Like obtaining a wizardry license or carving a swan out of fire, eating healthy is a hard task to accomplish during a hectic workweek or snowstorm. Embark upon a health-conscious quest with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of healthy, protein-based fare at Muscle Maker Grill's Manalapan location.
Founded by a bodybuilding and fitness enthusiast, Muscle Maker Grill supplies nutritious, high-protein dishes that serve as healthy alternatives to traditional fast food. Guests can commence with a bowl of steamed edamame ($3.75) or shake hands with the buffalo wing's well-behaved younger brother, the teriyaki chicken nuggets, served with fat-free sour cream and celery ($4.99). Grilled chicken breast and turkey bacon team up in the MMG signature wrap, backed by romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and onions with reduced-fat cheddar cheese and a zero-carbohydrate signature sauce ($8). Pastafarians can peruse the selection of whole-wheat penne (regular penne is also available) in dishes such as the sesame-chicken teriyaki pasta ($8.75).
The chefs at Muscle Maker Grill cater to many dietary designs and happily oblige when asked to substitute ingredients or improvise a skit full of witty banter and advice on nutrition. The healthy hut also serves a variety of protein shakes ($6 for a 32 oz.) and stocks a full line of sports supplements.
