Cheesecake factory menu

I found a salad that had more calories than cheesecake. 1 serving Sheila's chicken avocado salad. 1850 calories, 145g carbs, 85g fat and 75g Protein

I blame it on those cashews and the avocado. It probably has a whole chicken of meat as well 😂

Yep! I was just about to say that! Looks like there's carrot in there too...and whatever things are on top, probably tortilla strips. I'd be dumping those off LOL

Who goes to the cheesecake factory to eat healthy???? **laughing at myself** They actually had a wonderful health minded menu. I had the skinnylicious grilled salmon.

While that is an extreme example, it is not unusual for restaurant entree salads to be calorie heavy, usually over 1000; As with a basic potato which is fundamentally a healthy food and low/moderate calories, commercially the seem to feel the neeg=d to load them up with a lot of calorie rich extras to make them sellable. The dressings alone can easily add 3-500+ calories with the amount that gets glopped on. You can probably do a similar salad at home with 1/3 the calories - and that would still be much more than we could normally eat.
