Can salads really make you fat?

They sure can. With some restaurant salads totalling 1400 calories, you can pack on extra pounds fast. Salads are thought to be the healthy option to a lot of people, but here’s a tip: check those nutrition facts before ordering. Chili’s Quesadilla Explosion salad is a whopping 1400 calories. For one salad! To calculate the calories in your favorite salad, you can use Fitness magazine’s new “Salad Calorie Counter” to be sure you are making a healthy choice: http://www.fitnessmagazine.com/recipes/build-a-salad/

About notyouraveragefoodie

Not your average foodie, indeed. I have a Masters Degree in Dietetics and am currently employed as a Registered Dietitian at a nationally renown clinic. I created this blog to entertain and inform foodies everywhere. I am a busy, working woman battling the same food issues most people struggle with every day. Possessing the knowledge about food is the easy part. Putting it into practice... that’s where it gets tricky. I consider myself obsessed with food –– how it looks, how it smells, how it tastes, even how it makes me feel. My hope is to provide recipes, tips & tricks each day, to help foodies everywhere eat like a dietitian. I will be sharing my tips & tricks in the kitchen, providing delicious recipes, and helping foodies everywhere navigate through the supermarket, eating out, preparing foods at home, and surviving tricky eating situations whenever they arise.
