It is the time of year again to pile the family in the car over the bridge to grandma’s house (or through 4 states in my case). Many of you will be driving several long trips to family’s houses for the holidays that will consist of at least one meal on the road. Usually, I will make sure our family eats a nice healthy breakfast before we leave and pack us some healthy sandwiches and snacks for the trip. This has always saved us money and kept us from eating disgusting, greasy fast food.
If you do not have the time to pack some food, I have created a list of some healthy fast food options to fit your Skinny Mom lifestyle.
9g fat, 3.5g saturated fat
This less-than-two-ounce burger is pretty small, so it’s one of the diet-friendliest sandwiches in the biz. Pair it with a Side Salad drizzled with a packet of Newman’s Own Low Fat Balsamic Vinaigrette (60 calories total) and a bottle of water.
Taco Bell Fresco Style Crunchy Taco
7g fat, 2.5g saturated fat
When you ask for your meal Fresco Style, you get fresh salsa (packed with cancer-fighting lycopene) instead of fatty cheese and sauce. Pair your taco with a safe but filling side (like beans or rice), so you won’t be hungry again before you leave the parking lot.
Wendy’s Ultimate Chicken Grill
7g fat, 1.5g saturated fat
It has half the fat of Wendy’s other non-burger sandwiches, thanks to Honey Mustard Sauce instead of mayo and grilling instead of deep-frying.
**Your family should start getting apple slices or other fruits as sides instead of the greasy, calorie-packed french fries!
