Watch the Salad you Choose

I just discovered this article on Yahoo Health “When is a Salad Not a Healthy Choice?

It’s amazing that some salads at restaurants have more calories and fat than a McDonald’s Big Mac! YIKES! For example –

# Macaroni Grill’s Chicken Caesar Salad® — 920 calories and 69 grams of fat
# Panera’s Bistro Steak Salad® — 630 calories and 58 grams of fat
# Applebee’s Grilled Steak Caesar Salad® — 1,190 calories and 75 grams of fat

  1. I found that out when I was doing Weight Watchers. I was shocked to see how high in fat and calories some salads were. Same thing with wraps. You have to be really careful.

  2. And always get the dressing on the side. For me I use 1/4 of what they would normally put on the salad.
