12 Low Carb Fast Food Options That Won't Ruin Your Diet
By Ryan Unger
Grilled Nuggets
When trying to find a lean source of protein, chicken is always a great option. Chik-fil-A's grilled chicken nuggets are an even better option, as they don’t have the added calories from a soak in the deep fry Jacuzzi.
Protein Style Burger
Although In-N-Out is known for being a less-than-healthy burger joint, it is possible to keep the carb intake down when ordering. The lower-carb burger option known as the “protein style burger” is perfect, as it features lettuce as the bun.
Avocado Chicken Salad
Salads are a great way to avoid carbs and calories when ordering fast food, although you can turn a salad into something as unhealthy as a burger if you add too many toppings. The Southwest Avocado Chicken salad from Wendy’s is a great choice with an interesting southwest flavor profile.
Sous Vide Egg Bites
Instead of ordering a carb-filled breakfast sandwich with that morning coffee from Starbucks, the sous vide egg bites are a delicious alternative. The lack of carbs is great, and as an added bonus, the sous vide egg bites also come in three different flavors to enjoy.
Build Your Salad Bowl
Chipotle is a great option when you’re craving some Mexican food, and if you want to avoid extra carbs, go with the Build Your Salad option. Obviously, avoid the rice and beans in order to navigate away from the carbs, but you can still add meat, cheese, sour cream, and more.
