I didn't have a whole lot to share today so I bloamed (blog/roamed) to see what everyone was up to. I started to see a common thread.... everyone ends up in a fast food restaurant sometime during their 'diet'... so I thought I would share something with y'all. I carry this around with me in my car, just in case I have to do an emergency pit stop for lunch with the kids...

This is a list of the HEALTHIEST and the WORST food at each restaurant.

I have a bunch of others, but these are the main ones that I use... if you want to see if I have one of your local fast food joints just comment me and I'll post it.

Write these down and put them in your car... that way if you find yourself in a drive thru, you will know the smart choices!!

Have a Great day!

I've seen lists like this before. So scary the calories in some of this stuff! I will never have a DQ Blizzard again! they can have upwards of 1000 calories! Thanks for spreading the good word!

Thanks for the updated. I am sooo glad we no longer have a Dairy Queen in town - I loved their blizzards, I am a fan of the Oreo cookie one.
