    Default When is a Salad Not a Healthy Choice?

    When is a Salad Not a Healthy Choice?
    Posted by Christine McKinney, M.S., R.D., C.D.E.


    More and more restaurants and fast food joints are carrying a variety of salads.

    That's a good thing, right? Well, it can be, but don't make a quick ruling on that. It's true that vegetables are the lowest-calorie food group; the problem is that salads aren't just composed of vegetables anymore.

    Because not all salads are made the same, it takes some work by the consumer to figure out which restaurant salads are healthy choices. Let's compare the fat and calories in a few salads made by popular food outlets.

    Taco Bell's Fiesta Salad® — 840 calories and 45 grams of fat
    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

    Compare the salads above to the infamous McDonald's Big Mac®, which has 540 calories and 29 grams of fat.

    I sense a new fad......the Big Mac diet!

    Actually, I thought the Big Mac had over 1000 calories.

    Gee good thing I hate salads. J/K!

    That's surprising about the Big Mac tho. I was sure it was higher calories than that.

    A super-sized Big Mac meal (including fries/drink) is almost 1500 calories...

    People on Atkins LOVE salads cos the whole shebang can go on there and you're not cheating. Fried onions, bacon bits, cheese, mayo... all classed as bad foods.
