Usually when we imagine dining at IHOP, we picture pancakes stacked a mile high, rivers of sugary syrup, and plates of crispy bacon. Not the ideal meal for healthy living...but there's good news! We can still enjoy a delicious meal at this favorite eatery without sacrificing our desire to make healthy choices. Here are my recommendations for how to order healthy meals at IHOP!
Simple & Fit Vegetable Omelette with Fresh Fruit (310 cal; 10 g fat; 27 g protein)
Mushrooms, green peppers, onions and oven-roasted tomatoes are folded into a heart-healthy egg substitute in this delicious omelette. The dish even comes with fresh fruit on the side!
Simple & Fit Two-Egg Breakfast (350 cal; 8 g fat; 25 g protein)
This plate comes with scrambled egg substitute, two strips of turkey bacon, whole wheat toast and fresh fruit. You'll feel fueled and ready to take on the day after enjoying this balanced plate!
Harvest Grain 'N Nut Egg White Combo (590 cal; 29 g fat; 29 g protein)
If you're wanting to treat yourself to pancakes, enjoy two Harvest Grain 'N Nut pancakes loaded with blueberries and topped with slices of fresh banana, paired with scrambled egg whites. This isn't the lightest of menu options, but is better than most pancake plates if you're in the mood for a sweet stack. No need to reach for the syrup with these flavorful, fruit-packed pancakes!
Simple & Fit Oatmeal (290 cal; 5 g fat; 8 g protein)
A sweet breakfast classic! This bowl of warm oats will provide you with a good dose of whole grains, healthy fiber, and even a nice amount of protein!
Soup and Salad: Chicken Noodle Soup (170 cal; 6 g fat; 7 g protein) or Minestrone Soup (150 cal; 3 g fat; 5 g protein) with Simple & Fit Mixed Green Salad with Reduced Fat Italian Dressing (40 cal; 2 g fat; 2 g protein)
If you're more in the mood for some lunch or dinner food, keep it light with this soup and salad pairing!
Mix and Match Meal: Yogurt (70 cal; 0 g fat, 2 g protein), Fresh Fruit (60 cal; 0 g fat, 0 g protein), 2 Strips Turkey Bacon (70 cal; 5 g fat; 5 g protein), and 1 Egg, any style (130 cal, 10 g fat, 9 g protein)
Pair together a handful of healthy side items to create your own balanced meal!
