    What I eat kind of depends on what I eat. My favorite restaurant is TGI Friday and I usually get an order of fries and a salad. Then I also get like a smoothie type drink (we were told it has no milk in it). Then again fries and a salad is mainly what I get anywhere I go out to eat. nBre

    I love going out to steak restaurants because they usually have mushrooms and mixed veggies. I love mushrooms <3! Fast food I usually just get an order of small fries to tide me over. It's sad.

    Hmm…well salads are always low (without eggs, bacon, cheese and all that stuff of course). I know salads are always the greatest, but it’s better then nothing. I’m allowed 300mg of phe (which I think is aroung 6g of protein) and when I go out to eat, like I said, I just get a salad and fries. I don’t weigh my food when I’m out to eat, but I try to make a very good guess. nBre 16 CPKU

    Hi, nOur son has CPKU and we go out to eat once in a while. So far the best restaurants for eating out have been Chinese restaurants. There is rice and lots of veggies. We recently went to a Chinese buffet called Century Buffet and that was the best. There was plenty of fruits and veggies. Easton had lots of choices.

    Hey Sarah! I was just curious, Easton can have rice? I was just wondering because I always thought that rice was just as high as other pastas.

    When I go out to eat, I like to order fries, depending on where we go, a baked potato with sour cream, or a salad. I’m allowed 32 e’s to 35 e’s a day, so I can handle that kind of protein, but I am getting tired of fries. I can only have Swiss Chalet fries now when I go out, because no one makes them as good.

    No matter where I go I usually get: either fries,onion rings, potato, or hash browns; either fruit or veggies salad and usually a soda (NOT DIET) or a smoothie

    Hi Brea, nYes white rice is pretty high. Easton is still little enough though that he doesn’t want more than a dozen bites of it. Especially when there are bananas and grapes around.

    Sarah, okay that makes sense. I’m not trying to scare you away from feeding Easton anything, so please don’t take this the wrong way, but I just wanted to forwarn you to be careful what high phe foods you feed him now. When I was younger my dad gave me a little bit of chocolate and regular bread here and there. Now that I’m older those are sort of my weaknesses. When you get older your appetite gets bigger so when I have chocolate or regular bread it’s more then just a few bits like it was when I was little. But I’m not trying to scare you because it’s not like I pig out of chocolate and bread all the time lol , I’m just saying.

    This post is old, but I wanted to chime in as well… Here’s what we have found so far…
    Wendy’s – Mandarin Oranges, French Fries, Baked Potato
    McDonalds – Apple Slices, French Fries
    Golden Corral – Fruit, fruit, and more fruit! Baked Potato, and some vegetables.
    My foster daughter hasn’t taken to salads at all. We’re still trying, but I just don’t think she’s ready for all the different textures at once.
    We’ve also decided that we’re going to attempt to cook her low protein pasta and when we go to an italian restaurant have them add their normal spaghetti sauce (one without any meat product).
