Estimating calories in a chef salad
Tuesday, October 02, 2012
I posted this on the message boards, but I thought one of you might have some suggestions too! I am craving salad, particularly chef salads, but I know they are a lot higher in calories than one would assume. But how much? I don't know!
Does anyone have any suggestions for estimating the calories in a chef salad? There is one at a restaurant in town which is delicious, but they don't have nutritional information available. I can take my measuring spoon to measure out the dressing, but I am not sure how to guesstimate the meats and cheeses. Any suggestions?
This is the description from the menu: "Crispy greens topped with turkey, ham, cheddar and swiss, tomatoes, cucumber, radishes, croutons, eggs and your choice of dressing." It's a pretty huge salad, so I'm sure it's high, but I'd just like some suggestions on how to put it in my tracker.
