DALLAS, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gold's Gym, the leading authority on health and fitness, is excited to announce the winners of its first-ever "Golden Plate Awards." Partnering with Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine, the Golden Plate Awards recognizes ten of the healthiest dishes on menus from restaurant chains throughout the nation – arming members with the best choices to stay on track to reach their health and fitness goals and enjoy the pleasure of going out to eat, minus all of the calories.
Culling through hundreds of nominations from Gold's Gym members and consumers throughout the nation, Gold's Gym nutrition experts and Chef Irvine chopped down the field to ten grilled, steamed and low-fat winners – chosen not only as best options for your body, but also for your palate.
Gold's Gym is proud to present its official winners of the 2014 Golden Plate Awards:
- Applebee's Neighborhood Grill and Bar – Grilled Citrus Lime Sirloin
- BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse – Asian Chopped Salad
- California Pizza Kitchen – Quinoa and Arugula Salad
- Chili's Grill and Bar – Margarita Grilled Chicken
- Chipotle Mexican Grill – Chicken Burrito Bowl with Brown Rice, Black Beans, Mild Salsa and Guacamole
- Corner Bakery Cafe – Harvest Salad with Chicken
- LongHorn Steakhouse – LongHorn Salmon
- Olive Garden – Baked Tilapia with Shrimp
- Red Robin Gourmet Burgers & Brews – Grilled Turkey Burger Lettuce Wrap
- Zoes Kitchen – Salmon Kabobs
"The ten Golden Plate Award winners provide a plethora of options for enjoying a delicious meal without the guilt you can experience when you cheat on your diet," said Irvine. "It's all about making healthy choices, and knowing what works for your individual health and fitness goals. There's something for everyone on this list."
According to the National Restaurant Association, the average adult consumes a meal or snack purchased from a restaurant 5.8 times per week. Because Americans are dining out more than any other time in history, Gold's Gym said it recognized the importance of offering this kind of information to members.
"We know how difficult it can be to eat 'clean' when dining out and wanted to provide our members the tools to make smart choices without having to overthink it. The Golden Plate Awards does just that," said Dave Reiseman, Vice President of Communications for Gold's Gym. "Having worked with Chef Robert Irvine before, we knew he'd be the perfect partner for this initiative. After all, there is no one that fuses fitness and healthy, delicious cooking better than Chef Irvine."

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
