I just can't with America's fast food obsession. Why are there so many of these franchises? You can't drive a block without seeing one. Look, I have kids. I get it. A lot of it is convenience.
Hit up your local grocery store. We're on the West Coast, so we have Ralph's, Von's, Gelson's and of course, wonderful glorious Whole Foods. All of these stores have fresh salad bars and some of them have hot bars, soups and full-service delis. Whole Foods also has a poke bar, fresh pizzas premade or prepped to order, and sushi.
Subway and similarly, Jersey Mike's, and Jimmy John's are the healthiest options if you must do fast food. Chipotle is also not too bad either, with beans, rice and veggies.
Grocery stores also have a million pre-made foods. Trader Joes is especially great in this realm. If it has an upcoming expiration date, it's fresh without preservatives. Yes, please!
