Fast food should never be your go-to for every meal. But let’s face it, life can get busy and, sometimes, while we’re on the road, we have to choose convenience over a home cooked meal. And sometimes it’s just convenient, cheap, and tasty. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t healthier fast food options at those restaurants to keep you on track for your goals.
Over the past decade there has been a shift by fast food chains to provide healthier options and even whole menus geared toward helping you make better choices. That doesn’t always mean that a salad is the healthiest option on the menu either. The trick to ordering is watching your portion sizes, avoid high-fat items, and make sure what you are eating actually has some nutritional value to it including some high-quality protein.
