I am a sucker. Big time. As soon as I see a commercial for something that catches my eye I MUST HAVE IT!
This week the Wendy’s commercials for their new side option – a sweet potato was the thing. So, when date night rolled around tonight I told Ben I wanted a Wendy’s Sweet potato and a Carl’s Jr. Turkey Burger.
Okay the original plan was to go to Native Foods for a tempeh burger, but I did the math and figured the calorie stats were similar and I really wanted a burger-y type meal.
So we stopped at Wendy’s for the baked sweet potato. It’s $2.49 and comes with brown sugar butter. Tip: ask for NO BUTTER. Even though it’s on the side it’s irresistible. If you taste it you will eat it. So good.
I don’t remember the last time I ate “fast food”, but I don’t have any food rules anymore so I’m pretty sure the sky isn’t going to fall based on this meal. The Carl’s Jr. Turkey Burger has 490 calories. You can read all their nutritional info here.
My date used to eat fast food all the time. He thought it was weird to see me there
We shared the dessert and the fries for a more moderate meal
Question: Thoughts on the Wendy’s Sweet Potato?
