Wendys-Artisan Egg Sandwich

 

This option represents less than 15 percent of your calorie intake, 30 percent of your protein intake, and features 0 Trans Fat. However, it contains 22 percent of your daily sodium intake and only leaves you with 65mg of cholesterol for the rest of the day. If you are running late in the morning and you find yourself at a Wendy’s this is the best option given the high sodium and calorie options in other offerings. Keep in mind your remaining cholesterol intake and you can come in under your DV. Consider other options especially the Egg White Delight at McDonalds if your busy schedule allows for it.
