Healthy Dining Restaurant of the Month: Schlotzsky’s

Just because you’re busy, doesn’t mean you have to give up good and good-for-you food. Schlotzsky’s proves that you can have fast, healthy and mouthwatering food all in one with a variety of sandwiches, salads, wraps, soups, pizza and sides featured on!

The Schlotzsky’s menu has grown and changed since the restaurant first opened back in 1971, but the commitment to high quality ingredients that your taste buds crave has always been at the core of the Schlotzsky’s philosophy. Today, you can find more than 350 Schlotzsky’s locations in 35 states.

Do you prefer a classic deli choice for a healthy dinner or lunch? Try Schlotzsky’s Smoked Turkey Breast Sandwich with tender and juicy smoked turkey breast, light mayo, lettuce and tomato on Schlotzsky’s signature toasted sourdough bun. A small size has just 330 calories and 5 grams of fat and includes 19 grams of protein to keep you on track throughout the day.

Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich

To spice up your diet, order the Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich (the small size has 450 calories and 14 grams fat) with thinly sliced, roasted chicken breast paired with green chilies, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, green onions, lettuce and spicy fat-free ranch dressing on a toasted jalapeno cheese bun. Be prepared: This sandwich may cause your taste buds to tango. (Available at select locations)



Cranberry Apple Pecan and Chicken Salad

Salad lovers rejoice in the crispy and fresh flavors on the Schlotzsky’s menu. The Cranberry Apple Pecan and Chicken Salad is a mix of field greens, goat cheese, pecans, dried cranberries, apple wedges, red onion, garlic focaccia croutons and grilled chicken strips for a satisfying blend of flavors and textures... plus two cups of fruits and veggies (low in calories, high in nutrition and diet-friendly fiber) and healthy fats.  When you skip the dressing and breadsticks, this dietitian pick has 640 calories and 27 grams of fat!



Fresh Veggie Pizza

The Schlotzsky’s menu has a little something for everyone. When a sandwich or salad just won’t cut it, try the Fresh Veggie Pizza.

It’s loaded with mozzarella cheese, basil pesto, Portobello mushrooms, bell pepper, red onion, black olives and tomato on a seasoned Sourdough crust. Can you say yum? This is such a popular choice that Schlotzsky’s even shared its top secret restaurant recipe so you can make your own Fresh Veggie Pizza at home.
