You’ve gotta try a keto-friendly Subway Protein Bowl, also known as the”No Bready bowl.”

Subway is joining the long list of fast-food restaurants adding protein bowls to its menu!

Subway recently added No Bready Bowls™ as a menu option, so now you can order any of the chain’s Footlong Subs in this keto-friendly format. The bowls come with the same portion of protein, vegetables, cheese, and sauce as the restaurant’s famous Footlong Subs, but without all of the carbs and sugar associated with Subway’s bread!

Subway protein bowls on counter

There are currently 12 Subway Protein Bowls on their menu (a.k.a. No Bready Bowls™), with 12 of them being pretty keto-friendly, giving you lots of tasty options to choose from.

Subway protein bowl with chicken

We found them priced from $6.99 to $11.99 at our location, with the option to double the protein on any bowl for just $2 more. Keep in mind that pricing does vary by location.

Hip tip: Avoid the Meatball, Veggie, and the Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki as they are pretty high in carbs.

“These Subway Protein Bowls were really satisfying, and you definitely don’t need to order several of them like I did to fill up! 😆 One of these would have made a really hearty meal, with plenty of fat and protein to keep you going for the rest of the day. My favorite was the Buffalo Chicken Protein Bowl – it was packed with flavor and was so delicious!

If I’m really hungry, I might spend the extra two bucks to double the protein, and then maybe add some bacon and guacamole for extra fat.”Stetson

    Can you make and have what you won’t in the bowls

      Great question! They are available to order just like their subs, where you let them know which kind you’d like and then you can customize your toppings. Hope that helps!

    Had the chicken pizziola. With no dressing. And it was so good! After being diagnosed as diabetic I thought Subway was a thing of the past. Glad to see I am wrong.
