I Need Some Ideas on How to Make Healthier Choices at a Sandwich Shop.

If you are looking to make healthy choices, remember it’s okay to make requests. Here are a few tips for making healthy choices:

  • Ask for the sandwich spread on the side or apply it yourself if the shop offers condiment packets.
  • To cut back on the calories and fat, request low-fat, part-skim mozzarella or no cheese.
  • Instead of chips, ask for a piece of fruit or a salad. The extra fiber will fill you up so you will eat less.
  • Choose lean cuts of beef, ham, chicken or turkey for your sandwich.
  • Load up your sandwich with vegetables, or try a vegetarian option.
  • Choose whole-wheat bread or a whole-grain wrap instead of white bread.
