Seafood may be rich in protein and nutrients, but if history has taught us anything, it's that seafood can easily become a nutritional shipwreck, especially when that seafood comes from a restaurant. And while Red Lobster is just as guilty of cramming calories into some of the more indulgent dishes, it does provide multiple ways to order a low-cal, wholesome meal—no matter which of the chain's 700+ restaurants you're dining at.Here, we tell you how to order a tasty, healthy meal at the seafood chain—and fill you in on some little-known facts about your favorite restaurant, too! This way, you can wow your dining companions with your Red Lobster knowledge next time you find yourself eagerly waiting for your favorite fishy meal to arrive.And for more, don't miss these 15 Classic American Desserts That Deserve a Comeback.1 The lobster in the logo has a nameYou know the cute little lobster in the Red Lobster logo? His name is Clawde! And he even has his own profile on LinkedIn. I don't know about you, but I'm totally sending him a connection request.RELATED: Sign up for our newsletter to get daily recipes and food news in your inbox!2 The best appetizer has just 130 caloriesNext time you find yourself at Red Lobster and you're totally starving, resist the urge to eat an entire basket of those delicious biscuits. The best way to tame your hunger is by ordering the shrimp cocktail, says Kari Ikemoto, RD. "It's low in carbs, calories, sodium, and fat and is rich in protein. Protein-rich foods promote satiety, which means you're less apt to overeat when you receive your entree," she says.RELATED: Your ultimate restaurant and supermarket survival guide is here!3 Red Lobster feeds the homeless and hungryAnyone who's worked in the foodservice business knows that there's a ton of leftover food that winds up in the trash. That's why we were delighted to learn that Red Lobster restaurants donate unused food to local food banks and homeless shelters through a program called RL Shares. Since its launch, the restaurant has donated roughly 20 million meals to the needy. How awesome is that?!4 Red Lobster will treat you on your birthdayAnother great way to save dough on lobster and crab? Sign up for My Red Lobster Rewards.

Each cooking method brings out different flavors, so it's worth trying your fish both ways before deciding on a go-to order.If you want to add some additional flavor to your meal, Red Lobster has a number of low-calorie options, including pico de gallo (10 calories/serving), cocktail sauce (45 calories/serving), and of course, fresh lemon juice. While the melted butter isn't an awful option for grilled and steamed fillets, know that if you polish off the entire serving, you'll have added 300 calories to your meal.6 The Cheddar Bay Biscuits have a fan pageBig fan of the chain's Cheddar Bay Biscuits? You're definitely not alone. The starchy appetizer is so popular, in fact, that it has its own Facebook page—with more than 1 million followers! But before you order a batch, know this: Each one has 160 calories and 2.5 grams of dangerous trans fat, which is more than health experts recommend you should consume in an entire day. If you can't pass up the once-and-awhile treat, only enjoy half a biscuit (easier said than done, we know). Or, better yet, make our Copycat Red Lobster Biscuits.7 The key lime pie is the lightest dessertIf you're going to dig your spoon into a dessert, make it the key lime pie. With 400 calories, 15 grams of fat, and 48 grams of sugar (yup, that's an entire day's worth), it's not the healthiest sweet treat in the world, but it's definitely the best option at Red Lobster. Even better, order this dessert and split it with a friend.8 Nutritionists eat thereIf the grub at Red Lobster is healthy enough for nutritionists, rest assured that if you order the right dish, you can grab a meal at the chain without falling off track with your diet. Jim White RD, ACSM HFS, owner of Jim White Fitness and Nutrition Studios, is a fan of the grilled fish and the chain's combo meals. "There's a part of the Red Lobster menu where you can create your own combination. Going this route is the best way to ensure you get a healthy meal. I'd ask for the Garlic-Grilled Sea Scallops and pair it with a side salad," White says.9 Red Lobster likes to partyRed Lobster loves lobster so much that the chain hosts an event called Lobsterfest every February. Lobsterfest is a celebration of everything lobster and is the one time of year guests can choose from the largest variety of lobster dishes on the menu. During Shrimpfest, meanwhile, we suggest ordering the Garlic-Grilled Shrimp Skewer and a garden salad with champagne vinaigrette.And for more, check out these 108 most popular sodas ranked by how toxic they are.
When it comes to food waste, we can all do a better job of finishing the groceries we buy, especially fresh produce. However, food manufacturers are also big contributors to the problem, which is why almost 200 brands made a pledge to cut their food waste in half in the next decade. (Check out 8 Grocery Items That May Soon Be in Short Supply Again.)The food makers to join the 10x20x30 initiative, which The Washington Post describes as "a global effort to slash the staggering amount of food that is discarded every year," will now be working alongside some of the largest food retailers in the world in a joint effort to make a difference.Ten major retailers, which include Walmart, Kroger, and the parent of Giant foods, all joined the campaign last year. The ten were then expected to rally 20 of their suppliers to sign onto the initiative in the hopes of halving the world's food waste by 2030, a goal that was initially set at the 2015 United Nations General Assembly."Food loss and waste is a massive global challenge. While addressing this challenge is a priority for us, 10x20x30 is built on the fact that no one company can address this challenge alone," Laura Phillips, senior vice president of sustainability at Walmart, said in a statement last year. "With 10x20x30, retailers work to reduce in-store food loss and waste as well as support their upstream suppliers to reduce their own loss and waste."In 2017, Unilever, PepsiCo, and Nestle Global, General Mills, and Conagra were among 15 brands that were part of the "inaugural class" of U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions, which preceded the 10x20x30 campaign. Now, companies that produce Rice Krispies cereal, Spam, and Hellman's mayonnaise have signed on as well.According to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, about 30% of the world's food is unharvested or thrown away at some point in the supply chain. This considerable loss also contributes to climate change, accounting for as much as 8% of the global greenhouse emissions.A report from nonprofit ReFED revealed that 80% of food waste comes from restaurants, grocery stores, and home kitchens.

Pizza orders have been booming during the pandemic, especially for popular national chain restaurants. With so much hype around the classic meal, we wanted to make sure that you're ordering the healthiest pizza options for you and your family—which is why we called on the health experts to weigh in.Below, you'll see three dietitians' and a nutrition professor's, top pick from Domino's as well as their top pick at four other beloved national pizza chains ranked from the best to the absolute very best option. Then, be sure to check out 19 Best Healthy Frozen Pizza Pies (And 11 to Never Buy).5 Domino's Pacific VeggiePer slice from a small pizza: 330 calories, 13 g fat (6 g sat fat, 0 g trans fat), 630 mg sodium, 38 g carbs (2 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 13 g proteinNiti Patel, MS, RD, and founder of Nutrition Is Today's Intelligence recommends getting the Pacific Veggie pizza from Domino's."Vegetables are so important to include in every meal and having them on top of a comforting slice of pizza can satisfy a pizza craving without overindulging," she says. "One pizza slice with vegetables is more filling than a plain cheese slice and will hopefully deter you from overeating." (Related: 3 Surprising Warning Signs You're Eating Too Much)However, if you don't want to order something off of the specialty menu, Kelli McGrane, RD for the free food tracking app Lose It!, has a favorite custom order."My go-to order is a medium-thin crust pizza with tomato sauce, light amount of cheese, premium chicken, roasted red peppers, and pineapple. I'll also order a classic garden salad on the side for extra vegetables and fiber," she says.McGrane opts for a light amount of cheese to cut the amount of saturated fat per slice in half as well as shave off 30 calories."To make the pizza more balanced, I always make sure to have at least one vegetable and try to include a source of protein. I opt for premium chicken as I try to avoid processed red meats, like sausage and pepperoni, when possible," she adds.4 Marco's Garden PizzaPer slice from a small pizza: 230 calories, 9 g fat (4.5 g sat fat, 0 g trans fat), 390 mg sodium, 26 g carbs (1 g fiber, 2 g sugar), 10 g proteinDeb Murray, professor of instruction at Ohio University's College of Health Sciences and Professions, says that the best choice at Marco's is the Garden Pizza, which is stacked with mushrooms, black olives, onions, sliced tomatoes, three of Marco's signature cheeses as well as feta."No surprise, but I would encourage ordering small or medium size pizzas with vegetable-based toppings," she says. "The saturated fat and sodium content is markedly better than the carnivorous counterparts."3 Papa Murphy's Garden VeggiePer slice from a thin family pizza: 180 calories, 8 g fat (4.5 g sat fat, 0 g trans fat), 340 mg sodium, 18 g carbs (<1 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 9 g proteinPatel says to opt for the Garden Veggie crustless option, however, Murray says the thin family size pizza is also a good choice. The crustless pizza is Papa Murphy's keto-friendly option, which gives you all of your favorite toppings from your favorite pizza order without the crust and served in a personal tray. For comparison, one serving of the crustless Garden Veggie only costs you 110 calories and 4 grams of carbs.2 Papa John's Chicken and Veggie PizzaPer slice from a medium pizza: 180 calories, 5 g fat (2 g sat fat, 0 g trans fat), 430 mg sodium, 27 g carbs (1 g fiber, 4 g sugar), 7 g proteinBoth McGrane and Amanda Blechman, RD, CDN, love Papa John's Chicken and Veggie Pizza."Papa John's was a go-to for me while I was in college getting my nutrition degree because it was nearby, quick and affordable on a full-time student's budget," says Blechman. "The Chicken and Veggie Pizza is a solid choice because by including a protein source in addition to the veggies, you're adding even more nutrition and balance on top of the yummy crust, sauce, and cheese."

The comparison took me by surprise. I would have never guessed Pizza Hut. Its veggie slice is low in calories as well as saturated fat…the sodium is much lower compared [with] the others."McGrane also appreciates that while the pizza doesn't offer any meat, it still offers a substantial amount of protein per small slice."In addition to being packed with vegetables, I like that it's free of processed meats yet still provides 5 grams of protein per slice," she says.Now that you know which pizza options are the best, check out The Unhealthiest Pizzas in America—Ranked!
