Reading the Labels – Part II

Eating at Subway because you think it’s healthier?  Well, generally you’re right however…if you’re like me and you get a rare craving for a Subway Tuna Sandwich (my friends are gasping at the notion of me eating fish!) you may want to think twice.  A 6" Subway Tuna sandwich has more calories and more fat in it than a Quarter Pounder with Cheese.  It does have less saturated fat, I’ll give you that, but not much.  And that’s only if you stick to the 6".  If you’re a big eater like me you probably order the foot-long and that means TWICE as much fat.
Moral of the story: Don’t assume that just because it’s at a healthy restaurant that everything on the menu is healthy.
That said, the Subway Turkey sandwich is a very healthy choice, especially if you leave off the cheese and mayo and load up on the vegetables.  There are even 18g of protein in the 6" Turkey.

    You should turn vegetarian. I know some great folks who are vegetarian. 😉
    Enjoy your Subway

    Yes, I know some delightful vegetarians too but I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to just eat carrots.  That said I love vegetables. Right alongside my steak. 😉
