Friday is hubbys birthday, he wants to go out to eat and was thinking of going for Chinese food- I'm still trying to talk him into going for a steak! But it's his birthday, so.... Anyone have anything they can recommend that I can eat and not go off plan?
I'm sure you're correct that these are best for low carb, and my favorite soup in the entire universe is hot-n-sour soup. FitDay says that one cup of hot-n-sour soup has 5 grams of carbs, while a cup of egg drop soup has 1 gram of carbs.
However, those are theoretical as everyone makes their soups differently. A packet of Kikoman hot-n-sour soup mix at Wal Mart has 15 grams per cup. Yikes! So WHO KNOWS how many carbs are in the soup at the restaurant? I mean, that's a HUGE difference for me because 5 grams may not effect me at all in the course of a day, but 15 grams all in one sitting might very well push me right out of ketosis.
