Wow. Just...wow. I think I've been to Sonic three times in my life. I just can't do the whole, car hop, thing. Of all the fast food nutrition information that I've looked at in writing these posts, Sonic is, BY FAR, the worst fast food establishment to find a decent, relatively healthy meal.

* The Santa Fe Chicken Salad has only slightly higher calories, so it's also a decent choice.

** Ok, that's all I need to see. When one of the healthiest items on the menu is a freaking corn dog, I see no reason to go there. Looks like I've done good to avoid Sonic.

If more people knew about this hopefully they wouldn't eat fast food so often. It's so easy to grab a piece of fruit, a hard boiled egg and be on your way - but unfortunately most folks reach for a "fast" food instead -- I am guilty of it too in the past. It's been over 70 weeks since I've had any fast food - other then the occasional subway sandwish (no dressing no cheese) or a panera's salmon salad (only 350 calories)
