5 Of The Healthiest Meals To Order From Fast Food Restaurants

Trying to save in college or in life in general on food can be difficult when there are not many cheap food place options that are easily accessable. On top of that struggle, there is also the desire to eat healthy and avoid fast-food type meals that don't support your body and brain.

This year, I have started to go to places like Taco Bell and Chick-Fil-A for healthy and cheap options that are satisfying and walking distance from my apartment in Champaign!

1. Grilled Chicken Cool Rap

The Chick-Fil-A chicken cool rap is a recent discovery of mine that I get often due to the current health grind I am attempting to keep before the holidays. It is surprisingly fresh and has a lot of lettuce. It is only 350 calories, which for a meal, is decent!

2. Wake-Up Wrap

Dunkin' Donuts has this delicious 190 calorie breakfast wrap that has egg, ham and cheese. It is the perfect size and price to pick up on your way to study at the library. It is around $6.00 and is made hot to order!

3. Unwich

The Jimmy Johns Unwich is an equally tasty alternative to their regular sandwiches, but less carbs with the lettuce wrap! They are fresh and the ingredients on the wrap can be customized to have any meat or veggie you enjoy!

The Chipotle salad bowl is simple and basically mimics a regular bowl except for having no rice and more greens. It is a great alternative to any item on their menu and still tastes amazing! The salad bowl can also be customized like their other classic dishes!

Most fast food restaurants have healthy alternatives and are surprisingly tastier! Eating affordable meals that also have nutritional value really is possible!

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season
