Health Magazine recently named the top 10 healthiest places to eat out, and let me just tell you I LOVE this list. Complete with a few of my favorites. Here's how it broke down.
#1 - Panera Bread
#2 - Jason's Deli
#3 - Au Bon Pain
#4 - Noodles & Company
#5 - Corner Bakery and Cafe
#6 - Chipotle
#7 - Atlanta Bread
#8 - Mcdonalds
#9 - Einstein Bros. Bagels
#10 -Taco Del Mar
Reasons why I love this list...
-The only restaurants that don't show the nutrition facts online are Chipotle and Atlanta Bread. 8/10 ain't bad. I LOVE when restaurants provide the stats. It makes all of our lives easier when trying to make good eating out decisions.
-I know what you're thinking...WTF McDonalds!?!? I thought the same thing. BUT, then I re-thought about it and I feel better now. It's good to know places like McD's are trying to create healthy options for us to eat.
One thing to remember. Just because it's on the list doesn't mean you should go there and have a hay day. There are still plenty of un-healthy menu options, there are some huge portions, there is still the option that you might overeat. SO, look at the nutrition facts beforehand. Find good options that will work for you. Be smart. Be careful. Be healthy!!
