Healthy Fast Food

It’s really neat how a person can actually eat fast food and eat healthy at the same time. Nowadays, so many fast food places offer salads that are really good.  I had planned to cook supper tonight, but our schedule got really crazy and we ended up stopping by  a Jack-in-the-Box and eating around 8:15 PM.  I’ve mentioned this before about the great grilled chicken tenders they have, and that is exactly what I got.  Four tenders come in an order, but I just wanted two.  So I ordered two grilled tenders ($1.10 each) and got a side salad ($1.59) which had dark green lettuce, cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, shredded carrots, and shredded cheese.  So for $3.80, I had a healthy meal, not too heavy for late evening.  Have you gotten a healthy fast food meal somewhere recently?

Christi says:  “I go to Rosa’s and get their bean & cheese tostada. It has a TON of lettuce and grated cheese on it, and is very filling. As far as fast-food goes I think it’s a lot healthier than a burger, or smothered enchiladas, etc.” (Thanks for reminding me, Christi.  Rosa’s does have healthy choices and you can add fresh cilantro, chopped onion, and fresh lime juice, too.)

Donna says:  “When I go to Wendy’s I get their side salad with fat free french dressing and a chicken go wrap with grilled chicken. I feel that healthier than a burger and fries.”

Susan says:  “If only the grocery stores would sell healthy food as cheap as some fast food places do!”
