Quick Bites: Salata

A few weeks ago, we began our Quick Bites series with Chick-fil-a. In that post, we discussed some parameters to set when eating out. Salata is one of my favorite places to eat, and it seems like they have locations popping up all over! I love being able to choose exactly the type of salad I want to eat, and they have plenty of options to get creative. Salads can be a great way to increase fruit and vegetable consumption, but if you are not careful, a salad may have more calories and fat grams than a hamburger! It’s important to know what to choose and what to avoid when making a salad at Salata to ensure you are actually consuming a healthy dish. You can also use these recommendations as general guidelines when consuming a salad at any eating establishment or at your own home! I have broken the list down into menu items to consider and those to avoid if possible. Remember, these are just suggestions and there may be items that I have not listed that are acceptable within reason. The portions of each topping are small (typically about 1 oz), but all of the nutritionals for a salad can add up quickly!
