💪 Healthy Fast Food? Wait!? What!?

It’s a chilly/brisk/crisp morning here in St. Louis – really any description you want to call the weather when your body hasn’t acclimated to the cold because it changed overnight. 

But, getting out in it sure wakes you up. 

So yesterday, I brought up a taboo subject in our healthy community… 

Going out to, gulp! fast food joints.  

Yeah, I know you think that every time you walk into McDonald’s you’re already failed. That’s not entirely true. Just know that anytime you answer the YES to the question, “Would you like to super-size that?”, it’s not gonna be a great day. 

However, we all find ourselves stuck with only fast food options, so here is a sample day of how you can keep your fitness momentum moving forward… 

BREAKFAST 

Starbucks 

Sous Vide Egg Bites, Bacon & Gruyere: I’ve ordered these for lunch they’re so delicious. You can even throw in a black coffee if you want. The egg bites are a great source of protein with excellent stats: 

Calories: 310 

Protein: 19g 

Net Carbs: 9g 

Fat: 22g 

LUNCH 

Jimmy John’s (any sandwich place should do this for you) 

The Unwich: Pick any sandwich on the menu. They’ll remove the bread. Add lettuce to hang onto. And enjoy! I actually like the breadless version of the sammies better. I usually get the #11 Country Club: 

Calories: 480 

Protein: 35g 

Net Carbs: 6g 

Fat: 28g 

DINNER 

Chipotle 

Salad Bowl (with Carnitas): Order with fajita veggies, fresh tomato salsa, sour cream, cheese and guacamole. Just like the sandwiches, I think it tastes better without the tortilla – you can taste the ingredients, not the delivery device: 

Calories: 710 

Protein: 34g 

Net Carbs: 12g 

Fat: 51g 

Now, I’m not saying that you shouldn’t try to eat cleaner than the above.  But when you find yourself in a pinch during the holidays or on the road, that should give you some idea what to order.

PS – What we’ve found is the best way to stay on track is to find a way to keep exercising… 

When you exercise, you want to eat better. When you eat better, you want to exercise. Rinse and repeat. 

The Golf Body Blueprint – Anywhere program in the 18STRONG Membership is a great way to turn any 5’X5’ area into your own workout area. 

You’ve got this!
