    Say, I want to buy a (very) healthy meal when I am out and have no access to a kitchen. What should I buy? It has to be cheaper than a Subway Ft long, and gives the same fulfillment.

    Appreciate the help, really! icon_smile.gif

    Subway's a pretty tough act to follow, especially when you consider the price and nutritional content, which can be made even better by avoiding fatty sauces and hi-sodium meats a/o cheeses. But, for more, Panera Bread does a good job in the nutritional quality department, and their new Broth Bowls are actually pretty good. At the other end of the scale, my personal, lifelong favorite:

    You can always try limiting yourself to a Subway 6". And watch what you get on it.

    Don't know what Subways in the UK offer, if that's your location, but no mayonnaise or creamy dressing, olive oil is OK if they use it (as opposed to vegetable oil), get only sliced whole meats, no processed (nix the salami or pepperoni). Get it on whole wheat, not white. Some lettuce & tomato will help with the vegetable component, and avoid any sides like potato chips or fries. Lay off the sugary drinks (even diet isn't so great). Go with iced tea (if Brits are allowed to serve that).

    If this is your lunch I'd think a 6" would be adequate, less expensive and fairly nutritious. Or buy the foot-long if you can save the other half for later, or split with a friend, and I often do with my husband. Here in the States I like their Club, Turkey, or Turkey & Ham. But without the peppers, or I'll be belching in everyone's face. icon_redface.gif
