Because nobody’s perfect!
1. McDonald’s chef salad
Only 150 calories (choose the vinegar dressing). Some franchises refer to it as the garden salad.
2. Wendy’s small chili
Only 200 calories of protein, fiber and very little fat.
3. Taco Bell’s chicken soft taco
Just 190 calories – leave out the sour cream for an even lighter meal!
These foods aren’t ideal by any stretch. The meat is not organic, and there are some carbs to be found. No “fast food” is going to be earning high marks for nutrition. So when we look for reasonably healthy fast food options to bring you, we aim for those that are lowest in calories and offer some vegetables and a small portion of lean protein. Those are reasonable parameters for food establishments that are typically anything but reasonable in the nutrition department! When you’re on the road and in need of a small meal to stave off a blood sugar crash, you could do much worse than these light choices. Just make sure to skip the fries, chips and soda.
We recently brought you some other sensible fast food choices for those road trips and hectic days. Better choices, better body!
