I eat Jersey Mikes... often. Like a few times a week. The Sandwich Makers and I chat and they know what I'm ordering before I even have to say it. I know, it's sad. It means I spend way too much money, time... and calories in this sub shop!
The owner here is also a nutritionist so I asked him last week what I should get instead of mayo (knowing he was going to tell me oil & vinegar) and that's exactly what he did. So, today at lunch I decided to try it out. When I watch them put on the oil & vinegar it frightens me! I have watched other people order it for such a long time and I think to myself "their sandwich must be dripping when they eat it. gross." I made my Sandwich Maker friends aware that I did not want my sandwich dripping in oil so to only add a "touch". I must say, it was pretty tasty. And I feel alot better eating oil & vinegar vs. full fat mayo which has way more "bad" fat.
Since I changed my condiments I needed to figure up the new nutritional facts to put in my food journal. That's when I find out the bad news. I have been couting my normal #7 on Wheat totally wrong. Like 250 calories wrong. UH, rewind. Go back to the top of this post where I told you that I eat this several times a week. So, that means that I am mis-calculating 3-4 meals per week by 250 calories. No stinkin' wonder the scale isn't moving! I am so ticked! I'm glad I figured this out, but you bet I am NOT going to be visiting my boys at Jersey Mikes as often anymore. Just another reminder that I really really need to be a better meal planner, cook, etc. If I cook my meals I am more aware of the calories and there won't be any surprises like this. Oh well. It could be worse. I could have eaten a fast food cheeseburger. YUCK.
