Fast Food can be your friend

Wendy's is now my favorite fast food restaraunt. All of them are making attempts at being 'healthier', but they seem to have hit the nail on the head. I'm a busy girl. No denying it. Because of that, I end up at fast food restaraunts a LOT. I mean, usually once a day. I know it's really hard to stay healthy when you eat like that.

Wendy's has been doing somewhat good with the kids meals, that you can get oranges and either apple juice or milk with it.

Today, I went for lunch and was amazed that I was able to get a baked potato and their new fruit bowl. It's a large bowl of fresh fruit, with yogurt for dipping. It was great. I don't feel the icky, bloated thing that usually follows eating fast food, and I was able to eat quickly in between conference calls. This will make my LIFE! I hope they keep adding healthier options!

Good job, Wendy's.

Wendy's closed down here about... two years ago, I guess. Burger King bought most, if not all of the 7 Wendy's restaurants that were separate buildings and I have no idea what has become of the big Wendy's on Oktogon...

My kids love Happy Meals. Craig usually gets the fish sticks, fruit and juice deal, the twins prefer nuggets at this point. We usually get the fruit for them and the juice, as well, but matthew has been wanting some milk recently. I guess having real milk at nursery school gave him a taste for it!

OH! I wish! Our only options for kids meals at McDonalds here are hamburger, cheeseburger or chicken nuggets. At least they have improved a little in that you can get the apples with caramel to dip in, and get apple juice boxes or milk there as well.

I would LOVE if they offered fish sticks. My kids love them.

Oh, here you can get a salad or ice tea r shake or juice in your Super Size meal instead of the soda/fries combo. Really nice, actually.

Thanks for the tip. Being a vegetarian, my fast food choices about end outside of Taco Bell. I'll try Wendy's next time!

I can imagine how hard it would be. I tell you I REALLY wish Subway would build a drive-through.

It's all the same to me. I don't trust drive-throughs. I have to watch them make my food because I can't tell you how many times they put meat on my food, then think it's okay to just pick some of it back off thinking I'll never notice.

They start to notice after their insurance carrier has to pay me for three days of medical care and lost wages . . . Ouch.
