Boston Market Celebrates #NationalNutritionMonth With Meal Combos Under 550 Calories

This post is sponsored by Boston Market. Although I received compensation for my participation, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 
Drive-thru options are a blessing. Not only because they make it easier to pick up lunch when we’re running errands, but they give us a breather when we need a quick, healthy dinner our family can enjoy.

For moments when we’re pressed for time, or just don’t feel like cooking at home, we pick up a family meal from Boston Market.

It’s been Jeff’s go-to quick-serve restaurant since before we’ve been dating, and we even celebrated our wedding with a meal from Boston Market back in July.

Our wedding day was beautiful, but it was also a bit hectic. We had been running around all day, doing errands with my family, and I hadn’t made breakfast for Jeff. He didn’t even get his usual cup of coffee.

I couldn’t resist the offer when Jeff suggested we pick up some food from Boston Market.

There’s something about a warm meal, cooked to perfection, and served with a smile from the drive-thru attendant that makes your heart melt.

And it helps that the food from Boston Market tastes like something out of your mother’s kitchen. You get the sense that it was made with love.

With a variety of dishes for less than 550 calories, you really can’t feel guilty picking up a meal for your family on those off days. You know, the ones you prefer not to cook because you don’t want to clean the kitchen after.

Can you believe the garlic dilled potatoes are less than 500 calories? 


This week, Jeff had a cold. He stopped by Boston Market for chicken noodle soup. He has never tried their bowl of rotisserie chicken noodle soup before.
Jeff really liked the chicken noodle soup  because it comes with a good amount ofvegetables, and you can really taste the chicken in the broth.

    I use Boston Market when I'm not in the mood for cooking. They are really great for parties as well and their food is really good.

    I never thought about using them for parties. That might actually come in handy for our son's third birthday. He loves their chicken!

    I have never been inside Boston Market! I assumed it was something like McDonalds (and I haven't been inside McDonalds since 1999). I'm glad to hear they have chicken noodle soup. Might come in handy when the whole family is down with the cold and no one has the energy to cook one from scratch at home.

    We had a Boston Market in our town when I was a child but they closed. I wish they would come back! I don't do fast food often but when you have to they are one of the best choices!

      There aren't that many in most cities, but for those who have a Boston Market in their town, they benefit from the convenience of having them so close.

    We dont have one anywhere near us but I have heard some great things about it! Sometimes you are just in a rush! I cook most meals at home, but sometimes there are just those days that you arent having it and need to go out!

      I agree. Sometimes you just need a well-cooked meal that is served with a smile at a drive-thru.

    I didn't know March is national nutrition month. Great reason to celebrate. A celebration that should be 365 days a year.

    I totally love this idea of removing salt shakers. Healthy society means happy society and strong economy

    We love eating from Boston Market so I'm glad that they are adding more variety to their menu. I will have to taste their healthier meal options for myself.

    I haven't had Boston Market in years! I'd like to try the Santa Fe Salad with Rotisserie Chicken.

    I have such fond memories of Boston Market. When they first opened my Mom used to take me there after dance class. It was a spot for an actual healthy meal.
    On days when I have been in a major rush or was still working I could count on Boston Market once again for a healthy well rounded meal for our family!
    Plus um their cornbread is the bomb diggity!
