Healthy Eating – Three Smart Snack Choices At Fast Food Restaurants


Have to eat on the go? If you’re looking for a quick and healthy snack option at one of the local drive-through’s, don’t fret even if you have heard you should run from fast foods. There are smart options if you look hard enough. Many people think they can’t eat healthily in a fast food restaurant, but if you choose wisely, you certainly can.

Let’s look at three great snack options to help tide you over until you get home for your next meal…

1. Chili. If the fast food restaurant offers it, chili can be an excellent choice for filling your hunger void. A small chili will provide a healthy dose of protein, complex carbohydrates from the beans, as well as some fat from any meat used in preparing the recipe.

Chili is a hearty snack, and if you get a small size, it should not set you back more than a couple of hundred calories or so.

2. Grilled Chicken Salad. Another option for getting your stomach fed without setting back your diet plan is a grilled chicken salad. As long as you opt for chicken cooked without its skin and also ensure you are choosing to avoid any high-calorie salad dressings, this one is a great option for eating light.

A grilled chicken breast, even at a fast food restaurant should not contain more than about a hundred calories, so if you add the vegetables and fruit from the salad, you will easily come in under 200 calories with this one.

Just be sure to avoid any nuts in the salad, as well as any dried noodles of any variety.

3. Grilled Chicken Wrap. Finally, another excellent snack-sized option is a grilled chicken wrap. Once again, going with the grilled chicken cooked without the skin will ensure this option is going to be lean and filling, helping you avoid weight gain.

Choose a whole wheat wrap and avoid high-calorie condiments such as mayonnaise. Ask for mustard, which is a far healthier and smarter alternative.

A grilled chicken wrap should have around 250 to 300 calories, so once again, something most people can fit into their diet plan.

There you have a closer look at three smart fast-food choices when you are on the go and hunger strikes. If you plan ahead and know what to order, you can certainly eat right and stick to your diet at the same time.

Although managing your disease can be very challenging, Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. You can make simple changes to your daily routine and lower both your weight and your blood sugar levels. Hang in there, the longer you do it, the easier it gets.
