I went out to lunch at Cosi with a group of people at work. Now, when I am not watching what I eat, I just go to the restaurant, pick whatever I want and not worry about it. But, these days, I want to know as much as possible what I am eating. Luckily for me, Cosi posts the nutritional information about all their food! I love when places do that. So, I logged on to www.getcosi.comand I picked out some choices that I thought were good. My first thought was to go with the Grilled Chicken Sandwich that comes on their wonderful flat bread. I looked up the nutritional information….722 calories and 40 grams of fat! Ouch! My other favorite sandwich there is the Italiano. I checked that one out…747 calories and 42 grams of fat. Ouch again! Scrolling down, I came to the Light Turkey sandwich which is turkey, with this awesome honey mustard dressing on the flat bread. I looked up this one….390 calories and 5 grams of fat. We have a winner!! I went, stuck with my order, got carrots on the side and it was great. Sometimes I don’t check first and then when I get back, I find out that I could have gotten something else that would have been much better for me. That’s why its so important if you can, to find out first, so you can make a better choice and lose weight while eating out! Here are my favorite sites for getting restaurant nutritional information:
So, you can go out and make healthy choices, it just takes a little leg work first!
