Salads for lunch...

Today I had a salad, from Wendy's, as my lunch meal. It's a decent salad, consists of about 75% iceberg lettuce, a few leaves of green lettuce, grilled chicken, bacon, tomatoes and cheese. It's actually a very sound lunch. I did add the croutons and used about 1/2 of the salad dressing packet they provided.

As my friend Brad once said (, "Americans don't like salad, they just like salad dressing." It's the salad dressing that kills the healthy lunch. One full packet of dressing has 40% of our recommended fat (26g), only 4% carbs (11g, 10 grams are sugar), 15% of our sodium (350mg), and 8% of the cholestorol intake (25mg).

I'm glad I used only 1/2 the least I feel like I ate pretty healthy. :)
