Can I Really eat a Sandwich at Subway?

“Fitt” foods from TheFittChick
Subway is really trying to set itself apart from other fast food options by offering healthier options. The trouble is, most people are still getting way to many carbohydrates and not enough protein with each visit to Subway.

Their healthiest sandwich is the turkey on wheat. This sandwich has 46 grams of carbs and only 8 grams of protein coming from the turkey. Calories are not the only important part of each of your meals, its the breakdown of protein, carbs, and fat that really means the most.

When TheFittChick hits Subway my sandwich has 16 grams of protein and 24 carbohydrates from the bread. Want to know how I get there? Here’s the trick…order double turkey, only eat half the bread (or bring your own like I do), and use as many healthy veggies as possible! Unlimited mustard is FittChick “approved” as is the spices and vinegar. Try and stay away from oil, cheese and mayo as much as possible, and enjoy!

**If you live in the Chicagoland area…my favorite roll is from “Z best” bakery, and only has 80 calories, 0 fat, and 24 carbs.
