Starting from the appetizers, there are a lot of things to remember already because the appetizer list can either be your saving grace or your downfall. Depending on the steakhouse, some will most likely serve wings, potato skins and cheese fries which was once named as the “worst food in America” by Men’s Health magazine. Opt for a cup of non cream-based soup instead. First-class starters like raw oysters and shrimp and crab cocktails can be an excellent choice. Raw oysters are less than 100 calories and less than 1gram of fat.
Did you know that grass-fed cows are healthier than steers that are raised on corn? Corn-raised steers makes a more mild-tasting, fat-swaddled cut of beef while grass-fed beef is lean and loaded with omega-3 fatty acids. The cut of the beef is important. Go for thinner and smaller portion sizes and choose the leanest cut possible.
Any side that features cream is not a good option. The best alternative is plain grilled vegetables that are less than 100 calories and only 1gram of fat. Skip fries and mashed potato but if you were to choose, go for the mashed potato instead since even a huge scoop rarely tops the 250-calorie mark. Entrée salads are often lower in calories but avoid the croutons and bacon. For your choices of sauce, peppercorn, based on wine or brandy, beef stock, and green peppercorns are the best.
