in calories, sodium, and fat...a plain, small chili and noodles!  I was shocked.  I was tentative to oder it because to me a plain chicken wrap just seemed like it wouldn't have any hidden fat that I was unaware of.  But, my consultant has wanted me to be a little bolder in my choices and not so afraid of things so I ordered the plain chili and noodles (no cheese) for something like 200 calories, 450mg sodium, 7.5g of fat.  You should've seen my Mom's face.  Her jaw just about dropped - she couldn't believe I would order something like that.  It sounds silly but for so many years I've always just "played it safe" with foods when I'm out to eat.  The chili was delicious and a nice change.  It improved my confidence even more when I didn't gain any this morning!
