So Subway is one of those places that is just considered healthy. But it’s so easy to go from healthy to unhealthy with just a few ingredients. But building a healthy, filling sandwich is easy if you know what to get!
First, stick with the six inch! Or if you want to get the footlong, eat half and save the other half for your next meal!
The 9 grain breads back a lot of fiber! 4-5 grams for a 6 inch sandwich. But the cheesy breads pack the calories and lack the amount of nutrients the 9 grain bread provides! And as for the flatbread, it adds extra calories and just doesn’t fill you up as much as the wheat ones will!
Tip: Another option if you are looking to avoid the carbs is to get your favorite sandwich is salad form! Do it for any sandwich on the menu!
For the meat, it’s kind of tricky. Some of them such as the grilled buffalo chicken or the tuna, it can seem healthy, but the sauce and the mayo in it is less than healthy. Turkey and grilled chicken will be your best bet if you want meat, but going all veggie is great too! Add in avocado and it’s filling and healthy!
Tip: Try to avoid the cheese. There are so many better options with sauces and veggies for flavor that cheese is just an unnecessary additive.
But seriously, eat all the veggies you want. They are all delicious and all fabulously healthy and good. My personal favorites are:
- Avocado (duh)
Tip: If you are looking to avoid sodium, skip the peppercines and olives.
My absolute FAVORITE is the southwest sauce. But I know it’s unhealthy. Typically I’ll order the oil and vinegar and then get just a very light topping of southwest sauce for flavor!
Tip: You can also get pepper on the sandwich if you like! I get A TON of cracked pepper and it makes the sub so good!
And there you have it! The best ways to make a Subway Sandwich. My typical order is usually the following:
- 6 inch 9-Grain Wheat Veggie Delite Toasted
- Oil & Vinegar
- Southwest sauce (light)
- LOTS of cracked pepper
