Even with the best of meal plans, life happens. You find yourself working late or rushing your kid to soccer practice or unexpected company shows up or you’re just too tired to cook, so on the way home you hit the drive-through. But you don’t want to fall too far off of your clean-eating wagon.
Try one of these 10 healthier choices when on-the-go:
Salad topped with grilled chicken
Single flame-broiled burger instead of a double burger, no cheese or sauce
Add a side salad
Baked potato instead of fries
Black beans instead of refried
Grilled chicken strips instead of chicken nuggets or tenders
Chicken wrap or a chicken burrito
Milk and apple slices instead of a milkshake
I hope this list gives you a few ideas on healthier eating at the drive-through. You can also look up the menus of your favorite fast food places online and make your decision before you arrive.
Share in the comments some of your own best choices at fast food restaurants!
