Wendy’s Pick 2: Review and Giveaway

As a Mom of two young girls who also works outside the home full time, I tend to eat on the go more than I really should.  When we are running from work, to school, to dance class, and home to start homework, sometimes it is just easier to drive thru a local chain restaurant for dinner.  I do my best to choose healthy options for my kids such as white milk, apples or yogurt instead of sodas and fries, but honestly, I get tired of eating grilled chicken.

Fortunately, Wendy’s has developed a new Pick 2 menu for healthier eating on the go!  Wendy’s has been a long time innovator in providing healthy options introducing the salad bar thirty years ago.  Now, with a line of recently reinvented salads, you can  select from one of four half-sized salads including the Apple Pecan Chicken Salad, the Baja Salad, the Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad and the BLT Cobb Salad and pair it with one of seven tasty options.  Looking to stay low in calories?  Choose a Dasani water or small diet soda!  Want a heartier meal?  Pair your salad with a small chili!  You can also choose from a Chicken Wrap, small frosty, Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, or an oven-baked potato.  Their are a ton of possibilities all for only $4.99 ending boring on the go meals.

I tried out the new Pick 2 menu at lunch and opted for the Apple Pecan Chicken Salad and small unsweet iced tea.  I absolutely loved the salad…especially the seasoned pecans!  This meal definitely beat getting the standard grilled chicken sandwich making me much more likely to pick a healthier lunch and less likely to give in to french fry cravings.
