Want to eat great, even when you're eating out? Make these healthier choices at Burger King

Burger King swap

Swap the salad

Salads aren’t always the healthiest choice. Such is the case with Burger King’s Chicken BLT Salad. Go for a Veggie Burger with a side salad instead and you’ll save 190 calories, 31 grams of fat (10 grams satur­ated) and 130 milligrams of sodium. (But beware: That sodium is still high.)

Swap this: TenderGrill Chicken BLT Salad (grilled chicken, iceberg and romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, bacon bits, with Caesar dressing)
500 calories + 39 g fat (13 g saturated fat) + 1,470 mg sodium

For that:
BK Veggie Burger (soy patty with lettuce, tomatoes, ketchup, mustard) and a side garden salad (with low-calorie Italian dressing)
310 calories + 8 g fat (3 g saturated fat) + 1,340 mg sodium
