lesson learned

If you are going to go out to lunch....PLAN BEFORE YOU GO!!

We went to Chili's for lunch.  I remembered from ww-ing long ago, that the black bean patty on a wheat bun was always a good option so I opted for that with some steamed veggies.  Go me, right??

Um, WRONG.  I looked up the nutrition when I got back and then wheat bun has TEN points plus!  Yes, 10!! And the patty was that was 15 pts for an okay lunch.  Very disappointed by that!   Calorie-wise the burger was only 560 calories, 11 grams of fat, and 10 grams of not terrible but the carbs on the bun killed all that.  OUCH. 

Their grilled menu w/o sides would have been a much better option.  I could have had a sirloin or fried shrimp and veggies for 10.5, margarita grilled chicken for 6.5 or the spicy garlic & lime  grilled shrimp for 4.  And just added the steamed veggies for 0...

Oh well, live and learn, right?  I wrote it all down and will just have a salad for dinner or use some weekly points!

And the next time I go to chili's....I am having the steak! ;-)
