It’s a minefield of high fat, high calorie, super salty choices at some lunch joints while others offer at least a few healthy options. Here’s a quick look at the best restaurant lunches. By: Maureen Callahan, MS, RD and Karen Ansel, RD.

Domino's goes gourmet with its new Artisan Pizza menu – and your waistline reaps the rewards. Choose two slices of their Tuscan Salami & Roasted Veggie Pizza and walk away for a skinny 300 calories with 12 grams of total fat and 4 grams of saturated fat. While a couple of slices can usually be a salt mine, these sport a not-too-terrible 560 mg per two-slice serving. Compare this to individual-sized meat-topped pizzas that ring up double the calories, over 40 grams of fat, a day’s worth of saturated fat, and over 2000mg of sodium and bite in guilt free.
