11 Cheap Restaurant Deals That Are Healthy

5) Subway 6-inch

Everyone knows Subway Jared and his successful weight-loss story. He’s been the Subway spokesperson for years. However, Jared isn’t just a fluffy advertising scheme. There’s something to Subway’s claim that eating their sandwiches can help you lose weight. They have also remained so reasonably priced that eating Subway everyday (like Jared) is actually financially sustainable. A 6-inch sandwich at Subway runs under $5. If you pick the right combination of ingredients it will also run you 350 calories or less. The Turkey Breast sub is the healthiest option with just 280 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, and 1 gram of saturated fat. The Subway Club, Oven-Roasted Chicken, and Roast Beef are all 350 calories or less with just 1.5 grams of saturated fat. Remember, all this is counter-acted if you ask for mayonnaise or another creamy sauce. Instead, go for one of the fat-free options; mustard, vinegar, or sweet onion.


6) Wendy’s Sandwiches & Side Menu

This is one of the few fast food chains that you can eat at and feel good about it. The great thing about Wendy’s is that you’re not limited to just one healthy option on the menu. There are several ways to eat at Wendy’s without overdoing it on the calories. This restaurant is also notoriously cheap, making it a great choice for road-trip food or when you need to grab a quick bite out. Try the Grilled Chicken Sandwich which has 370 calories and 10 grams of fat. It’s also got a healthy 3 grams of fiber to help keep you feeling full. To round out the meal, add a small bowl of chili for just 170 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 4 more grams of fiber, plus a low-calorie side salad. Got a sweet tooth? Go ahead, a Junior Frosty is just 190 calories.
