First IHOP, now Dunkin' Donuts. The donut and coffee chain plans to drop its famous “donuts” from the logo by January 2019 to be officially known as Dunkin’. The change is supposedly due to the fact that Dunkin’ offers more than just doughnuts. As Dunkin’ is just about everywhere you turn — including in most airports — it’s always wise to know what your healthy options are. Here are a few of our top Dunkin’ healthy choices. No, doughnuts did not make this list.

Sandwiches and Wraps

Veggie Egg White Sandwich is an egg white omelet with diced red and green bell peppers, mushrooms, and green onions topped with a slice of American cheese and served on your choice of bread (multigrain bread or English muffin are better bread choices).

Wake Up Wrap Sandwich is tailored to your liking. Choose from eggs or egg whites and add whatever meat you choose. You can make this a healthy choice by selecting eggs and ham.
