It is very common to find that you are in dire need of a quick fix, and the only place that can do that for you is a fast food joint.  This makes avoiding these joints impossible for most people. It is time you stopped fighting this battle and got into a fast food joint. One of the two reasons for giving up on the battle is that it’s pointless to fight a losing battle and the other is that there exists ways to order healthy at fast food joints. Read on to learn some fast food hacks to healthy ordering.

  1. McDonald’s Fruit and Maple Oatmeal

The best way to order this dish is without a cranberry-raisin blend. By cutting the cranberry-raising topping, you will have ordered yourself a meal that is high in protein, vitamin C, Iron, calcium and fiber with half the sugar it would have originally contained. Cutting the cranberry-raisin blend will not lead to the dish losing taste because it would still have the brown sugar and cream.

  1. McDonald’s Egg McMuffin

For a healthy order, get your Egg McMuffin without the Canadian bacon, salted butter, and cheese. Skipping the cheese and salted butter will help you avoid half the fat and avoiding the bacon will help you avoid nitrites. The rest of the product will contain 140mg of calcium, 1.5g of iron and 5 grams of protein.

  1. Wendy’s Baked Potato

Although the cheese sauce makes the potato delicious, to order healthy, you will need to skip it. The sauce contains a lot of sodium, calories and added fat. You should instead order a potato loaded with broccoli. For taste, you can add some pepper and salt. Do not forget to eat the skin.

  1. Wendy’s Grilled Chicken Wrap

This wrap is an alternative to the sandwich. It not only has fewer carbohydrates but it also contains only 270 calories and 20 grams of proteins. When ordering it, avoid the cheese and smoky honey mustard sauce to cut down on the sodium and fat.

  1. Starbucks Omega 3 Bistro Box

This is the perfect dish to go for if you want to keep your brain healthy. The box contains a wild smoked Alaskan salmon cream cheese spread, wheat free crackers, trail mix and cucumbers. Feeding on all the contents of the box will load you up on omega 3, fiber and proteins.

  1. Starbucks Reduced Fat Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich

The sandwich is the best breakfast meal if you were looking for something that tastes good, is filling and healthy for breakfast. The reduced cheese adds flavor without compromising on the cholesterol and fat content of the meal. The sandwich also contains a decent amount of minerals, proteins, and vitamins.

The above hacks will help you have the confidence of getting into a fast food joint with the certainty that you will not be compromising your health. No longer will you avoid your friends when they decide to dash to a fast food joint.
