Four low carb alternatives
My body LOVES carbs. It loves them so much that it likes to store them as fat and hold onto them forever. I try to keep carbohydrates to an occasional treat, however sometimes you just can't avoid fast food. So for all my carb-conscious friends out there, here are my favourite low-carb fast food options.
Zambrero Canberra's favourite Mexican restaurant.
My friend's adore Zambrero so I constantly find myself there.
You can get all the flavour of a Zambrero's burrito in a bowl. To truly make it low-carb you need to ask for the bowl without the rice, however with flavorsome sauces and salsas you don't even miss it.
Wok It Up When you think of Wok It Up you tend to associate noodles and rice.
The 'build your own" option allows you to get all the vegetables and meat you like minus the carbs. Otherwise just ask for one of the menu options without the rice or noodles. I've always found that they are willing to oblige.
Micky D's is possibly the hardest option to go low carb.
If you can't avoid it, then put down those fries and big mac there is an option.
You can always ask for a Cheeseburger with no bread and a garden salad. Then you just chop your cheeseburger into your salad. This is a cheap and easy option
