Food Find: Dunkin Donuts Flatbread Sandwiches

January 14, 2011

You read the headline correctly: I’m recommending food from a donut shop.

The DDSmart menu at Dunkin Donuts is chock full of healthy eating choices, including multigrain bagels, English muffin sandwiches, low-fat blueberry muffins, and lite beverages.

My current favorite DDSmart menu item is the Egg White Turkey Sausage Flatbread Sandwich.  The sandwich is made of an egg-white omelet with turkey sausage and spinach topped with reduced-fat cheddar cheese on multi-grain flatbread. One sandwich has 280 calories, 8 grams of fat, 19 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber.

The DDSmart menu also features an Egg White Veggie Sandwich, which is an egg-white omelet made with peppers, onions and mushrooms topped with reduced-fat cheddar on multi-grain flatbread. One sandwich has 280 calories, 10 grams of fat, 16 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber.

They’re both breakfast sandwiches, but are available all day every day. Of the two sandwiches, I prefer the turkey sausage version. It’s more flavorful and has slightly less fat.

My only quibble with the DDSmart menu is that it doesn’t offer a healthy side, like a fruit cup. It’s sandwiches, baked goods and coffee beverages. I like all of those things, but a healthy non-bread side item would be a great add-on.

In conjunction with their healthy menu options, Dunkin Donuts encourages physical activity by presenting a couch to 5K training program and helping runners find 5K events in their communities. Brings a whole new context to the tagline “America Runs on Dunkin.”

You’ve got to check out Dunkin Donuts’s DDSmart menu. Just, um,don’t go crazy with the donuts.
