While the rest of your party is indulging in the bread basket, order a plain baked sweet or white potato or a side of plain rice (go for whole-grain brown or wild rice if available). Other safe starch options include polenta, corn grits, beans, and lentils. If your restaurant offers quinoa, amaranth, or millet on the menu, take advantage! These grains
are safe options that are also delicious and extremely nutritious.
