Knowledge is a wonderful terrible thing or as my husband said "Knowledge sucks the fun out of food"

In our quest to eat better I looked at the nutritional info for a favorite restaurant.
It was enlightening and horrifying.
The other day I had a grilled bbq chicken salad that had a whopping 1060 calories. For the day
I had it that was actually ok because I had only had a sandwich 14 hours before. But on a normal day it would have been catastrophic.
We have decided that we are going to try and recreate our favorites at home.
That is an unexpected benefit of allrecipes, so much of this stuff I have no clue about but a simple search gives me many versions and for the most part one close enough to what I want it is easy enough to alter.
We are finding that we make better tasting and cheaper food at home that what we get going out.
