Healthy Fast Foods

on March 4, 2007

While fast food restaurants are often lacking in the area of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, it’s easy to “up” these at home. Here are just a few lunch choices in the 300 to 400 calorie range:

* Burger King® BK Veggie without mayo
* McDonald’s® kid’s hamburger with sliced apples without dip
* Burger King® TENDERGRILL Chicken Sandwich without sauce
* Smoothie King® 20 oz. Angel Food or Light & Fluffy
* Wendy’s® Caesar Chicken Salad with 1 packet Caesar dressing and croutons
* KFC® Tender Roast® Sandwich or Honey BBQ
* McDonald’s® Fruit & Walnut snack and low-fat milk
* McDonald’s® Asian Salad with grilled chicken and low-fat sesame ginger dressing
* Wendy’s® Chili (large) with Cheddar cheese, no crackers
* Panera® kid’s Deli Ham (or Turkey or Roast Beef) without cheese and fruit cup
