Coffee and doughnuts are tops at this morning chain, but Dunkin' Donuts also offers an array of savory menu options. Thanks to a DDSMART menu, there are plenty of choices that won't give you a doughnut around your middle!
Check out the DDSMART menu to find more nutritious breakfast items. Not all its items are healthy, so be sure to read menus carefully. Here are our top picks.
The three best breakfast items are the Egg White Veggie Flatbread Sandwich (290 calories, 9 g fat, 680 mg sodium), Egg White Turkey Sausage Flatbread Sandwich (280 calories, 6 g fat, 820 mg sodium), and the English muffin (160 calories, 1.5 g fat, 340 mg sodium).
Beware of healthy catch words like "multigrain" or "reduced fat." A Multigrain Bagel is a healthier choice than a donut, but it still contains 400 calories and 9 g of fat--before you add cream cheese. The Wheat Bagel, however, has only 350 calories, 4 g of fat and 650 mg of sodium. One packet of reduced-fat cream cheese tacks on 100 calories, 8 g of fat and 250 mg of sodium. A reduced-fat Blueberry Muffin--the lightest muffin available--clocks in at 450 calories, 10 g of fat and 670 mg of sodium!
If you need a sweet treat, try a Cinnamon Twist for 210 calories and 11 g of fat.
For a midday meal, try the Southwest Chicken Flatbread (310 calories, 9 g fat, 840 mg sodium) or the Turkey and Cheese Deli Classics Sandwich (450 calories, 13 g fat, 1,500 mg sodium).
If you must have a donut, choose either a cake donut without filling, such as a Blueberry Cake Donut (230 calories, 7 g fat, 330 mg sodium) or a basic Glazed Donut (220 calories, 9 g fat, 320 mg sodium).
Skip the fancy coffee drinks, which contain hundreds of calories and several grams of fat. A regular cup of flavored coffee has only 10-15 calories. If you want a coffee treat, choose the small (10 oz) Latte Lite (80 calories, 0 g fat, 110 mg sodium) or small (16 oz) Nonfat Coffee Coolatta (140 calories, 0 g fat, 75 mg sodium).
