Ready to be shocked and horrified by some salad stats? Check out these
alarming nutritionals and beware...
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.
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
Taco Bell Fiesta Taco Salad w/Spicy Avocado Ranch Dressing - 910 calories,
Wendy's Garden Sensations, Southwest Taco Salad w/Ancho Chipotle Ranch
Dressing - 680 calories, 39g fat
Steak 'n Shake Grilled Chicken Taco Salad w/Light Ranch Dressing - 1,082
calories, 82g fat
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!
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...
McDonald's Asian Salad With Grilled Chicken, no dressing - 300 calories, 10g
Denny's Fit Fare Grilled Chicken Breast Salad, no dressing - 320 calories,
Subway Turkey Breast Salad, no dressing or croutons - 110 calories, 2.5g fat
Burger King Tendergrill Chicken Garden Salad, no dressing or croutons - 240
calories, 9g fat
