Salad or wrap? Wrap or salad? Which one and how do you choose? And are they really doing your body good?
Well, it depends ultimately on what you're looking for. Salads are light and refreshing meals that don't make you feel guilty...right? Well you may be surprised to find the calorie counts to be high and health ratings low in some of your favorite salads. This is largely due to the high-fat content in the dressings that make them taste sooooo good! For the amount of dressing added to these 'healthy' salads from our favorite restaurants, calories can skyrocket upwards of 300 calories alone! Not only that, but add the cheese, nuts, dried fruits, meats protein, boiled egg, croutons, etc., and your healthy-option-salad is running neck-and-neck with, if not exceeding the calorie count of your average cheese burger combo meal.
