When I am on a high protein diet, I am constantly tempted by delicious sweet treats like donuts. Sadly, not many donuts are high in protein. However, you can find some menu options at Dunkin Donuts that offer high protein and are still delicious.
High Protein Entrees
When it comes to the entrees at Dunkin Donuts, there is really only one option that is high in protein without being really high in calories. If you are on a high protein diet and want a sandwich from Dunkin Donuts, try the tuna salad sandwich on an English muffin. It has 400 calories and 15 grams of protein. That works out to be 0.0375 grams of protein per calorie.
High Protein Drinks
If you are craving a delicious coffee beverage, there are some options at Dunkin Donuts. The options on this list all have at least 5 grams of protein and are all under 200 calories. They are sorted in order of grams of protein per calorie, so the choices offering the most bang for your buck are at the top.
The main thing that makes these drinks a source of protein is the dairy product included in the drink. If you are watching your calories, try ordering a low fat dairy product in your drink such as skim milk. Most of the different sizes in each drink will provide approximately the same amount of protein grams per calorie. However, based on the nutritional information available on Dunkin' Donuts' website, some drinks were had a slightly different protein to calorie ration depending on size.
