As part of their Eat This, Not That! feature, the editors at Men’s Health have compiled five lunches they claim are the best way to enjoy a fast food lunch that is both healthy and cheap.

Using an article from the print edition published earlier in the year, the magazine’s website suggests a combination of a side order, main entrée, and drink from five different quick-serve eateries in the United States, as well as lists an alternative lunch that’s comparably cheap, but drastically higher in either calories, grams of fat, or sodium.

The cheapest lunch suggested can be found at Taco Bell for $2.10.  Probably not surprisingly, the meal lowest in calories can be bought at Subway — a footlong, Oven Roasted Chicken Sandwich with yogurt and water totalling 405 calories.

All five meals can be found after the jump.
