Last night, Dale and I joined his family visiting from Oregon for dinner at White Fence Farm in Lakewood, CO, which is famous for their family-style fried chicken dinners and country-style sides. For me, this meant one thing – calories.
Although delicious, I knew I could not eat the fried chicken, which believe me was not easy, but it is important I learn to find healthy choices – anywhere. This proved to be an easier test than I expected and I am proud to report, that instead of the fried chicken, I opted for the low-cal liver and onions, which was delicious. I know most people hate liver and onions, but fortunately they are a favorite of mine, so for me it was more of a treat, since I rarely have liver and onions in restaurants.
I did indulge a bit though and treated myself to 2 of the deep friend corn fritters, but thanks to a very light lunch I was still under my 1,600 calorie goal, even with the fried goodness.
