In 1983, 19-year-old Jimmy John Liautaud decided to make some sandwiches. After teaching himself to bake bread, perfecting the bread-to-filling ratio, and testing his sandwiches out on family members, he knew he had a winner on his hands. So he took to the streets with armfuls of cheap sandwiches, gathered a huge following, and finally opened up shop in an Illinois garage: Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches. Now, 30 years later, Jimmy John’s company has grown to more than 1500 locations in 41 states, and the sandwiches are as delicious as ever.

Business has been booming, but Jimmy John’s takes most of its pride in its freshly baked bread, freshly sliced meats and veggies (with no additives or fillers), large sizes, and low prices. The menu consists of 6 different 8” sandwiches, 11 different “giant “club sandwiches, a low carb lettuce wrap (the J.J. Unwich), and this week’s sandwich of the week, the massive J.J. Gargantuan.

Although Jimmy John was the brains behind the operation, it was Jimmy John’s brother, Huey, who came up with the idea for the J.J. Gargantuan. This sandwich is “huge enough to feed the hungriest of all humans” (so their menu states) with Genoa salami, sliced smoked ham, capicola, roast beef, turkey, and provolone cheese piled onto a homemade French bun and smothered with onions, mayo, lettuce, tomato, and Jimmy John’s homemade Italian dressing.

If you can even fit the sandwich into your mouth, you’ll find that the meats and cheese join together into a salty, cheesy, smoky, sweet, and hearty flavor bomb. It’s an Italian sandwich fit for a king, or at least one very hungry person.


Does Freaky Fast Mean Freaky Good? The Jimmy John’s Menu

At age 19, Jimmy John Liautaud didn’t look like he had much going for himself, having graduated high school second-to-last in his class. In 1983, his father gave him two choices for what to do with his life – either join the military or start a business. He chose to go the business route, accepting a $25,000 loan from his father to get started, with Jimmy John owning 52% of the business and his father 48%.

After exploring the idea of starting a hot dog business, the expenses made him switch to sandwiches instead. He rented out an old garage for $200/month and outfitted it with what little used equipment he could afford – a refrigerator, chest freezer, meat slicer and oven. He took the time to really perfect his bread recipe and took advantage of being near Eastern Illinois University and its many hungry college students.

Ten years later, he started franchising the business and now has nearly 2,000 locations around the country, with hundreds more in development. His business model is clearly working, but what about the Jimmy John’s menu from the customer perspective?


Quite similar to the Turkey Tom, but adding the avocado spread. Oh do betches love their avocados! You get the Beach Club when you are feeling hungrier because this is quite the large sandwich, but you can still believe it to be 'healthy'. You are probably straight out of California and live by a beach a.k.a. this is the perfect sandwich for you!

You might be a vegetarian, you also might just think that this is the comparable middle-ground of ordering a salad and not being in a food coma. In the end, you are still eating a salad in a sandwich.

Adding some spice to the eatery scene

El Que, pronounced “el kay,” is a play on the name of big sister restaurant The Elk Public House. It is tucked in behind its namesake in Browne’s Addition in a space formerly home to Cabin Coffee on Cannon Street, with room for 35 people.

Grollmus and partners own The Elk and The Two Seven Public House in Spokane, Moon Time in Coeur d’Alene and The Porch Public House in Hayden Lake.

Tacos and banana-leaf-wrapped tamales are menu mainstays. Tamales wrapped with banana leaves, rather than the more common corn husk tamales, get a different infusion of flavor.

El Que is also experimenting with its own hot sauces. There’s a daily sopa de tortilla, or tortilla soup.

Grollmus says the infused tequilas and cocktails made from those concoctions have been well-received by customers.

“We’ve tried it couple of times before, but we’ve been having really good luck with these,” he says.

Restaurant general manager Marshall Powell says they plan to keep a regular slate of infused tequilas on hand, including beet pineapple, vanilla and brown sugar orange and cinnamon and pineapple habanero.

Beet? “It’s one of those things that people either love or they hate it,” Powell says.

Some of the infusions take much of the signature “bite” out of the tequila, while enhancing its flavor. Of course, they’re adding a different kind of bite with infusions that include habanero, poblano and other chilies, both fresh and roasted.

Getting the tequilas just right has taken some trial and error. Some have been too spicy. Powell says he’s afraid to take the lid off the tequila infusing with a ghost pepper right now the handwritten label for the creation features a skull and crossbones.

El Que employees are experimenting with other flavors. Powell says servers get a fifth of tequila a week to use. There have been attempts with huckleberries, lemongrass, raisin, basil and cucumber, cilantro and lime, to name a few.

The mason jars with the experiments line some of the shelves at El Que. The tequilas take on the flavors of the ingredients stuffed inside, as well as some of the colors.

El Que is open 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. daily. The kitchen closes an hour later than The Elk that’s 11 p.m. most days and midnight on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Grollmus says they’re still considering if and when the restaurant will open for lunch

El Que can be reached at (509) 624-5412.

Jimmy John’s opens

The rapidly expanding Midwest-based Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches has made its Eastern Washington debut.

Rick and Kathy Rocca opened a franchise in downtown Spokane just before the holidays. The sub shop is at 601 W. Main Ave., near Main and Wall, next door to Thomas Hammer and across the street from Madeleine’s.

Rocca says he and his wife first discovered the franchise and its sandwiches when they lived in Madison, Wis., for five years. They plan to open a second Jimmy John’s shop in the spring near Ruby and Mission.

Everything for Jimmy John’s sandwiches is prepared fresh every day, including house-baked breads and freshly sliced meats and vegetables.

“We are just obsessed with fresh,” Rocca says.

The franchise also touts quick service and decent prices. In Spokane, an 8-inch sub is $4.75. The giant club sandwiches are $5.75.

The most expensive sandwich on the menu – the J.J. Gargantuan, which includes genoa salami, sliced smoked ham, capicola, roast beef, turkey and provolone topped with onions, mayo, lettuce, tomato and homemade Italian dressing – is $7.75.

The sandwich shop also offers a catering menu and delivery by bicycle courier in the downtown area. There is no minimum order for delivery.

Jimmy John’s opens daily at 10:30 a.m. and closes at 9 p.m. Call the restaurant at (509) 838-3278 (FAST).

Metro Café for sale

Andrew “Swanee” Swanson is moving but he’d like to leave his downtown café in good hands.

The Metro Café, a fixture in the skywalk level at 501 W. Riverside Ave. for a quarter of a century, is for sale.

The cafe is known for its home-style entrees and soups, tossed salads and the daily roasted turkey, along with other carved meats such as roast beef, pork tenderloin, ham and meatloaf.

Swanson is working on a new restaurant in Shoreline, Wash., with the same builder who gave him the opportunity to open the Metro Café 25 years ago.

He says he’s not thrilled about giving up the Spokane lifestyle.

“I’m reluctant to go to Seattle. I’ve lived here my whole life,” he says.

The opportunity to work again with Inland Construction was too good to refuse. The new restaurant will be part of a complex of 450 townhouses in Shoreline, where Swanson and his family will also live. He’ll be able to walk around the corner to go to work.

“We’d like to start building that as soon as I walk out of here,” Swanson says.

He’s willing to train a new owner and has The Metro Café listed for sale on the Web site bizbuysell.com as well as Craigslist.

Swanson says he’ll miss the Spokane customers – many of whom are regulars who work nearby.

“They’re professionals and they treat you like a professional, too,” he says. “The customers are wonderful. They are not cranky shoppers.”

The Metro Café is open 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Reach the cafe at (509) 747-8250.

THE TOP 18 LOW-CARB FAST FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS

Let’s run down the exact menu items you can order at the top 18 most popular fast-food chains.

1. MCDONALD’S

Found all over the world, McDonald’s was once notoriously unhealthy until they turned a new leaf and started including healthier menu options a few years ago. Now if you just want to swing through the drive-thru, an Egg McMuffin without the muffin will do, as will the Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich without the bun. You could even request a custom order of just the sausage and egg rounds from the breakfast menu and see if your server can’t help you out.

2. CHICK-FIL-A

Again, chicken is keto-friendly and low in carbs, so the Grilled Chicken Club with bun removed is perfect. With bacon and cheese for your fat macros and some lettuce and tomato for a minimal amount of carbs, it’s safe to eat here.

3. BURGER KING

Another seemingly ubiquitous fast-food restaurant, Burger King has a Grilled Chicken Burger you can opt for, or order their Garden Side Salad: sub in bacon instead of croutons and you’ve got a delicious option you don’t have to fret about when it comes time to check your ketone levels.

4. KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN

KFC, much like Chick-fil-A, has based their whole establishment around the chicken. While most of their menu items are fried or just balls of carbs (those heavy, buttery biscuits), there are a few healthy items on the menu. Grilled chicken is again available, as are sides like green beans and coleslaw.

5. WENDY’S

Wendy’s has a Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit order you can consume without the biscuit—it’s basically what some nutritionists might call “a deconstructed omelet.” Wendy’s also has an app with a customizable nutrition option to help you make the right choice for your low-carb diet.

6. PANERA BREAD

With “bread” right in the name, you may be wondering what you could possibly eat at Panera, and the answer is a salad. Specifically, their Greek Salad, as it only has 7 grams of net carbs (plus 4 grams of healthy fiber), and you can skip the dressing it comes with to make your own dressing at the water fountain where there are olive oil and lemon wedges available.

7. SONIC

Tired of all the chicken? You can order up an All-Beef Hot Dog at Sonic for a simple protein solution. Just leave the bun on the plate when you’re done and choose wisely when it comes to your condiments.

8. TACO BELL

The Power Bowl, so long as you specify no rice and no beans, is nothing but a keto-approved medley of veggies, protein, and toppings like sour cream, cheese, and guac. A burrito bowl can be customizable as it’s a menu item that’s easy to tailor to your needs.

9. CARL’S JR.

The Charbroiled Chicken Club Sandwich at Carl’s Jr. can be enjoyed, with fats like mayo and bacon toppings, so long as you (of course) excuse the bun from your intake.

10. PIZZA HUT

Here’s some variety for you: at Pizza Hut you can order Naked Bone-In Wings. Not the standard grilled chicken fare you’re used to seeing on this list, but instead, an un-sauced chicken wing selection that you can still dunk in some blue cheese dressing for the fat portion of the meal. Made with soybean oil and corn syrup, it isn’t the healthiest food in the world, but most fast-food chains aren’t where you go for perfect health but for convenience.

11. JIMMY JOHN’S

Jimmy John’s has you covered in a way so many other restaurants don’t with the “Unwich” option. These are custom orders everywhere else, but Jimmy John’s know some people want all the makings of a sandwich without the bread. Perfect! Their Unwich items include:

  • The Big Italian Unwich comes with ham, salami, pork, provolone, onion, lettuce, tomato, vinegar, and oil.
  • The J.J. BLT with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and a little bit of mayo on top.
  • The J.J. Gargantuan full of roast beef, turkey, pork, salami, ham, and provolone (in case you want all your protein at once).
  • The Slim 3 Unwich that is basically made up of tuna and mayo, so it’s tuna salad in a lettuce wrap for a perfectly keto meal.

That’s not all. They have six Slim Unwich options, along with Unwich versions of the Pepe, the Big John, the Vito, the Turkey Tom, the Spicy East Coast Italian, the Billy Club, the Country Club, the Jimmy Cubano, and the Ultimate Porker. Basically, if you see a sandwich you like at Jimmy John’s you can get it Unwiched without any of the hassle involved in asking for a special off-menu substitution.

12. SUBWAY

Speaking of sandwich shops, Subway, too, can be workable, like say if you order a tuna salad on top of cucumbers. Filling and fresh, you can add the toppings you want without any more trouble than it takes to order any other standard sandwich. You can also choose the Double Chicken Chopped Salad with Avocado for an all-keto meal option.

13. ARBY’S

The Roast Turkey Farmhouse Salad at Arby’s has the veggies and protein content you need, so long as you remember to skip their dressing in favor of plain vinegar or oil. The same goes for the Smokehouse Brisket with Gouda cheese—that and a side salad won’t leave you feeling deprived.

14. IN-N-OUT BURGER

Ask for a Protein-Style Cheeseburger and ye shall succeed. Much like Jimmy John’s, In-N-Out has options ready-made for those on a low-carb diet who don’t want to fill up on bread. Protein-Style just means lettuce-wrapped, a lean and healthier option. Ask for fresh onions rather than grilled ones to lower the carbs even further.

15. HARDEE’S

Getting a Thickburger sans the ketchup provides you with a quarter-pound patty that’s low-carb and filling. Just be careful if you are on keto to watch your protein macros for the rest of the day, as this may max you out.

16. FIVE GUYS

This casual fast-food joint has the option of the Little Bacon Cheeseburger with no bun, and they may even supply you with the makings of a lettuce wrap if you’re willing to ask. Add some mayo to increase the fat content, but of course, skip their signature sack of fries.

17. JERSEY MIKE’S

The #1 BLT, the Chicken Salad, the #6 Roast Beef & Provolone, and the #9 Club Supreme are all under 500 calories and fewer than 10 grams of carbs if you order the sandwich “in a tub” instead of between two slices of bread.

18. CHIPOTLE

We started with McDonald’s, so let’s end there is a sense with Chipotle. Though the McDonald’s corporation sold out of their Chipotle ownership in recent years, for a long time they were key investors in making the Chipotle chain another booming success.

Even more recently Chipotle has added a menu section for Lifestyle Bowls, each one specifically crafted for popular diets like keto, paleo, and Whole30. The Keto Salad Bowl comes with romaine lettuce, red salsa, guacamole, carnitas, and cheese, but most of their Lifestyle Bowls are appropriately low carb, with options like a sour cream topping to help boost your fat macros.


Sandwich of the Week: Jimmy John’s J.J. Gargantuan - Recipes

I got my newsletter from Men's Health today (stop laughing. I couldn't find the newsletter anywhere else - I tried!) and I wanted to share with you guys whenever I can the information that is given by the Eat This Not That newsletter. I find it eye opening when it comes to the hidden calories in things that we know aren't healthy, but even in the things that we think are healthy.

20. Worst Ham & Cheese Sandwich
Little Caesars Ham & Cheese Deli Sandwich
640 calories
29 g fat (3 g saturated fat)
1,540 mg sodium

A ham and cheese sandwich quickly turns ugly with a few poor choices in bread and cheese.

Eat This Instead!
Two slices Thin Crust Cheese Pizza With Ham topping (12”)
290 calories
14 g fat (6 g saturated fat)
490 mg sodium

19. Worst Fish Sandwich
Burger King BIG FISH Sandwich with Tartar Sauce
640 calories
32 g fat (5 g saturated fat)
1540 mg sodium

Fish is only healthy when it's not breaded and fried in partially hydrogenated oil. Here, the fry treatment translates into 7 grams of trans fats and 108 grams of carbohydrates.

Eat This Instead!
Whopper Jr. without mayo and Garden Salad
365 calories
12 g fat (4.5 g saturated fat)
1230 mg sodium

18. Worst Kids' Sandwich
Au Bon Pain Kids’ Grilled Cheese
670 calories
41 g fat (25 g saturated fat)
1,060 mg sodium

Au Bon Pain ruins a simple sandwich by adding as much saturated fat as 25 strips of bacon. As a rule of thumb, avoid all of Au Bon Pain’s kids’ sandwiches, as every one of them contains more than 500 calories.

Eat This Instead!
Kids’ Macaroni and Cheese
220 calories
14 g fat (9 g saturated fat)
650 mg sodium

17. Worst Grilled Chicken Sandwich
Jack in the Box Chipotle Chicken Ciabatta
690 calories
28 g fat (9 g saturated fat)
1,850 mg sodium

Unlike many other fast food restaurants that have made the shift away from trans fats, Jack in the Box's menu has a number of items with more than 5 grams of the artery-clogging stuff. Add fries and you’ll get 7 more grams of this nasty fat.

Eat This Instead!
Chicken Fajita Pita
300 calories
9 g fat (3.5 g saturated fat)
1,090 mg sodium

16. Worst Hot Sandwich
Sonic Chicken Club Toaster Sandwich
690 calories
35 g fat (10 g saturated fat)
1,900 mg sodium

How can a chicken sandwich pack so much fat? Start with a fried chicken breast, add bacon, cheese, and mayo, and you're there. Ditch the chicken for beef and save 10 grams of fat.

Eat This Instead!
Sonic Burger with Mustard
540 calories
25 g fat (9 g saturated fat)
730 mg sodium

15. Worst Breakfast Sandwich
Jack in the Box Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit
740 calories
55 g fat (17 g saturated fat)
1,430 mg sodium

Skip biscuits at all costs. This one contains nearly a full day’s worth of saturated fat.

Eat This Instead!
Bacon Breakfast Jack
300 calories
14 g fat (5 g saturated fat)
730 mg sodium

14. Worst Crispy Chicken Sandwich
Hardee’s Big Chicken Fillet Sandwich
800 calories
37 g fat (6 g saturated fat)
1,890 mg sodium

A general rule: Avoid sandwiches with words like “big” and “monster” in the name. Hardee’s Monster Thickburger is another example—it comes in at 1,420 calories, 108 grams of fat, and more saturated fat than you want in two days.

Eat This Instead!
Charbroiled BBQ Chicken Sandwich
415 calories
5 g fat (1 g saturated fat)
1,175 mg sodium

13. Worst Roast Beef Sandwich
Arby’s Roast Beef and Swiss Market Fresh Sandwich
810 calories
42 g fat (13 g saturated fat)
1,780 mg sodium

The unwholesome trinity of mayo, Italian sub sauce, and processed Swiss cheese make this sandwich the clear loser in the battle of the beef.

Eat This Instead!
Super Roast Beef
440 calories
19 g fat (7 g saturated fat)
1,061 mg sodium

12. Worst Vegetarian Sandwich
Jimmy John’s Gourmet Veggie Club
Provolone, avocado, cucumber, alfalfa sprouts, lettuce, tomato, mayo
856 calories
46 g fat (15 g saturated fat)
1,500 mg sodium

The worst thing about this sandwich is its seemingly healthy name. Don’t let it fool you. A simple swap of avocado spread for mayo knocks off 200 calories, 24 grams of fat, and 98 grams of sodium.

Eat This Instead!
Vegetarian Sub
Avocado spread, cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts
290 calories
1.5 g fat (1 g saturated fat)
628 mg sodium

11. Worst Turkey Sandwich
Chili’s Smoked Turkey Sandwich
930 calories
57 g fat (15 g saturated fat)
2,920 mg sodium

Do you really want to devour 88 percent of your daily-recommended fat intake from one turkey sandwich? How about 122 percent of your maximum sodium load? We didn’t think so.

Eat This Instead!
Chicken Fajita Pita
450 calories
17 g fat (3 g saturated fat)
1,750 mg sodium

10. Worst Meat-Lovers Sandwich
Jimmy John’s J.J Gargantuan
1,008 calories
55 g fat (15 g saturated fat)
3,783 mg sodium

A vegetarian’s nightmare invented by Jimmy John’s heavy-handed brother, Huey. This gut bomb features Genoa salami, smoked ham, capicola, roast beef, smoked turkey, and provolone smothered with mayo and Italian dressing.

Eat This Instead!
Turkey Breast Slim Sub
With Alfalfa Sprouts, Tomatoes, Onion, Cucumber, and Avocado Spread
426 calories
2 g fat (1 g saturated fat)
1,439 mg sodium

9. Worst Tuna Sandwich
Cosi Tuna Melt
1,012 calories
60 g fat
1,948 mg sodium

Tuna is one of the most misunderstood sandwich fillings. Prepared in your kitchen—with smart condiments like Hellman’s Canola Cholesterol Free Mayonnaise—and served on whole wheat bread, it’s a nutritional safe haven. But made by someone else behind closed doors, it rarely results in anything worthy of passing your lips.

Eat This Instead!
Turkey Light Sandwich
476 calories
9 g fat (0 g saturated)
1,299 mg sodium

8. Worst Steak Sandwich
Boston Market Sirloin Dip Carver Au Jus
1,020 calories
51 g fat (15 g saturated fat)
2,450 mg sodium

This sandwich has as much saturated fat as 30 Chicken McNuggets and enough salt to preserve a small city.

Eat This Instead!
Boston Turkey Carver
770 calories
27 g fat (8 g saturated fat)
1,810 mg sodium

7. Saltiest Sandwich
Quiznos Turkey Bacon Guacamole Large Sub
with Cheese and Reduced-Fat Ranch Dressing
Calories 1,120
Fat 49 g
Sodium 4,670 mg

Salt Equivalent: 7 large orders of onion rings from Burger King.

Eat This Instead!
Honey Bourbon Chicken
310 calories
4 g fat (1 g saturated fat)
920 mg sodium

6. Worst Barbecue Sandwich
Applebee’s Honey Barbecue Chicken Sandwich
1,280 calories
58 g fat (21 g saturated fat)
1,970 mg sodium

How bad can a chicken sandwich be? Bad enough that Applebee’s still refuses to give up their nutritional information. Until Applebee’s coughs up the hard data, stick with the 10-dishes on their Weight Watchers menu—or find another restaurant.

Eat This Instead!
Tortilla Chicken Melt
480 calories
13 g fat (4 g saturated fat)
935 mg sodium

5. Worst Chicken Sandwich
T.G.I. Friday’s Chicken Sandwich
1,360 calories
78 g fat
1,890 mg sodium

Between mammoth sandwiches like this one and the array of deep-fried starters, its clear Friday’s has something to hide (their nutrition information). The Lighter Side of Friday’s contains five items with 󈫺 grams of fat and 500 calories.” It’s a sorry attempt at transparency, but until they offer real data, it’s the best option.

Eat This Instead!
Dragonfire Chicken
500 calories
10 g fat
825 mg sodium

4. Worst Cheesesteak Sandwich
Quiznos Prime Rib Cheesesteak (Large)
1,490 calories
88 g fat (21 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat)
2,675 mg sodium

It doesn’t take a dietitian to know that a cheesesteak probably won’t make the list of flat-belly foods, but everyone gives in to the occasional craving. And that’s OK. But if you have a weakness for this Philly favorite, indulge in the small version for half the fat and calories.

Eat This Instead!
Small Black Angus Sandwich
520 calories
16.5 g fat (7 g saturated fat)
1,550 mg sodium

3. Worst Italian Sandwich
Quiznos Classic Italian (large)
1,510 calories
82 g fat
3,750 mg sodium
106 g carbs

A large homemade sandwich would more likely provide about 500 calories. Cut the calories: Isn't it obvious? Order a small—or save half for later.

Eat This Instead!
Small Tuscan Turkey on Rosemary Parmesan without cheese
390 calories
14 g fat (3 g saturated fat)
1,185 mg sodium

2. Worst Roll-Up
Applebee’s Southwest Philly Roll-Up with salsa
1,605 calories
121 g fat (38 g fat)
2,338 mg sodium

What’s the worst thing about a roll-up? It’s easier to conceal the fat-riddled contents. With nearly as many calories as four Quarter Pounders and as much fat as 10 Egg McMuffins, there’s a lot hiding in this one.

Eat This Instead!
Teriyaki Steak and Shrimp Skewers
370 calories
7 g fat (2 g saturated)
1,475 mg sodium

1. Worst Sandwich in America
Quiznos Tuna Melt (large)
2,090 calories
175 g fat (31 g saturated fat, 2.5 g trans fats)
2,190 mg sodium

This sandwich puts tuna’s healthy reputation on the line. A large homemade sandwich would likely provide one-fourth of the calories.

Eat This Instead!
Small Honey Bourbon Chicken on Wheat Bread
310 calories
4 g fat (1 g saturated fat)
920 mg sodium

And if you hung in here this long. I'm rewarding you with a few items (I'll give a few more next week) off of their Best Foods List too. I'm simply following their list of the 125 best products - but apparently this week we're getting mostly carbs.

Going Keto Part 5: Seven Keto Restaurant Hacks

If you’re not up to date on ketogenics yet, look back at previous entries for the benefits of going Keto, how to prepare for ketosis, your first week of Keto at home, and how to meal prep, Keto-style (including recipes). This month we’re providing a Keto-lifeline to those who forgot to meal prep for the week (and don’t feel like fasting their way through the work day). You can order a Keto-friendly meal at almost any major chain restaurant, if you know the macros behind their ingredients, so feel free to eat-out and stay-in (ketosis). Yup, even at McDonald’s…we’ve got your back.

Sorry… no rice, beans, corn, or tortilla this time. Get a salad bowl, go heavy on the cheese, sour cream, and guacamole (or else be that guy who brings in an avocado). Go very light on the salsa (hottest is safest) and select a fattier meat (steak or pork).

Try a spinach salad instead of a sandwich. Load up on all the vegetables your bowl can handle, but go easy on the tomatoes (it’s technically a fruit and definitely has sugar). Mayo, olive oil, vinegar, Buffalo Sauce, and mustard are your safest condiments… beware of the Honey Mustard and Sweet Onion sauce! Subway also has a thorough macro-breakdown which you can DOWNLOAD HERE.

JIMMY JOHN’S

Mr. John himself likely went Keto at one point, because his “Unwich” sandwich option substitutes bread for a lettuce wrap. The Vegetarian and Gourmet Veggie unwiches are safest in terms of carbs and protein, but don’t forget about the fats… get plenty of mayonnaise, avocados, and olive oil! Look to the Italian Night Club or the Ultimate Porker if you want some meat. Their notoriously large J.J. Gargantuan is doable, but you’ll need to cut the tomatoes and onions, plus compensate with extra fats. They even have a nutrition calculator online!

The not-so-secret “Protein Style” option at In-N-Out is a perfect way to bind stacks of fatty beef and cheese together in lettuce. No “Animal Style,” though… the only extra toppings you’re allowed are cheese slices and mustard. Most burger joints will have a comparable, lettuce-wrapped option if you ask. If you’re feeling particularly loose, order the “Flying Dutchman!” It’s literally just stacks of meat and cheese.

Should your hunger-tunnel ever end at the golden arches, fear not. Ask for exactly what you want and they’ll oblige: Two Round Eggs, Bacon, and Cheese. Beware… the sausage contains maltodextrin! (No wonder it’s so good.) Burgers without buns or ketchup. Even thinking about the secret sauce could take you out of Keto. It may appear a bit odd, getting this stripped-down dish served to you on a pancake tray, but your Keto remains intact.

This place is a minefield. Baristas by trade don’t specialize in niche meal plans like Keto, so you’ll need to keep an eye on the brewing of anything more intricate than straight coffee. Most of their syrups and mixers are loaded with sugar… even the “sugar-free vanilla” contains maltodextrin! If you need some flavor, stick with the sugar-free caramel specifically (or just learn to love the cold brew). Don’t be fooled by the “skinny” versions of a drink…it’s still not Keto!

GROCERY STORES

If you happen to live in a no stop-light kind of town, more cows than people, and not a single chain restaurant you can turn to… feast away at the local grocery. Grab some salami slices and wrap up a few mozzarella sticks

Cracker Barrel Dish

Homestyle Chicken: 1,350 calories, 92 g fat (19 g saturated fat), 3,200 mg sodium, 65 g carbs (6 g fiber, 2 g sugar), 66 g protein

Congratulations, Cracker Barrel. You've managed to knock out an entire day's worth of sodium (and then some) with just one plate of breaded and deep-fried chicken. Anyone ordering this not only needs to stay away from the two sides and biscuit that come with it, but the drink menu as well. Instead of the iced tea and lemonade, chug as much water as possible to combat this amount of salt.
