Mickey D's Newest Salad Creation!
Fast Food Updates...
Be on the lookout for a brand new Asian Chicken Salad from McDonald's. It's got grilled chicken, mandarin oranges, snow peas, edamame and toasted almonds. And even containing all that, it still has under 400 calories (even if you include the Newman's Own low fat sesame ginger dressing). Get this salad as part of a McD's "Adult Happy Meal" and you'll also receive a 15 minute workout DVD. Also hot in the world of fast food? Wendy's has a new line of Frescata deli sandwiches. Made with fresh meats like turkey and ham, Frescatas are giving Wendy's fans a whole lot more to choose from. With a little tweaking (hold the mayo, lose the cheese, etc.), these super sandwiches can be made to clock in at under 400 calories. There's even a way you can "personalize" 'em. See how much fat and calories you can save by ditching certain ingredients. Check it out here!
