Courtesy Boston MarketCourtesy Boston MarketDo y'all remember when I told you about Boston Market's great holiday meal offerings? Well, the good news is that Boston Market is pushing their healthy initiatives beyond the holidays -- you can get a healthy meal there year-round. Specifically, the (delicious) rotisserie chain just announced its "Meals Under 550 Calories" menu, which contains more than 100 (yes, 100!) mix-and-match options of their favorite entrees and sides. You can also use their new, customized, interactive nutrition calculator to build your own lower-calorie meal. Plus, you won't pay a fortune for these better-for-you meals either. From now through the end of March, guests can enjoy two individual meals with two sides, two desserts (watch those sweets!) and two fountain drinks for only $20 as a part of Boston Market's "Complete 2 for $20" deal. But before you go mug down, check out my RD-approved picks.
