There will always be that occasion that isn’t planned for. That outing to the mall that took way too long, your kids game went into overtime, your too tired to cook, or you had to work over time. In times like these, drive-thus seem easy and alluring. So, “If your gonna do it,” pick foods that aren’t going to mess up you week of eating healthy. Here is a list of fit tip approved foods that can keep you on track on the run!
Calories Fat Carbs
Chick Fajita Pita 326 10 35
Chicken Teriyaki Bowl 693 6 133
Steak Teriyaki Bowl 754 11 133
Hamburger Deluxe 362 18 33
Fruit Cup 54 0 13
Southwest Chicken Salad 341 13 27
Beef Taco 182 10 16
Breakfast Jack 284 11 29
Viewing the calories above, you will notice that we included the Teriyaki bowls even though they are really high in calories. If you cut out half the rice and omit most of the sauce, you can avoid the high calorie count and the increased carbs (which comes mostly from the sugary sauce).
If you’re craving red meat. The Hamburger Deluxe was the only choice that was somewhat low fat. The beef taco also fits into the red meat category.
My personal favorite is the Southwest Chicken salad (without dressing). It’s low in fat, cabs, and calories. However avoid the dressing or use it sparingly! The dressing is almost as much as the salad and MORE fat so steer clear!
The Pita is also an all around healthy choice. Almost ALL of the breakfast choices were over 30 grams of fat with the exception of the Breakfast Jack.
Fast food should never be a habit! However, knowing what restaurants have to offer in the way of healthy eating can work to your benefit!
