10 Healthy Fast Casual Restaurants to Try Any Time of Day. Whether you’re filling up mid-road trip or taking a quick break to pick up lunch, fast-casual restaurants are a convenient alternative to fast food and packed lunches. While many restaurants are making an effort to provide health-conscious options, smart choices remain tricky with high-sodium soups, high-fat dressings and high-calorie. From the west coast to the east coast, here are 12 healthy, well-known fast-casual destinations in the states. Read on to discover the top 5 healthiest fast food restaurants and the best menu choices at each one.

1. McDonalds. Yes, the Golden Arches make this list of healthiest fast food restaurants. There are several reasons for this.

In 2011 McDonalds made a pledge to “champion children’s well-being,” “expand and improve nutritionally-balanced. So we teamed up with registered dietitian Rebecca Lewis, who works in-house at HelloFresh, to bring you the lightest, healthiest items at 10 of our favorite guilty pleasure fast-food joints — all for less than $5. You’ll notice that some of our really, really favorite fast-casual restaurants (think: burritos) don’t show up on this list. The fast-casual sibling of P.F. Chang’s hit its 200th unit late last year, and the growth hasn’t slowed.

Notably, it opened its first unit on a college campus last year. And as it expands, Pei Wei is embracing a new, lighter look that was rolled out in 2015—with all existing restaurants expected to be remodeled over the next few years. When it comes to restaurants, fast casual has been the growth darling of the industry for almost 20 years.

While it still accounts for less than 10% of the total market, the number and diversity of fast casual restaurants has been exploding across the country, with an astounding growth of over 500% since 1999!The newly frugal spent more of their dining dollars at fast-casual restaurants and chains offering fresh food for just a bit more than quickserve prices, and fast casual has been the fastest. A 2016 study in the Journal of the Acad­emy of Nutrition and Dietetics compared 3,200 full-size entrees from 34 fast-food and 28 fast-casual restaurants in the U.S. Calories ranged from just over 300 to 1,035, with fast-casual entrees averaging 200 more than fast food (760 versus 560). The study did not assess the nutritional quality of the meals.

The fast casual opened 10 restaurants in 2017 and expanded to two new markets, bringing its total unit count to 33 restaurants in six states and Washington, D.C. Roti, which was founded in 2007, expects to keep that pace humming in 2018, with even more markets on the horizon.
