Let’s be honest, you’re probably not going to be able to cook every single meal at home. You might think it’s tough to find fast food that fits into the Real Food Diet. But it’s not impossible. Here are some meals that fit the bill or come close enough.
Breakfast at Starbucks
Enjoy: Oatmeal with brown sugar
What makes it a good choice: Many breakfast items are processed and use white flour. Oats (a whole grain!) are a smarter way to go. Sprinkling a little brown sugar on top satisfies your sweet tooth without the need for artificial sweeteners.
Lunch at Chipotle
Enjoy: A chicken-and-bean burrito bowl made with lettuce, black beans, chicken, corn salsa and a dollop of guacamole. Forgo the white rice.
What makes it a good choice: You’re filling up on real chicken instead of processed luncheon meat.
Dinner at Olive Garden
Enjoy: Herb-grilled salmon (a fillet brushed with Italian herbs and extra-virgin olive oil, served with a side of seasoned broccoli)
What makes it a good choice: By eating this healthful dish, you'll satisfy your hunger and won’t feel sluggish afterward the way you would if you ate a big bowl of refined pasta. Plus, broccoli is a good source of fiber, which helps ward off hunger pangs.
Here’s to getting healthier!
