Depending on my mood--- a southwest grilled chicken salad from McDonald's or a 12 inch Turkey Breast Sandwich LOADED with vegetables without cheese or dressing on a 9 Grain Bread!

Healthy fast food for my body is all things nature made... an organic banana, apple or orange rank up there on my top three list.

I like Dunkin Donuts egg white flat bread sandwiches. They're 250 calories, are low in fat, and have about equal amounts of protein and carbs. Those kinds of numbers are pretty hard to find in fast food. And they're tasty!

I also like Subway--I usually get a turkey 6" with light dressing, no cheese and tons of veggies, which has about 250-300 calories and seems pretty healthy.

And remember that even if your ONLY option is McDonalds, you can still make good (or at least better) choices. A regular size hamburger is 250 calories.

No diet will remove all the fat from your body because the brain is entirely fat. Without a brain, you might look good, but all you could do is run for public office.

I get a salad at Subway with turkey breast, no cheese, no dressing. Add all the veggies except for high-fat olives

This is hard...normally if I'm out and I am without lunch...I will call my thai restaurant and order a vegetable soup for pick up. They use all fresh ingredients, including fresh herbs. I buy a pot for 6.00 and eat it for two days. This is my only 'fast food' option these days..besides it's still fast, I'm in and out, but it's fresher!

Oh, speaking of In N Out, this is probably the only good fast food option, if I ever want a fresh burger. Nothing is frozen...

I wanted to add that I have enjoyed Panera Bread's mediterranean veggie sandwich. It's delicious!!!!

When my hubby asks me to stop by fast food on my way home, I usually go with a Chicken Fresco style Soft Taco from Taco Bell. I think one taco is 130 calories. Either that or I'll stop at Subway, get a 6 inch turkey on wheat with no cheese/sauces and load on the veggies.

Chipotle...I'll get a burrito bowl and eat half of it or get the salad.

I usually don't eat fast food at all because I'm not a fan of processed foods, but lately whenever I need to get something on the run I've been going to Subway and getting their baby spinach and grilled chicken salad. I like that I can choose what goes on it - cucumbers, green peppers, jalapenos, banana peppers, tomatoes, etc. and I order it with the fat free Italian dressing which only has 25 calories per serving. I usually order it with a bag of baked Lays.

Panera thai chicken salad

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

I have an obsession with grilled chicken salads - from McDonalds, Wendy's, Burger King.... they are all pretty good, and quite a few of them are very reasonable on calories and fat.

I have two favs:

Taco Time's Chicken Soft Taco Light (with salsa vs. the nasty FF sour cream).

Subway Fit Sandwiches

Both are really high in sodium, though. So, although the calorie count is okay, I still tend to gain weight when eating them. Even if it's just temporary water weight gain. I eat these only occasionally.

We all bash fast food and its true, most fast food options don't do us any favors. But, I think it would be good for us all to have suggestions on healthy fast food whether it be a particular menu item or the whole menu.
With that said, the safest place for me to go when I am in town is Jamba Juice, you get calorie counts and nutrition facts! You can get all fruit and veggie smoothies or smoothies with frozen yoghurt. Also, they have free vitamin or nutrtion boosts you can add too. You know EVERYTHING that goes into your smoothie and you can also customize too! Can't say enough good things about Jamba Juice!!

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. Thats why it is called the present.
