Healthy on-the-go options *do* exist, promise.
Fast food doesn’t exactly seem like the epitome of healthy eating. But sometimes it’s basically your only option, whether it’s because you’re stranded in an airport or have run out of snacks on a road trip. The good news is that many fast food restaurants are adding healthier options to their menus, because it’s all about giving customers what they want. Although going to town on a burger and fries is totally within your rights (and sometimes exactly what you need), in the moments you want a healthier fast food meal, consider these recommendations from 12 registered dietitians.

This rectangular pie is most notable for its streaks of sauce across the top and a glorious edge of almost-caramelized cheese. The crust is thick yet airy, and toppings are often tucked under the cheese. As the style has migrated (see Brown Dog Pizza in Telluride, CO), toppings are moving above the cheese and getting fancier (fig preserves?!).
I first saw these amazing cinnamon buns (would you look at them?!) on a fox in the kitchen and I knew I had to make them. I’m not a huge bread fan nor do I really enjoy baking breads as much as I do cakes but these won me over for some reason…
Breads are often baked in your home oven, my mum had a phase where she would bake bread endlessly. Seeded bread, saffron bread. All the breads, but there was one in particular that caught my eye.
The Victoria's Secret supermodels credit this green smoothie as their secret to slimming down and detoxing before a shoot, so naturally we're curious to see how it tastes. The ingredients are romaine, spinach, banana, celery, pear, lemon juice, honey and water, giving the smoothie strong flavors that are sweet and palatable. If it tastes great and helps us slim down, we're all for it.
