Not sure about what to order from Dunkin Donuts for your daily coffee run in the morning? Well, let’s introduce you to all the nutritionist-approved offerings at Dunking Donuts. Here they are:
- Hot Coffee
We’re sure you’ll agree that sometimes the safest option is to stick with the classics. When it comes to the coffee at Dunkin Donuts, you shouldn’t be worried about it containing a week’s worth of calories in sugar content, toppings, and flavored syrups.
Coffee, on its own, consists of virtually zero calories. If you want it to stay this way, you should opt for black coffee with a regular or half of the regular sugar packet. If you’re curious about alternatives to sure, then all the researches out there will leave you confused. Just stick with whatever you prefer.
- Turkey Sausage Flatbread
Researchers have found that people should aim for about somewhere between 25 and 30 grams of protein in the morning. The Turkey Sausage Flatbread comes in at 26 grams – which makes it one of the healthiest options that could help meet your goals. This meal offers you great amounts of carbohydrates and calories while using minimal fat for its fullness. If you go for this choice, however, we would recommend that grab a bottle of water too because this meal has a very high salt content.
- Iced & Hot Tea
Next time you are on your morning run, skip the sweet teas and opt for the unsweetened iced or black tea. You can also choose one of their fruit tea options. A medium-sized mango, pineapple, or blackberry fruit tea will have similar caloric intake as the plain teas which have added packets of sugar. All-in-all, you can’t go wrong with this option, and we would also like to tell you that their hot teas aren’t that shabby too, because they are all unsweetened. Since we’re on the topic of sugary substances, why not plan your cheat day with Dunkin Donuts in style. These menu tips will introduce you to Dunkin Donuts’ savory secret menu.
- Egg & Cheese English Muffin
This is a lot of people’s go-to morning meal as it comes with 2 grams of sugar, 13 grams of protein, and about 300 calories. This won’t be nutritional as a meal on its own, so we would recommend that you pair it with a packet of almonds. If you don’t want to carry extra balanced snacks with you, they you can also go ahead and request a second egg patty on your meal for an extra boost of fat and protein.
- Cold Brew
Dunkin Donut’s cold brew coffee is a great option from their menu because of the fact that it doesn’t have any extra additives in it. If you don’t want your coffee black, then you can choose to add milk. You can choose either whole milk or skim milk if you want to steer clear of the cream. If you don’t work too well with dairy, then almond milk will be another great substitute. Want your Cold Brew even sweeter? Well, you may add some more sugar to enhance the taste.
If, however, you prefer flavored coffee, then their flavor shots will add some flavor to your cold coffee without the need of sugar. One packet of sugar consists of about 4 to 5 grams and will add 16 to 20 calories.
- Two Egg & Cheese Wake-Up Wraps
Yes, you should have two! This is because of the fact that we need a little more caloric intake in the morning than the 180 calories of one Egg & Cheese Wake-up Wrap. Since a single wrap doesn’t offer much nutritional value, most people will find themselves craving for a nice doughnut only an hour later and forget all about how they planned to ditch the calories.
The Egg & Cheese Wake-Up Wrap offers Dunkin Donuts’ fans with heart-healthy fats thanks to its great amounts of protein and full egg. Again, pairing this with small energy snacks will be a good way of maintaining fullness and energy levels.
- Veggie Egg White Flatbread
If you’re looking for something with adequate levels of protein and moderate levels of carbs and fat, then this breakfast sandwich will be a great choice. Alongside all these ingredients, the Veggie Egg White Flatbread will also have a few vegetables in the mix for good measure.
We know you’re keen for some sugary hot chocolate in the morning, but you can swap these feelings for this beverage that is filled with espresso. You can also choose to add little or no sugar at all. One small and steaming Americano will pair beautifully with your breakfast sandwich every morning. You’ll more than just a simple wake up!
- Multigrain Oatmeal
This particular pick wouldn’t be such a smart choice if you opt for the brown sugar version that also has dried fruit. If you choose this, then you’ll have consumed about 10 teaspoons of brown sugar. The smarter choice will be the plain Multigrain Oatmeal which only has dried fruit. Other than this, it will consist of not a lot of protein – which stands at only 5 grams. You can also add your own nuts from home to make your choice a little more satisfying.
- Ham, Egg & Cheese English Muffin
Yes, you read right – Dunkin Donut’s Ham, Egg, and Cheese English Muffin is a healthy morning choice. This sandwich will be a winner for breakfast because it beautifully balances a respectable level of fiber at 7 grams with carbs, fat, and balanced protein.
- The Glazed Donut
Why not leave some room for doughnuts in your healthy diet too, right? If you do crave for something sweet in the morning, then this simple doughnut can be your safest bet. The Glazed Donut comes in at about 12 grams of sugar or an approximate 3 teaspoons. This adds up to about 260 calories, and the whole experience should really hit the spot.
