Tip #1: Stick To Your Diet With Low Fat Options
If you’re hungry but don’t want to overindulge, choose a low-fat or low-carb bread such as whole grain or whole wheat. Use low calorie margarine or fat-free mayo, allowing the meats and cheeses to overpower your senses, not the spread, which is where most of your calories come from if you’re not careful. Select only lean cuts of meats, such as pork, ham, poultry and well-done beef. Use just one slice of cheese if you really love cheese, or go with two thin slices of the low fat variety. Incorporate plenty of vegetables into your sandwich, from tomatoes and onions to greens and peppers. Then top it all off with condiments such as pickles and mustard.
Tip #2: Ask for Custom Creations
When ordering a sandwich, panini or wrap at your local deli or sub shop, don’t be afraid to customize your order according to your diet, mood and budget. Why have just a grilled cheese sandwich when you could get ham and tomatoes on there, or even use a totally different type of cheese? Why not try your favorite sub toasted for a change?
Tip #3: Ask About Specials and Deals
Many sub shops have daily specials and deals designed to help you save money on your favorite sandwiches. Ask if there’s a rewards club you can obtain, or money saving coupon codes you can download online. Buy one get one free deals are always going on, it seems. Take advantage of these and eat with a friend.
