Health.com recently sought out nutritional information from restaurants across the country. A lot of them cooperated and ten restaurants made the top ten list of Healthiest Casual Dining Spots.
I was honestly surprised to not find Applebee’s on the list. I’d love to know what kept them off, because they have some pretty amazing food that seems as healthy as it is delicious.
Below are the top ten:
- Uno Chicago Grill
- Souplantation & Sweet Tomatoes
- Mimi’s Cafe
- P.F. Chang’s China Bistro
- Bob Evans Restaurants
- Ruby Tuesday
- Romano’s Macaroni Grill
- Chevy’s Fresh Mex
- Olive Garden
Denny’s? Bob Evan’s? Wow, I’m impressed – I thought those guys were all about the calories and beefy goodness. Appaently there’s more to them than meets the eye….or should I say less than meets the eye?
Health.com has also compiled a list of the restaurants that aren’t lightening up. You can find these tasty, but not trim restaurants Here.
I guess a lot of it has to do with what you order at a restaurant. It’s good to know which restaurants have the healthiest cooking practices, though.
While we’re on the subject of healthy eating, I have a few more links I want you to check out:
Everything we put into our mouths either makes us more healthy, less healthy, or keeps us where we’re at. If we’re smart (and I believe we are!), we’ll start doing our homework and start loading up on the foods and drinks that’ll give us better health. At the same time, we’ll start cutting out those that harm us in any way.
As for those foods and drinks that are sort of in a fog – you know, the ones we KNOW aren’t necessarily healthy but we don’t know if they’re exactly harmful – if any studies have even suggested that they’re unhealthy, we should “Throw the bum out!” Then, we can replace it with something from our “healthy” list.
