Health Tip: A Trip to the Sandwich Shop Can Be Healthy

If you make these substitutions

(HealthDay News) -- A trip to the sandwich shop is a great choice for a healthy meal on the go, assuming you make the right menu choices.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:

  • Ask for condiments on the side, so you can control how much you use.
  • Skip the cheese altogether, or ask for low-fat cheese.
  • Pair your sandwich with a salad or fruit, instead of a bag of chips.
  • Fill your sandwich with lean cuts of turkey, chicken, ham or beef.
  • Opt for a veggie sandwich, or pile a meat sandwich with lots of veggies.
  • Choose a whole-grain wrap or whole-grain bread, instead of white bread.
