COLUMBIA — In a few weeks, most of us will be gorging on endless carbs during an eating-frenzy referred to as “Thanksgiving.” (It’s, personally, one of my favorite holidays. Truth.) But because of this (and the fact that it tends to jump-start the “eating season” of holidays), some of us may be trying to watch what we eat early (so that we’re ahead of the game).

Enter: drive-thru options UNDER 350 calories!

I get it, some of us have crazy schedules and, at times, we find ourselves in the drive-thru lane. It happens. So WHEN it happens, keep this handy-dandy list in your console.
