DarleneW101's Journal, 19 August 2012

We are having a family lunch at Joe's Crab Shack today. I thought it would be a good idea to look at the menu & nutritional info ahead of time. Their numbers seem a bit wacky to me. The ribeye is listed at 1150 cals, 82g fat, 26g carbs & 5g fiber. That must be with sides but it doesn't list any and I wasn't able to get the numbers to work using the info on the side items. An appetizer of mussels is listed at 1060 cals, 81g fat, 89g carbs & 5g fiber (wow - 3050 sodium!). I'm wondering where all the carbs & fiber is coming from. Even the Grilled Sunset Salmon is 890 cals, 45g fat, 66g carbs, 8g fiber and a whopping 3650 sodium.
I'm going to have to stick with simple items that I know and can enter as whole foods without a bunch of sauces. Maybe a garden salad with oil & vinegar, some crab legs, steamed old bay shrimp & steamed broccoli.

Wow, those seem high. I do know that Outback Steakhouse uses flour in their seasoning on steaks to help get that sear. Some places roll their baked potatoes in salt for a cripsy crust and they maybe counting that sodium in the main dish? Crab legs sound really good-can't go wrong there. Have a good Sunday.
