Once again I find myself on the road and this time it is with a group who wants to go to Logan’s Roadhouse in Kissimee, Florida. The name sends off alarm bells in my head as roadhouses typically do not serve healthy food. I expect huge steaks, burgers, and mounds of french fries.
Logan’s has items on the menu covering a variety of tastes including meatloaf, salads, BBQ chicken, steaks, ribs, shrimp, and even a “Health Nut” section! My eyes are drawn to the “Health Nut” section since I am doing my best to eat low-fat and low-calorie food while on the road for work.
I decide on the Mesquite Wood-Grilled Salmon and opt for broccoli as my side dish. Others in my party order burgers and other tasty sounding dishes which unfortunately are not in my diet.
The food comes out quickly and looks better than I imagined. For some reason I expected to see salmon covered in cheese sauce but am pleasantly surprised. The broccoli is perfectly steamed and the salmon has a good amount of seasoning on it. The herbed oil it is served with adds a diet-safe amount of fat to the dish and boosts the flavor of everything. The salmon is flaky, well seared around the edges, and is quite enjoyable.
Overall I really liked my lunch and once again am happy with eating “well” while on the road.
