Drive-thru Rut?

There are times you have to hit a drive-thru. It happens. A new meal that Chick-fil-a is serving is Chick-fil-a Grilled Market Salad. It is Food Snob approved.

I actually do not like eating a salad when I am out, but this one is super yummy! Loaded with berries and apples and sprinkled with blue cheese, it has enough flavor to satisfy any appetite. Topped with grilled chicken it comes in as a low-fat, low-calorie option. Only 180 calories and a big portion you can easily say yes.

Warning: It does come with granola and roasted nut blend on the side that are not included in the caloric count. The granola is 60 calories and the nuts are 80 calories. Compared to a chicken sammy this is still a great option and sprinkle away! The recommended dressing is Zesty Apple Cider vinaigrette, but beware if you use the whole packet it is over 200 calories. A light drizzle would go a long way since there is already so much flavor. You could also pick out some blue cheese to help make up the difference if you really want to. Omit the chicken and you have a vegetarian option and fewer calories.

This meal has anti-oxidants, iron, lean protein, good fats, and great flavor. I would obviously like to see organic produce, but this is fast food after all. Rating: 8.5/10
