Eating Healthy at Chick-fil-A

From SparkPeople’s Editors

If you want a burger, Chick-fil-A is not for you. But if you prefer chicken, you've come to the right place. Sandwiches, wraps, soup and even salads are full of fowl. While chicken is usually a better choice than beef, make sure the preparation doesn't add excess fat and calories. (Everything here in fried in peanut oil, so be forewarned if you're allergic.)

  • Wraps can be a trap. They hide larger portion sizes, fat and calories. At Chick-fil-A, they are not bad if the wrap alone is your meal. Most tend to be around 400 calories, with 2-16 g of fat and more than 1,200 mg of sodium.

  • At first glance, the Carrot & Raisin Salad looks like a good side item because it contains fruit and a vegetable. However, the 200-plus calories and 12 g of fat per serving makes it less than ideal.

  • Coleslaw (600 calories, 51 g fat) is another high-fat vegetable side worth skipping! Even half of that is a bad choice.

  • Salads such as the Chargrilled and Fruit Salad (210 calories, 6 g fat, 860 mg sodium), Chargrilled Chicken Garden Salad (170 calories, 6 g fat, 860 mg sodium) or Southwest Chargrilled Salad (240 calories, 9 g fat, 750 mg sodium) with low-fat or fat-free dressing make good choices. Add a Fruit Cup (100 calories, 0 g fat, 0 mg sodium) as a side. These are your best lower-sodium options as well.

  • On a chilly day, the Hearty Chicken Soup (240 calories, 7 g fat) is a tasty way to warm up, but not if you are watching your sodium intake--it has 1,670 mg.

  • If you're watching your sodium intake, choose carefully. Most of the menu items here are high in sodium.

  • Chick-fil-A provides nutrition info on its website.
