When you’re forced to eat at KFC.

So recently while I was shooting the film Hog’s Tooth in San Francisco, I wasn’t able to stick to my regular diet. In fact, I had to eat out a few times and some of the places were fast food restaurants. I sat there at the KFC register trying to figure out the “healthiest” option on the menu that would A. fill me up and B. have a decent protein/carb/fat ratio. So afterwards, I went home and did a little research and this is what I came up with.

Kentucky Fried Chicken 

My personal recommendation: 

Grilled Chicken Breast and BBQ Baked Beans
With this meal, you get 430 calories, 48g of protein, 41g of carbs, and 8.5g of fat.
