Eating out.

Let's face it. Sometimes we're just lazy and eating out is a quick option.

What places seem to be your "go to" when you grab something on the go? What do you normally get?

    Wendys ultimate chicken grill. It's tasty (I like the honey mustard), filling, and while higher in sodium, it's 390 calories and on days I just am running around like crazy, I can work it into my calories.

    I practice eyeballing portions so that I can go out anywhere and estimate a reasonable meal, then leave the rest (or take it to go).

    I normally eat out not when I am craving it, but when I either don't have time to make dinner/lunch or when I am so broke and I have no food in the house. My go-to is McDonalds, because I can eat more than enough food for around $3.00 or Subway.

    At work, I hit up either chick fil a (12 pc no fries, w/ water) or a great, but expensive, salad place called Freshii. If I'm at home, or out and about, any good food truck will do, although lately my husband and I discovered Tru Meals across the street from us and it's been a healthier (but not much cheaper) alternative to our normal bad fast food/eating out habits
  • i love it. i usually get their pick 2 --> sometimes soup (black bean is my fave) other times a salad but ALWAYS their tomato and mozzarella panini.

    Subway all the way! I prefer to eat fresh :)
  • Panchero's steak burrito bowl ~ add veggies, rice, black and pinto beans, and corn salsa. No cheese, guacamole, or sour cream. It's a hefty 650 calories, but more than fills me up, has 50g of protein, and I am always under on cals, so it helps!

    Most restaurants I go to will have a grilled chicken sandwich of some sort so I'll get that. Usually a better calorie option than a burger.

    Chicken fajita tacos from Taco Cabana are probably the lowest calorie item I've seen at any fast food place I've been to recently (with the exception of salads). I never add cheese or sour cream to those, just straight up chicken fajita meat in a tortilla.
