25 insanely delicious ways to use your SmartPoints® at Panera Bread

Find out how all your faves (including that creamy broccoli cheddar soup) fit into your Budget.

Everyone knows that the best part about running errands is refueling at Panera Bread. (Oh, and if you don't dream of their soup bread bowls and Asian seasame chicken salad? You're missing out!)

While said bread bowl, to name one menu item, can make quite a dent in your daily SmartPoints®, it can easily fit into your Budget with a little bit of planning—with myWW, nothing is off the menu! Say you eat a low-SmartPoints breakfast and then snack on tasty ZeroPoint™ and low-SmartPoints snacks, like fresh fruit and veggies, hard-boiled eggs, and non-fat yogurt—or even a scoop of everyone's favorite chicken salad—to enjoy between meals. That frees up your daily SmartPoints so you can spend them however you'd like when you visit Panera Bread.

With meal options that fit into every Budget, it’s easy to see why the bakery-café is one of the top restaurants for WW members. Discover the SmartPoints value of some of your favorite eats with this handy guide:
