It’s 2018, and if you’re like everyone else, you made a new year’s resolution (don’t lie, we all did), and chances are your resolution included eating better. So you’ve been reading up on the ketogenic diet and purchasing the top-of-the-line meal-prep dishes. But then, you find yourself at work on Wednesday: You’re tired, you didn’t prep (nor did you want to) and you have 30 minutes until you have to be back at work.

Never fear! My Lunch Bunch buddy and I spent our holiday finding the best options in town that are quick and won’t destroy your diet. They may not be completely keto-friendly, but these options are low-carb, inexpensive and quick. Here are our top three new year’s resolution-friendly options:

The Simply Greek

First on our list is The Simple Greek. Located next to Market Street, The Simple Greek is a handy option for Greek food lovers. Customers create their own options as they go through the line. We recommend the salad bowl with a base of spinach leaves. Then, double your protein with chicken gyro and lamb gyro for variety. Finally, top it with the village salad (with or without onions), black olives, feta and tzatziki sauce (for those healthy fats and added protein). Add the spice with some complimentary Frank’s RedHot sauce.

This meal will cost you about $12, plus a bottled water for $0.99!

Chipotle Mexican Grill

Next on our list is Chipotle. While this may seem surprising, Chipotle is probably the easiest and fastest option that won’t blow your diet. Located in the Wayne Village shopping center across from Sikes Senter Mall, Chipotle is in a centralized location from most anywhere in Wichita Falls. We recommend starting with a salad bowl. Skip the rice, beans and salad dressing, and instead add some fajita veggies and double your protein (I like steak and chicken). Then, add pico de gallo, guacamole and sour cream (for the healthy fats). Add the heat with some complimentary Tabasco sauce.

This meal will cost around $10-$12, plus a small drink (unsweet tea or Coke Zero Sugar) at $1.90!

 

The Parkway Grill

Last but not least is the Parkway Grill. Located on Southwest Parkway, this local restaurant is famous for its fried goodies and sports bar atmosphere. However, Parkway serves up quick, inexpensive lunch options with huge portions and great service. We recommend the burger in a bowl which includes lettuce, tomato, black olives, shredded cheddar, guacamole and a huge burger patty. Ask for ranch or bleu cheese dressing (for the healthy fats), and add some heat with the complimentary Tabasco sauce.

This meal will cost about $11, and you won’t leave hungry!

There you have it, folks: the Lunch Bunch’s top three new year’s resolution-friendly options in Wichita Falls. Whether your new year’s resolution was to lose weight, or you just want to eat better, these options will save you if you’re in a pinch and didn’t have time to prep your chicken breast and kale salad (because, seriously, what human being has time to do that every day?). Happy eating!
