I agree with Khyricat that Cracker Barrel would be at the bottom of my list of places to eat now that I'm following Heather's plan - although I always loved their chicken and dumplings pre-Heather. And their Tortilla Soup - OMG. Unfortunately, it's just not worth the pain and suffering. Sigh!

I grew up in the South and I know that good Southern cooks always use lots of fat: butter, bacon, cream, etc. (Why do you think Southern cooking always tastes so good - and Southern states have the highest obesity rates?) I suspect that Cracker Barrel is true to its Southern roots and you probably can't get anything there that doesn't have some kind of fat or dairy in it. (Although I would think even they wouldn't be able to get butter inside a baked potato - but don't eat the skin - my mother always slathered the outside of her potatoes with butter before baking them!)

Try some of the other places people mentioned in your "Eating Out" thread - you should have much better luck. So far I've survived Macaroni Grill, an Indian restaurant, and a Moroccan restaurant with no trouble, so there is hope. (I was careful to take both a Bentyl and an Immodium before eating, just in case.) Now that I know Chili's flour tortillas don't have whole wheat, they're next on my list. And I was very hopeful about Outback after what people said about them.
