Jollibee meals under 350 calories


These past few months, many of us have picked up doing regular home workout routines in our sportswear, or cooking up healthy recipes in the kitchen. However, whether you’re a fitness junkie or a pro at cooking vegetables such as eggplant and okra, you’re still due a cheat day every once in a while.

Fast food is one of the best foods to get on cheat days, with Jollibee topping everyone’s list of favorites. If you want to treat yourselves to some fast food goodness without botching up your diets too much, here are some Jollibee menu items under 350 calories that you can enjoy.

All of these items can be delivered via the Jollibee app, so you won’t have to leave the house to get your fix.


1. Palabok Fiesta Solo – 305 calories

No Filipino handa is complete without pancit palabok to leave orange stains on the corners of your mouth. This pancit is a popular noodle option, with rice noodles, rich shrimp sauce, crispy chicharon, pork, and egg all in one dish.

However, you can also get palabok on an ordinary day. Jollibee’s Palabok Fiesta is one of the few palaboks you’ll find at local fast food restaurants. The solo serving is 305 calories worth of thin bihon noodles and their signature sauce for only P109 (~USD2.25).


2. Yumburger – 250 calories

Less is more – that much is proven by Jollibee’s Yumburger. Even though it only consists of a 100% beef patty, a special dressing, and buns, its simplicity is something that Filipinos have come to love. 

If you find yourself craving a light burger on your cheat day, the Yumburger is only 250 calories. It also only costs P33 (~USD0.68), so it’s light on both the diet and the wallet.


3. Tuna Pie – 200 calories

You won’t find a lot of pescatarian options on the Jollibee menu, which is why the Jollibee Tuna Pie is so popular. These pies were originally just a meat-free option for Lent, but they’ve become a common fixture on the Jollibee menu now because of how popular they are.

These pastries full of creamy tuna and vegetable filling are only 200 calories each, making them a perfect snack for pescatarians or if you’re looking to lessen your chicken or pork intake. They also come in both original and spicy variants, both for P45 (~USD0.93).


4. Chickenjoy – 220 calories for drumsticks, 320 calories for chicken breast

A Jollibee order isn’t complete without an order of Chickenjoy. Their iconic fried chicken isn’t just a local treat, but it’s also become popular through Jollibee branches all over the world.

Fortunately, you can get your fill of Chickenjoy even if you’re looking after your diet. The breast meat is only 320 calories, while a drumstick is 220 calories. If you order a bucket (from P373, ~USD7.69), make sure to look out for these parts rather than finishing it all in one sitting, of course.


5. 1pc Burger Steak with rice – 305 calories

Being on your cheat day doesn’t mean you only have to eat empty calories, aka foods that don’t have any nutrients you can benefit from. Jollibee’s Burger Steak consists of a 100% beef patty, mushroom gravy, and a cup of rice – a full meal that gives you lots of protein.

What’s better is this full meal is only 305 calories, and only costs P46 (~USD0.95), one of the cheapest meals on the menu.


6. Peach Mango Pie – 120 calories

If you’ve been in the calorie-counting game for a while now, you’ll know that it’s very easy to go overboard on sweets and desserts. With sugar amounting to a lot of calories, we have to be careful with the amount of sweets we eat.

Jollibee’s Peach Mango Pie, however, is something you can eat guiltlessly. At only 120 calories a piece, you can even eat two of these and they’ll still be well under 300 calories. The pies are affordable, too – only P30 (~USD0.62) per piece or P89 (~USD1.83) for a pack of 3.


7. Chocolate sundae – 270 calories

In a tropical country such as the Philippines, a cold treat is always welcome to beat the heat. Good thing Jollibee has a variety of ice creams, from soda floats to ice cream cones to their Chocolate Sundae.

Their sundaes, made with vanilla ice cream and a generous serving of thick chocolate syrup, are only 270 calories each, and only cost P29 (~USD0.60) a cup. So if you need to cool off during a hot day or after a good workout, this dessert is a yummy choice.


8. Pancake Sandwich – 271 calories

Considering that Jollibee’s Pancake Sandwich is literally what it sounds like – food sandwiched between two pancakes – it’s a shock that this even made it on the list. 

You’d think 2 pancakes, a sunny side up egg, bacon strips, and cheese would send this meal over 350 calories, but it’s actually only 271 calories. The sandwich (P51, ~USD1.05) is only available on the breakfast menu, so make sure to get that heavy breakfast in to start your day right.


9. Regular crispy fries – 340 calories

French fries are a classic favorite snack, and you’ll find them at almost every restaurant or fast food chain menu. However, many Filipinos live by Jollibee’s Crispy Fries.

With the different sizes these fries come in, you might be wondering which one is perfect for self consumption. The regular fries (P40, ~USD0.82) are 340 calories, but there are bigger sizes if you wanna treat yourself to more than 350 calories.


10. Jollibee spaghetti – 300 calories

No other fast food restaurant does Pinoy-style spaghetti as well as Jollibee does. The Jolly Spaghetti brings back childhood (or even adulthood) memories of eating the sweet and savory spaghetti during special days, or even just on ordinary ones.

For only P53 (~USD1.09), you can reminisce on these memories and enjoy a nostalgic solo serving of this spaghetti with a meat sauce and shredded cheese worth 300 calories altogether. 


Treat yourself to a Jollibee meal under 350 calories


Eating right is the key to being healthy and having a good immune system, which we all need during these times. However, that doesn’t mean you only have to eat leafy greens and sugarless foods.

Those who’re rewarding themselves with some Jollibee once in a while can look out for these meals under 350 calories that will fit into your cheat day meal plan without going overboard.
