Lunch Option 3: Steak Salad with Cheese
Restaurant Meal: Outback Classic Roasted Filet Salad―$11.95
Homemade Alternative: Steak, Sun-Dried Tomato, and Mozzarella Couscous Salad―$3.45
It's tough to find a restaurant-style steak salad with so much good nutrition in so few calories. But this couscous-based salad, which could be served over greens, delivers fresh veggies, fiber, calcium, protein, and healthy carbs―all for about $3.50 and just 332 calories. Compare that to the restaurant version: 562.5 calories, 29.7 grams of fat (10.2 grams saturated), and you'll feel great about this recipe.
