Beat the Fast-Food Convenience Trap

It’s easy to fall into the trap of convenience foods while rushing to work in the morning, getting the kids ready for school, grabbing a quick bite while out running errands. Everywhere we look, the familiar drive-thru lane screams convenience. So, how do we avoid this trap?

While the smell of the drive-thru restaurant around the corner might be enticing, humans were not designed to eat fast food. To function at our best, we need a balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fiber, vitamins, minerals and good fats. Deep-fried, processed foods and drive-thru lanes provide none of these. Even the “healthy” options some fast food companies now offer are still packed with hidden calories, sugar and sodium.
