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...

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...

Electric multi cookers ie instant pot
OH yeah definitely no canning. I have a beautiful canner but it's way to big to use for everyday cooking since I no longer have a family at home to feed.

Add recipe for my use
I agree! One thing I discovered is that it's a good idea to include a description of what a "serving" size is, if your recipe makes more than one serving.
