7 Healthy Fast Foods ...


"Healthy fast foods" are not words you commonly hear together.

Although there is no truly healthy fast food, there are some healthier options that will not overload us on sodium, fats, and empty carbs.

It may surprise you to know which counter service and drive thru restaurants make the cut, and what ones do not.

Here is a quick list of healthy fast foods from a few companies that might take you by surprise.

1. Egg McMuffin

I know, who expected McDonald’s to have a healthy fast food option?

I did not, and I am the one making the list!

Although most of the foods at McDonald’s are extremely high in sodium and carbs, the Egg McMuffin is surprisingly low.

The Egg McMuffin has 300 calories, 12 grams of fat, 27 grams empty carbs, and 18 grams of protein.2

No, this is not a kale smoothie, but in terms of fast food breakfasts, 18 grams of protein to 27 grams of carbs is pretty great.

2. Jason’s Deli Organic Vegetarian Vegetable Soup

Yes, a fast food option that is organic!

But what is even better than the organic label is this soup’s nutritional information.

One bowl of this soup has 80 calories, 4 grams of fat, no saturated fats, 13 grams carbs, and 2 grams protein.

A cup of this soup is better than any of those 100 calorie snacks and will fill you up a whole lot faster too!

3. Panera Bread’s Greek Salad

Most of the things from Panera Bread are pretty high on the calories, fats, and sodium charts.

But, there are a handful of foods that are pretty good.

One of my favorites is the Full Greek Salad.

This salad is massive and only has 380 calories, 33 grams fat, 10 carbs not from fiber, and 8 grams protein.

Sadly, 8 grams of those fats are saturated.

This may not be the best daily lunch, but it sure does make for a healthy weekly splurge that is filled with oils from the dressing and tons of feta cheese!
