What to Eat at Wegmans: Healthy Menu Choices and Nutrition Facts


Verywell / Alexandra Shytsman

If you're a healthy eater who lives on the East Coast, you may visit Wegmans Food Markets, and specifically its Meals 2GO dining option. Wegman's subs are especially popular. Stores located in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, and Virginia are also known for providing a wide variety of healthful selections in departments including groceries, prepared foods, salads, and many others.

The open-air setting in most of the markets and the focus on nutrition within the stores would lead you to believe that everything at Wegmans is good for you. But like any market, there are both healthy choices at Wegmans and choices that aren't always nutritious, especially when it comes to the popular subs, coffees, and bakery treats.

Nutrition Facts

Wegmans shoppers often recommend the bakery for delicious and nutritious food. Freshly baked cakes, cookies, and bread are popular choices. But healthy eaters also enjoy packaged and freshly-prepared soups, salads, hot pasta, pizza, and more.

At Wegman's you can select from subs, sandwiches, soups, salads, pizza, wings, sushi, poke, pasta, desserts, sides, and drinks.

Most Nutritious Option

For the most nutritious item at Wegmans Meals 2GO, choose the regular garden salad from the refrigerated section for 210 calories, 10g carbs, and 5g protein.


Wegmans' menu of subs includes customer favorites like the Danny's favorite (named after the company's chairman), traditional turkey and chicken options, and even a vegetarian-friendly roasted red pepper hummus sub.

Wegman's sub shop tempts many customers who shop there. They offer a long list of both hot and cold sandwiches on a plain white roll, wheat roll, ciabatta roll, or an "everything" roll. You can also order your sub as a wrap in wheat or spinach flavors.

In general, these offerings are best consumed in moderation or split into two servings, saving one half for later. Choose leaner meats like turkey or chicken to save on cholesterol and calories.

✓ Traditional Turkey

The traditional turkey sub features sliced turkey, provolone cheese, lettuce, cucumbers, and yellow mustard. A medium traditional turkey sub has 610 calories, 15g fat, 4g saturated fat, 76g carbohydrates, 62g protein, and 1,900mg sodium.

Alternatively, you can ask for the small portion of this sub for only 300 calories.

✗ Meatball Parm

The hot meatball parm comes packed with meatballs, tomato sauce, and mozzarella cheese, and served on a ciabatta roll. A medium-sized meatball parm will add 850 calories, 41.5g fat, 17.5g saturated fat, 85g carbohydrates, 43g protein, and 1,660mg sodium.

Order the small meatball parm, for 440 calories, or cut your sandwich in half and split with a friend or save the rest for later.

Also, if you are watching your sodium intake, keep in mind that most typical sub sandwich meats have quite a bit of sodium. There are lower sodium lunch meats, but you should ask for them specifically when ordering.


The sandwiches menu at Wegmans offers similarly classic choices as the subs menu, just on two slices of bread rather than a fresh-baked roll.

Popular and healthy bread choices include the packaged 100% Whole Wheat Bread (140 calories and 3 grams of fiber per two-slice serving), the 5 Grain 4 Seed Multigrain Bread (140 calories, 3 grams of fiber per slice), and freshly baked Pane Italian Bread (140 calories, 0.78 grams of fiber per two-slice serving).

✓ Veggie Crunch Sandwich

The veggie crunch sandwich at Wegmans is a top choice for vegetarian diners. It packs many veggies on marble rye bread, including lettuce, sprouts, banana peppers, onion, and thousand island dressing. The sandwich provides 360 calories, 15g fat, 2/5g saturated fat, 47g carbohydrates, 10g protein, and 970mg sodium.

✗ Salami on Baguette

The salami on baguette sandwich is the chain's most calorie-packed sandwich. With salami, mayonnaise, tomatoes, and arugula, all on a baked baguette, you'll consume 770 calories, 40g fat, 10g saturated fat, 69g carbohydrates, 31g protein, and 2,480mg sodium.

If you're craving a meat-based and slightly spicy sandwich, choose the turkey BLT. One sandwich has 580 calories, 36g fat, 8g saturated fat, 32g carbohydrates, 30g protein, and 1,880mg sodium.


Wegmans offers two different sizes of salads: large salads that are meant to be full meals and regular salads that can be lighter portions or sides to a meal. Many of the same options are available across the two varieties, and each comes served on a bed of crisp greens.

✓ Regular Garden Salad

A regular garden salad is one of the few vegetarian-friendly salads on the menu. It features romaine lettuce, broccoli, carrots, cucumber, tomatoes, cabbage, and eggs, and comes served with buttermilk ranch dressing. One serving of the salad has 210 calories, 17g fat, 2.5g saturated fat, 10g carbohydrates, 5g protein, and 610mg sodium.

✗ Large Harvest Salad

The large harvest salad is by no means unhealthy, and the large portion would make for an ideal dinner portion. With greens, apricots, apples, craisins, walnuts, blue cheese, cabbage, and vinaigrette dressing, the salad can make for a filling meal. In total, you'll consume 680 calories, 54g fat, 8g saturated fat, 44g carbohydrates, 12g protein, and 500mg sodium.

For fewer calories and fat, the large Cobb salad with chicken may be a satisfying option with 490 calories and 36g fat per serving.

Poke Salads

Alongside a selection of regular salads, Wegmans offers five different varieties of Asian-inspired flavors in poke salads. Served on a bed of greens, these bowls feature chicken, tuna, salmon, shrimp, or vegetable toppings for added protein and fiber.

✓ Beet & Macadamia Poke Salad

The beet and macadamia poke salad is one of the top choices for vegetarian visitors at Wegmans. One portion of the salad provides 250 calories, 16g fat, 2.5g saturated fat, 26g carbohydrates, 6g protein, and 530mg sodium.

✗ Kung Pao Chicken Poke Salad

The Kung Pao chicken poke salad, with avocado, scallions, and crispy toppings, is the least nutritious option from the poke salad list. One serving of this salad has 570 calories, 41g fat, 5g saturated fat, 35g carbohydrates, 20g protein, and 1,040mg sodium.

The other options on the menu each feature seafood proteins, so if you're looking for another flavor combination, the sweet and spicy ahi tuna salad has fewer calories (380) and less fat (24g).

Hot Kettle Soup

With only a select few soup options on its nationwide menu, Wegmans has built flavor into these creamy lunch options. You'll find a chicken soup, tomato soup, broccoli cheddar soup, and a Tuscan lasagna soup on the menu, all available in 8-ounce cup servings.

✓ Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup

One serving of the rotisserie chicken noodle soup contains 120 calories, 4g fat, 1g saturated fat, 11g carbohydrates, 10g protein, and 720mg sodium.

✗ Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Meanwhile the creamy broccoli cheddar soup packs in nearly double the calories than the chicken noodle. One cup of the broccoli cheddar soup has 260 calories, 18g fat, 11g saturated fat, 15g carbohydrates, 10g protein, and 900mg sodium.

The OMG! tomato soup — the other vegetarian soup option on the menu — is a far more nutritious choice. One cup has 130 calories, 7g fat, 3g saturated fat, 14g carbohydrates, 4g protein, and 910mg sodium.

Signature Pizza

Wegmans' pizza counter features the brand's signature pizza options. Choose from a multitude of flavors and creative topping options when ordering. For example, you have the choice of a lasagna pizza, Margherita pizza, meat lover's, mushroom and truffle, buffalo chicken, as well as a create-your-own selection.

As with pizzas at other restaurants, it's best to choose meatless topping combinations and to load up on vegetables instead. Wegmans offers pizzas in small, medium, and large options, so select the proper portion size when ordering.

✓ Margherita Pizza

The signature Margherita pizza features classic flavors — tomato, mozzarella, basil, and olive oil — and is the most nutritious pizza on the menu. A single serving (one slice) of the medium Margherita pizza has 220 calories, 7g fat, 3g saturated fat, 29g carbohydrates, 10g protein, and 550mg sodium.

✗ Lasagna Pizza

The lasagna pizza, with mozzarella and ricotta cheeses, meatballs, sausage, and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is the least nutritious pizza pick. One slice of a medium pizza has 300 calories, 13g fat, 5g saturated fat, 31g carbohydrates, 14g protein, and 780mg sodium.

If craving a meat pizza, the Buffalo chicken pizza has fewer calories and fat per serving. One slice of the pizza provides 280 calories, 13g fat, 4g saturated fat, 29g carbohydrates, 11g protein, and 720mg sodium.

Veggie Crust Pizza

The veggie crust pizza is Wegmans gluten-free pizza option. These pizzas all feature a vegetable crust, helping to cut back on wheat and gluten for any diners who may be allergic. The chain also offers dairy-free mozzarella cheese for those looking to create a vegan pizza.

✓ Margherita Veggie Crust Pizza

As with the signature pizza, the Margherita pizza is also the most nutritious veggie crust pizza. One pizza features four slices and two servings, and a single slice of the Margherita pizza has 200 calories, 9g fat, 3.5g saturated fat, 25g carbohydrates, 7g protein, and 300mg sodium.

✗ Meat Lover's Veggie Crust Pizza

Because the meat lover's veggie crust pizza packs in four different types of meats, as well as cheese, it's the highest in calories and sodium per serving. One slice has 310 calories, 18g fat, 6g saturated fat, 26g carbohydrates, 12g protein, and 730mg sodium.

Choose the pepperoni veggie crust pizza to consume fewer calories and sodium. One slice of this pizza will have 240 calories, 13g fat, 4.5g saturated fat, 25g carbohydrates, 9g protein, and 480mg sodium.

Hot Wings, Tenders & Bites

Grab a quick bite at Wegmans by heading to its hot wings, tenders, and bites bar. You can choose between the three different chicken preparations and eight sauce options. In general choosing a plain preparation (no additional sauce) will be your most nutritious option as it doesn't add more calories and sodium to your meal.

✓ Plain Boneless Bites

The most nutritious choice here is the plain boneless chicken bites. One single chicken bite provides 50 calories, 3g fat, 0.5g saturated fat, 3g carbohydrates, 3g protein, and 170mg sodium.

✗ Garlic Parmesan Wings

When adding sauce to your wings, it may be best to stay away from the garlic parmesan option. One serving of the garlic parmesan wings (4 wings total) has 560 calories, 47g fat, 12g saturated fat, and 1,450mg sodium.

If looking for added flavor, consider choosing the lemon pepper or Old Bay seasoning options — each will make your meal 510 calories.


Through its Meals 2GO prepared foods section, Wegmans offers raw, cooked, and vegetable sushi, as well as "skinny rolls", which are low-carb sushi options that eliminate the rice and instead feature a soy crepe and rice paper wrap.

✓ California Skinny Roll

The California skinny roll features shrimp, imitation crab meat, avocado, and cucumber, all wrapped in rice paper. One package of the California skinny roll sushi provides 130 calories, 3.5g fat, 0g saturated fat, 18g carbohydrates, 8g protein, and 360mg sodium.

✗ Spicy Wild Salmon Volcano Roll

Wegmans' spicy wild salmon volcano roll, with salmon, fried tempura crispies, jalapeno, crunchy shallots, and two different sauces, is the least nutritious option. One package has 400 calories, 17g fat, 3g saturated fat, 43g carbohydrates, 19g protein, and 830mg sodium.

If craving a cooked sushi meal, consider the spicy shrimp roll, which provides 270 calories, or the shrimp tempura roll for 310 calories per package.

Poke Bowls

Wegmans features several selections on the "Asian & Poke" section on the menu, including a mix of poke bowls. With a bed of rice topped with vegetables and chicken, fish, or more vegetables, these options can be nutritious lunch or dinner entrees.

✓ Beet & Macadamia Poke Bowl

Just as with the poke salads, the beet and macadamia poke bowl is the most nutritious choice. Featuring no fish or meat — it's a vegetarian-friendly meal — this bowl has cabbage, beets, and avocado as the main ingredients. In one bowl, you'll consume 430 calories, 16g fat, 2g saturated fat, 69g carbohydrates, 8g protein, and 1,370mg sodium.

✗ Kung Pao Chicken Poke Bowl

The Kung Pao chicken poke bowl, meanwhile, is the least nutritious of all the available poke bowls — it's also the only one with meat as the protein. In total, a full serving of this poke bowl has 750 calories, 41g fat, 5g saturated fat, 79g carbohydrates, 21g protein, and 1,880mg sodium.

Hot Asian Bowls

Wegmans offers the option of five different hot Asian bowls, including a teriyaki black pepper salmon bowl, a Kung Pao chicken bowl, sesame chicken bowl, spicy General Tso's chicken bowl, and a black pepper beef bowl. Each bowl can be mixed with vegetables, rice, or noodles. Choose vegetables to lower the lower the carbohydrate count of your meal and to load up on additional protein.

✓ Teriyaki Black Pepper Salmon with Veggies Bowl

Choose the teriyaki black pepper salmon bowl with veggies to maximize on the nutritional value of this part of the menu. This custom-made dish will provide 460 calories, 25g fat, 4.5g saturated fat, 27g carbohydrates, 28g protein, and 1,790mg sodium.

✗ Kung Pao Chicken with Vegetable Udon Noodles

Meanwhile, choosing the Kung Pao chicken with vegetable udon noodles will provide you with the highest amount of calories and sodium. In total, you'll consume 780 calories, 43g fat, 6g saturated fat, 71g carbohydrates, 30g protein, and 2,170mg sodium.

If craving chicken, consider the sesame chicken bowl with vegetable udon noodles. This dish is slightly lower in calories (710) and sodium (1,840mg).

Hot Pasta

Under the "Italian" part of the Wegmans Meals 2GO menu, you'll find a selection of Italian favorites, including hot pasta and cold pasta to take home and prepare. Each comes served with a bread roll and butter, so eliminate this side to save on both calories and carbohydrates.

✓ Spaghetti & Meatballs

The classic spaghetti and meatballs dish is the most nutritious pick on the Italian menu. Topped with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, you'll consume 620 calories, 34g fat, 11g saturated fat, 60g carbohydrates, 25g protein, and 1,560mg sodium.

✗ Rigatoni with Sunday Sauce

With three different types of meat — short ribs, meatballs, and sausage — as well as rigatoni pasta, sauce, and cheese, it's no wonder the rigatoni with Sunday sauce is the least nutritious. A single serving of this dish (without the roll and butter) is 820 calories, 43g fat, 13g saturated fat, 76g carbohydrates, 44g protein, and 1,890mg sodium. Add in the roll and you'll consume 1,070 calories.

The only other two dishes on this part of the menu — the penne Alfredo with chicken and broccoli, and the penne with sausage, spinach, and vodka blush sauce — are lower in calories and will provide 660 calories and 680 calories, respectively.

Cold Packaged Meals

Under its "Homestyle" menu, Wegmans offers a mix of ready-to-heat cold packaged meals to take home for dinner. These classic flavor combinations include chicken parmesan, chicken French, homestyle meatloaf, roasted turkey, and BBQ pulled pork meals, each coming with two sides.

Choose leaner meats, like the turkey or chicken, for healthy protein and fewer fats, and add in vegetable sides like the green beans for added fiber.

✓ Roasted Turkey Meal

The roasted turkey meal includes oven-roasted sliced turkey breast, gravy, whipped potatoes, and green beans. The full plate will add 430 calories, 22g fat, 9g saturated fat, 28g carbohydrates, 33g protein, and 2,050mg sodium to your daily intake.

✗ Homestyle Meatloaf Meal

The homestyle meatloaf meal, with potatoes and green beans, however, is the least nutritious take-home packaged meal at Wegmans. One serving (which is the full meal package) has 810 calories, 47g fat, 19g saturated fat, 43g carbohydrates, 25g protein, and 2,020mg sodium.

Instead, consider the chicken French meal, with lemon butter sauce, greens, and potato gratin, for 660 calories, or even the BBQ pulled pork meal, which delivers 710 calories in total.

Hot Sides

The Wegmans hot sides menu is filled with classic snackable bites that you'll find any any American-style restaurant. You'll find mozzarella sticks, jalapeno poppers, potato wedges, eggrolls, potstickers, and more. Most of these items are deep-fried options, so selecting the steamed or pan-seared choices may save you on calories and cholesterol.

✓ Pan-Seared Pork Pot Stickers

For a low-calorie appetizer or side, choose the pan-seared pork pot stickers. Served as a set of 6, one serving is a single pot sticker, and has 60 calories, 2.5g fat, 0g saturated fat, 7g carbohydrates, 2g protein, and 180mg sodium.

✗ Seasoned Potato Wedges

Meanwhile, a 4-ounce serving of the seasoned potato wedges from the hot sides menu has 200 calories, 10g fat, 1.5g saturated fat, 26g carbohydrates, 3g protein, and 340mg sodium. For fewer calories and sodium, a serving of the jalapeno poppers or even the vegetable egg rolls is a better pick.

Cold Sides

If you're looking for a cool appetizer, look to the refrigerated section at the Wegmans Meals 2GO for a cold side. You'll find vegetable salads, veggies with dip, potato and macaroni salads, edamame, or gyozas. For the most nutritious addition to your meal, reach for veggie-focused appetizers rather than prepared foods. This will add healthy fiber to your daily diet without loading up on calories and carbohydrates.

✓ Veggie Tray with Ranch Dip

Wegmans offers a veggie tray with ranch dip, and this side-for-two has carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, and celery, as well as a ranch dip. In a single serving, you'll consume 120 calories, 9g fat, 1g saturated fat, 7g carbohydrates, 2g protein, and 190mg sodium.

✗ Homestyle Macaroni Salad

Meanwhile, the homestyle macaroni salad adds sodium, calories, and. cholesterol to your diet. In total, in a 2/3 cup serving of the salad, you'll consume 360 calories, 28g fat, 4g saturated fat, 22g carbohydrates, 5g protein, and 490mg sodium.

If looking for a picnic-ready salad, the homestyle potato salad is a lower-calorie choice. Here, you'll receive 290 calories, 21g fat, 4g saturated fat, 22g carbohydrates, 5g protein, and 500mg sodium.


While you are at the bakery, you might be tempted to try Wegman's cookies, cakes, or pies. As you might imagine, these are less healthy choices. But some choices are better than others.

✓ French Macaron

A single serving from the French macaron tray (two cookies) has 110 calories, 5g fat, 1.5g saturated fat, 13g carbohydrates, 2g protein, and 0mg sodium.

✗ Ultimate Chocolate Indulgence Cookies

Wegmans is famous for its cookies, and the ultimate chocolate indulgence cookies truly live up to their name. A single cookie has 200 calories, 9g fat, 7g saturated fat, 22g carbohydrates, 3g protein, and 50mg sodium.

While there aren't many options as far as cookies go, the ultimate chocolate chip cookies, instead, may be a little bit more nutritious. These cookies pack in 190 calories per cookie, saving you only 10 calories per serving.


The Wegmans bakery is renowned for its baked goods, and the cake selection is often a favorite among diners. These sweet treats are best shared with a friend, or split among a couple separate servings.

✓ Ultimate Plain Cheesecake Slice

For a sweet ending to your meal, choose the ultimate plain cheesecake slice, the lowest-calorie cake on the menu. A single slice has 510 calories, 31g fat, 20g saturated fat, 51g carbohydrates, 8g protein, and 400mg sodium.

✗ Ultimate Carrot Cake Slice

While the name of it may be deceiving, the ultimate carrot cake slice has more sugars and cholesterol than vegetables. In total, one slice has 840 calories, 54g fat, 21g saturated fat, 85g carbohydrates, 8g protein, and 640mg sodium.

To save a few calories and sodium, consider ordering the ultimate white cake slice instead. One slice has 560 calories, 34g fat, 18g saturated fat, 61g carbohydrates, 3g protein, and 310mg sodium.


When it comes to drink selection, Wegmans Meals 2GO offers flavored and regular waters, soda, iced tea, kombucha, milk, and sports drinks. Whether you're dining at home, ordering to go, or eating at a restaurant, water is always the most nutritious and hydrating choice. However, Wegmans does offer a few other options to satisfy taste buds.

✓ Wegmans Aqua

Order the Wegmans aqua, or water, for 0 calories. For more flavor, the store also has Wegmans sparkling water in ginger, lime, lemon, mandarin orange, or mixed berry flavors, all for 0 calories.

✗ Mt. Dew

To lower your sugar intake, it's best to stay away from the soda counter, and the Mt. Dew in particular. The 20-ounce bottle provides 290 calories, 0g fat, 77g carbohydrates, 0g protein, 85mg sodium, and 73g sugars.

Diet-Specific Options

The Wegmans Meals 2GO menu offers choices for gluten-free, low-fat, low-sodium, vegetarian, and vegan diets, but does not have many choices for low-carb, low-FODMAP, or diabetes-friendly meals.

  • Edamame
  • Margherita Pizza
  • California Skinny Roll
  • Rainbow Skinny Roll
  • Chicken Gyoza

Stick to a low-fat diet by ordering the California skinny roll from the sushi counter. A full serving (the entire tray) will deliver only 3.5g fat.

It's possible to dine on a low-sodium diet at Wegmans, though you may gave to get creative. Your best bet is to order from the sides menu and choose the veggie tray with ranch dip. A single serving has only 190mg sodium.


  • Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Sub
  • Veggie Crunch Sandwich
  • OMG! Tomato Soup
  • Pesto, Tomato & Spinach Veggie Crust Pizza
  • Margherita Veggie Crust Pizza

Wegmans has made it simple for vegetarians to enjoy its wide menu. With multiple vegetarian-friendly items per category, you'll be able to find something that fits your cravings. For a nutritious lunch or dinner, choose the pesto, tomato, and spinach veggie crust pizza.


  • Vegan Mushroom, Spinach and Artichoke Veggie Crust Pizza
  • Edamame
  • Beet & Macadamia Poke Salad

Vegans can enjoy a few select items at Wegmans, but it's best to read nutrition labels on the foods you're eyeing to make sure there are no animal byproducts included. Luckily, the vegan mushroom, spinach, and artichoke veggie crust pizza is an easy choice. It's made with veggies, an all-vegetable crust, and dairy-free vegan cheese.

Food Allergies and Safety

While Wegmans offers many different types of foods in its Meals 2GO dining halls, if you're dining with allergies, it's always best to ask the store if any possible contamination occurred.

The restaurant offers a "Made with No Gluten" menu, but diners with peanut, fish, milk, egg, nut, soy, and shellfish allergies should take extra precaution to ask if their meals were prepared with or in the presence of any allergens.

A Word From Verywell

One of the most appealing things about shopping at Wegmans is the open air design of the markets. The atmosphere makes spending time there feel more like a shopping experience rather than a chore. From a health perspective, consumers may benefit. If you enjoy the shopping environment, you may take extra time to evaluate different foods and make better choices.

Use the company's website and in-store labeling to get nutritional information so that you buy the best foods for your long-term health. The bright yellow "Food You Feel Good About" label is applied to foods that are free from high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, and meet other health guidelines. And easy-to-spot "dots" on Wegmans Brand products indicate foods that provide health benefits. For example, you might see a colored dot on foods that are low in sodium, high in fiber, or made with whole grains.

But it is also important to remember that just simply shopping at Wegmans (or any grocery store with a healthy reputation) does not change your health. Just because you buy a food at Wegmans doesn't make it more nutritious than a food you might buy at a more crowded or busy store down the street. Make sure you take the time to gather information and make the smartest choices for long-term wellness no matter where you shop.
