HEALTHY RESTAURANT ORDERS: Chick-Fil-A

healthy chick-fil-a market salad

Another restaurant. Another healthy order. I could tell you 10 different orders I have at Chick-Fil-A that are absolutely delicious as I’m sure you could tell me. 

I follow the 80/20 rule when it comes to nutrition: 80% of the time I am eating nutrient-dense, portioned meals and 20% of the time, I am more relaxed. Of course, I indulge and enjoy at restaurants but part of a healthy lifestyle is being able to select healthier options when eating out.

My goal with the “Healthy Restaurant Orders” blog post series is to empower you to feel confident ordering when you’re at fast food spots and eating out.

THE ORDER:

  • market salad
  • double chicken 
  • dressing choice of light balsamic vinaigrette (use half)
  • diet lemonade (I can’t resist when I’m a CFA)

MACROS: 14 grams protein | 13 grams fat | 32 grams carbohydrates

 

NOTE: Chick-Fil-A states the salad contains 7 grams of protein, so doubling the chicken would yield ~14 grams of protein. Crazy girl over here… I once was eating this salad in my kitchen and thought to myself, “this looks like way more chicken than 7 grams of protein. I weighed the chicken and it was 3 oz total, which is approximately 20 grams of protein. Just a little note that there may be more protein on the salad than stated! A win for us!

    Something I like to do is get the kale side salad with the small order of grilled nuggets (plus the diet lemonade or an unsweet tea!). There are so many ways to get creative and still eat healthy when eating out.
