If you're on a budget and low on time, a fast-food breakfast might be your best bet every once in a while.

Whether you're headed to Burger King or Starbucks, there are usually a few healthier options to choose from.

For this list, we tried to prioritize breakfasts that contain whole food ingredients like eggs and whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Most are 400 calories or fewer and pack a hefty amount of protein to fill you up and fuel your body for the day ahead.


Still, one caveat with most of these items, is that they pack a lot of salt, so watch your sodium intake on the days you eat them.
