Healthy Fast Food on the Go {Subway Tuscan Chicken Melt and a Giveaway!}

by Cate on October 15, 2012

Subway
Fifth grade soccer means one weeknight practice night. And one weeknight game night. And then Madeline’s team has one weeknight practice. And we have the occasional scout meeting or event. Or doctor’s appointment. Or, you know, life. Most soccer nights mean we don’t get back home until 7:30. Ish. And there’s a mad dash for finishing up homework bits and bobs. And baths and showers. And storybook reading. And bed.

And well, we relish those we-don’t-have-anywhere-to-be nights to the moon and back.

On soccer nights, it usually means a simple meal. Soup. Or sandwiches. Or pasta. Or leftovers. Once in awhile, it’s take-out. And Subway.

Subway is a little like fast food (in terms of the speed in which it gets into our mouths), but like, not. Because I’m of the mind that you can keep it healthy.

We choose whole wheat sub rolls. And when they ask what we want in our sub? We load up on the veggies. Big time. Crunchy bits of cucumber. Tomato slices. Spinach leaves. Not just me, but the kids too.

Fast food pretty much without the guilt. Just watch the cheese and dressings. So you don’t do yourself in.

We grabbed a Subway lunch to go before our road trip this past weekend. And because we weren’t done with soccer until after lunch, and were hitting the road right after, it was pretty perfect. Apple slices. Water bottles. Veggie-stuffed sandwiches. Truth.

This month, Subway is featuring their new Tuscan Chicken Melt sub sandwich. I got one last weekend, in between errands on a kid-free weekend, and Mystic’s daughter, Taylor, got one this weekend. But decidedly not so stuffed with veggies, because she’s slightly picky in that respect. #workinprogress

I really enjoy salads at Panera, especially their summer chicken, strawberry, poppyseed dressing salad…. ok, I realize that it is autumn and that salad is long gone till next year, but that’s my #1 favorite. :-)

Hummus sandwich, maybe with some avocado, with lots of veggies. I like a pretty sturdy bread (a scooped out bagel is good t00) since that helps keep the sandwich from getting soggy.

Love Subway! They’re actually one of my on-the-go healthy food choices. If not there, I’m usually ducking into a grocery store to hit their salad bar. I load up on veggies and diced chicken.
