(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.
