Can anyone suggest some healthy menu options from Cracker Barrel? We're going there this week, and I don't want to blow my diet. (I'm trying to stay under 1,700 daily calories). I checked their website, and the best I can come up with is grilled chicken tenderloin, corn, green beans, and maybe some applesauce.

Their grilled chicken tenderloins are pretty good. I'm not on a carb-restricted diet necessarily, but I usually look at the low carb section of the menu and then try to weed out the options that sound like they have high fat components: like the "smothered" grilled chicken tenderloins. They have pinto beans which would be high fiber, and you can always take your own dressing to use on a side salad...

Thank you! We're heading out for our day of movies and shopping, and I'm ready for Cracker Barrel. I have my calories mapped out for the day and I WILL NOT STRAY! Smile

Also, consider sharing a meal, or taking half home for later on. There isn't much at Cracker Barrel that is great for you, but you can mitigate it...
