Blimpie’s subs made healthy

| February 08, 2013

Blimpie’s deli line-up offers an obvious alternative to greasy fast food meals. That’s not to say the sandwich eatery doesn’t know how to pack an unhealthy wallop of its own. It does, however, offer several of its popular sandwiches in a “lighter” fashion, often by getting rid of the cheese or sauce typically on the sandwich. These are the healthiest options of the seven “lighter” sandwiches available, all 6-inch subs.
