Wawa is not the first place you think of for healthy eating but those options exist, writes Amy Von Sydow Green for phillymag.com. Here are some healthy possibilities, though choices may vary depending on availability.

Breakfast
The healthiest breakfast sandwich is an egg white omelet sandwich with avocado on whole wheat. It fills you up, and gives you fiber, protein, iron, and calcium

Coffee
(Um, can’t live without Wawa coffee.) Order the Wawa Reserve Winter Blend. Any size. Add milk or cream but stay away from the high sugar drinks.

Lunch
Have the Oven-roasted Turkey Shorti hoagie.  The Shorti is a good lunch size. Turkey and swiss cheese give protein or even skip the cheese. Honey mustard and hot peppers add flavor and you can add veggies.

Vegetarian option
Try the Wawa Veggie Shorti on wheat. Swap the wheat roll to an original Shorti roll. Add cherry pepper relish for flavor.  Feel free to add a side of black beans for energy and fiber.

Dinner
enjoy the roasted veggie, black bean and rice burrito. Black beans give fiber, protein, magnesium and potassium. Add avocado for mono-saturated fats.  For flavor, add cheese, salsa, jalapeno peppers and sriracha sauce.

Snacks

  • Apple peanut butter dipper
  • The baby carrot snack bag and two hard-boiled eggs
  • Cottage cheese and pineapple
  • Salami-wrapped mozzarella cheese
  • RXBar or Kind bar.
