3 Fast Foods That Are (Sorta) Healthy!
Posted By Mark Sisson On May 3, 2007 @ 3:10 pm In Health,Nutrition | 2 Comments
All right, I’ve had my ranting fun. Fortunately, there are lots of positive things going on in the world of convenience food, and I want to highlight a few of them now. Here are three convenience foods you can order when you’re busy and starving that are (in a pinch) healthy for you! Keep in mind, these aren’t winning any big health awards, but they are signs of progress. I wouldn’t make fast food a habit, but there are reasonable choices available if you are willing to look. And please share with us  what healthy to-go items you’ve found.
A tad high in sodium, but on the plus side, a good amount of protein, fiber and only 300 calories. Leave off the sugary dressing! Jack’s Asian salad has more sodium, 100 more calories and several more grams of sugar, so…
2. Jack in the Box:
Only 200 calories, this light veggie-filled pita isn’t as full of whole-grain fiber as I’d like, but it’s a pretty decent choice. Con: this is very high in sodium, so don’t make it a frequent habit. (High sodium is the major problem with even the lighter, greener fast food fare.) Tip: Ask for extra veggies and hot sauce.
3. Taco Bell:
Taco Salad Express 
Yes, I pick on these guys for having a “Fourth Meal ” campaign, but their salads are all right if you leave off the fried stuff. Not winning any health awards, mind you, but a darn sight better than most fast food. Upgrade this salad to grilled chicken and don’t eat the chips.
