I usually try to steer the kids and myself towards Subway when we're running around during the day on weekends but after reading THIS article - jeez louise - I see I need to do some better research on what to order!

Wow - usually I do order the sweet onion teriyaki but will have to rethink this!

When I'm on the go a sandwich is usually my first choice, but I only go to Subway if there is absolutely no other option within 5 miles. I find they're way to stingy with the produce and there is way too much bread. Grocery store deli's usually have really good sandwiches that are well balanced with the toppings.

Awww man - that is where i go for "healthy fast food" meals and I gotta admit that the sweet onion teriyaki is my fav. I think the shocking and alarming factor is that the ingredient count is so high for everything - banana peppers have 10 ingredients and the bread has over 30. Why do they do this to our food?

I will have to say that it makes eating out seem pointless... like we should all take our meals at home!

I agree Carrie. The only time I'm really in a rush for something like Subway is when I'm working at the gym, and I've not brought my dinner. We're pretty lucky for choices at work for lunches - we have a salad bar/grocers, and a 'Chopped Leaf' which is salads and rice bowls and soups that are delish!

That's great! It's tough to lose weight once you are develop those eating out habits. I know that's what kills me. Well that and the wine. Siiighhhh.
