No matter how much meal planning you do, sometimes you just have to grab something to eat from a restaurant while you're out running errands or get a quick lunch break at work. That can be a challenge if you're trying to eat healthily—so many restaurant choices are high in fat, calories and sodium. Registered Dietitian Danielle Omar, however, has some great ideas for what to order at some popular grab-and-go spots that will satisfy your hungry belly without sabotaging your health.
