Eat This, Not That: Jimmy John’sPosted: March 31, 2010
Subs can be awfully deceiving. Nothing wrong with a turkey sandwich, right?
Unfortunately it is not that easy, and it is too easy to walk into a sub restaurant and think that every option is a good one. Take these two subs from Jimmy John’s for example:
- turkey breast slim sub with alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes, onion, cucumber and avocado spread (426 cal, 2 g fat)
- turkey tom with alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes, lettuce and mayo (555 cal, 26 g fat)
You may wonder what the difference is – they look pretty similar, right? Well the first sub swaps out the mayo for the avocado spread, which will still give it that creamy flavor without all of the fat of the mayo. It also adds some extra vegetables which is always a good thing. Try it out, I promise you won’t miss the mayo!
