Real Simple has an article showing how small ordering choices can make fast food healthier. Not healthy. Just a little less like eating nuclear weapons for lunch. The highlight:

    Fast-Food Chain:

    If You Usually Order:
    Six-piece Chicken McNuggets (with a side of ranch sauce) and large French fries.

    Make It Healthier:
    Ask for medium fries and replace the ranch sauce with barbecue and you’ve knocked 345 calories off your meal.

Apparently, ranch sauce and fries are made of plutonium. —MEGHANN MARCO
