Fast Food = Healthy

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Well I've been having back problems lately, and when I woke up this morning I was acutely aware that standing over stove was not going to happen. My back hurts so badly that I actually had to use a cane to walk around. But anyway, I needed a dinner "lunch" today since I was closing and my lunch was at 4:30. I weighed my options and threw a few pieces of fruit into my purse and headed to my local subway. Yes subway claims to have these low fat sandwiches, but only if you take off all the goodies, and get a 6" sub. Well I found a way that works a little better for me.
I buy the kids meal. It's a 4" sub, turkey, ham or veggie. I get my slice if cheese, I get my light mayo, and now they are working with the smithsonian to help the kids get excited about the museum by giving away a lunch bag (perfect bento sized bag) featuring an exibit piece from the museum.
My dinner "lunch"
A 4" turkey sub on 9 grain wheat, with American cheese, mayo (I said lite, they didn't hear it and squirted before I realized what happened) lettuce, tomato, pickles and olives.
A package of apples
A 12oz bottle of 1% milk

Total calories: 619

The mayo contributed a lot, and the milk. Removing them would have dropped the calories by 150. It was filling and fun. It's nice to get a kids meal, proper portions, and a fun toy! (or new lunch bag as it were)

On a side note I should never buy the milk. Tastey yes, but I think I may be lactose intolerant or something. My tummy is uber upset.

    yeah, the kids portions are more what I need, too!

    Thanks for the great idea. I didn't even know that Subway had kids meals. I'll remember that the next time I'm out and need a healthy meal alternative on short notice.
