Pret-A-Manger is a well-known British food retailer. The chain is simply known as "Pret" in the UK and can be found in most cities and towns. They have recently begun to expand throughout Europe and the United States. Today, Pret, which began as a sandwich store, offers a diverse menu that includes salads, snacks, and desserts.

Pret establishments are often open during business hours and serve breakfast and lunch. In cities and tourist regions, you might be able to find one open late at night. Unlike many other sandwich shops, one of Pret's biggest selling points is high-quality, healthy food. This is great for people who live with diabetes because there are many low-carb options on their menu.

Here's what you can order at Pret-a-Manger if you're watching your carbs and sugar intake because you're managing your diabetes.

Veggie Breakfast Roll

The veggie breakfast roll at Pret contains a mushroom and spinach omelet with cheese and slow-roasted tomatoes on a crusty white bun. If you're looking for a vegetarian breakfast alternative, this vegetable bun is a good choice. It offers 17 grams of protein per serving, which will keep you full, but replacing the white bun with a whole meal option will provide additional fiber to the dish (the white bun only has 3 grams of fiber). Mushrooms account for 16 percent of the meal, which is excellent because mushrooms are high in B vitamins and selenium, both of which can help with energy and a strong immune system. While there are a few tomatoes in there, some greens like spinach or rocket would have been a nice touch.


Hummus & Roast Pepper Open Sandwich

This "sandwich" includes hummus, red tapenade, and basil leaves spread on a large slice of multigrain bread. Chargrilled peppers, creamy chopped feta, and toasted pine nuts complete the dish. This is a fantastic lunch option for low carb and gluten-free people. It has many wholegrains, which contribute to the fiber content — each serving has over 12g of fiber, which is more than a third of the daily-required minimum. Fiber will keep you fuller for longer and provide you more steady energy levels. Chickpeas, which are also high in fiber and minerals, provide 14.5 grams of protein per serving in this open sandwich.


Chicken, Avocado & Basil Sandwich

This Pret classic has a lot less calories than you might assume. It is quite well balanced, with 39g of carbs, 24g of protein, and 7g of fiber per serving, and it is made using yoghurt mayo, which is lower in fat than standard mayonnaise. A decent amount of chicken gives an excellent supply of protein, while wholegrain bread boosts the fibre level. The only drawback is the lack of greens; a handful of tomatoes, carrots, or beets would boost this sandwich's nutritious value.


Roasted Chickpea Salad Bowl

This salad checks all the boxes if you are searching for a salad that is low in carbs and high in healthy fats. Despite the fact that it is a salad, it is high in calories and includes less fiber than many of Pret's sandwiches. The two types of cheese used and the sunflower oil-based dressing are most likely to blame for the high calorie count.


Salmon and Mango Salad Bowl

This salad has a lot to like about it. Salmon is a fantastic source of protein and omega-3 fats, as well as being low in carbs, making it a smart option for individuals seeking to lose a few pounds or those who find carb-rich meals affect their energy levels. Omega-3 fatty acids can help with cognitive function, immune system function, and mood. Mango adds a naturally sweet flavor to the dish while also providing potassium, one of the most vital elements in the body for muscle and nerve health.


Tamari & Ginger Salad Bowl

This low-carb salad provides the ideal balance of complex carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats, and vegetables, leaving you feeling satisfied and energized. Ginger adds a natural warmth and spiciness to the dish and anti-inflammatory benefits from antioxidants. The main drawback is that this salad is low in fiber (just 5g per serving), so you might want to throw in a handful of nuts.

Bottom line

It is difficult to stick to a low-carb diet when you are eating out. You could cook every day, but everyone requires a break (and a social life) from time to time. Fortunately, there are many places that serve delectable high-fat, low-carb meals and Pret a Manger is one of them. To keep your breakfast or lunch low-carb when eating at Pret, make sure you pay close attention to the nutritional information provided on the menu and stick with a low-carb salad or open sandwich when possible.
