People who are trying to eat healthier often choose salad as a meal option because they think it will help them to lose or maintain a healthy weight. But many times the salad that they make at home or that they order in a restaurant is full of fat and high in calories. Exactly how many calories are in a salad? Numbers vary greatly. A basic iceberg lettuce salad with tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, red pepper, and low or zero-calorie dressing (such as lemon juice or vinegar) has about 125 calories. But many salads that you see on restaurant menus have more. Here are a few numbers to give you an idea. 

  • Cobb salad: 1130 calories
  • Greek salad: 500 calories
  • Grilled chicken caesar salad: 770 calories
  • Oriental chicken salad with crispy chicken: 1440 calories
  • Taco salad: 830 calories

Of course, the ingredients and the dressing you choose will change your salad calories. Serving size matters, as well.   Class Details Here: https://chairdanceshakyra.eventbrite.com
