Panera or Bread Company

I love Panera (or Bread Co. for those of you who are with me!) As a native St. Louisan, it will always be Bread Co. in my heart! Regardless of what you call this restaurant, we can all agree it's a place to visit for amazing sandwiches, soups, and salads.

Panera has endless amounts of options on the menu! They probably have something similar to what you're craving, plus it's very easy to customize their menu choices to match your nutrition needs.

Panera salads

I always change up what I order at Panera, but I love their salads! They do not skimp on toppings and create them with ingredients that will keep you full and energized.

It's so easy to customize the ingredients to match your needs. Want more protein? Ask for double meat. Want less fat? Ask for the dressing on the side.

Green Goddess Salad

My go-to healthy Panera salad is the Green Goddess Cobb salad. Its nutrition profile is a balance of carbs, protein, and fat which will keep you full and energized! I love the flavors and always find myself coming back to this salad.

I order this salad so much that I wanted to create a copy cat version to make at home.

This Panera Green Goddess Salad is a copy cat of the original. The salad toppings are tweaked a little to match my nutrition needs, but it's very similar! This homemade salad is a quick and easy way to enjoy Panera right in your own home.

What is the healthiest salad at Panera?

The truth is, a salad is only "healthy" if it's "healthy" for you. Are you looking for a salad low in calories? High in fat? Higher in protein? You can customize ANY salad to make it work for YOU.

I choose the Panera Green Goddess Salad as a healthy option because of the high protein, moderate fat, and how much energy this will provide me.
