Q: Is Subway a healthy place to eat on a regular basis?
A: Subway focuses on low-fat menu items, and that’s where their edge ends. People eat there because it’s cheap and convenient, but the ingredients are not the highest quality, and not all of the menu items are low in fat content (their cookies are delicious). My suggestion, if you do go there, is to get the “Veggie Delite” on any of the breads since none of them are really whole grain (my favorite is Honey Oat) along with low-calorie dressing. You’ll need to tell them to add extra vegetables, because I’m convinced that they’re trained to skimp on the ingredients. Better yet, go to your neighborhood grocer or farmer’s market and get a fresh fruit bowl, fruit, or a basic vegetable salad with added protein. Simple is healthy.
