Muscle Maker Grill, Wall

Today I am going to take you to one of my favorite spots to have a healthy meal, Muscle Maker Grill on Route 35 in Wall. Located in the shopping center across from the Kmart plaza, it is a very healthy and delicious alternative to fast food.

When you walk into the restaurant, you immediately notice how clean the place is. I have never seen an empty tablethat wasn’t cleared off or a sticky surface, and there’s nothing littering the floor. When you approach the counter to place your order you can see the kitchen where they prepare the orders right in front of you, which is another thing I love when I chose a place to eat. Now, the food – they truly have something for every diet, whether you are on a low carb, gluten free, or vegetarian diet – or even if you need to eat some extra carbs to get ready for your workout, Muscle Maker has you covered.

Let’s start at the top of the menu with the “warm ups.” They have three kinds of chicken nuggets: Texas, Honey BBQ and Teriyaki. These are not your normal fast food fried chicken – these nuggets are chunks of fresh chicken, grilled and seasoned with a great-tasting, low-sugar sauce. Each side comes with fat-free sour cream (I couldn’t even tell the difference) and celery sticks. If you are looking for a vegetable starter they serve edamame, which are protein-packed soy beans that are steamed and lightly salted.

If you are looking for a salad, they have many to choose from including a traditional Caesar salad, Turkey Taco, Cajun chicken, and my personal favorite, the Lean & Mean Cheeseburger Salad. This one is so good that you would never believe it is actually healthy for you – this salad is an all-beef burger cooked to your liking, topped with reduced fat cheddar cheese and fat free hickory smoked BBQ sauce, served atop a pile of fresh, crisp romaine lettuce, and garnished with tomatoes and scallions. This salad is awesome if you’re watching your carbs, or if you just want a great meal.

They have wraps and sandwiches covered also, offering a wide variety. Their selection of wraps includes grilled chicken, turkey meatball, turkey burger and a Tex Mex option, to name a few. All are made fresh to order and come with your choice of side. The two sandwiches on the menu are a chicken breast or a hamburger sandwich topped with turkey bacon, low fat cheese, and a zero carb sauce.

One of the meals that I love is their Penne & Reduced Fat Vodka Sauce with chicken – you can get it with either whole wheat or regular pasta. If you are craving pasta but don’t want that bloated feeling, this is the way to go – the sauce is light and flavorful. This dish is fantastic!

If you are looking for something quick, try one their protein shakes. They have many different flavors to choose from, but my personal favorite is the chocolate peanut butter.

I could go on forever with all the great items on their menu, so I am going to cut it here by stating the obvious: “If you have never been to Muscle Maker, what are you waiting for?”
