A Surprisingly Good Fast Food Find

My darling roommate is a 6th grade teacher. She happened to have a plethora of tickets from a reading program her school did, and she decided to share the wealth with my family. I kinda laughed when my sister told me to meet the clan at Chick-fil-A, because I was pretty certain that there was not a THING on the menu that I would want to eat.
Well, I was wrong, and I'm not going to lie...I'm a little bit impressed. We used our kids meal coupons to feed the fam, and we were not disappointed. Who knew that Chick-fil-A offers grilled chicken nuggets, and that you can swap out your fries out for fruit? I most certainly did not. It was actually really good!  

 The calorie count is awesome! For the 4 piece grilled chicken nuggets pack it is 80 calories, 1 gram of fat, 17 grams of protein! AND they are made from 100 percent all-breast meat NOT pre-formed meat. It is cut really thin, and without all the fat. I was impressed. This meal was gluten free AND paleo approved...WHAAAAA?
Ummm...like I said...awesome. Also, the fruit cup only has 60 calories in it. Who knew I'd ever be endorsing fast food on the blog? I, of course, think that cooking at home is going to be the best option, but this is pretty dang good if you are on the run!

I'm sorry, but I will have to unfollow your blog for your support of Chick-Fil-A. Good luck with your future running endeavors.

Buffalo Wild Wings also has a great option..naked tenders! They're grilled with no breading! Yipee!

I have liked your blog for quite a while, but I was taken aback by the blatant support for Chick-Fil-A. Can it be unintentional with the media attention that has been surrounding the restaurant? It's hard to believe it was just a coincidence. If so, then poor timing, and perhaps clarification needed. Sorry to have to unfollow your blog as well. Wish the plug for Chick-Fil-A did not happen and personal beliefs could have been left out an otherwise awesome blog about healthy living.

I had no idea they served grilled chicken nuggets that are not made from preformed meat. It does sound like a healthier alternative. However, it seems there has been a lot of political controversy surrounding this place lately.

I love Chick-fil-a and their healthy menu! They make great food. I find it very interesting that a couple of people felt they had to unfollow your blog because of this post. They are allowed to have their own beliefs but you can't have your own? Hmmm, hypocritical much? Thanks for your awesome blog!

I can't believe some of your "followers" would unfollow you just because of this post. Their loss!
