As much as we all would like to think we are organized enough to have all of our meals planned and ready to go every day, the fact of the matter is that sometimes we get caught out. Whether we are out doing some weekend shopping, catching up with friends or just out on the road for work it is important to know if we have to eat fast food what is the best option.
Below is a list of my top 4 choices of where and what to eat when out and about. All of these places are very popular amongst shopping centers but if you don’t know if there is one near you just use Google to find the closest one.
It is also important to note that eating fresh and healthy is more expensive when compared to eating processed, preservative and fat filled foods. However the cost of an unhealthy diet on your pocket as well as on your physical health far out ways the immediate cost of investing in increasing your energy, improving your quality of life and of course looking good.
So here are my top 4 fast food places:
