Dig in to these fueling fast feasts from Nicole Quartuccio, RD, director of nutrition for HealthyDiningFinder.com, a Web site that features healthy menu options at about 60,000 restaurants nationwide.

Burger King: BK Veggie Burger
"The patty is made up of a blend of garden vegetables and whole grains, which are great for energy."
Nutrition info (with the fixings): 420 calories, 16 grams fat (2.5 grams saturated)
Lighten it up: Don't add mayo; it tacks 80 more calories onto your sandwich.

Quiznos: Tuscan Turkey Sub
"Pile on the tomatoes and red onions -- both are full of cell-repairing antioxidants."
Nutrition info (with the fixings): 410 calories, 17 grams fat (3.5 grams saturated)
Lighten it up: Hold the cheese and dressing and you'll subtract 120 calories.

Qdoba: Naked Chicken Taco Salad
"The protein and beans keep you feeling full, and that offsets the dreaded late-in-the-day energy crash." Also, you're less likely to book it for the vending machine an hour after you've eaten. That's money, calories, and a Doritos binge -- saved!
Nutrition info: 310 calories, 10 grams fat (3 grams saturated)
Lighten it up: No need; it's already skinny!

Bonus Tip: Freshen Up
Sniffing peppermint improves alertness. Snag a body lotion, lipgloss, or body spray in a minty scent for a cool pick-me-up.
