Eat Healthy on the Road!

It happens to all of us, we set off for the day all prepared to eat well and then disaster strikes. We get stuck on the phone, in client meetings, or we leave our very perishable meal in a hot car all morning. There's no avoiding it, at some point we all have to grab a bite at a fast food restaurant. The tempting thing to do, in this situation, is to throw in the towel and order the biggest, greasiest thing on the menu. I mean, you're already there. Why not cheat? 

You don't cheat because it gets a little bit easier to cheat again tomorrow. That makes it even easier to cheat on the day after that. It contributes to a vicious cycle that will lead you down a road that will have you gain 15 pounds and have to buy new clothes because the ones you're wearing don't fit anymore!


We don't want that. So what do you do if you're stuck at a fast food place? Hopefully this Fast Food Guide will help! Remember, these are NOT first choice restaurants. This is for use only in case of food emergencies!
