Blimpie Vegetarian SandwichOrdering vegetarian food is usually a healthier option, but you can’t assume just because its meat-free that it doesn’t pack some calories or sodium.  The Blimpie Special Vegetarian 12″ sub is an example of a bad vegetarian food choice. It packs 1,180 calories (18 g saturated) and has a whopping 3,540 mg of sodium due to 3 kinds of cheeses and lots of oil.  You’d be better off eating 2 Big Macs.
