Low Carb on the Road: Subway Salads

image  I was heading to work today when I realized that I had forgotten my lunch. I stopped in to Subway and ordered a salad.

Subway will make any sandwich into a salad, so in the amount of time it takes to stand there and get a sandwich made, you can get something without bread, instead. They offer two types, a regular salad with your stuff piled on and a chopped salad, where they put everything in a bowl and cut it up to bits with special knife. I prefer the former, while Mr. Incredible likes the latter. I read online that a good chopped salad has little bits of everything in every bite.

Tonight, I got a double meat BMT salad with vinegar and oil and S&P.  It wasn’t cheap, it was about eight bucks, but it was really filling.

So keep that in mind when you’re out and about, Subway is a good place to stop in for some quick, LC meals.

    I LOVE subway salads. They were may fail safe back in the early 80’s when I was on atkins and are now. You have always been able to get a salad instead of a sandwich – they were the one place that understood that not all people eat bread and they didn’t want to lose that audience.

    My go to (and I don’t like chopped salads), Shredded lettuce, tuna, american cheese, onion, pickles, vinegar, oil, and mayonnaise. I would eat at least one a day in the 80’s and now about 1 a week.
