HEALTHY EATING AT DAVANNI'S
DAVANNI'S HOAGIES: DON'T WORRY! EAT HEALTHY!
There's no reason why a Delicious Hoagy cannot be a Healthy Hoagy. After all, our Hoagies are:
- A complete meal by themselves, with components from all of the food groups.
- High in protein, vitamins and complex carbohydrates.
- Low in sugar and comparatively low in sodium.
- While not particularly low in calories, you get a lot of "bang for your buck." In other words, they are nutrient rich (the ratio of vitamins and other nutrients to calories is high).
- Our hoagy buns provide minerals and fiber.
- Besides being high in protein, our meats and cheeses provide good amounts of Vitamin A (eyes and immune system), the B-complex vitamins (converts carbohydrates into glucose for energy, crucial in the metabolism of fats and protein, and necessary for the normal functioning of the nervous system), and Vitamin D (bones, teeth, nervous system, heart function and blood clotting).
- Tomatoes and other vegetables provide B vitamins, Vitamin C (enhances the immune system and speeds healing), lycopene, carotenoids, necessary minerals and numerous mico-nutrients.
Our Hoagies are healthy to begin with. Here's why! Our rolls have less shortening and sugar than theirs. Our meats are also much leaner. Our chicken breast, turkey breast, roast beef and pastrami are all oven roasted. Our chicken is 100% breast meat and not breaded or deep fried. Our ham and Canadian bacon are naturally (not chemically) smoked. Our pepperoni and salami are "hard" (soft salami, cotto, etc. are much higher in fat) and naturally cured. Our mozzarella has been twice named, "Best in the World." We only buy "clean label" products. Our meatballs and sausage contain no fillers. None of our deli meats contain any MSG or texturized soy protein. When it comes to the "meat of the subject", no one buys higher quality than we do. Nobody! The result is you don't have to leave off all of the good stuff to eat healthy and still be low in fat.
But that doesn't mean that you can't make your Healthy Hoagy even Healthier. Here's How!
- Want low fat with great flavor? Choose from any of these amazing half haogies: Turkey, Roast Beef, Ham, Pastrami, Chicken Breast or Veggie. Just order them with no mayo or oil. Because our rolls are healthier and our meats are leaner, you can still have the garlic spread and cheese and be under 10 grams of fat. Surprised that you can have roast beef and pastrami? That's because we use only top cuts of meat that are 97% lean. (Our turkey breast is 98% lean.)
- You can order the Club with no pepperoni, no mayo or oil and eat a Meatball or Sausage Hoagy with no cheese and still be under 10 fat grams also.
- Want it even lower in fat? Order it with no cheese, keep the garlic spread and you'll be close to 7 grams of fat for any of these hoagies.
- Need more flavor? Replace our normal mayonnaise with our packets of low-fat mayo and/or prepared mustard (zero fat). Of course, extra tomatoes, lettuce or onion add flavor, fiber and vitamins with no fat.
- What? A half hoagy doesn't fill you? Then add a Side Salad (no fat) with lemon or low-fat dressing and you can still be under 10 grams of fat for your entire meal!
At DAVANNI'S, eating healthy comes naturally, is delicious, easy and is never boring!
