Boston Market 35 Ways in 35 Days – Week 2 Update! #BostonMarket

Disclosure 1

As you guys know, we’re on a mission to try all 35 ways – or meal combinations under 550 calories – at Boston Market over the next several weeks. So far? We have tried eleven meals. Eleven delicious, satisfying meals. Eleven quick, convenient, perfect for busy weeknights when you don’t want or have time to cook dinner. The best part is that this is food that you can feel great about feeding your family! We’ve been loving it!

I love that Boston Market rotisserie chickens are sourced locally and then slow roasted. Plus, they put chickens on the rotisserie every hour so that they are ALWAYS fresh. I especially love that Boston Market has made a real commitment to helping people meet their health and nutrition goals. Check it out!

  • Boston Market offers more than 100 combinations of meals 550 calories or less.
  • Boston Market is a member of KIDS LIVEWELL – KIDS LIVEWELL choices emphasize lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy and meet stringent nutritional criteria.
  • In October 2010, as part of an overall initiative to provide healthier options for guests, Boston Market began a rollout of several enhancements, including reducing sodium in Boston Market’s signature rotisserie chicken by 20 percent and in their poultry gravy by 50 percent.
  • In 2012, they removed salt shakers from the tables in all their locations, which marked another important initiative: they committed to reducing sodium levels in all of our signature items by 20 percent.
  • An interactive Nutrition Calculator allows guests to custom-build Boston Market meals online and obtain their nutritional values.
  • An Allergen Menu feature helps guests with dietary restrictions (such as gluten intolerance) identify the menu items they can eat.

Without further ado, here are the meals that we tried this week!

Meal #8: Quarter White Chicken, Mashed Potatoes with Gravy & Fresh Steamed Vegetables: 550 Calories

Meal 8b

Meal #9: Turkey Breast with Steamed Vegetables & Garlic Dill New Potatoes Market Bowl: 380 Calories

Meal 9

Meal #10: Turkey with Sweet Corn and Garlic Dill New Potatoes: 500 Calories

Meal 10

Meal #11: Mediterranean Salad with Rotisserie Chicken: 550 Calories

Meal 12

All of the meals that we had this week were good, but my personal favorite were the two turkey meals. O-M-G. Seriously, the turkey breast at Boston Market is so beyond good. It is moist and flavorful and…I just wanted to keep eating more of it LOL! I may or may not have stolen turkey from Mike’s plate! This was the first time that we tried their fresh steamed veggies and they were perfectly cooked. You know how steamed veggies at restaurants are usually soggy and tasteless? Not so at Boston Market. These were perfect!

Tune in next week as we continue trying the “35 Ways in 35 Days” meal options! In the meantime, follow Boston Market on Facebook and make sure to visit BostonMarket.com for additional meal ideas, nutritional information, and you can even print the “35 Ways in 35 Days” calendar.

  1. That all look so delicious! I’ve never had BM before.

  2. I seriously had no idea that they had so many healthy options at Boston Market. I need to get myself over there and try some of these things for myself.

  3. You know I don’t know that I’ve ever been to Boston Market before, where we used to live they didn’t have any locations, I’ll have to look and see if we have one that’s near us here in our new place. This sounds like the perfect solution when we’re busy with school and jobs and don’t have time to cook a full meal.

  4. Those garlic dill potatoes are calling my name! I always knew that Boston Market had fresh and healthy options but I didn’t realize how many. Their food is always delicious and I would have no problem changing my eating habits if I could go there more often!

  5. I am impressed that Boston Market has so many “lower” calorie options for meals. I’m sure they could be easily twice that.

  6. I knew that Boston Market had things like meatloaf but I didn’t know that they offered healthier food options! This makes me wish we had one closer even more.

  7. When I lived in Chicago, getting Boston Market chicken noodle soup was must when a cold threatened my immune system. Worked every time.

  8. i don’t think i’ve had boston market for at least 8 years. i was pregnant with our first and i wanted mashed potatoes… immediately.

    that’s a good sized meal for 550 calories!

  9. I have never had them the closest one to me is downtown in Atlanta I have heard its good though I may need to try them out and see what they have to offer

  10. What a fun campaign! I was obsessed with Boston Market in college, but have not had one near me in quite some time. Your post has made me want to drive to wherever so that I can eat one of their meals. I did not realize their rotisserie chickens were locally-sources. That is awesome!

  11. Again, I WANT those dill new potatoes! We’re not eating out this month, but next month we will definitely be hitting up Boston Market.

  12. Oh my gosh everything looks insanely delicious! I love Boston Market so much but I really never knew they aimed to be a healthy source of meals on that level. I did notice the salt shakers were gone though and thought that was really cool. I always get the quarter white chicken, mashed potatoes and sweet corn but those photos tempt me to try something new next time!

  13. I’m so envious you get to try all these. They really do have some well-rounded meal options there!

  14. I didn’t know Boston Market had so many options for those watching their calories. It all look so yummy

  15. Those meals look really great! And it’s always a plus when you can get a quick and healthy meal for you familly. Seems like a great company!

  16. Boston Market is my go-to restaurant when we have to eat on the road. It’s one of the few places where I can get a meal that won’t destroy my diet!

  17. This is too funny, my husband and I just had lunch at Boston Market today! I love their food, it’s so good and tastes like it’s homemade!

  18. Okay, this is awesome! Everything looks so delicious. I wish there was still a Boston Market near us!

  19. How can you go wrong with food that feels like homemade! I like the variety with the chicken, salads, etc! Yum!!

  20. I like ordering in food that looks and taste homemade. Meal #9 – the Turkey Breast with Steamed Vegetables & Garlic Dill New Potatoes looked like a home run to me.

  21. Wow, these all look amazing and delicious! I will definitely try these in the near future!

  22. I always thought Boston Market had some great choices when we ate there occasionally while living in Florida. I wish we still had one near us!
