(HealthDay News) -- When you need a quick bite and a fast food drive-through is the nearest culinary offering, you may not have to settle for junk food.
The Womenshealth.gov website offers these suggestions for healthier fast food dining:
- Order a small burger.
- Skip the cheese and bacon on your burger or sandwich.
- Order a grilled chicken sandwich.
- Opt for a grilled chicken salad or garden salad, and top it with low-fat dressing.
- Drink low-fat milk or water, instead of soda.
