Although the Center for Disease Control recently reported
obesity rates in the country have leveled off, 34 percent of adults
and 17 percent of children are still overweight. As a result,
health-conscious diners are on the prowl looking for more sensible
meals. California residents are also receiving help from state's
government, whether they are actively dieting or not. On Jan. 1, it
became illegal for restaurants in California to serve items cooked
in hydrogenated oils, a common source of trans fats.

On Friday, California will join Philadelphia, Boston and New
York City as places where restaurants can be punished for serving
dishes with more than .5 grams of trans fat per serving. Trans fats
are commonly found in spreads, stick margarine, lard and
hydrogenated oils. This is significant because California is the
first state to prohibit the use of hydrogenated oils in
restaurants. It's already illegal for public schools to serve foods
prepared with ingredients high in trans fats.

There are a handful of places that I count among my favorites.
Expanding that list is not an easy task for me, as the more places
to choose from, the more decisive I become. However, after lunch
this weekend at Saigon Grill, I'm thrilled to add another
restaurant to the list.

The closest I've ever come to Indian cooking was a curry chicken
dish my sister-in-law used to make. It was more cheddar cheese than
curry or chicken, so who was I to complain? I love cheese.
