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 RapChick-fil-A® Cool Wrap Nutrition and Description
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 WrapWake-Up Wrap® | Unwrap Perfection | Dunkin'®
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. UnwichUnwich Sandwich & Nutrition | Jimmy John's
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!
4. Artisan Grilled Chicken SandwichAbout Our Food: Learning the Facts | McDonald’s
This Mcdonalds chicken sandwich is 380 calories and is also super filling! The sandwich is super affordable and less greasy then most items on the menu.
5. Salad Bowl
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!
