There are a number of Burger Kings in Harlem, so if you love juicy, tender burgers, sandwiches and hotdogs, but you worry about your health, you may want to follow these tips for eating fast food. You probably won’t know about healthy options available at Burger King because everything is not listed on the menu. Yes, they are less salad and less healthy options available. But there are also some healthy items, filled with protein and are veggie. Burger King also offers a low calorie, gluten-free, low carb and low sugar options. Here is a list of what you and your kids should be eating at Burger King.
We recommend Apple Sauce, Green Side Salad with no croutons or cheese, Golden Italian Dressing and French fries. These are the only options available for vegans at Burger King. There is a veggie burger available too, but since the patty is covered in milk and egg, it is not vegan. Although you can eat a veggie burger without the patty, there will be no protein in the burger, you will soon need another. Eat a green side salad with value fries to fulfill your cravings.
Nuggets, hamburgers, apple sauce, and fat-free milk will keep your kid healthy and satisfy for a long time. You can also feed Vanilla soft serve, Oreo Shake and Chocolate Sundaes to your kid, they will be delighted.
For Calorie Counters
You might not believe but fast food does offer low-calorie options. Calorie counters can try a tender grill chicken sandwich without mayonnaise. It only has 320 calories but is high in protein. It will satisfy your tummy for a long time. The other options include salads without dressing, a veggie burger without pickles and mayonnaise. But if you want to add dressing to your salad try BK’s Lite Honey Balsamic Dressing, it has 120 calories. Calories can differ. To see more grilled or dressing options on the menu, visit this website.
If you have celiac disease, you can’t eat foods with gluten present in it. Don’t worry, you can always eat whopper without the bun or you can also Tender grill Chicken or Garden grilled salad without croutons. Even gluten-free French fries are also available. Satisfy your cravings without worrying about your allergies.
Although Burger King has a wide variety of breakfast items and platters if you don’t want to eat unhealthily you are left with not many options. You can try egg and cheese croissan’wich and maple-flavored oatmeal. These two items are low in sodium, fat, and calories. You can also add bacon in your croissan’wich if you want. And if you are eating with a group you can go for a breakfast platter, it contains sausages, scrambled eggs, hash browns, pancakes, and a biscuit. But the platter is high in sodium.
For Gym Lovers
If you jog, or go dancing or spin classes, or do the gym regularly. The flame-grilled chicken burger is a perfect combination of protein and carbs. To bring down the sodium count you can skip mayonnaise and pickles, or replace its mustard sauce. Flavored low-fat milk is also available. But eating unhealthy food once in a while is not a bad option either. It will satisfy your cravings and you can always make it up in the gym for one bad meal.
There are options for road trips or low carbs too. What makes the burger king so popular and loved is its customers and burger king takes very good care of its customers. If you have any allergies or disease, ask a Burger King employee to assist you in choosing your meal.
