Alternatives to fast food

If you learned from yesterday’s post that you should decrease your fast food intake, then you need some good alternatives! So here are some ideas:

1. Soup (preferably one with vegetables) and salad (not too much dressing)
2. Salad with grilled chicken (My favorite is from Moe’s)
3. Sandwich or sub with lean meat and lettuce/tomato (don’t forget the whole grain bread)
4. Chicken or veggie quesadilla
5. Sushi
6. Teriyaki chicken with brown rice and sauteed vegetables
7. Peanut butter sandwich on wheat bread, yogurt, and a banana
8. Leftovers from your healthy supper last night
9. Gyro or chicken pita, served with a side of hummus
10. Grilled chicken sandwich and a side of mixed fruit
11. Regular chili or white chili with a cornbread muffin
12. Veggie burger
13. Chicken or turkey wrap with vegetables and light dressing

Do not use the excuse that your only options are fast food. Even fast food joints have healthy options nowadays. And there are other fast options (like a deli/sandwich shop). Please comment if you want to add to the list!
