On, I struggle eating a healthy meal on the go. It is not easy to pick a healthy meal from fast food restaurant. Today, we are taking my son back to college so We stopped at Zaxby’s because my family wanted chicken. I am trying to eat healthy and knew this would be a struggle. My wife suggested that I get the grilled chicken sandwich without the sauce and replace the fried with celery sticks.

First, I am going to discuss the sandwich. I thought it would be dry but the tomato and lettuce added enough moisture to keep that from happening. The taste is a nice chargrilled flavor. It was quite delicious and one of the meals will come back to to eating.

So what is the caveat? You have to cut the sauces and fried or you will pack on the fat and carbs. To be honest: I did not miss them and I felt less sluggish after the meal.


The bottom line: This meal was a delicious and filling lunch or dinner that I will continue to revisit. The best part is the chicken tastes like it came off the grill and it provides ample protein to keep you full.
