Ordering fast food? Opt for grilled items

Updated: 05-15-2013

You can eat healthy away from home, even at fast-food restaurants. If you're ordering fast food, remember that fried and breaded foods, such as crispy chicken sandwiches and breaded fish fillets, are high in fat and calories. Instead, select grilled or roasted lean meats. Think turkey or chicken breast, lean ham, and lean roast beef.
