Healthy Fast Food Options

Normally when you think of fast food you think of greasy, fatty foods that leave you feeling sluggish and VERY regretful. Luckily for those who seek a lighter, healthier option for a midday snack can still hit up the drive thru!

McDonalds now has a delicious cup of oatmeal mixed with green and red apples, golden raisins and craisins for only 290 calories and 4.5 grams of fat! It contains half a cup of fruit and two servings of whole grain.  I had it for the first time this morning (for free with a coupon I received in the mail) and it was surprisingly delicous and filling!

If you’re looking for another delicious snack, try McDonald’s Fruit and Yogurt Parfait! Layers of yogurt, granola and fresh blueberries and strawberries make up this tasty treat. At only 160 calories and 2 grams of fat, you can eat this and feel no guilt at all!

Taco Bell has a drive-thru diet. Crazy right?? Well, I wouldn’t exactly call it a diet, but TB does offer some healthier options compared to their normal greasy (yummy) burritos. For instance, the Fresco Chicken Soft Taco! This taco skips the sour cream and cheese and loads up on white meat grilled chicken, lettuce and spicy salsa. For one taco, you’ll consume 170 calories and 4 grams of fat. Not horrible for mexican food!
