If you’re catching up from the weekend, here’s what you might have missed on For the Sake of Cake:
- I gave a shout-out to some of my favorite blog posts/recipes from the past week.
- I had a festive fall Saturday!
- I made some easy pumpkin bread & announced my first giveaway!
If you haven’t had a chance to do so yet, be sure to enter my Trader Joe’s giveaway. I’ll be announcing a winner tomorrow night!
Sometimes, you just have to do it.
The “dreaded” (?) fast food for dinner, that is.
Generally, I try my best to avoid fast food. I can’t remember the last time I had McDonalds. I ate at Sonic the week of my wedding & felt sick for the rest of the night. Usually, I’m better off avoiding fast food.
However, sometimes, it’s just plain easy.
Last Wednesday, I wasn’t feeling particularly ambitious after the gym, Chris was working with his band, & I was both tired & hungry – a bad combination. So… I caved, but I think I made a smart choice at least? 😉
I decided to go with Chick-fil-A, because I knew they had some relatively healthy options. I had just hit the gym, so I didn’t want to “un-do” all of the hard work I just put in!
I went with the Chargrilled Chicken Garden Salad. I really wanted the Chick-n Strips salad, but thought better of it! 😉 I also asked them to hold the dressing & used my own low-fat (not fat-free!) ranch dressing back at home.
Not too shabby for a quick drive-thru meal!
I also found a few other articles on making smart choices at fast food restaurants:
- 24 Surprisingly Healthy Fast Foods
- America’s Top 10 Healthiest Fast Food Restaurants (I was shocked & happy to see what was #1!)
- Healthy Fast Food & Takeout
Confess! How often do you eat fast food? Do you try to go with the healthy options, or go all-out with a burger & fries? Truthfully, I try to only eat at a fast food restaurant occasionally; maybe once a month?
