Today, people are constantly busy and on the go. Not everyone has the time to meal prep every week, and sometimes you just need something quick. It has happened to me way too often, I get so hungry I’ll go get quick food somewhere, and then regret it after. However, if you think outside the box, there are ways you can eat out and still be (mostly) healthy.
*My go-to is Chipotle. If you order it right, you can get a pretty healthy meal. I like to get a burrito bowl with brown rice, black beans, chicken, fajita veggies, mild and medium salsa, corn salsa, and guac. No need for sour cream! Guilt-free and delicious. They also offer salad bowls, and now cauliflower rice.
*Chic-fil-a. I love getting the grilled chicken nuggets. They also have fruit bowls and salad.
*McDonalds- you can order just a grilled chicken breast, they have wraps and salads as well.
*Sub Sandwich shops- such as Subway or Jimmy Johns. Try a turkey wrap with avocado instead of mayo. Add some spinach and your favorite cheese. You could also get whole-grain bread if wraps aren’t your thing.
*There is an increasing amount of health-orientated fast food places such as Grabbagreen, where you create your own bowls.
**Another trick- Open faced sandwiches. If you are out and order a sandwich or burger, take the top bun off if you want to lower your carb intake. It really doesn’t make much of a difference! If there is anywhere that serves sweet potato fries as an option, that is always a good idea as well.
