How to Eat Healthy In Bloomsburg

Here is a quick guide about the healthiest food options at local fast food restaurants around Bloomsburg.

General Tips

  • Be wary of liquid calories, especially in drinks you would assume would be healthy, such as smoothies, as these are unhealthier than you think and much less filling! For example, a medium Coca-Cola is 220 calories and a tall Matcha Green Tea Frappuccino from Starbucks is 330 calories. Moreover, avoid things like whipped cream and sweetener in your Starbucks drinks.
  • Salads are not always the healthier option if the protein is deep fried and covered in high-fat dressing or cheese. At fast-food places they often add extra salt to make it taste nicer so it defeats the point of getting a salad to be healthier.
  • Avoid adding cheese, guacamole, ketchup, extra salt and other toppings and extra sauces.
  • Avoid meat and stick to veggie/vegan options, the majority of the time these are the healthier options.

And now, on to specific food locations in Bloomsburg.
