When you think salad, you probably think healthy. Generally, salads ARE healthier than a burger and fries. But we do things to salads that ruin the healthy status of our field of greens. Lots of things. One at a time, lest we get over whelmed. Since they’re all bad, we’ll go in no particular order.
How to Ruin a Salad #3: Fried Chicken
I’m not talking here about out-of-a-bucket type fried chicken. If you’re putting that on a salad, we’ve got bigger problems. No, I’m referring to the breaded and fried chicken breast cut into strips and laid a top your “healthy” lunch.
You wouldn’t consider a fried chicken breast a healthy lunch. Putting salad greens under it doesn’t change that equation. A medium fried chicken breast, with no skin, adds 500 calories. You could have a slice of pizza instead.
Go for grilled chicken and keep your healthy lunch just that.
