When you’re on the go and need something to fill you up, high protein fast food can be a great option. At Konala, we offer delicious high protein options that leave you satisfied, without the sluggish feeling that comes with a lot of other highly processed fast food items. Find out how Konala compares to some of the most popular high protein fast food out there.
As more people discover the health benefits of a high protein diet, the demand for high protein fast food options has increased drastically. Today, a lot of big name brands offer high protein fast food items, so we decided to see how Konala stacks up to the competition. In no order whatsoever, we took a look at seven major restaurants in the area to compare protein options.
McDonald's Double Quarter Pounder With Cheese vs. Konala Poke Bowl
As one of the most widespread fast food chains in the world, you can almost always find a McDonald’s while you’re out and about. The menu item with the most protein is the Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese, with 48g. However, this burger also contains 42g of fat and 720 calories—which is a lot for one sandwich!
In comparison, Konala’s Poke Bowl has 34g of protein, but only 17g of fat and 358 calories. The combination of fresh rice, ahi tuna, and cucumber salad hits the spot every time.
Wendy's Apple Pecan Salad vs. Konala Bang Bang Shrimp
We love a good salad, and Wendy’s salads can be surprisingly filling. The Apple Pecan Salad with chicken contains 29g of protein and tastes great when the apples are fresh and crisp.
When paired with a base of greens, Konala’s Bang Bang Shrimp is an amazing salad option as well, with a whopping 36g of protein. We love to add Dynamite Sauce for a nice kick.
Arby's Classic French Dip & Swiss vs. Konala Jerk Chicken Bowl
Arby’s self-proclaimed slogan is “We have the meats,” and they certainly have a lot of high protein fast food options. The Classic French Dip sandwich for example contains 34g of protein.
Hoagies aren’t our specialty, but at Konala, our Jerk Chicken Bowl is packed with fresh pineapple, red cabbage, and 43g of protein.
QDOBA Chicken Protein Bowl vs. Konala Burrito Bowl
If you’re in the mood for fast-casual Mexican food, QDOBA offers a Double Chicken Protein Bowl with 59g of protein.
Or you could head over to Konala for a Chicken Burrito Bowl overflowing with pepperjack cheese, tortilla strips, cowboy caviar, avocado, jalapeno ranch, and 60g of protein.
KFC Classic Chicken Sandwich vs. Konala Greek Bowl
KFC is another high protein fast food chain a lot of people enjoy, because of their variety of fried chicken options. The Classic Chicken Sandwich has 34g of protein, and some people compare it to a Chick-fil-a sandwich.
While we don’t pack our protein between any sandwich buns, we do offer a wide array of choices for meats, bases, and flavors. Our Greek Bowl is made with mouth-watering tri-tip and comes with 41g of protein.
Taco Bell Power Menu Bowl vs. Konala Honey Sriracha Bowl
While Taco Bell mainly focuses on burritos and tacos, they also have a few high protein fast food items on their menu as well. The Power Menu Bowl with chicken for example contains 26g of protein.
We might be biased, but we prefer the Honey Sriracha Bowl at Konala. Paired with cucumber salad, this sweet and savory bowl has 42g of protein.
Del Taco Queso Loaded Nachos with Carne Asada Steak vs. Konala Teriyaki Chicken Bowl
Another American-Mexican fast food chain on our list was Del Taco. Their Queso Loaded Nachos with Carne Asada Steak has 43g of protein (and 47g of fat with 970 calories).
Our Teryaki Chicken Bowl has 47g of protein (with 14g of fat and 463 calories). We love the roasted broccoli and carrots with this delicious chicken option
Overall, Konala has almost every fast food chain beat when it comes to protein power. While a lot of major fast food restaurants offer beef and chicken options with a lot of protein, none of them compare to the fresh, nutritious value found here.
