So I know I saw a thread on here a couple weeks ago and someone was asking about the nutrional info on applebee's new under 550 calorie menu. Its not posted on there website but I was recently on hungry girl and found this!
Grilled Dijon Chicken & Portobellos (450 calories) - Grilled chicken is topped with those portobellos as well as roasted red peppers, cheddar cheese, and a Dijon sauce. AND it comes with steamed herb potatoes and a side of veggies. We love this!
Spicy Shrimp Diavolo (500 calories) - For those who like it HOT, this meal of chilied-up shrimp, spicy tomato-basil sauce, veggies, and Parm-sprinkled whole-wheat pasta should give your hunger a fiery kick to the curb.
Asian Crunch Salad (490 calories) - Greens, sugar snap peas, roasted red peppers, and cukes are topped with grilled chicken, sliced almonds, and an Asian vinaigrette dressing. AMAZING!
Asiago Peppercorn Steak (390 calories) - This grilled sirloin with cracked peppercorn and melted cheese is crazy-good. Piles of mixed veggies and potatoes accompany it. WOWOW, it's good.
Grilled Shrimp & Island Rice (290 calories) - You get skewers of seasoned shrimp over tropical rice, plus a lovely assortment of veggies on the side. Mmmmm.... so much delicious shrimp!

Hope I helped someone out.
Sounds awesome. Wish Canada had Applebees.
All I really need to know is the sodium content and that's hard to find. The new offerings sound really good, but if they have too much salt I'll have to pass. Anyone know how to find out?
Am I missing something, or is this just the calorie count?
I'd like to see the nutritional info. Has anyone found this yet?
It may not exist in every city, but Canada does have Applebees. There's two in Edm that I know of. I haven't been in a while but I might call and see if the reduced calorie menu is available there. Based on their website menu, it appears as if they are offering it - http://locator.applebeescanada.com/
Yeah I would like to see it too, but fortunately we can atleast have this for now. Hopefully it will come in time.
Most of the time if your going to be eating out the sodium is going to be off the charts because they have to preserve the food and then they add even more salt for taste. I honestly have no idea the sodium content but maybe some googleing can help out?
just a heads up but the hungrygirl nutritional info for applebees isn't entirely accurate. the only way to get the actual calorie count is to go to individual restaurants and it should be listed in the menu under the 550 part. i discovered that when i went to an applebees where i live and the asiago steak was almost 200 more than i had read online. :)
I hope this might help everyone! It appears to be directly from Applebees and has honest caveats and realities as relevant, with sodium content, calories and all the basic cagtegories of nutrition info in easy to see columns: http://www.applebees.com/downloads/nutritiona l_info.html
I wish they had some vegetarian options on that menu! I hate salad and hate being pretty much restricted to it every time I go out to anywhere that isn't an Asian restaurant (then I can just get steamed broccoli and tofu loaded with garlic).
I think I'm going to do some research and write a vegetarian's guide to dining out on a diet!
Oh my goodness, I might have to go there for dinner! The Grilled Shrimp & Island Rice sounds way too good to pass up!
