why does mcdonalds take a perfectly good idea and ruin it by adding calories?
i ordered the new fruit & walnut salad today thinking mmm.. apples and grapes and walnuts, and a low-fat yogurt dip. sounds healthy – looks healthy in the picture. even their description makes it sounds healthy.
you wouldn’t think that this little healthy fruit salad packs 310 calories and 13g of fat. this, my friends, is the SAME amount of calories and fat as a regular cheeseburger, with less protein and more carbs.
they could have shaved 40 calories off of the salad by using regular walnuts instead of candied.
add this to my 400 calorie grilled chicken sandwich (i wanted a salad, but they were out of lettuce) and i would have been better off getting a cheeseburger and regular order of fries!
lesson learned – always check the nutritional information on fast food items BEFORE ordering them!
