Eating Fast Food on the Road

Healthy travel nutrition can be extremely difficult. Just as you have a healthy eating plan at home, you must also have a well devised travel diet plan. Fast foods notoriously have large amounts of total calories, fat calories, and salt. Pressure placed on the fast food industry has led to more healthy alternatives than ever before. Items such as roasted or grilled chicken sandwiches, baked potatoes, skim milk and salad bars can be found at many fast food chains. Below are a few tips for making healthy travel nutrition choices while you're traveling:

  • Select roasted or charbroiled sandwiches
  • Eat a hamburger instead of cheeseburger
  • Choose mustard instead of mayonnaise
  • Add plenty of veggies (lettuce, tomato, pickle, onion)
  • Stay away from the jumbo or biggie size food items
  • Limit or avoid cheese and high fat/calorie dressing to salad
  • Substitute skim milk, water or diet soda as a beverage instead of regular sodas and milk shakes
  • When eating pizza, make it thin crust with cheese or added vegetables such as mushrooms, peppers and onions. When adding meat, choose Canadian bacon over pepperoni, hamburger or sausage.
  • Use low-fat sour cream and/or salsa on baked potatoes
  • Select low-fat frozen yogurt instead of ice cream
