We don’t often think of chain restaurants as being overly healthy. But it is possible to eat out without ordering greasy, unhealthy entrees and appetizers. In fact, at one of the most popular fast-casual restaurants in the country, Applebee’s, it’s easy to eat healthy. That’s because Applebee’s nutrition information is widely available on the Internet. This makes it easy to plan a healthy meal before entering one of the chain’s many restaurants.
Simply run an online search for “Applebee’s nutrition information,” and you’ll turn up several Web sites that provide the calories and fat content of the items on Applebee’s menu. Your best source for this information, though, may be the Web site of Applebee’s itself. The restaurant provides its nutritional information on its Web site for calorie-conscious guests.
Applebee’s, in fact, has long provided low-calorie and heart-healthy menu items. The restaurant even has meals approved by national weight-loss program Weight Watchers on its menu. These meals come ranked by how many Weight Watchers points they include.
Of course, like all chain restaurants, and like restaurants in general, Applebee’s offers plenty of meals that aren’t heart healthy. These include steaks covered in cheese, thick hamburgers and fish fried in fatty, greasy batter. The key to eating a nutritional, low-fat meal at Applebee’s is to do your nutritional research before you leave your home. And once you do arrive at the restaurant, stick to the mean you originally planned to order. Don’t let a last-minute special sway you; there is no guarantee that this special menu item isn’t filled with fat.
Dieting is never easy. And it’s especially challenging when you want to dine out. Fortunately, many restaurants are following the example of Applebee’s and putting their nutritional information online.
Remember, Applebee’s nutrition is not an oxymoron. It is possible to eat healthy while enjoying a tasty entrée at the restaurant. If you don’t think this is true, check the Internet for other interesting article on this subject. The evidence is all there.
