How-To
on March 4, 2007

While fast food restaurants are often lacking in the area of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, it’s easy to “up” these at home. 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
* Burger King® TENDERGRILL Chicken Sandwich without sauce
* Smoothie King® 20 oz. Angel Food or Light & Fluffy
* Wendy’s® Caesar Chicken Salad with 1 packet Caesar dressing and croutons
* KFC® Tender Roast® Sandwich or Honey BBQ
* McDonald’s® Fruit & Walnut snack and low-fat milk
* McDonald’s® Asian Salad with grilled chicken and low-fat sesame ginger dressing
* Wendy’s® Chili (large) with Cheddar cheese, no crackers
* Panera® kid’s Deli Ham (or Turkey or Roast Beef) without cheese and fruit cup

Need a few more calories? These options add up to 500 to 600 calories each:

* Chick-Fil-A® Chargrilled Chicken Sandwich, Carrot & Raisin Salad and fruit cup
* 12″ Subway® Turkey Breast, Ham, Roast Beef, Club® with low-fat mayonnaise
* KFC® Tender Roast Chicken sandwich without sauce, corn on the cob (small) and BBQ baked beans
* Wendy’s® Plain Baked Potato topped with small chili
* Boston Market® quarter roasted white chicken (no skin or wing), green beans, steamed vegetables and new potatoes
* Fazoli’s® small Spaghetti with tomato or meat sauce and breadstick
