Restaurant Salads – The Real Problem Is The Ranch Dressing

If you think you are getting a light, healthy bowl of greens when you are eating a restaurant salad you may want to take a closer look.

While many restaurants offer somewhat healthy options (Chili’s Grilled Chicken Salad has 38 grams of protein, but skip the cheese and ask for the dressing on the side) many restaurant salads are loaded with fried chicken, refined carbs and sugar, tons of cheese and nuts. So, when you have to make a choice, think smart and substitute fried chicken strips for grilled and skip the ranch dressing!
