Can You Order a Meal At Wendy’s That’s Under 1,200 Calories?
Do what tastes right.
FYI, on average a moderately active person needs about 2,000 to 2,800 calories per day. People who are less active or not active at all need even less — about 1,800 to 2,400 calories.
So take the quiz and see if your Wendy’s order comes out to less than 1,200 calories.
Lemon-Herb Shortbread Cookies
These surprisingly sophisticated cookies are made with less butter than traditional shortbread, and almond flour replaces some of the refined white flour for extra nutrients. Get a head start by making the dough up to a month ahead and freezing it. Serve these cookies on their own, or as part of a pretty post-dinner spread with fruit, nuts, and dark chocolate.
Pear Tarte Tatin
A little indulgence goes a long way in this luscious tarte. Our version has less butter and sugar than usual and instead relies on the pears’ juices to create a mouthwatering caramel sauce. Don’t be tempted to use Bartlett pears in this recipe, but Bosc will do in a pinch. The unsweetened whipped cream is perfect counterpoint to the caramelized fruit.
