We were in a mad rush running errands but as we were both hungry, we decided to stop at the nearest fast food store and order a quick take-away lunch. I NEVER eat take-away so you can imagine my disappointment knowing that I would have to choose something from a fast food menu.
The first sign we saw was for Wendy’s. I did a quick search online and found that their nutritional menu was uploaded onto their webpage. How fantastic?! This meant that I would be able to choose the best lunch option to suit my regular eating desires.
I opted for a half serve of their Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad which consisted of grilled chicken on top of a feta cheese, hummus, and sundried tomato quinoa combination. It was so fresh and delicious. The chicken came drizzled in the most delicious hummus that I didn’t even add the salad dressing! At only 230 calories I was more than impressed! For those of you, who like me count macros, you’re welcome…check out these babies.
F: 8g | C: 21g | P: 20g
As I wasn’t sure how large the portion would be, I also ordered a Grilled Chicken Wrap which was also deliciously fresh and flavoursome. The grilled chicken breast was wrapped in a small flour tortilla amongst lettuce, cheddar cheese and a honey mustard dressing. At only 270 calories and with the following macro count (F: 10 | C: 24g | P: 20g) I was not disappointed with my lunch choices!
Next time we stop at Wendy’s I know exactly what I will choose: a full serve of the Mediterranean Chicken Salad that’s for sure! The service was fast and friendly and allowed us to continue on with our busy day.- exactly what we needed.
