Bob Evans salad?! Wtf?

I went to Bob Evans today. I didn't plan ahead. Shame on me I know. I thought I was sick to death of grilled chicken. I thought ok... well I am going to order the lunch portion of the wildfire chicken salad and ask for the chicken grilled. I figured that couldnt be THAT bad after all its a small portion of grilled ckn with maybe a tbs of bbq, a few tortilla strips, tomatoes, lettuce, and a bit of dressing. I get home and look on the website and its 26 freakin grams of fat! What the hell? UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A full serving of the dressing is only 9 grams of fat and I didnt eat hardly any of it. It ruined my Sunday. I am pissed. Now I am hungry and I don't want to eat anything else because I am determined when I weigh tomorrow that scale is going down. Grrrrrr.....

Anyone else ever do something like that? Frustrating!

Yes!! Reminds me of my first outing to Baja Fresh. It all sounds so harmless, and even the name suggests 'good for you' (marketing genius) so I ordered some vegetarian burrito. I knew enough to only eat half, but wow!! And ugh. And grrr...

For me, it just showed how you can be well versed in this calorie/nutrition stuff and still be blown away by restaurant foods!

Panera, Corner Bakery, and all those sandwich-type salads shocked me the same way! It shouldnt be called salad if its not healthy :)

got a beautiful spinach pecan goat chesse salad at an italian place (only healthy option) "dressing on the side" - - GOOD THING TOO!- the "dressing was a giant BOWL of nice tomatoes and red onions SWIMMMING in a GRAVY of balsamic glucososugarsyrup sauce - nasty - I just tried to rescue those poor veggis out of there without getting too much of that crap into my system..
