Too Busy to Eat Healthy? Not with These Strategies!


Applebee's: If you're in a hurry, Applebee's offers "carside-to-go" ordering where you call ahead and they bring your order straight to your car. They also offer an under 550-calories Weight-Watchers menu that includes choices like steak and shrimp or chicken and portobello mushrooms. Calories range from 300 to 490 (not including sides which can take the calories up to 550). All entrees range from 22 to 56 grams of protein and 3-6 grams of fiber.

Grocery Store Salad Bar: Fill small containers with pre-chopped salad toppings. Grab a bag of greens and a bottle of vinaigrette. When you get home, invite everyone to a fun salad bar at the dinner table!
