This or That Thursday: Fast Food Edition

THIS OR THAT Thursday is here! This week we are looking at fast food options!

Here are a few healthier options that can often be found at Chick-Fil-A, Burger King, or Subway. These are by no means the only or even possibly the healthiest thing on the menu.

Here are a few examples of what you can eat and estimated macronutrients for each item.

Things I like to look for are leaner meats (chicken breast), less fried foods more grilled, and going easy on cheese and condiments.

Just like on last week's This or That, it is OKAY to treat yourself! I am not saying you should never eat the "Not That" choices. Following a super restrictive diet will often times lead to binging foods that you restricted. Just stay mindful when eating out that there are healthier options if you look for them. You can find nutritional content for almost all fast food restaurants out there! Remember to be mindful and keep yourself accountable.
