Wish Upon A Dish: Best Fast Convenience Food Choices - Sonic

Best Fast Convenience Food Choices - Sonic

Week four of my best fast food choices for Diabetics and anyone looking to eat less carbs, takes us to Sonic.

I do not have one near me and there are only four drive-ins in the whole state of NJ but there is one right over the Delaware River in PA. On our way to visit his Mom, we needed to eat something and Sonic was right there. I probably didn't make the best choice with their chicken nuggets.

Chicken fingers, nuggets and crispers are my fast food downfall, so when I do eat them (usually at Chili's), I make sure they are real meat chicken and take out half the order and put it back in the bag, pawn them off on The Nudge or throw them away.
Yes, it's a waste of food but better that then sacrificing my health not to mention the guilt I feel afterwards.

Sonic has 28 pages of menu items, that is a huge amount, so I only picked the basics that I thought would be ordered most often. I also am not including any drinks or sweets.

Sonic is my once-in-a-while indulgence, I love their diet limeades, chicken strips and breakfast burrito for lunch. :D
