Can fast food be part of a healthy-eating plan? Sure, if you order wisely and choose fast food only occasionally. Remember that fried and breaded foods, such as crispy chicken sandwiches and breaded fish fillets, are high in fat and calories. Select grilled or roasted lean meats, such as turkey or chicken breast, lean ham or lean roast beef.
Fast food tip: Opt for grilled items
