It’s not always easy to know what to pick off the menu when eating at chain restaurants. Even the healthiest sounding dish may include hidden sugars, fats and excess salt. It’s helpful when restaurants include calorie counts on the menu but lowest-calorie doesn’t always equate to most-healthy. You want the dish to be nutritionally balanced too. Here are some of the healthiest options to pick from chain restaurant menus.
Applebee's Weight Watchers-endorsed dishes are the best for calorie-appropriate portions. You have several items to choose from, including grilled jalapeno lime shrimp and sirloin with garlic herb shrimp, both of which have less than 550 calories. The steak dishes will have more sodium and saturated fat, so expect more calories when ordering these.
