Fast food restaurants are not doing business as well as they used to about a decade ago. The reason for this is that the food which they serve has no nutritional value whatsoever. This was OK a few years ago but these days more and more people are getting health conscious. The obesity rates are through the roof and more and more studies are giving definitive proof of a number of diseases that are connected to and caused by obesity. That is the reason why fast food chains all over have had to change their menus considerably and make their food more nutritious without cancelling out the taste factor. This rising awareness has also lead to the mushrooming of health food chains too. One such restaurant that couples great taste and health is Subway.
Subway is a chain of restaurants that serves different types of subs and sandwiches. These are low fat and extremely nutritious. At a Subway you have many different kinds of sandwich fillings that you can choose from. In fact you can get the sandwiches made to your specifications. This is the USP (Unique Selling Point) of this joint that has made it so popular. When you walk into a Subway you have to make 4 choices. The first choice is concerning the kind of sandwich you want. Next you have to choose the bread you want to make your sandwich out of. You have a choice between Whole Grain, Wheat, Honey Oat and Parmesan Oregano. Most franchises have their own selections that are usually added to these 4. Every loaf is freshly baked in the franchise itself. Once you have chosen your bread the meat filling is added. This filling is consistent with the type you ordered. Next you are given a choice of a number of different fresh vegetables. Last comes the sauces. There are number of different sauces that you can choose from. You can even ask your server which are the sauces that are low in calories.
Every sandwich is rich with taste and yet low in calories. It is one of the best choices when it comes to fast food. There are people who have even taken the subway challenge and lost a lot of weight. The menu also has a nutrition chart and a calorie break-up chart so that you can make a more informed choice as to what you want to eat and how many calories you want to consume.
