Asian food…pretty tough to get low carb food here if you just look directly at the menu. But with a few adjustments, you can get some food that is satisfying.

My wife loves to order orange peel beef, but with several modifications. Ask for the beef to be unbreaded, and tossed with a light amount of sauce.

Next, ask for steamed veggies instead of rice. They accommodate you quite easily and it tastes great! You can do that with several dishes their, but try to avoid ones that are breaded or deep fried!


Low Carb Lifestyle and Dining Out: It’s easier than you think!

My wife Joan and I like…no, LOVE to go out to eat. We also don’t like spilling out of our clothes and getting those lines across our tummies from where out stomaches are forced to fold on themselves.

We know that it may seem impossible to eat at a restaurant and stick to a low carb diet. It may seem easier to just say, “There aren’t any low carb items that I want to eat. And if there are,  they are at least $20 per entree.”

We get that. We eat on a budget, but we have also learned how to “manipulate” menu’s to serve our dietary needs. 

The purpose of this blog, is to give low carbers/paleo dieters options. Options that detail which restaurants are available, and which items can be modified to keep you on track.
