This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy. While a gift card was received to facilitate this review, all opinions remain 100% honest.
My husband began his healthy lifestyle journey in July of 2012 and he has made amazing progress. A year and a half later, and he has lost 75 pounds and managed to maintain all of the changes. I could not be more proud of his accomplishments and I know he is an inspiration to many others.
While he is no longer trying to lose weight, he does continue to eat much better than years gone by. Going out to eat can certainly be a challenge with so many tempting options. His solution? Avoid restaurants. But with our busy lifestyle, sometimes eating out is our only option. After I heard about Applebee’s Unbelievably Great Tasting & Under 550 Calories menu, I knew we would have to give it a try.
The menu has been carefully crafted by Applebee’s executive chefs to include a full menu of dishes – such as the new Weight Watchers-endorsed Roma Pepper Steak and the new Savory Cedar Salmon. They use savvy cooking techniques to add robust flavors without the extra calories. We recently visited our local Applebee’s in order to give it a try!
We happened to visit on a Tuesday night when Kids Eat FREE! Score! Hubby and I asked specifically for the Under 550 menu as we didn’t want to be tempted by other options. Of the five options, I decided on the Creamy Parmesan Chicken while hubby ordered the Napa Chicken and Portobellos.
Both of our dishes smelled great when they arrived the table. It was hard to believe that the generous portions were really under 550 calories! The Parmesan sauce on my chicken was really, really good and hubby’s sauce was the perfect mix of savory and spicy. Needless to say, we both cleaned our plates. But the best part was that we were genuinely full for under 550 calories.
Ready to test it for yourself? An Applebee’s gift card would be helpful, right? Fortunately, I have one right here to give one of my lucky readers. Enter below:
