Posted by on May 8, 2018 in SuperFood Hunting Series

In Part 3 of my superfood hunting series, I recommend sandwiches from Subway.

About Subway

About Subway Sandwich

My favourite sandwich would be Honey Oat Bread with Tuna, dolphin-safe tuna blended with creamy mayonnaise to go with my favourite fresh vegetables and a little bit of honey mustard.

My own choice of vegetables below (though you can always choose to go for ALL):

  • Lettuce
  • Green Bell Pepper (Capsicum)
  • Onion
  • Cucumber
  • Avocado

Selling Price: $6.50 (including 1 scoop of avocado @ an additional $1)

5) Cucumber

Cucumbers are very rich in vitamins particularly B, C and K, and minerals like copper, potassium and manganese. The health benefits are amazing like anti-inflammatory; promote brain health, lower risks of breast, uterine, ovarian, and prostate cancers.

They are also high in fiber yet low in calories. The majority water content stored in cucumber makes it one of the best hydrating and cooling food too.

6) Avocado

The most incredibly nutritious food, which is particularly high in healthy fats. Similar to cucumbers, avocados are in vitamins like B5, B6, C, E, K, folate and potassium, though there are others in small amounts. People who eat avocados tend to be healthier due to the heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and powerful anti-oxidants found in them.

With all the health benefits I can find with Subway sandwiches, there is a better reason now for me to step into the Subway restaurant.
