Thumbs up to all those Hattiesburg suggestions before!

For healthy-ish AND budget friendly, I like Qdoba.

I always get the Kid's Mexican Gumbo. With steak AND chicken, brown rice, salsa (the habanero is my favorite, but I like spicy) and no cheese or sour cream (I have allergies), with applesauce as the side... it comes in at roughly 450 cals. It is so so filling, and $4-5.

Newks is awesome! Love it, too.

We have a local Italian restaurant here in Meridian called Nick and Al's--fresh marinara sauce made every day, half portions available on their pasta dishes, and they offer whole wheat pasta and whole wheat crust options for their pizzas and calzones. My favorite orderis a slice of cheese (pizza) and a house salad--dressing comes on the side, so you are in control of the portion!

Our historical landmark restaurant, Weidmann's, has wonderful salad options lunch and dinner, and great veggie plate every day at lunch--you can choose 4 our six vegetables--also nice grilled chicken and fish, and they are good to modify to your taste--trust me, they do, because our pastor modifies EVERYTHING he orders!

Another local fave--Cater's Market--great fresh salads in good portions--enough for you, not a family of four--and made to order sandwiches--they close about mid-afternoon, but it's worth it!

I've also found that at Logan's you can order the grilled chicken without the peppercorn sauce, and I get a double order of grilled vegetables--just have to overcome the temptation of the peanuts and the rolls!

We also have McAlisters here, but I'm waiting on Newk's to hurry up and get here! The grilled vegetable sandwich is the best, and the Tippah county caviar (black-eye pea salad, Texas caviar, whatever you want to call it) is a nice healthy side, with a fiber boost, at that!

Press On!

In Hattiesburg (mostly vegan stuff)

The New Yokel Market & Side Door Cafe: mostly vegan salad buffet, soup of the day, and some deli items
Keg & Barrel Brew Pub: several vegetarian offerings which are clearly marked with a symbol on the menu
McDonald's: Two side salads + a light dressing (and don't use the whole packet or the croutons) = $2.13 and is my go-to road food
Baker's Burgers: Has a black bean burger!!
Magic Mushroom: vegan cheese, and will make custom half sides Thin whole wheat crust, tomato sauce, light cheese + any of the veggies

I agree that Sweet Peppers has some good choices. Also, here on the coast (and I know at least as far north as Hattiesburg) we have McAlister's Deli. They have some good veggie or grilled items available (just stay away from the desserts). They are also known for their iced tea.

One problem that I have with local restaurants is that most of the time, when you order their grilled version of something (fish or chicken) it is too bland. And, when their grilled chicken/shrimp is spicy (like with a spicy tomato sauce) it's served over pasta. I need to find a place that has spicy chicken/fish/shrimp/etc. that is in a spicy sauce with some good veggies without being served over pasta or white rice (they should offer whole wheat pastas or brown rice as an alternative).

don't know if you have a sweet peppers deli in your area, but they offer a lite menu that is pretty low cal.

Hey! I try to cook at home as much as possible but sometimes I just can't avoid eating out. This thread is for ideas for choosing healthy foods at restaurants in MS. If you know a place that has healthy choices on their menu, tell us about it!

I have a few (mostly Vegetarian since I don't eat meat).

- I don't eat fast food but when I'm traveling and I MUST, Subway has the veggie delite which is really yummy with mustard, and american cheese (toasted).

- Burger King has veggie burgers! All you have to do is ask :)

- Garfield's in Greenville also has a veggie burger on their menu and a bourbon shrimp that comes with broccoli and rice (under 500 calories)

-Nola in Indianola always has the option of grilling/blackening instead of frying fish/shrimp and a wonderful Spinach Waldorf salad with blackened tuna.
