Denny’s: Your Neighborhood Diner Serving Healthy Dining Choices

For over the 60 years Denny’s has been keeping us well-fed with convenient locations nationwide. America’s diner, Denny’s has come to be known for hearty home-style meals served in a relaxed atmosphere 24/7.  Whether you’re in the mood for a classic diner breakfast with a hot cup of coffee while you chat with your neighbors around the counter or a better-for-you family dinner without the cooking and cleaning, Denny’s has a table waiting for you.

Not only does Denny’s keep your old favorites like that Grand Slam on hand, but they also dish up the fresher, healthier options many of us are now expecting like these dietitian-recommended Healthy Dining and Kids LiveWell menu choices:

Fit Fare® Veggie Skillet

Your recommended servings of veggies have never tasted so good!  This sizzling skillet comes with seasoned red-skinned potatoes, fire-roasted peppers and onions, mushrooms and broccoli topped with two egg whites scrambled with spinach and grape tomatoes.  Top it with the side of salsa and maybe a splash of hot sauce and enjoy.

Banana Pecan Pancake Breakfast

This one is a staff favorite around the Healthy Dining office.  This hearty breakfast includes two wheat pancakes cooked with glazed pecans and topped with fresh banana slices plus two scrambled egg whites, two strips of turkey bacon and a side of warm syrup.  Smaller appetites can easily split this dietitian pick.

Cranberry Apple Chicken Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Lunch or dinner, this salad makes a fresh and flavorful choice with grilled seasoned chicken breast, glazed pecans, apple slices and dried cranberries topping a bed of spring mix.  Savor the balsamic vinaigrette dressing served on the side (included in analysis), but skip the bread served on the side to keep this a dietitian-recommended option.

Build Your Own Veggie Burger

Another hearty choice made with your health in mind.  This Amy’s Veggie Burger made from fresh organic grains and vegetables with protein-rich soy is topped with melted Pepper Jack cheese, fresh spinach, tomato and grilled mushrooms on a whole wheat bun. Request a side of balsamic vinaigrette dressing and Fit Fare® fresh veggies as your side choice.

Fit Fare® Tilapia Ranchero 

Many health experts recommend 2-3 servings of fish per week.  Why not order this dietitian pick to help meet that recommendation?  A seasoned white fish fillet is grilled and topped with freshly made pico de gallo and fresh avocado then served with cheddar mashed potatoes and broccoli.
