It’s a New Year and Subway restaurants and the American Heart Association are encouraging consumers to add just one extra “cup of color” to their daily diet in 2017, which can help improve the health of all Americans. Subway offers millions of handcrafted sandwich and salad combinations and 10 varieties of vegetables to its guests, from cucumbers to spinach to green peppers, helping guests make their subs more colorful and fill up the right way—making for a New Year’s resolution that’s easy to stick to.

Subway and the AHA launched +color, an on-going initiative focusing on the positive health impact of fruits and vegetables and encouraging Americans to add more color to their diets. It’s estimated that if Americans ate the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables every day, approximately 39,900 deaths would be prevented from cardiovascular diseases, stroke and diabetes and $7.6 billion in medical costs could be saved annually.
