9) Starbucks Breakfast
The popular specialty coffee and tea store isn’t known for their super reasonable prices when it comes to their signature drinks. However, it is possible to grab a heart-healthy breakfast from Starbucks without creating a dent in your wallet. They have delicious and healthy options under $5 that will leave you feeling full and satisfied all morning. Try the Spinach, Egg White, & Feta Wrap which boasts whole grains and a healthy mix of fats, carbs, and protein for under 300 calories, 3.5 grams of saturated fat, and 6 grams of fiber. Another option is the Greek Yogurt Parfait at just 250 calories. Even the luxurious sounding Bacon, Gouda, Egg is just 350 calories. Lastly, you can’t go wrong with Wholegrain Oatmeal at just 160 calories. Who knew Starbucks was good for healthy food as well as your caffeine fix?[adrotate group=”3″]
10) Jack in the Box Pita
How could a generously stuffed warm pita of flavorful grilled chicken morsels, crispy onions, shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce, and tomato be healthy? And be under $5? It’s hard to believe, but at one of America’s most beloved fast food chains, it’s true. The Chicken Fajita Pita featured at Jack in the Box is the perfect lunch or snack. It’s got under 350 calories and just 6 grams of saturated fat. Thanks to the pita bread you get 16 grams of whole grains and 4 grams of fiber, too. And all the grilled chicken adds up to a hefty 24 grams of protein. Who said fast food can’t be healthy? It can and it is at Jack in the Box! Additionally, the Breakfast Jack is another healthy choice of fast food breakfast sandwich for the same calorie and saturated fat content as the pita option.
