Steak Kabobs with Dijon Green Beans

Steak Kabobs with Dijon Green Beans

Hey couples, it’s grilling season! I, for one am thrilled to go barefoot in the backyard, grill up some Steak Kabobs with Dijon Green Beans, and enjoy with warm weather…under an umbrella of course…I am one white chick! (This post contains affiliate links off which I may make a commission. Your price remains the same.)

The Steak Oooooh Lala:

So incredibly simple to prep and cook, but the best part? How tender and tasty theses skewers are! You can use filet mignon or top sirloin (which is a little more budget friendly), either way you go, you can’t go wrong.

The Green Beans:

Blanched in boiling water for a few minutes, then rinsed in cold water these beans are bright green and snap-able!

The Dijon Sauce:

Last, a drizzle of dijon sauce made with olive oil, dijon mustard, a little white balsamic (or red wine vinegar) and some lemon. Add a sprinkling of walnuts and parsley and you have an exquisite, healthy meal meant for sharing.

Let’s Talk Grass Fed Beef:

Grass fed beef is better for the cows, better for you and better for the environment. Here’s how: it’s better for the cows because they can roam free and eat grass, their natural food. Corn may make them big and fat, but it also makes them sick requiring them to be shot full of antibiotics which get passed in to you. Better for you because grass fed beef has more healthy fat than corn fed beef, and grass fed is better for the environment because conventional farming creates an incredible amount of waste and pollution. Many stores are starting to sell grass fed beef, but if your area doesn’t have it ButcherBox will deliver to your door!

One Platter, Two Forks, Minimal Clean Up!

We always encourage cooking together. One of prep and cook the steaks, while the other takes care of the green beans and this meal can be made STAT. And barely a dish to wash.

A meal meant to be shared. Paleo, Whole 30 and Keto compliant. Whole 30 friends, just make sure your mustard is compliant. I linked to one above in the blog post.

The Best Healthy Fast Food Options

Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.

Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.

In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.

Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.

1. Subway

Sandwich with cheese and vegetables

One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.

Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.

Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.

A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.

Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell

Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.

According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.

One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.

Bean Burrito is a vegetarian option containing 11 g fat, 380 calories, including 4 g of saturated fat.

3. Chipotle

Vegetable burritos

Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.

Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.

Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.

For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.

4. McDonald's

McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.

Fillet-O-Fish contains 390 calories and 4 g of saturated fat from 19 g of total fat. Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad contains only 320 calories and 6 g of saturated fat from a total of 14 g.

5. Burger King

Burger King is one of the largest burger chains in the United States, but has a limited number of healthy options. But some choices are a little healthier than others.

It contains a normal, simple hamburger, 10 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and 240 calories. Grilled Chicken Sandwich contains 470 calories, 3.5 g saturated fat and 19 g fat.

BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.

6. Wendy

Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate

Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.

Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.

The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.

Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.
