On particularly busy days, fast food restaurants can feel like a necessity. We all know the local McDonald’s or Burger King isn’t the best place to grab a healthy meal. But unless you live in a major city with dozens of local eateries on each block, fast food might be the only thing you have time to grab.

Each of the most popular chains has a few relatively healthy fast food options. But if you don’t have time to pore over specific menus, you can make the right choice by remembering a few simple rules. Keep in mind many fast food chains offer the same foods. And a grilled chicken sandwich, for instance, will always make a healthier meal than a fried chicken sandwich. Here are the items you should always order at a fast food restaurant when you’re watching your weight or looking out for your health.

1. Egg and cheese sandwich

Grabbing a fast food breakfast before work? Be careful what you order. A sandwich that includes processed meats, such as sausage and bacon, can add a lot of calories and fat to your meal. And processed meats also increase your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, COPD, and even some forms of cancer. Go for a sandwich with just egg and cheese for a much healthier breakfast or brunch.
