Jack in the Box Chicken Fajita Pita made with whole grain

Who says fast food has to derail your diet? This petite Mexican-style pita sandwich from Jack in the Box’s Healthy Dining menu lets you do take-out the healthy way. You’ll bite into grilled chicken, shredded cheddar, grilled onions, lettuce, and tomato tucked into a warm whole-grain pita. One sandwich delivers more potassium than a small banana plus 3 grams of fiber. By ordering yours without the shredded cheddar, you can trim 145 milligrams of sodium, 67 calories, and 7 fat grams.

Stats: 326 calories, 10 grams fat, 987 milligrams sodium
