Making Healthy Choices With Subway
It’s not always easy to make healthy choices when you’re away from home, especially when you’re in a hurry. It can be incredibly frustrating when someone like me (who is constantly striving for a healthier lifestyle) has little option when eating on the fly. Usually when I’m away from home and don’t have something planned ahead of time; it’s safe to say that I’m either on a road trip or shopping. Thankfully there is always a Subway chain around for me to make smarter decisions.
It’s hard to find a food court, airport or shopping common without a Subway. The restaurant has been my safety net for the last few years now and locally a few more have opened up on the highway to my home town. It’s common for me to have a protein bar or some turkey jerky in my purse to tie me over but sometimes a person needs a meal on the go. Subway has a lot of smart choices, and often enough a 6″ is just enough (just load it with veggies).
Before my son was born, I worked at a popular Canadian furniture store and it was pretty rare I brought a lunch. Even though Subway was across town, I would make the extra effort to get my sandwich of choice: 6″ Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki on whole wheat with a little bit of light mayo and loads of lettuce and green pepper. It was incredibly satisfying and it (along with a coffee at 4:30) would keep be going for the rest of the day without endless snacking. I was able to maintain a steady weight during that time and I’m sure having a healthy take out option helped a lot.
Not everyone has a Subway next door (or even across the street) from their place of work, that’s why I’m excited to let you in on something: Subway now offers cheap catering in Toronto. How convenient is that? Just round up the office together and order catering once a week, split the cost and lunch is done (without the guilt). Subway catering is also a great option for birthday parties, retirement parties and any other reason to celebrate. Why not give it a go?
Would you use Subway catering? If so, what kind of event would you hire them for?
