Whenever you're on a road trip or are just too busy to cook your own food, fast food establishments seems to be the go-to option. However, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy diet at fast food restaurants. Luckily, we've found three great options at each of the six fast food places we've mentioned.

McDonald's

You don't always have to get a greasy patty at the most popular fast food chain. The fruit 'n yogurt parfait and bacon ranch chicken salad are decently healthy options! Especially if you're on the road and need a quick bite to eat! But if you're craving their nuggets, the 4-piece chicken McNuggets are your best option!
