Smart Dining

View caption

Just because you’re trying to get fit doesn’t mean you can’t dine out anymore. Some people are counting calories while others are cutting out salt. Still others are watching their cholesterol. Fortunately, many restaurants have added healthy or “light” meals to their menus. And Carrabba’s is one of those.

Although Carrabba’s is known for its Italian pasta dishes, there are other low-calorie choices. Proprietor Sean Edwards suggests the Grilled Norwegian Salmon Topped with Tomato Basil Vinaigrette.

Salmon has a good nutritional profile, particularly because of its high Omega-3 fatty acid content. Omega-3 is essential for health, and research shows that it can reduce the risk of heart disease. Salmon is also high in protein and low in calories (about 197 calories per serving).
