I've eaten at Wendy's several times and I do just as you described, and put together a healthy menu that will satisfy me and is healthy at the same time.

Blessings!

Sometimes you have to eat on the run. Sometimes you just want to eat away from home. But can you fit fast food into a healthy diet? Of course! Here are some healthy options you can find when dining out at Wendy's.

Most of these options are below 250 calories and 10 grams of fat and can be included in a health diet once in a while.

Jr. Hamburger

Mandarin Chicken Salad (skip the almond, noodles and substitute the dressing)
Calories - 180
