Healthiest Fast Foods Revealed: Just in Time for the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16, Healthline.com Debuts Munchie Madness
Date:3/26/2010

Taco Bell wins healthy competition that pitted 16 fast food meals against each other to determine which restaurant offers the healthiest fast food options

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 26, 2010 -- March Madness has spread across the country, and with only 16 teams left standing in the NCAA Basketball Tournament, things are really heating up. In honor of this great American competition, Healthline.com is creating a healthy kind of madness – Munchie Madness! As more and more popular fast food restaurants add healthier options to their menus, Healthline wanted to know which option at which restaurant was the healthiest of all. They hosted their very own Sweet 16 to find the answer and Taco Bell emerged as the fan favorite.

For the Munchie Madness Sweet 16, Healthline chose 16 popular fast food restaurants – from drive-thru burger joints to pizza deliverers – and pitted them against each other in a head-to-head, tournament-style bracket competition to see which one provides the healthiest option out there.

The competition took into account nutritional statistics – calories, saturated fat, and carbohydrates – but also included other dietary essentials, such as protein and fiber, in the decision-making process. And of course, taste was a factor as well. It took a well-rounded, healthy meal to win this competition.

“It’s a common question on people’s mind,” says Healthline associate editor Elijah Wolfson. “You pull off the highway looking for a quick and healthy meal. There’s a McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Taco Bell and Burger King all right next to each other. Which one has the healthiest fast food options?”

To answer to that question, Healthline is offering a Sweet 16 bracket chock full of helpful and healthy information. There are plenty of healthy options, but only ONE was crowned the champion.
