H'angry & Trippin' on the Road? Stop Here!

Is there such thing as heathy fast food? 
Read our top 3 fast food picks below.

How do we eat healthy, on the road, without the creature comforts of our fridge or even healthier and familiar restaurant options? Strategies to Love your Life while on the road include planning ahead, packing your own snacks and educating yourself on how to order out with confidence. But sometimes, with the pedal to the metal, in remote areas, the best you can do is road food. As an occasional necessity, how can you make healthier choices? 

#1 Fast Food Choice: Chipotle
As Steve Ells, Chipotle’s Founder, says, “Just because it’s fast food doesn’t mean it has to be a typical fast food experience.” This is one of the most conscious food companies around.
