Veggie Cravings…

I hurried out of the house today and only had time to grab some sliced turkey and provolone for lunch. My coworker had a bowl of homemade hummus that smelled delicious and it made me start craving veggies! So, I decided to run down to Quizno’s and get a small chopped salad. What a great deal!

They have several of their small chopped salads that are on the 2 for $5 menu. I didn’t want two, so I just got one and it ended up being $3.12 with tax. But I don’t know why they call it small. It was the perfect size! And it doesn’t come with the flatbread, so you don’t have to worry about the extra carbs. I ordered without the cheese and got extra veggies (red onion, black olives, banana peppers). Quizno’s must be trying to compete with Subway now, because they let you add extra veggies to your salads and subs at the end for no charge. It also comes with guacamole, salsa, and a side of chipotle dressing. I only used about 1 tsp. of the 2 Tbsp. serving of dressing (to cut calories).

All in all, I spent $3 for less than 300 calories and a satisfied belly. It really was delicious! I forgot to take a picture before diving in, so you’ll have to imagine my add-ins on the picture from the Quizno’s website. Yum! Click the picture below to be directed to their site.

On a general side note, do watch the nutritional facts at Quizno’s. Check out their “Under 500 calories” menu and watch the mayo, cheese, and dressings they like to add. The good thing about Quizno’s is they’re consistent. They weigh the meat, so you get the same amount every time. And you can choose warm or cold subs too. Just because the word “salad” is in the title does NOT mean it’s healthy, so check the facts, and eat smart. Bon Appetit!
