Subway Sub of the Month – Turkey Breast and Black Forest Ham

This month, instead of having to decide between a Turkey foot-long or a Black Forest Ham foot-long, you can enjoy both and not even have to pay any extra for it.

The Subway $5 Featured Foot-Long for September 2011 is Turkey Breast and Black Forest Ham. This Fresh Fit sub comes on the heels of the newly added  Fresh Fit sub, the Oven Crisp Chicken.

The first sub of the month to clock in at under 600 calories as foot-long (without cheese) is a wonderful lunch for anyone trying to watch their waistline.  I know I took a well-deserved break from my Lean Cuisine and Healthy Choice meals to indulge on a 6″ version of this sandwich.

One can only have so many microwaved at-work meals day after day.  So I recommend finding a fellow hungry co-worker, taking a break to leave your office and running to your nearest Subway and enjoy lunch for two for only $5.  Comparing the nutritional information of a Lean Cuisine and this Turkey and Ham sub, you’ll see that they are fairly comparable.  So if you are ready to consider a sub with fresh veggies and extra flavor instead of the reheated frozen vegetables in the microwave meals, then this is the month to do it!

If you don’t find a co-worker to split the foot-long with, the sub falls well under 1/3 of the 2000-calorie diet anyway.

In the long run, I’m happy Subway has selected a Fresh Fit sub for their sub of the month.  It’s long overdue in my opinion.  Stay tuned for information on what will be coming to a Subway near you for October 2011.

One thought on “Subway Sub of the Month – Turkey Breast and Black Forest Ham

  1. Comparing the two according to the Weight Watchers Points Plus system, the Lean Cuisine comes in at 6 points while the sub is only 7. I think I could stand one more point for that yummy looking sandwich!!!
