Eat Out, Eat Healthy, Spend Less
It’s not every day that you hear about discounts on healthy food options. Doesn’t it sound backwards that you can eat out and lose weight? According a study conducted by the National Restaurant Association, 71% of adults say they’re trying to eat more healthfully at restaurants.
Did you know several restaurants (including some Plastic Jungle restaurant gift card brands) have modified their menus to bring you more healthy options when eating out?
I had to take a double-take after reading “Eat Out, Drop Weight, Save Money ” as a headline on Shape magazine earlier this month. According to the article called “Chain Reaction”, you can eat out at Applebee’s and Boston Market and lose weight! Stack this dieting phenomenon with Plastic Jungle discount restaurant gift cards and you’ve just found a garden of good food ready to be eaten for less!
At Applebee’s (for a moderate 450 calories) you can enjoy the Under 550 Roasted Garlic Sirloin guilt-free. Cut into a tender 7 oz. sirloin steak, sliced herbed potatoes, and lightly creamed spinach stuffed inside a portobello mushroom cap. That’s a plate that will make just about any mouth water. Use discount Applebee’s gift cards to get this meal for 8% off. Prices vary by location, by many of us should be able to enjoy this Applebee’s healthy lunch or dinner option for under $12 (plus tax and tip).
Spinach is a very popular healthy dining side dish. At Boston Market choose skinless chicken, garlicky lemon spinach, and mashed potatoes to only consume a filling 630 calorie meal. Ordering streamed spinach rather than greens in cream from Boston Market helps this meal lose almost 200 calories! Plus, save 20% off your Boston Market bill with discount Boston Market gift cards from Plastic Jungle.
Eating out doesn’t have to mean indulging in too many calories. Lucky for you, taking a bite out of healthier eating-out meal options can be found for less with discount gift cards from Plastic Jungle.
