30 Surprisingly Healthy Fast Foods

Drive-Through Dos

Eat right on the run with these smart strategies.

Don't fall for health halos. Some veggie dishes pack nearly 1,000 calories, while a burger may have as few as 250. Read the nutrition facts before you order.

Go high tech. Speaking of nutrition facts, they're in the palm of your hand with the Fast Food Calorie Counter app ($1, for iPhone or Android), which lists more than 9,000 menu items.

Look beyond the main menu. Pint-size portions on the kids' menu can save you calories, and the Dunkin' Donuts all-day breakfast menu has many nutritious picks. Panera has a secret menu with healthy egg-white bowls and a steak lettuce wrap; say you're ordering from the "hidden menu" to get the scoop.

Go skinny-dipping. Not all condiments are created equal. A ketchup packet has only 10 calories, but those cute little packages of honey mustard and barbecue sauce contain 60 calories and 50 calories, respectively.

My Favorites are missing from Jack in the Box. Their Chicken Fajita Pita only has 366 calories, and their "Grilled", Chicken strips have only 250. Sodium yes, but sodium is not an issue with many people like myself.
