I think every Restaurant needs to have Duabetic friendly foods on their Menus even Sugar Free Deserts as well . Anybody agree with me?

If you had the class you know what you can eat , You make picks and play the number game. You can have anything you want but by the numers and amount per serving. Don't set yourself up to fail .
Look at the book for differents place to eat …

My problems with the resturaunts is that their vegetable choices are often in the high glycemic index category, like potatoes and corn. Yes they're vegetables, but not very friendly to people with diabetes.

One resturaunt chain which has impressed me is Ruby Tuesdays. They have lower GI items for their side dish veggie choices and they don't have a lot of sauces or goo covering them. They're my new favorite resturaunt to go to If I have a choice, and there's one where I am.

OG's food may TASTE good, but if you look at their menu, not so friendly to PWDs and their dietary needs. They have a lot of starchy high carb foods on their menu. I still prefer Ruby Tuesdays because of their lower carb veggie choices.

Most of the larger resturants are stepping up because more consumers are eager to learn the nutrionial value of the foods…Not that all adhere to it, but so many more on getting on the bandwagon..

Stopped at McDonald's for lunch on Wednesday and had one of their salads. I noticed that on the back of the paper place mat they put in the trays, they now list the nutritional values of the items on their menu. My Caesar Salad with grilled chicken had 220 calories and 13 grams of carb. The Caesar dressing added another 190 calories and 4 grams of carb! Yahoo!…I think they're getting it!
