The Healthiest (and Unhealthiest) Things You Can Order at Panera Bread

Panera Bread cafes are like one of your oldest friendships. They’re cozy, pretty consistent (with a few seasonal twists), and they’re there for you no matter where you live.

But all friendships can have healthy and unhealthy choices. Steer clear of Panera’s unhealthy sandwiches, salads, and soups and opt for some of these nutritious picks instead.

The tie for the healthiest breakfast option goes to Panera Bread’s Steel Cut Oatmeal and its Turkey Sausage, Egg White & Spinach Breakfast Power Sandwich. According to Health, a good breakfast is relatively high in calories, protein, and fiber. Both of these options fall in the 300-calorie range.

For a meal higher in fiber opt for the Steel Cut Oatmeal with almonds, quinoa, and honey. If you’re looking for something higher in protein then the Power Sandwich is your best bet.
