Fast food is seductive; it comes in large quantities, cheap prices and delicious aromas and tastes. However, that bang for your buck can explode your diet and get you off track. Sometimes fast food can't be avoided, but the massive amounts of calories that frequently come with it can be. Check out our Quiznos menu under 500 calories.
Turkey Lite Sub: This tasty lunch option is served on artisan wheat bread and comes with turkey, lettuce, tomato, onion, cucumber and fat-free balsamic vinaigrette. At 320 calories, you won't feel guilty about going out to lunch!
Peppercorn Chicken Caesar Salad, hold the Caesar: A small Peppercorn Caesar Salad comes out to only 90 calories without the Peppercorn Caesar dressing. If lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, croutons and chicken doesn't sound good to you without the dressing, swap the 310-calorie fatty Peppercorn Caesar dressing for the low-fat balsamic vinaigrette for 80 calories. (But that extra 80 calories will put you 55 calories over our 500 limit, so beware! Or you could pass on the upcoming chicken noodle soup to stay under 500 calories.)
