Going to a new restaurant? Take 5 minutes and research the food.

Especially if you are going on a date or trying to impress someone, starting blankly at a menu trying to calculate carbs in your head and/or trying to figure out what you can eat as a hypoglycemic (and, in my case, a picky eater) isn’t good. So, do yourself a favor and take five minutes and research the menu ahead of time. Most restaurants have their menus online these days and many even have their nutritional information posted for you.

Example:

I was going to P.F. Changs with some of my friends and I happened to look online ahead of time. What I ended up ordering is NOT what I would have ordered had I not looked ahead of time. what I thought was one of the healthiest options was on of the worst. And, it was loaded with hidden carbs. I walked in educated, and ready to eat and I walked out happy and not sick because of it.
