Alright, so we’ve all been there. It’s super late the kids are super cranky on top of super hangry, look it up. All you want to do is feed them and you so they can go to b.e.d and you can have a glass of wine to celebrate surviving another day of chaos, joke (not really).The kids want fast food and you are just to tired to cook. I have comprised a list with some healthy menu items at your favorite fast food places. I have also included the nutrional info.
I am a sucker for a great chicken sandwich. Unfortunately, most are fried making them high in calories. Enter the Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich.
- Calories 360
- 32 grams of protein
- 6 grams of fat (0 trans)
- 930 mg of sodium
- 43 grams of carbs (3 grams fiber)
If you want to eliminate carbs all together go bunless and order just grilled chicken (they will do it) and a side salad.
Kids love tacos, heck I love tacos, but let’s be realistic we never eat just one, or two tacos, do we? How about trying a Shredded Chicken Burrito.

Cantina Power Burrito (veggie)

While the kids are inhaling their kids meals you don’t have to feel left out order the BK Veggie Burger

Pizza is a classic comfort food. Hot and dripping with cheese, and calories. Picking up the phone and ordering a pie is so easy though…. You still can, just go for a personal veggie pizza. Just about any pizza place you frequent lets you build your own pizza. So pile on the veggies and go light on the cheese (or skip altogether) and you can enjoy pizza night with the family.
