Fast foods are often associated with unhealthy eating. However, over the past years, fast food chains have incorporated healthy food choices on their menu for their health-conscious customers.

Although many people may be skeptical, several dietitians claim that it is possible to eat fast-food and still stick to your weight loss routine. To know which food items to go for, here are a few of the healthiest fast food choices you can try. 

Chicken and Quinoa Protein Bowl with Black Beans and Greens by Starbucks


If you happen to drop by Starbucks, be sure to try their Chicken & Quinoa Protein Bowl with Black Beans and Greens. Although Starbucks may be known to have some of the highest in calorie and sugary food items, this food item can be a redeeming choice. 

According to Healthline, quinoa, which is one of the ingredients of the meal, is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. This filling bowl contains 420 kilocalories, 3 grams of saturated fat, and 9 grams of fiber.

Chicken Soft Tacos by Taco Bell

Surprisingly, Taco Bell was one of the first fast-food restaurants to post ingredient and nutrition information online. Relying on a nutrition calculator is helpful when finding options that fit one's weight loss goals.

One of the best offers of Taco Bell is their chicken soft taco, which contains 160 calories and 12 grams of protein. 

Salad Bowl by Chipotle


Chipotle's salad bowl includes fajita veggies with 20 calories, beans with 130 calories, pico de gallo with 25 calories, and steak, which only gets you 150 calories.
