Of COURSE the best option is just to pack out your carrot sticks and quinoa patties.
But remember –
ANY effort you make to eat well on the road is a small win (as discussed in my post How To Stay Fit When It’s Party Time.) Every time you DON’T order this:
(even though you kind of secretly -or not so secretly- really want it), you are striking a blow for your own good health and also voting with your dollars for healthier options to be made available.
See you at McDonalds! 😉
What do you eat at fast food restaurants? Will anything in this post change your next drive through order? Still salivating over that picture above? Leave a comment and let me know!
I appreciate your article for many things. Thinking of health as a journey is more encouraging than just a lapse of time. Also, celebrating every day the choices we make; in order words showing love and appreciation to ourselves is key.
I am doing the 28 day transformation and having a blast getting your emails. I feel that I have a personal trainer. I eat clean and fresh but probably too many good calories and want to lose a few pounds. I am having a good time, thank you!
McDonalds has stopped selling Salads all together. Taco Bell has added a few good vegetarian choices that can be customized easily on their app. My go-to is Chipotle. Plant based protein and add all of the veggies! Lol
gas stations are getting better at having healthy options too. Often I will find real smoothies there (by real I mean like with 100% fruit and not sugar bombs 🙂 ), a larabar or other healthy bar, fresh whole fruit like apples or bananas, and even herbal tea at a MUCH more reasonable price than Starbucks.
OK that was weird…as I was reading this article I was scrolling and got to the “Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right” part…right as that song was playing on the radio! I am now properly freaked the f**k out LOL! Great article though, very helpful! 🙂
