Ready to be shocked and horrified by some salad stats? Check out these alarming nutritionals and beware...
Feast Your Eyes on 76g of Fat!
A Chili's Nightmare...
Next time you're at Chili's, don't think you're doing yourself any favors by ordering a Chicken Caesar. That nasty excuse for a salad squeezes in 1,010 calories and 76 grams of fat. And that's without the crackers. You'd be better off with the Guiltless Grill Chicken Platter. It's more filling, and it has a more reasonable 580 calories and 9 grams of fat. Replace the rice with some salad greens to save around 200 calories!
Craving steak at the 'Bees? You'd be a fool to request their Steakhouse Salad. They're pretty hush-hush about the nutritional details of this salad, but their last stab at a steak salad, the Grilled Steak Caesar, had 1,191 ridiculous calories and over 75 grams of fat. Yikes! Instead of a steak salad, grab yourself an order of Teriyaki Steak and Shrimp Skewers. Those tasty sticks only have 370 calories and 7 grams of fat. Not bad! BTW, if you really want a salad there, go for the Grilled Shrimp Skewer Salad. Even if you have the dressing, you'll take in only 210 calories and 2 grams of fat.
A Huge Mis-Steak!
Costco'll Cost Ya...
Feeling faint at Costco? Don't scarf down a Chicken Caesar there. That thing contains 756 calories and an alarming 61 grams of fat. Holy moly! Even their BBQ pork sandwich has only 306 calories and 9.5 grams of fat. Your best bet might be to grab yourself a serving of their nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt. That stuff is fat-free and only has about 24 calories per ounce. A small serving of that should keep you satisfied long enough to finish your shopping and head home for a sensible meal.
Check out the alarming stats on these taco salad fiascos (stats include all the fixins')...
On The Border Grande Beef Taco Salad, w/Ranch Dressing - 1,670 calories, 125g fat (EEEEKS!)
**HG Tip: If you NEED a taco salad, stick with chicken and avoid tortilla bowls, tortilla strips, guacamole, sour cream and cheese. And substitute salsa for dressing!
A Fatty Fiesta!
There's LOTS Worse Than the Wiqui Waqui...
HG NIGHTMARE...RUN SCREAMING FROM THESE SALADS!!!!
If you happen to live in California, Nevada or Arizona (or plan to visit there soon) and find yourself at an Islands restaurant, avoid the Kaanapali Kobb salad if it's the last thing you ever do. That monstrosity has 1,520 calories and 116 grams of fat! Their China Coast salad has 1,130 calories and 73 grams of fat! Their Wiqui Waqui BBQ Chicken Salad seems like a calorie bargain at just 960 and 53 grams of fat (um, just kidding). Are we the only ones who think salad stats like these should be illegal?
We like these. Just remember to read dressing packets carefully...
