Making healthy choices on the road isn’t always easy, but you can save hundreds of calories with just a few simple changes to your everyday meal. We have a variety of fast food options at our Love's Travel Stops across the country, and you *do* have healthy options!

Swap the mayo, beef and toasted buns for lighter options such as mustard, grilled chicken and lettuce wrap buns. As much as we all love bacon, it racks up calories and fat in no time. You can save close to 100 calories and 10 grams of fat per meal by leaving the bacon behind. Try one these seven healthier options for your next meal:
