SALAD BY MEALFIT!

We know a lot of you like to grab salads, because you assume all are “healthy” at fast food joints. I mean they look it, so of course they have to be. Also, you don’t really pay attention to the price, or what you get because it is quick. Plus, if it’s healthy we automatically think it’s suppose to be priced high. Have you ever stopped to think about the salad that fast food places serve you though? What really goes in them?
THERE’S MORE TO YOUR SALAD THAN MEETS THE EYE AT FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS
A lot of people like to order the salad because they want to “eat light” .However, you have to be careful, because the salad you just ordered could be around 1,700 calories or more. It is also probably loaded with tons of preservatives, sodium, sugar, and harmful chemicals depending on what is on it. To be honest no lettuce looks that good when, it’s that old unless.These days, many fast-food chains offer salads. But that doesn’t mean you could name much of what goes into one. How about propylene glycol? Many chains dust their salads with that chemical to keep the leaves crisp. It’s considered safe for consumption — and can also be found in antifreeze and sexual lubricants.
Yup, not kidding. Salads are total fat (and sugar) traps! Dressings can be bursting with calories, and then to top it off, the cheese, candied nuts, dried fruit, whatever else that may seem like a “light choice” is actually setting you back more than you would think!
MEAT IS CHEMICALLY CLEANED…
Chemicals we normally associate with cleaning are purposefully put into fast-food meat. Why? Compounds like ammonium hydroxide can damage e. coli and other organisms. They also lower the acidity of meats and other foods, making it difficult for pathogens to survive. Is the practice safe? The USDA says yes. Does the idea of eating chemically washed meat in your salad sound good?
