Check out some great new guilt-free picks in the world of fast food, for the HGer on the go...   


Subway Egg White Muffin Melts
PER SERVING (1 sandwich): 140 - 190 calories, 3.5 - 7g fat, 420 - 620mg sodium, 18 - 19g carbs, 5g fiber, 0 - 1g sugars, 12 - 16g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4 - 5*

Subway, you've made us SO happy. Your new Egg White Muffin Melts are JUST what we've been waiting for. Delicious meats (Black Forest ham, double bacon, or steak), egg whites, and cheese on light wheat English muffins?! Yum. And completely customizable with all the usual fixins. The sandwich chain even has a pretty rockin' combo deal happening right now -- a Muffin Melt and a 16-oz. coffee for a cool $2.50. Nice!


KFC Grilled Chicken Breast
PER SERVING (1 breast): 190 calories, 6g fat, 550mg sodium, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 34g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

We tried this stuff to see what all the hype was about... and it's pretty good. If you want to shave off a few extra fatty calories, just ditch the skin. This would be great paired with a guilt-free side, like one of those cobs of corn (140 cals and 1g fat), the Green Beans (20 calories and no fat), or even the Mashed Potatoes & Gravy (120 calories and 4g fat). But for the love of all that is guilt-free... STAY AWAY from the Double Down!!!


Chick-fil-A Yogurt Parfait with Oreo
PER SERVING (1 parfait): 200 calories, 4.5g fat, 90mg sodium, 40g carbs, 1g fiber, 34g sugars, 6g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

Whoa. Yogurt with berries and delicious cookie pieces... from a place that specializes in breaded chicken sandwiches? Chick-fil-A, we underestimated you! This parfait's a keeper. There's also a granola-topped version for the cookie opposed. And there are actually a few other smart options on the menu: the Chargrilled Chicken Sandwich and all three grilled chicken salads, to name a few. Chick, Chick, HOORAY!


Panda Express Panda Bowl, Tangy Shrimp with Mixed Vegetables
PER SERVING (1 bowl): 260 calories, 7.5g fat, 1,350mg sodium, 32g carbs, 7g fiber, 18g sugars, 17g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

We dig the Panda Bowl. Why? Because so often at quickie Chinese joints, you find yourself staring at a Styrofoam container packed with THREE different entrées and a giant mound of rice. This reasonably sized, one-entrée/one-side option is MUCH more sensible. And the fact that you can get mixed veggies instead of rice or noodles is enough to make us want to hug a panda. (OK, we pretty much ALWAYS want to hug a panda.) BTW, if you count sodium, you NEED to avoid this one.


Jack in the Box Southwest Chicken Salad w/ Grilled Chicken, No Cheese
PER SERVING (1 salad w/o cheese, dressing, or corn sticks): 242 calories, 4g fat, 747mg sodium, 26g carbs, 6g fiber, 6g sugars, 27g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

Order this without cheese, and ditch the Southwest dressing and corn sticks that come on the side. Now you've got a cool salad topped with grilled chicken strips, black beans, red onion, grape tomatoes, and roasted corn. How good does THAT sound?! Add a serving of low-fat balsamic dressing (35 calories, 1.5g fat) or a side of fire-roasted salsa (5 calories, no fat), and you've got one heck of a flavor-packed meal. Nicely done, Jack!
