Skip The Drive-Thru: 5 Healthy Fast Food Alternatives

Sometimes it’s hard to kick a fast food craving. One minute you find yourself heading to the nearest drive-thru and the next minute you’re struggling with guilt and an expanding waistline.

Wouldn’t it be nice if your food could have all the flavor of fast food without the grease and calories? It is possible. Check out these healthy ways to indulge in your favorite junk foods.

Burgers

A burger doesn’t always have to mean a greasy slab of fatty beef.  There are many healthier ways to make burgers.  If you use ground beef to make your burgers, make sure that the meat is very lean.  You can also use ground turkey as a delicious substitute and you’ll hardly notice the difference.  Or grill some chicken breast, put it in a bun, and top it with all your favorite condiments to avoid red meat altogether. 

If you don’t eat meat at all, you still have options.  While some people think of veggie burgers as cardboard-tasting patties, veggie burgers can be delicious.  Buy them frozen or make your own; you can even get bean burgers that taste just as good as the real thing.
