Whether you’re in a rush, low on cash, or just craving something greasy, sometimes fast food is the only answer. Nearby, there’s a redheaded girl with pig tails and freckles calling your name.

Wendy’s has a few salads on the menu – and they all sound delicious! However, be aware that some are healthier than others. The Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad has the least amount of calories which is under 500. Plus, 40g of protein and 8g of fiber. According to nutritionists, Willow Jarosh and Stephanie Clarke, “These salads are a nice way to get veggies in [while on the road]–along with some protein.” One word of caution from Marisa Moore, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, “They often toss in a couple packs of salad dressing. Skip the second one; keep your dressing to no more than one packet.”

Another nutritionist, Jennifer Neily, suggests the Grilled Chicken sandwich. “At only 370 calories and a whopping 34 grams of protein, it's decently filling, and the fresh veggies on top add a bit of healthfulness. The honey mustard dressing makes it surprisingly flavorful, too!"

hamburger

Last but not least, Willow Jarosh and Stephanie Clarke also suggested the Junior Hamburger with a side salad. This satisfies that greasy food craving! "We would go for a Junior Hamburger with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mustard or ketchup, as well as a garden side salad with pomegranate vinaigrette and spicy cashews and apple slices, all clocking in at 460 calories in total.”
