Getting breakfast from a fast food joint? Sounds like a diet disaster! Well these days, you are in luck. There happen to be many options for a quick breakfast run that aren’t half bad and you won’t have to pray over it first! According to Christine Gerbstadt, MD, RD, spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association, “It is about finding a good mix of complex carbs like whole grains, protein, and healthy fats to keep you satisfied.”

Many food giants are rolling out healthy breakfast options, that even your doctor can’t deny! Here are just a few:

Subway 6” Egg & Cheese Omelet Sandwich (with Regular Egg) (vegetarian)
360 calories
19 g protein
12 g fat (4.5 g saturated, 0 g trans)
860 mg sodium
6 g sugar

Dunkin’ Donuts Two Egg-White Sausage Wake-Up Wraps
300 calories
18 g protein
14 g fat (6 g saturated, 0 g trans)
720 mg sodium
28 g carobhydrates (2 g fiber, 2 g sugar)

Dr. Gerbstadt shares that this meal “refuels you and keeps you satisfied so you don’t overdo it the rest of the day.

Try to offset this by eating low fat meals throughout the remainder of your day!

The portions are just right and it tastes fab! On the downside, the honey butter paired with the cheese can make this meal a bit higher on the fat side. Maybe try reapportioning those items to just half!
