8 Healthy Fast Food Meals: Eating Right at McDonalds, Burger King, and Beyond

Meal 4: Whopper Jr. and Apple Slices (370 calories)



Health-conscious Whopper lovers can still enjoy their favorite burger, but in a smaller size with the Whopper Jr. The Whopper Jr. has 340 calories (compared to 700 calories for the regular Whopper), 14 g protein, 28 g carbs, 19 g fat (5 g saturated), and 510 mg sodium. Tack on some Apple Slices for a healthy dessert, adding just 30 calories and a full serving of fruit.


Meal 5: Grilled Chicken Drumsticks, Green Beans, and Mashed Potatoes with Gravy (325 calories)


Check out this hearty, yet surprisingly healthy meal: Two Grilled Chicken Drumsticks have 180 calories, 0 g carbs, 8 g fat (4 g saturated), 580 mg sodium, and 26 g protein. Add a side of Mashed Potatoes (with gravy) for another 120 calories (plus 4 g fat, 19 g carbs, and 530 mg sodium), and round out your meal with a side of green beans (25 calories). Reduce the fat and sodium content of the meal significantly by removing the chicken skin and laying off (or going very light on) the gravy.
