Heart-healthy restaurants

   If you enjoy dining out but want to stick to your low-fat, low-sodium, or special diet, the American Heart Association's new Seattle Dining Guide will help you choose restaurants that offer healthy choices. The new Dining Guide profiles more than 100 Seattle-area restaurants and identifies those which offer low-fat and low-sodium items, margarine, broiled/baked/steamed items, vegetarian dishes, and small size portions. The guide also lists whether the restaurant will prepare special dietary requests, is smoke-free, accepts reservations and/or personal checks, and offers a senior discount. Call 1-800-562-6718.
