When ordering fast food, it’s important to be aware of the nutritional value of what you are ordering. Some fast food items have a shocking amount of calories and grams of total fat. Here are some of the healthiest fast food options that you can order at Arby’s.
Roast Beef Sandwiches and Melts
Arby’s is the most well known for its roast beef sandwiches and melts, but some of them 600 or more calories! If you are planning on opting for a roast beef, consider the regular roast beef sandwich, which has 340 calories (100 from fat) and 11 grams of total fat. If you prefer a roast beef sandwich with cheese, opt for the Arby’s melt, which has 370 calories (120 from fat) and 13 grams of total fat. You’ll want to stay away from the roast ham and Swiss sandwich, however, which cashes in at 710 calories, 30 grams of total fat, and over 2,000 mg of sodium.
Market Fresh Salads
Arby’s Market Fresh salads are some of the healthiest items on the fast food chain’s menu. The Chopped Farmhouse Salad with turkey and ham or roast chicken both have 250 calories (120 from fat) and 13 to 14 grams of fat. This Market Fresh Salad can be an excellent option if you are looking for a healthy and filling meal at Arby’s.
If you are planning to order chicken at Arby’s, you’re in luck. The roast chicken sandwich, when ordered without mayonnaise, only has 300 calories (45 from fat) and 4.5 grams of total fat. This makes it an extremely healthy option if you’re looking for a healthy Arby’s sandwich. Stay away from the crispy chicken Cordon Blue sandwich though. It checks in at 620 calories (270 from fat) and 30 grams of total fat.
Market Fresh Sandwiches
Arby’s Market Fresh sandwiches are generally thought to be a healthier alternative to roast beef sandwiches. They seem healthy because they are served on honey wheat bread and come with vegetables, but be careful because the condiments (e.g. mayonnaise, dressing, honey mustard) can add on a lot of calories and fat. The benefit of Arby’s Market Fresh sandwiches is that they are very filling. The roast turkey and Swiss Market fresh sandwich, without mayo or honey mustard, will cost you 560 calories (120 from fat) and 13 grams of total fat.
Like at other fast food restaurants, Arby’s sides pack a lot of additional calories and fat onto your meal. If you’re planning to order home-style fries, opt for a small size – which has 360 calories (140 from fat) and 16 grams of total fat. A much healthier alternative is a chopped side salad, which will only add 70 calories (45 from fat) and 5 grams of total fat to your meal.
