How to Ruin a Salad #3

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.

  1. Gotta love the “healthy” choice of lettuce with fried chicken, croutons, cheese, and ranch dressing!
