Blog Diet Staple Redux: Subway’s Veggie Delight on Wheat

Ah, Subway.  The House that Jared Built.  When you just don’t know what to eat in my opinion you can’t veer too far off the Blog Diet Path if you choose to enter the hallowed halls of Subway.

For some reason the Subway Veggie Max / Garden Burger post is pretty popular.  I guess people are hungry for any info on that particular sandwich. (Hungry, get it.  Yeah, Lame.)

Lately though I’ve been eschewing the Veggie Max for the just as filling veggie delight.  Why?  Well, it’s less expensive.  It has fewer calories (525 vs. 780).  It tastes pretty OK.  And, since Agent Merlot brought it up, it conforms more or less to the Michael Pollan food philosophy of “eat what you can recognise.”

I have no idea what a veggie burger is other than a mash of vegetables and mushrooms with some sort of binder ingredient.  So, the Blog Diet Staple has gotten altered a bit.

Drop the burger from the veggie and add a “Delight.” What you’ve got is a salad in sandwich form.  You can’t go wrong with that.  (It’s pretty filling and it’s also a “$5.00 foot long.”)


Blog Diet Staple: Subway’s Veggie Max (formerly GardenBurger) on Wheat

The Subway Veggie Max

The Veggie Max. Its more than just lettuce and less than a BMT. It’s the compromise food solution. And it’s actually pretty good and very filling.

The consensus seems to be that a 6″ Veggie Max has around 390 calories. All I know is that it has to be better for you than the cold cut combo. And way better than a Big Mac.

And it’s great with Tabasco Brand pepper sauce.

So if you’re hungry and don’t know what to eat, you might want to eat this. Or, you could just eat a salad.
