Panera Bread- Where you can get a real meal, for under 300 calories!

7 May

Panera Bread is a dieters paradise, as far as healthy options are concerned.  Their “you pick 2” menu allows you to have some variety, and indulge in 2 different items without feeling guilty.  Of course, you can also go VERY wrong with this approach, but…  by visiting their website ahead of time, and checking out your options, you can really make some great decisions and not feel like you’ve been cheated on flavor.  Below are some of the great combos that i most often eat at Panera.  Add an apple for your “side” for only about 90 calories more!

First, a word about my 2 “go to” items when i want to have something a little naughtier from the “pick 2” menu.  Chicken Noodle soup, and the Classic Salad.  These 2 items are so calorie-friendly, that they allow me to really endulge in my second item.  Keep them in mind if you want to splurge on a calorie-packed sandwich.
