Popeyes reportedly has a “healthy” menu option. Come again? Let’s find out what it is!
Healthy food and Popeyes doesn’t add up, and hey, we’re totally okay with that! Here at Guilty Eats, we are guilty for a reason, and it’s not for our healthy meal habits.
Let’s just say fast food and snacks are what we live for, and Popeyes is one of our favorite fast food chains. At Popeyes, we always find a great deal on some of the best fast food in the business! What is your favorite meal from here?
When Mashed reported what the healthiest menu item at Popeyes was, we had to look into it! If you are also curious, read on!
The chicken sandwiches at Popeyes are delicious, but not something someone who wants to eat healthy meals would order. According to the source, the chain’s chicken sandwich has nearly 700 calories and 42 grams of fat, and let’s not even get into the sodium!
For a healthier chicken sandwich, I suggest Chick-fil-A or Wendy’s. They won’t be as delicious, but you may feel better about it.
The “healthiest” menu options at Popeyes
Beginning with a drink, it’s best to order an unsweet tea, the source shares. For a side, you’ll have to settle with corn on the cob –easy on the butter. And for the big meal, stay away from the chicken sandwich!
Women’s Health believes you are best off with the handcrafted blackened chicken tenders. To be honest, I didn’t even know this was an option, ha! I’m all about the famous chicken sandwich. The calorie count for this meal is 170 for a three-piece and 283 for a five-piece, significantly less than the chicken sandwich.
Instead of 42 grams of fat, you’re looking at 2 for the three-piece and 3 for the five-piece.
While I have never tried the handcrafted blackened chicken tenders, I’m willing to give them a chance! If you’ve had this before, let us know your thoughts!
