    El Pollo Loco has some healthy & inexpensive options (do they have those on the east coast?) The taco al carbon is citrus-marinated grilled chicken, onions, cilantro, & corn tortillas. Plus they make yummy salsas and whole pinto beans. They also sell veggie sides and it's just steamed broccoli, cauliflour, carrots, etc. EL POLLO LOCO

    We love Pollo Campero...I think they are starting to be nationwide, it's a central American chain. Anyway, their beans are soooo good. I'm not sure how healthy they are but it beats most fast food I'm sure. I get beans, pieces of rotissierie chicken, and plantains and call it a meal! It's really really good and fast.Pollo Campero

    KooKooRoo makes delicious & healthy sides like tomato salad or baked yams that are great, and I'm a fan of their turkey. KooKooRoo

    Wendy's has great turkey sandwiches with veggies that you wouldn't think come from Wendy's. I love Togos veggie or tuna sandwiches too. Also if you don't count carbs like me, Wendy's has a plain baked potato with chives that is a great alternative to french fries and goes well with a salad for when you want something hot to eat.

      I love El Pollo Loco when I visit my sister in LA! They don't have one here in TX. We have Taco Bueno which my sister always has to get when she visits TX! = )

      My favorite healthy fast food is subway- grilled chicken sandwich
      chipotle- bowl of lettuce, chicken, corn salsa and a little gauc
      wendys- baked potato and side salad

      OH I also like Baja Fresh which I first tried in Cali and then I found out they have a few in TX. It's yummy!
