Subway is a popular sub sandwich chain that offers many low-calorie and low-fat sandwiches and salads. With a menu dedicated to meal choices that contain six grams of fat or less, Subway has several healthy options. The restaurant chain also offers several different sandwich and salad toppings that include fresh vegetables and low-calorie ingredients. Browse the menu at Subway and take a look at their posted nutrition information to help guide you toward creating a healthy meal.
Peruse the under six grams of fat menu. Look for a variety of salads and sandwiches that include your favorite deli meats and ingredients.
Browse the soup menu for a variety of healthy choices. Consider the minestrone soup for only 90 calories or chicken noodle soup for only 100 calories and one gram of fat.
Order your sandwich on 9-grain wheat bread or hearty Italian bread. Whole wheat and Italian breads have fewer calories and fat grams than other bread options on the menu. To watch calories and fat, order a six-inch sandwich instead of a foot long.
Choose fresh vegetables as your sandwich or salad toppings rather than high-fat meats, such as bacon, and high fat condiments, such as mayonnaise. Select banana peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, tomato, green peppers and onions as healthy additions to your meal. Order American or Provolone cheese for the fewest number of calories and fat grams.
Choose your sides wisely. Consider healthier alternatives to potato chips, such as apple slices, baked potato chips, low-fat yogurt or raisins, all of which Subway includes on their menu.
