Jimmy John’s offers any sandwich of your choice as an “Unwich” i.e a lettuce wrap instead of the carb-loaded bread. You can further customize the unwich with low-carb toppings like mustard, pickle, provolone cheese, and more.

Jimmy John’s is a popular restaurant chain known for its sandwiches and subs, as well as its freaky-fast deliveries.

All the sandwiches are quite high in carbs due to the bread, but the restaurant does offer a low-carb option for those following a keto or low-carb diet.

Their “unwich” has made it a lot more convenient for you to enjoy a wholesome meal without worrying about strict daily carb budgets.

Jimmy John’s unwiches fall into four categories: Slims, Originals, Favorites, and the Little Johns.

Starting from the Little Johns and going all the way up to the Favorites, you have a ton of options based on your preference and appetite at that point of time.

On top of that, they also offer a variety of sides that can definitely be a part of a healthy keto diet.

Without any further ado, let’s look at all the keto-friendly options available to you here!
