I went out to eat after a funeral yesterday and have been racking my brain and computer to find the nutrition info on a Grilled Chicken Salad from Cracker Barrel. I spent hours trying to narrow it down but wasn't getting anywhere.
The salad I ate was a icburg greens (about 2 cups chopped) tomatoe (1/4 chuncked) croutons ( ate only 5 and they were toasted) cheddar cheese ( 1/8 cup picked around) grilled chicken (1 oz chopped) boiled egg (half). Did not eat the onions and did not put dressing on it.
I would really like to know how many calories that was. Also... do they splash their salads with fat like some resturaunts do?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and love to all my fellow dieters out there.

I like the 220 better than that 620 any day. Haha! That is way over budget on calories compared to what I ate all day. Ugh!
I wanna cry! I still lost 1 pound. Maybe I could chalk it up to grievance food... hahaha! Not that a funeral for a great friend is anything to laugh about but... I still have to behave on my diet either way.

Caesar is typically a high calorie choice. It tends to be smothered in dressing, cheese, and croutons.

Best thing you can do when ordering any salad is get the dressing on the side. Croutons are a real killer too. But under the circumstances, I wouldn't worry about it. Lesson learned, now you know for next time Smile

Well it was grilled chicken on the salad and there was dressing packets given but not used. I chose the dry option instead of drowning it in dressing.
Yes it is a great lesson learned. Didn't eat much the rest of the day though. I wasn't feeling well. However... I more than made up for it today. Had too much fat intake and feel very bloated. Hope the water binge I plan to have will flush it out! It wasn't a huge amount of food but was very unhealthy. Loved the rice cakes though. Gonna buy some for home. (Went to a church picnic).

Thank you everyone for the insight and help. Love to all my fellow dieters! Smile

You're post made me think of the time that I went into Cracker Barrel about 4 months ago. I asked the waiter if they had info on the calories in the meals or whether he knew which meals were low cal. He told me that Cracker Barrel does not post calories because people who are dieting shouldn't be in the restaurant in the first place. Even though it seems a bit rude of him, I had to laugh-at least he was honest. LOL
