Waistline Friendly Fast Food


By Tara A. Mardigan, MS, MPH, RD

For most busy moms, finding the time to eat a well-balanced meal becomes a real challenge. When your must-do list extends to superwoman proportions, you may find yourself throwing your hands up in the air when it comes to finding a decent, healthful meal. And the thought of making that meal is even more daunting.

Grabbing a meal from the nearest fast food place may seem like it buys you some precious time but often it is at the expense of your waistline. Calories are easy to come by no matter what option you choose, especially if you eat mindlessly on the go.

With a few quick updates to your grocery list, you can keep fast food healthy without even leaving home.
