If you are looking for a quick lunch or dinner, there are a couple of local eateries that help you make healthy choices by allowing you to look at the nutritional information of their offerings online.  See below for links to their websites.

Calculate the Nutrition of the meal before you order: Subway Nutrition Calculator.Subway is the first establishment to submit several menu items for consideration as Healthy Hanover Menu Choices. These menu choices must meet healthy standards similar to those recommended by the American Heart Association for low fat, low sodium, whole grain, and lean protein recipe content. Choose whole grain 6-inch subs with a lean protein such as turkey breast. Stack on the veggies and forgo the chips and soft drink.

Green Burritos:

The environment is important. Everyone knows that. We try to do our part. Every day. In little ways. It's not about being "green" (and certainly not about being Certified Green, which we are and which we are proud of, but is not the point). It's simply about using our restaurants to make our planet a better place. Today, it's corn cups and bamboo bowls. It's naturally-raised meats and organic tofu. It's composting and recycling and reusing building materials. Even the yawn-able stuff like LED lighting, low-flow waterheads, and Paperstone tabletops and countertops make a difference today. Tomorrow, who knows – the list will only grow. One thing that we do know, we'll be there. Quietly leading the pack and slowly blazing the trail. Doing our part to help the earth without making a big deal of it. One baby step at a time. One burrito at a time.
