Wendy’s any one?
Here are some really healthy options when eating there!

39430

SALADS:

Mandarin Chicken Salad: 180 calories
– The noodles, almonds, and dressing will add on another 370 calories

Chicken Caesar Salad: 180 calories
– The croutons and dressing will add on another 190 calories

Lowest Calorie dressing: Fat Free French: 70 calories

AVOID THE BLT AND TACO SALAD: all over 400 calories and 22g fat!
… and that is without the toppings!

SANDWICHES / HAMBURGERS:
ultimatechickengrillJr. Hamburger: 230 calories, 8g fat
– Add cheese for another 40 calories

Ultimate Grilled Chicken Sandwich: 320 calories, 7g fat

Grilled Chicken Go Wrap: 250 calories, 10g fat

AVOID THE CHICKEN CLUB SANWICH (550 calories, 26g fat), ANYTHING CRISPY, BACON or DOUBLE / TRIPLE IN THE NAME
– Ask to hold the mayo and cheese on any sandwich or hamburger. It cuts out unnecessary calories and fat!

NUGGETS / WINGS:
4 piece chicken nuggets: 190 calories, 13 g fat

AVOID THE WINGS ALL TOGETHER… THEY ARE ALL OVER 500 CALORIES!

SIDES:
Side Salad: 35 calories
– Don’t forget to add the calories from the dressing!

Mandarin Oranges: 80 calories

Plain Baked Potato: 270 calories
– Add the sour cream and chives and you just added 100 calories
chili
Kids Meal French Fries: 210 calories, 10g fat

Small Chili: 190 calories
Large Chili: 280 calories
– Avoid the crackers and cheese and just added about 100 calories

If you ask me, I love their chili (without the cheese and crackers), a side salad, and a diet coke or ice tea.

    Hai Ruth,

    Thanks for stopping by on my blog. Just read some of your blogs here and it looks interesting so I will visit you more often in the future.

    Lucky for me we don’t have Wendy’s in Holland🙂
    I’m don’t like McDonalds or Burger King very much either, visit that once or twice a year.
    Unfortunately I have other guilty pleasures like chocolate!
