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.
While their menu sports a lot of grilled items, Wendy’s Grilled Chicken Go Wrap is one of the few that’s not as high in sodium. Calories are a mere 260 with 10 grams of fat (3.5 g sat) and 630mg sodium. Add a garden side salad with Fat Free French Dressing (60 calories, 125mg sodium) and apple slices (40 calories, 0 sodium). Stay away from the competitors’ chicken wraps that sport fried chicken and fatty dressings.
