Eating Healthy at Denny's

From SparkPeople’s Editors

Denny's is known for breakfast, which is served all day long. Just because breakfast is the most important meal of the day doesn't mean it has to be the heaviest. Whether you choose sweet or savory, you can build a healthful meal around what you're craving any time of day.

  • The Veggie and Cheese Omelette (410 calories, 22 g =fat) is the omelet of choice. Ask for Egg Beaters and extra veggies, with light cheese.

  • Skip breakfast platters and order a la carte. For 416 calories and 16 g of fat, you can get an order of bacon, Egg Beaters and a dry English muffin. Subtract 30 calories and add 7 g of fat if you want a biscuit instead of the English muffin.

  • Unless you're watching your sodium intake, ham is the lowest-calorie breakfast meat, at 110 calories and 3 g of fat per slice.

  • Craving potatoes? Choose Hash Browns over Country Fried Potatoes to save 190 calories and 16 g of fat.

  • An order of pancakes contains 410 calories and 5 g of fat. Skip butter and margarine and top with fresh fruit instead of syrup.

  • At lunch and dinner, opt for a cup of chicken noodle soup (180 calories, 8 g fat and 300 mg sodium).

  • Look for Fit Fare menu items, such as the Grilled Chicken Breast Salad with lime or lemon wedges, Grilled Tilapia, Chicken Sandwich with applesauce or the Boca Burger.

  • Good side options are tomato slices, cottage cheese, grilled shrimp, mixed vegetables, a side salad with light dressing and applesauce.

  • Denny's provides nutritional info on its website.
