I had an applebees pasta (three cheese penne minus the chicken due to my being a vegetarian). I split the pasta between lunch and dinner, figuring it would be within my calorie budget that way. When I got home and went to enter it on sparkpeople I can honestly say I was shocked at just how many calories were in that bowl of pasta (almost 1,500). Yeah technically it would fit into my caloric budget, but only if I didnt eat much of anything else all day long lol. I think in the furture when I dine out (which isnt that often these days) I will stick to ordering off the sides and appetizers menu or research ahead of time what's available within my budget.
