Fast Food that’s Actually Healthy! – McDonald’s Asian Salad.

McDonald’s Asian Inspired Salad

McDonald’s is trying to get into the swing of things in terms of the healthy lifestyles. No longer just a budget burger joint; its evolving salad lineup is really taking off. The Asian-inspired salad is currently my go-to at work, because it’s got almost 30 grams of protein from the grilled chicken(do not get the fried) and edamame, 5 grams of fiber from all the veggies(bell peppers, Kale, onions), plus healthy fats from the crunchy nuts. I try to use only ½ of a packet of dressing. This salad is relatively low in sodium and carbs, and tastes great! It’s the perfect fusion of Asian and deliciousness 🙂
