These Restaurant Salads Have More Calories than Fast Food!

When I go out to eat, which I do very often, I always feel better about myself when I order a salad or grilled chicken of some sort…but I guess I should feel worse!

I decided I would look up the nutritional information on some of the salads I order at chain restaurants and compare the calorie intake on them to McDonald’s and Burger King!

I was extremely surprised to find out the amount of calories that I actually have been consuming.

Nutritional Facts: Applebee’s, Friday’s, McDonald’s, Burger King, and The Cheesecake Factory.
