To help you make healthy choices when you're out & about, here are a few AAY! approved meal options from Starbucks and Subway. Because you'll find these two restaurants in almost any city, you can run in for a quick, healthy meal on the go...as long as you know what to look for!
Here are AAY! Nutritionist Narina's top choices:
1. Whole Grain Oatmeal (280 kcal)
For a delicious, high-fiber breakfast, try the blueberry oatmeal. Ask for the nut medley (from the other bag) for protein, but forgo all other toppings. The fresh blueberries are so plump & sweet that you won't need honey or brown sugar.
2. Egg White, Spinach, Feta Wrap (290 kcal)
This wrap will keep you full for hours with its balance of filling protein from the egg whites, whole grains from the wheat wrap and a full serving of vegetables.
3. Protein Bistro Box (380 kcal)
The combination of fresh fruit (apple slices & grapes), whole grain (muesli bread) and protein (cage-free egg, cheddar cheese and peanut butter) will help you beat the daily slump without reaching for the pastry platter.
4. Egg White & Red Pepper Sous Vide Bites (170 kcal)
This simple grab-and-go breakfast or snack is healthy, delicious and high in protein.
5. Seasoned Turkey & Green Pepper Pico (390 kcal)
Packed with a colorful array of veggies, this flavorful salad will fill you up and provide plenty of fiber, vitamins and protein. We recommend using only half the dressing to reduce the sodium.
6” Veggie Delite With Avocado (348 kcal)
On whole grain wheat with spinach, tomato, cucumber, onion, bell peppers, black olives, jalapeño slices, avocado, vinegar and fresh cilantro or dried oregano.
The avocado not only tastes great and makes the sandwich more substantial, it also adds healthful unsaturated fats. Because the vinegar makes the bread moist and the jalapeño slices add flavor, you won't need oil or dressing. But if you want more sauce, add mustard.
