eating healthier

we all want to make better choices when we dine out...but it's so hard.
i pull up to drive thru and i look at the prices and i just go cheap bc i honestly don't have enough good info to make good choices.

enter healthy dining finder...this site is pretty awesome.
they offer nutrition services, basic nutrition information and the criteria in which they get their information.

honestly, it's a fairly good way to learn quickly about what you can grab on the way out the door.
i searched by zip code and dollar amount and found a few items i hadn't thought of before that were actually good choices.

and if you are interested, you can sign up for newsletter, read the blog and catch up on new things now available.

on relish, i found some fast food drive thru choices that will make you smile:

Here are just a few lunch choices in the 300 to 400 calorie range:

Burger King® BK Veggie without mayo
McDonald's® kid's hamburger with sliced apples without dip
