Good morning peeps!
We are going to start the week with an eating out tip - what is the difference between the 2 salads below? 🤔
When trying to lose weight we must look at the little details - below is a chicken salad i ordered during the week. `i always ask for dressing on the side, why? the dressing can easily bring the calories up sky high!! Let me break it down - let's say an average 150g chicken breast is around 250calories then we add a nice green salad, maybe with some tomatoes, cucumbers etc- let's say 150 calories. So our salad is now 400 calories💪, average count for a nice salad..... now let's add the dressing
In the one i ordered it had feta cheese - about 50g = 130 calories roughly😯😯
Caesar dressing let's say 30g = 163 calories
olive oil around 2 tbsp = 80 calories
let's add it all up ....My salad of 400 calories + 130 + 163 + 80 calories = ouch !! it is now 773 calories!!😫😫😫 As you can see all these hidden calories that you might not be accounting for! thinking you are eating something nice and healthy because it's a salad! don't be fooled - know what you are eating!😫
