Healthy Fast Food Choices

We’re not saying you should never hit the fast-food drive-thru. We’re just saying that when you do, you should opt for these healthier options.

By Ian Cohen

Let’s be honest: Unless you’re simply snatching the lettuce and tomato from someone else’s burger, few fast food choices can truly be considered healthy. That’s because most fast-food choices are processed, fried, and/or packed with sodium and preservatives. They also tend to be served in gigantic portion sizes that would have shocked people even just 30 years ago.

But let’s be honest again: You’re still going to hit the drive-thru sometimes. So we went out and found some fast food choices that won’t spell doom for your waistline, blood pressure, or battle with the g*ddamned diabetes. These low-fat, low-calorie options from some of America’s most well-known fast-food chains are good picks for the occasional breakfast, lunch, or dinner.Asian Sauces and Condiments
