I am a very organized individual. I plan ahead and get things done, however since I am on the road for long periods of time, I have to admit there are days where I forgot to pack my lunch, didn’t have time to pack my lunch, or realized my lunch was spoiled because I forgot to put the ice pack in it.
Most of my clients will tell you I am a realistic dietitian. So if any of you are like me and need to eat on the go, I think it’s pretty realistic that you may need to drive through a fast food restaurant at times. Of course subway would be a better option, well depending on what you get, but until they get a drive through I don’t have the time for it. I’ve got places to be and people that depend on me.
A lot of the fast food restaurants have started to display nutritional information right in house, but if you can't find the information you are looking for in the restaurant, the web is also a great resource. Here are some options I pick when I am in crisis mode and need to eat. Remember, it is always better to eat something and fuel your body rather than skip a meal.
McDonalds Honey Mustard Snack Wrap (Grilled)
McDonalds BBQ Snack Wrap (Grilled)
McDonalds Fruit and Yogurt Parfait
McDonalds Medium Smoothie
Arby’s Regular Roast Beef
Wendy’s Small Chili
Do you have a favorite you choose when you are on the road? What is it and what are the calories and fat? If you don’t know, look it up. Were you surprised?
