What you put in or on your burrito, sub, smoothie, latte, pizza, bagel, or plate of fast-Chinese food matters. Here are a few examples of how to slash the calories and boost the nutrients. Talk about a win-win.
At Panera, a (partly) Whole Grain Bagel and cream cheese (520 calories) plus a 16 oz. Caramel Latte with no whip or caramel drizzle (320) means 840 calories for breakfast.
Instead, order an Avocado, Egg White & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich on a (partly whole grain) Sprouted Grain Bagel Flat (320 calories without cheese) plus a Latte with skim milk (100).
Voilà! You jettison half the calories, three-quarters of a day’s saturated fat, an estimated 6½ teaspoons of added sugar, and 340 milligrams of sodium. And you gain a few leafy greens and some healthy (unsaturated) fat in the avocado.
