One of the things I have been stressing with my whole eating better kick is what to do when I go out to eat. You see , eating out is a past time of mine and it’s annoying when you feel like you have to cut back or resort to only eating salad when you go out.

I had known for some time that Applebee’s offered a few options for those who were on Weight Watchers but they recently launched their new “550 Calorie entrees”.

  • Roasted Garlic Sirloin – Garlic-marinated 7 oz. sirloin and sautéed onions, served with herbed potatoes and a grilled Portobello mushroom cap filled with creamed spinach.
  • Sizzling Chili Lime Chicken – Spicy chili sauce meets tender grilled chicken and colorful Asian-style vegetables in a skillet full of flavor, served over rice with fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice.
  • Sizzling Asian Shrimp & Broccoli – Tender blackened shrimp and colorful mixed veggies drizzled in a sauce that is the perfect mixture of sweet and spicy, served over rice and topped with fresh cilantro.
They join the wildly popular Signature Sirloin & Garlic Herb Shrimp and Grilled Dijon Chicken & Portobellosgiving Applebee’s guests five great tasting, lower calorie selections.
I along with my soldier recently each had a chance to try one of the entrees. Watch below as we share our thoughts with you . The steak was sooooo marinated ….okay just watch the video :
Disclosure: I was provided a gift card to try these meals. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced.
