Fast Food Corner
Chick Fil-A has some really good options for people watching their fast-food caloric intake. I haven't had a chance to sample their chicken wraps yet, but I did recently try their Chargrilled Chicken sandwich the other day ... and yes, I skipped the fries, opting instead for the fruit cup (which is very good, by the way). So, here's the description of the sandwich, according to Chick Fil-A: A boneless breast of chicken, marinated in special seasonings, grilled to perfection and served on a toasted Golden Wheat Bun with dill pickle chips, Green Leaf lettuce, and tomato. Served with 1 package of Honey Roasted BBQ Sauce.
And folks, let me tell ya - at this point, this is the best grilled chicken sandwich from a fast-food restaurant that I've had ... yep - it's that good. So, it runs about 290 calories - not awful. And it has 29 grams of protein - which is excellent for people looking to lose weight. The carbs are a bit high, but not bad for a fast-food restaurant. All in all - a good healthy choice.
