When you’re trying to treat yourself without going overboard, you might not think of heading to Dunkin’ Donuts. But there are plenty of nutritionist-approved menu items to order on your next coffee run.
- Hot coffee - You can’t go wrong with a classic. It doesn’t have all the sugar in flavored syrups and toppings and coffee has virtually no calories.
- Turkey Sausage Flatbread - Research says you should try to eat about 25 to 30 grams of protein for breakfast and this one has 26, so it’s a good choice. It does have a high salt content, so make sure you drink plenty of water with it.
- Iced and Hot Tea - Their unsweetened green, black, or fruit teas are all good options.
- Egg and Cheese English Muffin - With just 300 calories, 13 grams of protein, and two grams of sugar, this is a pretty healthy choice.
- Cold Brew Coffee - There’s nothing added to this, so you can customize it with milk, flavored shots that don’t add sugar, and if you prefer yours sweet, add a swirl of flavored syrup to sweeten it up.
- Egg and Cheese Wake-Up Wraps - These are so small, you get to enjoy two and still be on the healthy side. The wraps are 180 calories of heart-healthy fats and protein, so they should keep you full and give you energy.
- Veggie Egg White Flatbread - It’s got “moderate fat,” with protein and even some veggies mixed in, so you know it’s got to be a good-for-you pick.
- Americano - This espresso drink gives you the caffeine kick you’re looking for without all the sugar in other coffee drinks.
- Ham, Egg and Cheese English Muffin - With seven grams of fiber and a good balance of protein, fat, and carbs, this is a healthy order.
- Glazed donut - Even this old school favorite makes the list. If you want something sweet, this is your best bet with 12 grams of sugar and 260 calories. But you have to stop at one.
