You most likely don't think of fast food when you hear Gwyneth Paltrow's name. But even the actress and founder of Goop isn't immune to the life circumstances that typically land you in the line at the nearest Taco Bell. "We do our best to keep things clean and healthy, [but] we're also realists who know that sometimes—especially when it's airline-terminal-adjacent, right off the next highway exit, or at your kid's all-day competition—we're going to eat fast food," write the Goop editors. Below, read up on the five fast food restaurants that get a pass from the health and wellness site (and what to order at each):
Chipotle: "A salad bowl, with some brown rice if you're hungry. Load up on the veggies, skip the dairy, add black beans, and you're good to go."
Panda Express: "Plain brown rice (not on display, but they always have it), plus steamed veggies, and grilled mandarin chicken."
Wendy's: "The Power Mediterranean Chicken Salad (the half-size is actually really generous), which is loaded with grilled chicken, feta, and a blend of quinoa, chickpeas, white beans, roasted veggies, and sundried tomatoes. Skip the hummus/sauce that comes with it, and just get the balsamic vinaigrette packet."
Subway: "Any sandwich can be turned into a salad, but we approach it like a straight-up salad bar—we get lettuce, spinach, peppers, cucumbers, olive, onion, tomato, carved turkey, and avocado."
