Spicing up a grilled cheese is easier than you think, and this recipe is proof. We combine sweet apples, crispy smoked bacon, and sharp cheddar cheese for a truly delicious take on the sandwich that just so happens to contain less than half the calories of most of the other grilled cheeses out there. There is nothing good for you in that lineup, so we put a healthy twist on the classic sandwich, upgrading the ingredients to a lean flank steak, a whole-wheat roll, and a yogurt-based blue cheese sauce.
You probably know Elvis Presley mostly for his hip-shaking and hit songs, but he also had some interesting eating habits. Our version, though, is considerably more modest than the one he apparently indulged in often. Like all of our recipes, this one is low in calories and yes, still healthy for you. And the upside to the open-face style of sammy is that you end up saving yourself a bunch of empty calories by ditching half of the bread.
Our panini recipe keeps things simple with pesto, fresh mozzarella, and a layer of lean white meat chicken. You get all the flavor and a nice crunch to your sandwich for a fraction of the calories. But as you most likely know, it comes at a price—a lot of calories. You might expect to see a smoked salmon on top of a bagel , but we ditch all that extra bread for whole wheat toast, saving you calories and adding in a boost of fiber, too.
This recipe still features the classic add-ons of this New York City favorite, though: onion, capers, and tomato, along with the salmon. I got the exact same sandwich for lunch, substituting carved turkey for rotisserie chicken.
But it wouldn't hold together — as I picked it up, it immediately fell apart, scattering chicken and veggies. The bread was crumbly and maybe even a bit stale. It was, once again, a fine sandwich, but not something I enjoyed eating. At this point, I had visited Subway eight times, so the smell of Subway locations was starting to infect my brain. I sat and ate my sandwich inside this location, which I normally don't do, so I got a good whiff of the bready aroma.
From the very first day, it has been a smell that makes me lose my appetite — something that only grew worse with time. Still on my sweet-onion kick, I got spinach with onions, tomatoes, cucumber, carved turkey, croutons, and sweet-onion dressing. What you see is what you get with this one — the ingredients didn't mix together particularly well, and everything just tasted kind of wet. Sweetgreen it was not. I ate the salad as quickly as possible, but the overwhelming taste of onion remained.
Even after eating a piece of toast, an orange, a scoop of chocolate ice cream, and brushing my teeth twice, the onion flavor lingered.
It was passable — the teriyaki did add a little flavor to the sandwich. However, at this point I was so burnt out by Subway, there was little the chain could do to redeem itself. Best overall sandwich: carved turkey, provolone, lettuce, pickles, banana peppers, and cucumbers on nine-grain wheat bread, with sweet-onion dressing. True, many of Subway's sandwiches are low-calorie options, and customers can pack in protein and vegetables.
But calories are just one part of nutrition. Subway's sandwiches are high in sodium.
Replace the mayonnaise, tartar sauce, sour cream, ranch dressing or guacamole in sandwiches with mustard or salsa. Keep healthy munchies in your glove compartment. Blimpie Turkey and Provolone Sub. Skip the chips and cookies and have a green salad with light nonfat dressing such as a vinaigrette or a light soup. You'll use this diary again for step three. Put your weight loss past to rest
My favorite, the carved-turkey sandwich, reportedly has mg, a little over one-third of the recommended 2, mg daily. The real problem, though, is that I never felt healthy after finishing a meal. Despite the company's "Eat Fresh" motto,consuming a sandwich made with ingredients like floppy eggs and mostly tasteless veggies never feels half as fresh as something like a salad from Sweetgreen, where flavorful and often local ingredients are front and center. The chain is making some genuinely positive changes, such as introducing carved turkey, which debuted in April and quickly became my favorite protein at the chain.
Even with new options, however, the chain didn't have enough variety or flavor to keep me interested all week. By Day 2, I was exhausted by the sameness of every seemingly interchangeable sandwich. After a week of eating Subway twice a day, I agree.
Ultimately, the sandwich chain has failed to stay fresh — something it needs to fix if it ever wants to truly be the leading destination for healthy fast food.
