Thank you to everyone that supported the Inaugural Birdies for Boobies golf outing. We raised $715 for Barbells for Boobs and had a lot of fun!

Eating out when you are trying to stick to a nutrition plan can be one of the hardest things to negotiate. You really have to do your homework and ask lots of questions. Of course, the easiest thing to do is minimize the amount of meals you’re eating at restaurants. But we know we will find ourselves out to eat at some point, so how do we handle it?

Menu Minefield from the CrossFit Journal details how restaurant menus can be misleading and lack most of the important information needed to make good choices.

However, there are some tips on how to best order, what to avoid and what questions to ask. Also, there are some great recipes for making some of your restaurant favorites at home!

Which is a healthier restaurant choice, Brussels sprouts or taquitos?

If you're at the Cheesecake Factory, the answer might not be what you think.

Filed under "small plates and snacks," the Cheesecake Factory's crispy Brussels sprouts pack in 69 grams of fat, 45 grams of carbohydrates (22 grams of sugar) and 10 grams of protein—840 calories. By comparison, the chicken taquitos have 22 grams of fat, 31 grams of carbohydrates (5 grams of sugar) and 16 grams of protein, for 390 total calories.
