So I was talking with a couple of my co-workers today and was telling them how Mom and I have found a couple of restaurants that will special cook our food...no butter, no salt, steamed, clean water (boiled shrimp/crab)...even no butter/no oil chicken fajitas with fresh avocado (instead of guacamole) complete with corn tortillas instead of flour.
So, for those of you that live in the Houston area...I thought I would share. I think the restaurants deserve a plug for being willing (with a smile) to cook food to order for people trying to eat healthier. Of course, portion control is still up to the diner. Portions are always bigger than recommended!! So here is our list. I will add restaurants as we find them:
- Blue Water Seafood- http://www.bluewaterseafoodonline.com/ We eat at the location at FM 1960 and 290 (Ask for Sarah)
- Mamacitas 290 • (281) 469 - 3663
- Outback-I am assuming any of them. We have special ordered various menu items and they have cooked to our specifications. They have great steamed veggies!
Also, we tried a new recipe tonite (recommended by Beverly Jennings)...
Mom cooked boneless/skinless chicken breasts (4) Frozen
Added a jar of Newman's Own Natural Salsa (lowest sodium I could find)
A package of lower sodium taco seasoning- (mix the taco seasoning in with the salsa)
About 8 oz of lower sodium (organic) chicken broth
Toss all of that in the crock pot for the day...Take chicken out and shred...put back in crock pot and simmer.
We would typically eat it with corn tortillas...but we were out...so whole wheat flour tortillas instead. Fresh Avocado too!
Yummy!!! Thanks Mama Jennings!
