Quick Bites: McAlister’s Deli

McAlister’s Deli is up next for our continued Quick Bites series! This chain, found across the U.S., has a variety of menu options. But, don’t let the word ‘deli’ in the name trick you, as there are quite a few options on the menu that should be avoided! The ‘choose 2’ menu option is an easy way to have 2 smaller portions of items to make up a healthier meal. For instance, you could have a ‘choose 2 meal’ of the deli turkey sandwich and cup of Fire Roasted Vegetable soup for a meal under 300 calories and 1 gram saturated fat. But, as we have learned, it is important to review the nutritional facts of any dining establishment before eating there. In this case, it would be easy to pick a ‘choose 2 meal’ containing over 1,000 calories just by choosing the smaller portion of the muffuletta! I have broken down menu items to choose and those to avoid, but as always, there are menu items that may be acceptable that I have not discussed. For a breakdown of what nutrients we look at, take a look at our original Quick Bites post on Chick-fil-a.
