Nowadays people are busier than ever and it's hard to have a home-cooked meal from time to time. Due to time crunches, meetings, and deadlines, many people opt to grab food while on the go. What if you could have some fast food that has some healthy options? You're in luck. Forbes has released the 10 healthiest fast food restaurants and Massachusetts has several locations throughout the state.
