Nutrition On the Go: Healthiest Options at Wendy's

Sometimes life doesn't slow down for us to make proper nutrition choices. When we are out and about and in a pinch, we may have to stop at a less than desirable restaurant. I wanted to create a quick reference guide of the healthiest fast food options out there, so if you are ever in a pinch, you are able to make smart choices.

Healthiest Entree

It comes as no surprise that the healthiest menu entree is......a salad. However, not all salads are created equal. Believe it or not, some salads are not that healthy for you. So here is the best option at Wendy's:

Harvest Chicken Salad:

Calories: 570

Protein: 42g

Carbohydrates: 47g

Fat: 23g

Healthiest Snack

Sometimes, even stopping to sit down is a challenge. So alongside an entree item, I also wanted to see if the menu at Wendy's offered a snack option. And behold...they did. Here is the healthiest snack on the menu:

Grilled Chicken Wrap:

Calories: 270

Protein: 20g

Carbohydrates: 24g

Fat: 10g

Keto Option

As I was browsing the menu, there was an item that stuck out to me, and I thought that those following a keto diet would want to know what would fit their macros. So here is the best keto option on the menu:

Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad:

Calories: 600

Protein: 42g

Carbohydrates: 18g

Fat: 41g

Hopefully this quick guide helps someone if they are in a pinch for time and need some quick healthy options.
