Has this ever happened to you?


You’re on a road trip, or with family or friends, or maybe it’s a work trip — and you end up in the drive-thru lane…


And you’re left to try to figure out the least-terrible option in just a few seconds.


Never fear! I have a few tips for you today.


The awesome news is that nowadays, it’s easy to order a fast-food meal that:


1)    Tastes great

2)    Keeps you on track

3)    Doesn’t leave you feeling regretful


But first, I’ve got a major motivator to help you make healthy choices… instead of falling back on old habits.


👉 Think about how you’ll feel an hour or two AFTER eating.


Do you want to feel bloated, blah, and wondering what you did to yourself?




Do you want to feel energized and proud of yourself for following through on your healthy eating goals?


It’s a no-brainer! :)


Quick & Easy Drive-Thru Survival Guide

     Focus on lean protein options like chicken or fish that’s baked or grilled (not fried)

     Bean dishes like chili are another healthy option

     At Mexican-themed restaurants, order “fresco style” dishes with pico de gallo and guacamole, instead of sour cream and heavy cheeses

     Say “yes” to salads but make sure they aren’t loaded with cheese, sour cream, and fried chicken — and choose a vinaigrette dressing

     Instead of fries, order fruit as your side

     Choose wraps instead of burgers with buns

     If you do choose a hamburger with a bun, remove the top bun to cut back on highly refined carbs

     Avoid heavy sauces and mayo

     Remember that some items sound healthier than they are — like yogurt parfaits and turkey burgers

     When it comes to drinks, go for water, unsweetened iced tea, or black coffee to avoid artificial sweeteners and added sugars


And, if at all possible, have a game plan BEFORE you place your order!


Guess what? Over time, it gets SO MUCH EASIER to make a better choice!


If you’re looking for support, tips, and accountability for upgrading YOUR fitness and health, Fit + Fresh can help!


Sometimes, just making the commitment to a program like this can help you stay on track.


That way, when you’re in a situation where you may not normally make the healthy choice, remembering that you’ve invested in yourself can remind you to think, “Wait! I can do better!”


When you’re treating your body right, drive-thru food doesn’t sound as good!
