“I am counting my calories; Salad all the way”

We all have been there to be honest. Continuous information explosion over the years on how salad is great for detox, a great source of complex carbs and fibre has led us to think that salad is low in calories. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Why I say that?

Let us take a look at the typical salads we are served at restaurants worldwide:

  1. Waldorf Chicken Salad – 1370 Calories
  2. Chipotle Yucatan Chicken Salad – 860 Calories
  3. Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad – 1100 Calories
  4. Fried Chicken Salad – 1120 Calories
  5. Santa Fe Chicken Salad – 1280 Calories
  6. Crispy Chicken Tender Salad – 1450 Calories
  7. Quesadilla Explosion Salad – 1250 Calories
  8. Carolina Chicken Salad – 1100 Calories
  9. Chicken and Bacon Caesar Salad – 830 Calories
  10. Mezze Vegetarian Salad – 1292 Calories
