Any fast food item can be made healthy. My favorite is homemade fries and they are SO good! Start slow by buying your favorite fast food burger but making your own fries at home. Next time, use ground turkey for burgers and even scrap the cheese to save on the fat. Get creative with toppings like spicy barbecue sauce and grilled onions and mushrooms. Pretty soon you'll be driving right on by that fast food joint because you know you can make it better at home!
