Light menu – 8/3/17

Tonight we had dinner at a family-oriented Italian chain restaurant. Utah is not known for its great culinary scene and sometimes it is better to just go with something familiar.

We start with a lightly dressed salad and I have half a breadstick.


For my main course I choose something from the “light” menu, under 600 calories. The shrimp scampi with vegetables and angel hair pasta looks like a lot for 600 calories. My solution to this is to eat the shrimp and vegetables and just eat a little of the pasta. And it is really no problem since the pasta is overcooked.

Shrimps scampi with asparagus, tomatoes, and angel hair pasta

By not eating much of the pasta I have avoided most of the sauce as well. As a reward I eat the other half of the breadstick. I am full but not stuffed, perfect!
