More choices make it easier to eat out healthfully

Jack (from Jack in the Box), Dave (from Wendy's) and the Colonel (from KFC) must stay up nights thinking of new foods to add to their menus, because each new year brings more fast-food options.

Some of the products come and go as quick as you can say, "McLean Deluxe." But others, like Homestyle Chicken Strips, stay around and become permanent fast-food fare. I remember the day when the nugget had no chicken competition.

There have been so many changes at the major fast-food chains this year that I can hardly keep up! Lots of salads are now available, and there are a few more sandwiches and wraps to choose from. Even the die-hard pizza chains are making changes -- there's a "skinny" crust at Round Table Pizza now.

Just so we all know what's out there now, I went through the fast-food nutrition guides, made a few phone calls, and rounded up some of the newer items that have some nutritional merit. Take a look, and the next time you drive through one of these fast-food chains' windows, you might have something new to look forward to!
