Fast Food Meals That Don’t Break The Nutrition Bank

If you find yourself at a fast food restaurant, there are plenty of options to chose from that can fuel your run.

Fast food restaurants get a bad rap—often for a good reason. But you can find some quick meals when you’re on-the-go that aren’t totally horrible for your running body.

Here are eight fast-food eats to turn to in a pinch, with add-ons to complete your meal and still stay under 500 calories. They’re all a decent source of carbs and protein to fuel your run.
