If you’ve been road-tripping it this summer, you’ve definitely run into a few fast food chains. It may be difficult to eat smart while you’re making pit stops along a pretty sparse stretch of highway, but here are some healthier options you can choose when faced with a drive-thru.
Wendy’s: Their menu isn’t just square burgers—it also includes a variety of salads, fruit and chicken options. If you’re looking for a healthy combo, the Ultimate Chicken Grill Sandwich or a Grilled Chicken Go-Wrap with Chili or a Side Salad and drink, clock in at only 550 calories!
If you’re calorie-conscious and on a budget, save money for gas and go for the Crispy Chicken Sandwich with a small Garden Salad and a drink for only $5. Craving a Frosty? Calm your sweet tooth with a Chocolate or Vanilla Frosty and pair it with a Chicken Go-Wrap or small order of Chicken Nuggets—you’ll still feel satisfied without having to order the fatty burger-and-fries combo.
Want more options? Love that Wendy’s has a “find a meal for around 550 calories” app on their site, which includes combos like “I have to have fries,” “I want to spend around $5,” “I want a Frosty” and “I want a Combo.”
