7 Surprisingly Healthy Menu Items at Dunkin’
From breakfast bowls to coffee, registered dietitian nutritionist Vicki Shanta Retelny found healthy Dunkin' menu items for everyone.
Egg White Bowl
With 250 calories and 14 grams of protein, a bowl of egg whites is a good way to fuel your body. Plus, according to Dunkin’, it contains no added sugar and a boost of potassium, which is a powerful mineral that does wonders for keeping blood pressure in check. (Psst! Here’s why they changed their name to Dunkin’.)
Veggie Egg White Sandwich on Multi-Grain Thin
It’s always a good time to fill up on fiber. This is an excellent source of fiber with 5 grams per sandwich. Tossing veggies into eggs makes for a protein-packed choice with 17 grams of good-quality protein, plus a moderate calorie count at 290 calories per sandwich. (This sandwich is also on our list of what to order for healthy fast food.)
Veggie Sausage Wake-Up Wrap
If you want the taste of meat in a vegetarian way, try this wrap made with plant-based sausage. For 210 calories, it’s more like a ‘snack wrap’ with 11 grams of protein and just about a serving of carbs—16 grams per wrap.
You want a sweet treat? Try this 60-calorie doughnut hole. It only has 6 grams of carbs and 2 grams of added sugar —that’s one-half of a teaspoon! Plus, the dusting of cinnamon may help control the sugar rush a bit, if you’re lucky. (Here’s how to get it delivered to your doorstep.)
Cappuccino with Skim Milk
This large cup of java offers a good dose of protein with 8 grams, as well as calcium with 300 mg (about a quarter of an adult’s daily recommended amount), and a potassium hit. Plus, it has zero grams of added sugar and is just 90 calories. See what other fast-food drinks are under 200 calories.
Plain Iced Coffee
Cool off with a large iced coffee. It has only 5 calories, zero fat and no added sugar. This unadulterated caffeine fix will give you bone-healthy minerals, potassium and calcium, too. This one is on our list of healthy Starbucks drinks, too.
