- Fast food is convenient but it isn’t always healthy and ordering low-carb can be tricky.
- Luckily many restaurants offer low-carb items or substitutions to cater to your diet.
- You can still enjoy fast food like Mcdonald’s, Wendy’s, and even Subway by making a few adjustments to your order.
One of the best things about fast food is that it offers convenience but seasoned low-carb dieters know how hard navigating fast food menus can be. After all, they’re often full of carb-heavy options with ingredients like buns, bread, and tortillas. Even some sauces and sides can be loaded with carbs.
The good news is that fast food doesn’t always have to be unhealthy. There are simple ways to order food on the go without derailing your diet. If you’re following a low-carb diet, here are 12 meals you can order from your favorite fast food restaurants!
Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Nuggets
Chick-fil-A is renowned for its top-notch customer service, speedy drive-thru lines, and of course, delicious menu items. Their chicken sandwiches, nuggets, and waffle-cut fries might be some of their most popular options but any low-carb dieter knows this is a big no-no if you’re watching your carb intake. Luckily, Chick-fil-A offers options.
One option is their eight-piece grilled chicken nuggets. According to Eat This, Not That, when you order grilled, the nuggets only contain 2-grams of carbs. Make it a full meal by pairing the nuggets with a side salad but be cautious of the dressings as some are carb-heavy. Chick-fil-A also makes it easy to order low-carb by providing a long list of menu items to choose from.
