Hi ladies and gents.

My hubby wants to go out for dinner as a celebration but im stuck as to where we can go.

Ive tried looking on line at frankie and bennys but can't find any nutrition info.

I know they do a lighter meal option looking at  mfp but it doesn't say fat content. just kcal info is given. 

Can anyone help me please? Xx

    Hi

    I've been to a beefeater and had a chicken breast in paprika spices with rice and salad.

    Also harvester do a simply chicken-grilled chicken breast with jacket potatoe and peas. 

    Theres alot of places that do salads but when you actually look at the ingredients they'd cause you to make several toilet trips.

    Like you all I can find is calories not fat on the nutritional information! 

    Good luck

      Thanks hayley.

      I just imagine that most of it is cooked in oil? 

      But grilled is a better idea. 

      Im getting a bit bored of chicken as its all I seem to eat atm.

      Soooo hard lol.

      Would never think of a pizzeria due to cheese and the amount of bread. Ill take a look at their online menu's. 

      Thank you all for your advice. 

      We had a lovely meal xx

      I would have never thought of that either but I had read on here that someone went to pizza express and it was really low on fat. so I checked online and it's like 8.9g for the pizza with salad in the middle. Then had a lovely sorbet after it too. 

      Glad your meal was nice smile

      I was concerned about having steak as id assume it had been cooked in oil. Ended up at frankie and bennys having their light option spag bol which was tasty and so far so good.  Ill b keeping my fingers crossed it stays this way at work tomorrow lol.
