Low Carb?

Enso | Jan 7, 201110:58 AM

We've been eating very low carb and really appreciating the easy weight loss and increased energy. We would still like to eat out every now and again. We can make Dino's, Red Robin, and Applebees work and are hoping to expand the repetoire.

Who else is low carb friendly? We're looking for affordable meals where the restaurant will substitute low carb foods for high carb ones. And tasty--if I wanted a plain broiled chicken breast I could do that at home, but I wouldn't do that because it would be too bland and boring. We use a lot of spices and herbs, and sauces for rich, full flavors.

"Very low carb" means, primarily:
* 10-20 grams of carbohydrate per meal
* no grains
* no beans/legumes
* no potatoes or corn
* no fruit
* no sugar/sweeteners

Hoping a few readers out there are into this eating style and can give some recommendations, or point out other suitable boards to post my request on.
