Healthy Fast Food Lunches

healthy fast food

Myself along with many others don’t always have time to pack a lunch in the morning, or simply don’t feel like it. Therefore, a healthy fast food lunch is what where I turn. Unlike 10 years ago, there are many healthy options for a quick fix during my 30 minute lunch break. I made a list of my favorite fast food restaurants, and the healthy options that I choose. Enjoy!

 

Chipotle

Chicken Burrito bowl:

Contains 460 calories

Comes with 1 scoop of chicken, 1 scoop of fajita vegetables, 1 scoop of black beans, tomato salsa, lettuce and guacamole

Chicken, Pinto Bean and Veggie Salad:

Contains 365 calories

Comes with romaine lettuce, 1 scoop of chicken, 1 scoop of pinto beans, 2 scoops of fajita vegetables, and tomato salsa

 

Subway

6″ Veggie Delight:

Contains 290 calories, 7.5g total fat, 505mg sodium, 5g fiber, 12g protein

6″ Turkey Breast:

Contains 340 calories, 8g total fat, 1,005mg sodium, 5g fiber, 22g protein

If you are not familiar with Subway, their sandwiches can be customized. I would recommend the 9 grain wheat bread, and if you are going to get cheese I would get swiss. Dressings and sauces are hard to avoid so I would recommend light mayo or something fat-free such as mustard vinegar or sweet onion.
