I feel like my life is always on the go! A lot of days, even more often on the weekend, I do not have time to cook a healthy meal.  If you know me, you know I am a little bit of a health freak (besides the 2am after club coney visits). So I came across this article on Health.com about how to eat healthy at fast food Restaurants.  They even break down each place and what you should order. Obviously getting fast food is not a good first choice for a meal, but depending on your lifestyle, it’s inevitable!

McDonald’s: Premium Grilled Chicken Classic  Sandwich, fruit and walnuts, black coffee.

Get the grilled chicken sandwich, with  extra lettuce, tomato, and no mayo (good thing I do not even like mayo). Skipping the mayo saves you about 6 grams of  fat and 50 calories, bringing it down to 300. Want to make it even lighter?  Ditch the top half of the bun to cut back nearly 165 milligrams of sodium, 100  calories, and almost 20 grams   of useless carbs (I have actually done that!). As a side, go for  the fruit and walnuts [210 calories and   only 60 mg of  sodium].

Subway: Six-inch Turkey Breast Sandwich on  nine-grain wheat bread

Load up your turkey sub on wheat bread  with veggies, avocado, and some mustard.   This is the best  food-on-the run solution because it’s got all you need: protein, fresh veggies,  and a carb, for 360 calories. Plus, it’s very satisfying!
