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!

Kicking and Screaming

Kicking and Screaming

If only there was a way to escape their evil clutches. You are defenseless as they drag you kicking and screaming inside their brightly colored hell. The deafening sounds of children laughing and the smell of fried grease plays like a hypnotic drum on your senses. If only it weren’t forced upon you. If only you had the choice to resist. Read More
