Healthiest Fast Food: What To Eat When You’re On the Go

Taco Bell

It might be surprising to some that many of Taco Bell’s items are actually fairly low in calories, but high on taste. Stick to the taco portion in the restaurant’s namesake, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. For instance, the Shredded Chicken Soft Taco has just 160 calories with five grams of fat and 12 grams of protein. The Crunchy Taco is also similar at 170 calories, but doesn’t have quite the protein punch. Getting these options without cheese is, again, a great way to save a bit on your nutrition.


Subway is the largest fast food chain in the entire world in terms of stores open around the globe, and their growth has been possible due to marketing healthier options. However, Subway can be a lot sneakier than you might think with calories. Eating a footlong anything is going to have a lot of calories and carbs, so stick with the six inch sandwiches. With that said, the carved turkey is their best option at 330 calories (with standard toppings such as tomatoes and lettuce), with 25 grams of protein and just five grams of fat.
