Healthier Fast Food Options

Healthier Fast Food Options

 

burgerEating out on the go isn’t ideal but you can find healthier options on the road. Below I provide you with some sites that give you the healthiest options at most major fast food joints.

When you are eating out at a restaurant, here are some things that will help you stay on track.

Be aware of…

  • Portion sizes
  • Deep-fried, pan-fried, basted, batter-dipped, breaded, creamy, crispy, scalloped, or au gratin and Alfredo or cream sauce.
  • Salads are not always the healthiest choice so pay attention to ingredients
  • What you drink is often a major gut buster. Soda refills and alcohol calories add up fast.

Suggestions

  • Dressing or sauce on the side.
  • Ask for wheat or whole grain breads or buasparagus-friesns OR a lettuce wrap or salad.
  • Sub mayo for mustard or ask to go very light.
  • Opt for dishes that are grilled, broiled or steamed.
  • Dishes that are cooked with butter can typically be cooked without. Or at least ask them to go very light.
  • Don’t be afraid to make requests. Restaurants are very accommodating.
    • Ask for veggies to be steamed or sauteed in just a little olive oil rather than butter.
    • Ask for steamed or grilled fish.
    • Ask for an extra veggie side or salad rather than the starch.
  • Drink water while dining out. If you are going to drink alcohol, set a limit and drink one glass of water before you go for a second glass. It will also lower your bill!
