Make Fast Food Dining Healthier

Eating out, especially fast food, definitely makes eating healthy harder to do. But if you have to eat fast food, here are six tips for making the experience as healthy as possible.

  • Seek out fast food establishments with the greatest selection of healthy options (Subway, Panera Bread, Atlanta Bread)
  • Avoid any fried foods
  • Go for sandwiches or wraps made from whole grains and add every possible veggie
  • Stay away from added cheese on anything
  • Choose entree salads with a lean protein added (grilled vs. fried chicken)
  • Avoid high fat or high sugar condiments – full fat salad dressings, mayo, heavy sauces, fat-free dressing
