Let's face it, if you want to eat healthy, it is best to avoid fast food drive-thrus. But sometimes, you are short on time and require the convenience and brevity of drive-up windows. How can you grab a quick, on the run lunch and not blow your nutritional program?

The high-fat burgers and fries and sodas loaded with sugar definitely do not fill the bill when it comes to healthy eating. So, what's a person to do? If you want to eat a healthy lunch from a drive-thru, it can be done. Look for low fat choices that include fiber and protein. To follow are some suggestions for healthier lunches available at popular fast food restaurants.


You might not think of Arby's as a healthy place to eat. However, the Arby's Kid's Meal with a Junior Roast Beef Sandwich is 273 calories and 10 grams of fat. Not a bad selection for lunch. However, the sodium is 740 grams, which may not be a healthy choice for some.
