Little did I know, when I left my office job, that I'd end up in an even more sedentary occupation (I really didn't think that was possible). At least in the office, I walked down the long hallway every couple of hours to get coffee, and occasionally climbed the stairs to go visit a co-worker. Now, I often work from home, so coffee's not that far away. As for co-workers, they're so far away that visiting them is not an option. Couple this with the fact that I have neither time nor inclination to cook (much to my daughter's perpetual disappointment), and I've got a formula for a pretty unhealthy lifestyle. It bothers me that I have no idea how much fat is contained in my restaurant meals. Occasionally, I'll go to a diner that has these "healthy heart" options with details about fat and calories, but that kind of information on a menu is rare.

The Hungry Girl points us to a new website called healthydiningfinder.com that is out to change this state of affairs. This site has a searchable database of restaurants, with nutritional information for items on each restaurant's menu. The site -- now in beta -- is due to launch in January, and so far, there aren't many restaurants in the database (a search of my neighborhood came up with one result -- Arby's). My guess is that, in addition to fast food places, family-style restaurants and chains are the most likely listings, since those are the places that have menus that don't change frequently.
