So my girlfriend is on a pretty serious diet and I want to respect that without sacrificing our ability to enjoy a great meal together. However, her feedback is that you don't know what the restaurant puts into the recipe to make it taste so great, and thus something healthy at home can be deadly while eating out. Unfortunately, I don't think I can disagree with her on this point and am thus reaching out to my fellow hounds for advice.
I am looking for a conversation friendly restaurant generally between Houston and 32nd that is committed to quality, healthy dining (but not vegan, no offense meant, I just love me some meat) with entrees priced around $12 - $20. Ideally there would be more than 1 or 2 healthy items on the menu so we can be repeat customers. Your suggestions are greatly appriciated.
