Is It Possible to Have Healthy Fast Food?

Starting this Spring, Burger King is going to launch a new campaign to try to lure the health conscious among us. In addition to their classic burgers and popular chicken sandwiches, they’re planning to introduce a limited time turkey burger. They say that, if the items are popular enough, they’ll add the poultry patties to their menus permanently.

This made me wonder – honestly, is it possible to eat “healthy” at fast food restaurants?

I don’t eat fast food all that often. But, like most Americans, I like a greasy treat every now and then. We’re talking maybe once a month.

But even if you replace that beef patty with lower fat turkey, will it make that much of a difference in the long run when you pair it with an order of fries?

Speaking of treats, If you want a real stomach churning reality check, take a look at what goes into McDonalds’ popular seasonal Shamrock Shake.

Kind of makes you want to just make one at home with real ice cream and mint flavoring, huh?

So what do you think? Can fast food still be a part of a healthy overall diet? Comment below and let us know your thoughts!
