By Daisy Melamed April 24, The Cheesecake Factory is a great option for an easy family dinner, a fun night out with friends or a go-to weekend brunch spot. Guacamole and Herb-Crusted Salmon Salad "Cheesecake factory is known for their fun atmosphere, huge portions and delicious desserts, and it can be hard to control your appetite and make the healthiest decision when faced with all the tempting options. The key is to compromise. I might order the guacamole as an appetizer and split it with the table.
Guacamole is a great way to get in some heart-healthy fats, potassium, fiber and vitamin E, found in avocados. An added bonus: The avocado not only tastes great, but is also filled with healthy fats that help keep me full and keep skin and hair healthy! Between the seafood and all the veggies, this dish is filling, nutritious and worth every bite. I generally start with the steamed edamame or the grilled artichoke.
I love edamame because it takes a while to eat and the soybeans are in their whole form, high in fiber and high in protein, it satisfies my hunger without added fat or calories. I opt not to have the sauce on the edamame because it is likely high in sodium.
The artichokes are slightly sweet, loaded in fiber, fun to eat and low in calories. The tuna is paired with heart-healthy avocado, and mixed greens and ginger, which is a great anti-inflammatory. Light yet high in fiber and lean protein, this meal is guaranteed to fill me up rather than fill me out. Cheesecake Factory has a Little House Salad for less than calories, but I get dressing on the side to bring it down to or even a bit less.
For an entree, I like the Skinnylicious Tuscan Chicken. The artichokes in the dish are packed with fiber to keep you full. Sometimes, I have them hold the farro and add extra steamed veggies instead to bring the calories down even further. I ask them to serve the dressing and cheese on the side so I can decide how much to use typically much less than it comes with , and that will skim back on calories and fat pretty easily without sabotaging flavor.
This veggie burger is a step above the norm since it is made with whole grains like farro and antioxidant-rich ingredients like mushrooms, black beans and onion. I skip the mayo to make it an even healthier choice. You can reduce the calories and fat even further by using only half of the vinaigrette dressing. The Chicken and Mushroom Lettuce Wraps are another favorite. The calorie count is balanced with around 27 grams of carbohydrate, 23 grams of protein and 16 grams of fat per plate.
That, too, still leaves room to enjoy a glass of wine with my meal without overdoing it. However, the sodium content is pretty high mg , so be sure to drink lots of water with your meal. Cooked al dente, the protein and fiber rich quinoa 8. This comes in at calories, 8 grams of fat, 38 grams of carbohydrates and 28 grams of protein.
I love this for its healthy omega 3 fats, generous portion and mix of veggies and overall low-cal ingredients for a satisfying but not overwhelming dish. I leave the farro on the plate to reduce calories and keep this meal extra lean. Another good option is the Create Your Own Omelette. I love omelettes for any meal, especially at a restaurant! With this option, you can choose the ingredients and have the opportunity to keep calories under control.
I order an omelette whole eggs for the vitamins and phytonutrients! Tuscan chicken contains tomatoes, artichokes, capers, fresh basil and balsamic vinaigrette over fresh vegetables and farro. It comes in at calories, 24 grams of fat, 35 grams of carbohydrates and 45 grams of protein. I will share one item with my table and take a few bites just to satisfy my sweet tooth—they are known for their cheesecake, after all!. The Cheesecake Factory is great with doggy bags, so I tend to take extras home for my kids or to eat at a later date.
