Hey, Canada - It's Avocado and Spinach Season!
Subway® Canada Introduces New Avocado and Spinach Limited Time Offer Just in Time for Summer
TORONTO, May 31, 2013 /CNW/ - SUBWAY® Restaurants of Canada is offering Canadians two new fresh and healthy menu options, adding avocado and spinach to SUBWAY®'s lineup of sandwich and salad toppings.
A special seasonal limited time offer, avocado and spinach are available beginning June 1st, as topping options at more than 3,000 SUBWAY® locations across Canada, along with a new Turkey & Bacon with Avocado specialty sandwich.
"Summer is the perfect time to enjoy these fresh and tasty healthier topping options Canadians have been looking for," said Kathleen Bell , director of national marketing, SUBWAY® Restaurants of Canada.
"Whether enjoying one of our specialty sandwiches or a nutritious salad, Canadians are always looking for new and healthy ways to take their meal to a more exciting and satisfying level. We also think avocado and spinach make terrific additions to our SUBWAY® breakfast sandwiches," Bell said.
"Not only are avocado and spinach delicious options for summer, both offer a wide range of nutritional benefits," said SUBWAY® executive chef Chris Martone .
- Avocado is high in monounsaturated fat - the type that raises good HDL-cholesterol and lowers harmful triglycerides without raising harmful LDL-cholesterol
- Avocado is high in soluble fibre, B vitamins and folic acid, magnesium - and it's higher in potassium than bananas
- Avocado also contains Lutein, which has demonstrated numerous eye health benefits
- Spinach is extremely rich in antioxidants, and a source of vitamins A, C, E and K
- Spinach is rich in magnesium, folate, iron, protein and omega-3 fatty acids - plus it's very low in calories
"As the executive chef at SUBWAY®, I love the versatility that avocado and spinach offer. Individually or together, they make a wonderful compliment to a wide variety of our sandwich and salad offerings, giving our customers two new healthier options to choose from," Martone said.
Participating SUBWAY® restaurant locations across Canada are offering spinach as a regular sandwich or salad topping, while avocado is a premium addition for a small additional charge. Both avocado and spinach can be included in breakfast sandwiches as well.
