kayzan - Thanks for some info. I'll avoid the brown sauce.
sweater girl - Whew! Its good to know that someone has lost with a "free" meal. I have lost so much this week so far (which is really weird to me), that I would hate to ruin all that effort. I'll check out the beef and broccoli or chicken and brocolli. Thats a good suggestion. Not my favorite dish, but oh well
chilichick - Are you sure they would not kick me out of the restaurant if I asked for the sauce on the side?
Just kidding. I'll see about that or check out the soup. I could always supplement my meal later. Thanks!
wendy - hehe.. I agree steak places are much easier to get the food I need. However, since my friend is vegetarian he won't step in those places at all!
Chickpea - Shrimp is an awesome idea. I think what I am worried about most is the hidden ingrediants in the sauces. I know which Chinese place he will probably pick and they have a huge menu.. so they must have one of the items people have mentioned.
Thanks everyone for the tips! I'll let you know how it goes. Hopefully my willpower will win out!
