Food Villains #10: Loaded "Salads"

July 19, 2014 1 min read

We've all seen the "salad" bar at our local eateries--trays filled with bacon bits, cheese, ham, sausage, and cold pasta salad. There's Ranch, Caesar, Blue Cheese, and Thousand Island dressings, and a dozen filling things that turn your salad into something way more filling and higher in calories than it should be. A traditional salad should consist of vegetables, perhaps dressed with either a cream or vinegar-based dressing. However, once you start adding to your salad, it becomes a loaded dish that contains WAY more calories, fat, and oil than it should. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Source: browneyedbaker.com[/caption] For example, check out On the Border's Grande Taco Salad with Taco Beef:
  • 1,600 calories
  • 116 grams of fat
  • 2,640 mg of sodium
That's more fat and sodium than you should eat in a day, and 75% of your daily calorie intake. And that's just with a honey mustard dressing! Imagine how much higher that would go if you decided on Ranch or Caesar! No, loaded "salads" are anywhere near as healthy as you might think. My advice: Stick with a garden salad.(Get rid of the toppings, make it a vinaigrette or house dressing, and limit the protein/fat content in your "salad".)   Featured Image Source: sunset.com Resources: http://eatthis.menshealth.com/slideshow/30-worst-foods-america
