My healthy picks in junk food restaurants

So … you are already set up in your healthy lifestyle journey or just trying to do some damage control when you are out eating in a fast food chain, and lets say, quinoa, lean proteins and vegetables are not on the menu… if you are a health fanatic, you will certainly feel guilty… so here are some of my go to picks  when i’m eating in fast food restaurants

McDonald’s

A classic : Since I am vegetarian, i don’t have much choice anyways… so my go to’s are usually the potatoes and 2 mustard packets

If I’m feeling extra hungry, i would get the egg muffin, no cheese from the brunch menu (Yep! they will costumize it for you)

If you are not vegetarian, then try the honey mustard wrap, the 2 euros one not the big one( let’s just say the calories on the big wrap is worst than havinga big mac).

These 3 meals are approximatly 350 Kcal each. pretty neat for a fast food slip…

PS: Please no Matter what ! Stay away from the salad, it is highly highly calorific …we are talking 700 to 800 kcal per salad…it’s just not as healthy as you think!

Quick

Sorry to burst your bubble, but quick is the worst , the sandwiches are too big and the salads are as calorific as McDonald’s . I would probably go for a diet coke and potatoes  ( around 400Kcal )

Burger king’s

My least favorite, not worth the calories. Just go for something that is small in portion

Subway

My favorite, i never take the sandwich anymore, i like their the vegetarian steak salad with lettuce, cucumber, bell pepper, olives, pickles and jalapeño with a hint of sweet onion sauce…yumm…. i get a piece of bread on the side though, when i’m vanished 😀

Chipotle

My other favorite, I love their vegetarian salad, but be careful even though it’s a salad it doesn’t mean its not heavy if you add the cheese and guacamole .

My trick is to ask for everything on the side …I don’t like cheese so it makes my life so much easier to avoid extra calories..

I usually have the salad with lettuce, brown rice, black beans, vegetables and spicy sauce , no cheese with guacamole and a tortilla on the side …

honestly is so filling …
