Hi guys,

Am have a family meal tonight as we never get together that often.  My grandparents are taken us to a Chinese buffet (there is 20 people going)!

As the eldest grandchild I didn't want to say no, but now am wondering what is the best choice for me other than the salad bar

Please I need some help x x

    Eeeeek! This is a tricky one.  Ive been able to eat out at most places - most will cater for nutritional specials if you call ahead and chat with them. 

    However,  I've avoided Chinese food at all cost as they use so much oil in 99% of dishes (im yet to find the 1% they don't).

    I would call ahead and ask if they have any dishes which do not use oil.

    Sorry I can't help more xx

    Well I had a successful evening at the Chinese.

    I manage to have quite a bit, apart from the obvious salad, I manages to get done steamed vegetables and the had the hot plate open so I had some fish and chicken from there (Japanese style can't remember the name)

    Thanks for the advice and reply guys. But it's now back to business and no treats for me!!

      So glad it went well for you. 

      I rarely go out to eat but typically since being on these ive had a few occasions to do so lol.

      Places like a Table Table,  Harvester, Frankie and bennys etc.

      At each of these places I have managed to have chargrilled chicken and jacket potato with salad or veg and a sauce. 

      So the options are there xx
