Healthiest Fast Food and Cafeteria Options for Athletes

Here I am going to talk about the healthiest fast food and cafeteria options including ideas for those with vegetarian, vegan, paleo, ketogenic, and Mediterranean preferences.  Let’s dig in!

1. Panera Bread A full sandwich is less than 500 calories and contains 18 grams of protein. Pair this item with a yummy bowl of black bean soup.

Chain Restaurants

2. Wendy’s Opt for the "Power Mediterranean Chicken" for a hearty, anti-inflammatory salad with protein, fiber, and veggies, under 500 calories.

3. Chipotle Chipotle is quick, convenient, and designed to fit the dietary needs of every individual. Their meat products are all naturally raised and their wide selections of veggies are so tasty!

4. Dominos The “Thin-Crust Veggie Pizza” (with less cheese) only contains 135 calories and 2 grams of saturated fat per slice, not to mention the added benefit of your favorite veggies of choice.

5. Chick-Fil-A Opt for the Egg-White Chicken Grill, a healthier choice over a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit. It's packed with chicken breast and egg whites on a multigrain bun.

6. Starbucks Opt for a "Pike Roast" coffee or "Mint Majesty Hot Tea" for a healthier caffeine fix. Add a splash of coconut or almond milk if black is too bitter.
