Good Eats: Healthy Summer Sandwiches

Good Eats: Healthy Summer Sandwiches
The best summer meals are healthy and light, and fresh. No one likes the feeling of getting into a bikini after a meal that makes you feel sluggish. Which is why we love Panera Bread for their nutritious and delicious sandwiches…

If you haven’t had a sandwich from Panera yet, you are missing out. One of our favorites is their Roasted Turkey & Avocado BLT, which uses antibiotic-free roasted turkey and ripe avocados on fresh bread. We also love their Breakfast Power Sandwich, which is made with antibiotic-free ham, a freshly cracked egg and Vermont white cheddar, all on whole grain bread. Besides tasting great and being antibiotic-free, this sandwich is only 340 calories! In our opinion, that’s a triple threat.

While Panera Bread has always had great sandwich options, their effort to provide as much antibiotic-free proteins as possible shows that they truly deliver quality and taste, all rolled into one delicious meal. Today, 80 percent of the antibiotics sold in the US go into the food people eat, according to Pew Health Initiatives. But since 2004, Panera has been striving to defy this statistic by serving chemical and antibiotic-free sandwiches. With bikini season in full swing, these sandwiches are the way to go.

Stay in the know about these delicious sandwiches from Panera Bread by following them on Twitter and Facebook.

Panera is also offering one lucky reader a $25 gift card so that you can taste these fabulous sandwiches for yourself!

Update: We have our winner! Congrats to Patricia!

    I’m an avid fan of Panera Bread when it comes to their sandwiches. Most recently, I’ve tried their new menu option, the shrimp salad roll sandwich, and it was fantastic!

    A Panera Bread just opened up in my small town, so I am very excited to try their Sausage, Egg and Cheese sandwich. I have a major weakness for spicy sausages and salami. Considering they are not the healthiest meat, it is amazing that Panera Bread has a healthier option for me :)

  • Cindy Dziuba

    I love the Mediterranean sandwich with a classic salad on the side. If you order the sandwhich without the fetta cheese you get a very filling and satisfying vegan meal (which is usualy a bit of a challenge to find at most restaurants)! Might I add that if you’re looking for a quick breakfast, their smoothies are delicious!

  • Tracy Johnson

    Panera is the ultimate go-to spot for healthy, delicious meals. It’s nice to be able to go out to eat and feel like you’re not consuming 1,000+ calories. I tend to choose the you-pick-two deal. My absolute fave is the 1/2 BBQ Chopped Chicken Salad paired with the Mediterranean Veggie. But I have to say anything I get, whether it be this combo or the Steak & Blue Cheese Chopped or the Sierra Turkey, is consistently mouth-watering and completely satisfying.

  • AshleyMarie

  • a_rohr

    Did you know they have a hidden menu??

    I love their Power Chicken Hummus Bowl. With the hummus and lemon juice, you don’t even need dressing. It’s beyond me why Panera keeps this menu a secret when everything on it is so good! The Mediterranean Veggie is also one of my go to sandwiches. Delish!

  • merc

    My favorite combo is 1/2 Vegetarian Black Bean Soup and 1/2 Mediterranean Veggie sandwich on whole grain bread – not the tomato basil bread. Top it off with an apple for the side and iced cold water.

  • Paige Nichols

    I love Panera for its healthy and vegetarian friendly options! It’s become a ritual for my friends and me to grab Panera after working out at the pilates studio.
    My absolute favorite salad is the strawberry poppyseed (without chicken of course). It’s light, delicious, and a great way to tackle those servings of both fruits and veggies. Since it’s seasonal, I make sure to get it as much as often during the summer. It truly is the perfect summer meal.

  • Maggie Fechtel

    The asian sesame chicken salad is the best for a fresh and filling salad :)

  • Monika Niebrzydowski

    My absolute favorite is the Chicken cobb salad with no bacon! Soso good!

  • Meli

    I have to say, my favorite item on their menu is the Strawberry Poppyseed and Chicken salad! So fresh and wholesome! I usually am a sandwich monster but this hits the spot. I love the idea of adding fruit in a salad.

  • LA

    I can’t wait to try the Shrimp Salad Roll!!

  • Julie Laba

    I always get a special order, I have them put the Napa Almond Chicken Salad (which is usually in a sandwich) on top of a garden salad. It is divine and allows me to eat something I love (chicken salad) in a smaller portion since it’s not the healthiest option, and with other great-for-you foods.

  • Emily Benziger

    I love Panera! We finally got a couple last year so I was so excited to be able to order my fav; Asian Sesame Chicken Salad + Tomato Soup!

    I may be coming around to this conclusion a little late in life, but nevertheless, it’s one of the happiest things to have happened to me: lettuce and fruit are fantastic partners on the salad plate! Thus, I’m really excited to see that Panera is again offering the Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken salad. Fresh fruit, crispy lettuce, and chicken for protein – I can’t wait to try it.

  • Bri

    One of my favorite sandwiches from Panera Bread is the Smokehouse Turkey. I was originally intrigued by the sun dried tomato ale mustard and it turned out to be fantastic and is now my favorite. I also sometimes get the half sandwich, half salad meal which is usually just enough to fill me up to where I’m not stuffed and feel awful for the next couple hours :)

  • Sarah B

    I’ve always been a big fan of Panera, so was excited to see this post! I can’t wait to try their New Pesto Sacchettini Pasta from their menu; normally I am all for their amazing soup selections.

  • Meka

    I have never ate at Panera Bread. But I have heard great reviews on their sandwiches. I think this would be the perfect opportunity for me to eat there. I would love to try the Italian combo sandwich or any sandwich with avocado cuz I love avocados lol!!!!

    The Sierra Turkey is my favorite Panera sandwich.
    It has smoked turkey breast and chipotle mayonnaise which gives it an extra kick to get my energy up for all my favorite summer activities; swimming, beach volleyball, tubing, and walking my dog in the beautiful sunshine us Minnesotans don’t often see. It also has field greens, red onions, Asiago Cheese, and it’s on Focaccia bread. Just writing about it is making my mouth water!

  • AJ

    I love the chicken salad sandwich they have at Panera. It is light yet filling.

  • Tylyn Oglesby

    My favorite items to order from Panera Bread would definitely have to be their Tomato and Mozzarella panini.

I am a big fan of sweet and savory combos and this is a great one.

    I love the Strawberry Poppy-seed salad with grilled chicken! It is a true sign that summer is here! It’s so refreshing and sweet, dressed up with fresh berries and pineapple, that you don’t even really need the dressing! My fiance and I love to split a pecan twist every once and a while as a treat afterwards (its how I get him to eat salad 😉

    My absolute favorite dish (a must have every time I go to Panera!) is the barbecue chopped chicken salad! I could eat this salad every day! It has such great flavors to it and I LOVE that it is very light! I never feel sluggish after eating at Panera. I’m a huge Panera fan! :)

    My absolute favorite sandwich is the Napa Almond Chicken Salad sandwich. I get it every time I go and despite probably consuming 100, I never tire of it. The flavors are delicious and timeless. I can’t wait to try the new sandwiches Panara has to offer.

    Mediterranean veggie sandwich! As a vegetarian, finding veg-friendly options while eating out is often a challenge but with this sandwich Panera makes it easier for me! (:

    I have had bad experiences with Panera in the past…

    But I have made a delicious sandwich very much like some of these (and I was in control of all the ingredients). I make a turkey sandwich (often using honey roasted turkey) with bacon, avocado, lettuce, and tomato. Sometimes I would add a slice of Swiss cheese. Very yummy!
