3 new healthier fast food finds

Sometimes, you’re stuck — in an airport, in the middle of nowhere or at a weird time of day or night — and fast food is the only option. Or sometimes, you just really want to pop by those Golden Arches. We get it. Thankfully, you don’t have to sacrifice your good eating habits when you get there, as a number of fast food joints are rolling out new options that are way better for you than a double with cheese.  Check out some of our new favorites.

Wendy’s Flatbread Grilled Chicken Sandwich in Smoked Honey Mustard

The limited-edition sammie, available until the end of May, features grilled, all-white meat chicken breast on a five-grain toasted flatbread with lettuce, tomatoes and smoked honey mustard sauce. At 370 calories, it’s a better option than the other new flatbread, Asiago Ranch (530 cals). But skip the honey mustard sauce and your sandwich clocks in at 270 calories.

Egg White + Hash Brown

McDonald’s Egg White Delight McMuffin

Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas was at the launch of this new menu item, and if Gabby eats it and still has that body, you know we’re going after it. After trying the new concoction — egg whites, extra lean Canadian bacon and white cheddar on a toasted English muffin — we can say that it doesn’t take like a diet-y breakfast. And at 250 calories and 7 grams of fat (compared to an Egg McMuffin’s 300 cals and 12 grams of fat), it’s a light morning choice.

 

Veggie Burger Hi-Res

Burger King

When Burger King says they want you to have it your way, they mean it — and now, if “your way” includes something other than beef, consider it done! BK now has turkey burgers and veggie burgers (made with a MorningStar Farms Garden Veggie patty). Compared with a Whopper, the turkey burger is 100 fewer calories and has 9 fewer grams of fat, and the veggie burger has a “whopping” 220 fewer cals, and 19 fewer grams of fat!
