We Tried It! The Best Microwave Sandwiches

Don't blow your diet! We found three microwave sandwiches that are tasty and low in calories.

It's nearly impossible to judge the calorie and fat content of a made-to-order deli sandwich. The alternative: One of the growing number of diet-friendly microwaveable sandwiches. Here are our top picks:

Lean Pockets Ham & Cheese Ultra

200 calories, 6g fat, 2.5g saturated fat
Among those we tried, this sandwich ranks highest in protein and fiber (25 grams and 7 grams, respectively) and lowest in calories -- though you'd never guess it from the smoky, cheesy flavor.

Smart Ones Garden Veggies & Mozzarella Smartwich

270 calories, 6g fat, 2.5g saturated fat
One of the few vegetarian sandwich options available, it's stuffed with fresh-tasting zucchini, spinach, and peppers, all smothered in tomato sauce and cheese.

Lean Cuisine Panini Southwest-Style Chicken

280 calories, 7g fat, 3g saturated fat
The silver-sided box actually "grills" the two thick sourdough bread slices to crisp perfection. Stuffed inside are mesquite-seasoned chicken, veggies, cheese, and a mildly spicy sauce.
