Subway: Jared has it Right

For a few years now, we have been seeing ads for Subway, with their poster boy Jared talking about their healthy offerings. Well, he is right, the 6 Grams of Fat or Less menu is a healthy way to get fast food. Here’s a breakdown of the menu:

6 Grams of Fat or Less Subs
6″ Ham (Black Forrest w/o cheese) : 5 Points
6″ Oven Roasted Chicken Breast: 6 Points
6″ Roast Beef: 6 Points
6″ Subway Club: 6 Points
6″ Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki: 7 Points
6″ Turkey Breast: 5 Points
6″ Turkey Breast & Ham: 5 Points
6″ Veggie Delight: 4 Points

Looking at the menu, it’s easy to see that Subway is a great choice for fast food dieting. The key is not to miss the fine print. According to Subway’s nutrition site, these point values are based on the sub being on 6 inches of their 9-Grain Wheat Bread with lettuce, tomato, onions, and green peppers. Note the fact that these subs DO NOT include cheese, or any form of condiment. Don’t lose hope. Since the subs are so reasonably pointed, it won’t cripple you to get 1 slice of cheese, and add 2 Points to your overall sub value. Even an 8 Point sub is reasonable. If you’re like me, and can’t stand a dry sandwich, then there is the fat free honey mustard which you can ask for. It tastes great, and only adds about a point for a healthy serving. There you have it, a decent sized meal for a reasonable amount of points. You just need to let go of the foot long chicken bacon ranch sub, my own personal weakness.
