Sometimes eating on the fly is a fact of life. Findings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal that fast food accounts for more than 15 percent of daily calories for people in their twenties and thirties. If your busy schedule calls for the occasional grab-and-go meal,  hopefully this blog will help you make some smart food choices. This blog will discuss some of the healthiest options at the most popular fast food chains.
