Works For Me Wednesday: Salads aren't always the best choice at restaurants

My son sent me this article comparing several restaurant salads with their burgers. For example, amazingly, Wendy's Garden Sensations Mandarin Chicken Salad has more calories, carbs, sugar, sodium and fat than their 1/4 lb. Double Stack.

Many restaurants have nutrition information on their web sites, easily found by G**gling the name of the restaurant. It pays to check out the details if you're dieting or having to watch any of those elements in your diet.
