Favorite salad (from chain restaurant)



Recommended Posts

Today I tried Panara Breads Cobb salad. I did not like the green goddess dressing but my aunt absolutely loved it. I ate my sandwich and brought the salad home to eat with my bolthouse farms yogurt ranch and it was delicious. I got half sandwich and half salad and that was enough for lunch and dinner. I also like chick fila’s market and south west salads and recently tried Wendy’s apple pecan salad which was okay but the second time it gave me an upset stomach which was weird. Where else can I get a good salad. I am looking for places that I can go with others that are not on a diet.

I really like the apple pecan salad at Wendys too. Other favorites are the Fuji Apple chicken salad at Panera and I really like the Protein bowls at Subway with rotisserie chicken. I don’t know if you’ve got a Culver’s near you but their salads are also really good.

Hummm. I never would have thought about subway having salads (or Protein bowls). I will have to check that out. On their website I see “no bready bowls” I assume that’s them.

I like Panera for salads and the bowls from chipotle. The pollo asado that chipotle has out now is yummy. The salads at Chick-fil-A are pretty good too.

What is the pollo asado exactly? I seen it on the menu but wasn’t really sure. I have never been to chipotle. I heard that their tacos are really good.

The pollo asado is chicken with garlic, lime, peppers and cilantro. I had it on a taco one day. You can order 1 taco at my chipotle it was only $3.50 for my meal - a bargain for chipotle. When I get the bowl, I can get 3 meals out of it, so I guess that’s a bargain too. :)

Zaxby's Buffalo Blue Zalad. I get it with grilled chicken buffaloed, instead of the fried. Ngl, the fried tastes good, but the grilled is healthier.

I love Moe's grilled chicken salad. You can customize it as far as what goes in it and which dressing. I get romaine, pico de gallo, black Beans, black olives, cilantro and jalapenos and shredded cheese with chipotle ranch dressing.

Cheesecake Factory has Skinnylicious salads. I like the Asian Chicken and Skinnylicious Mexican Tortilla salad. And their Thai Chicken salad. Thai salad isn't Skinnylicious.

Ooh I will have to ask my best friend that lives in a little bit bigger city if she has any of those restaurants, especially Zaxby’s because that Buffalo salad sounds delicious. Is the chipotle ranch at Moe’s real spicy? I love ranch but I’m more of a mild type for salsa or wings or whatever. Those skinnylicious salads sound interesting too. If you like Thai salad the tropical smoothie cafe had one that I thought was pretty good (I must confess it was my first ever Thai anything though so you can take that with a grain of salt).

The Moe's salad isn't spicy. I mean the chicken and dressing isn't. The way I get the salad made is spicy because I ask for jalapenos. Think of Moe's like a subway. They customize your order for you. You choose what goes in your salad, burrito, nachos, etc.

I'm not sure if I have a Tropical Smoothie Cafe near me. I'll have to check.

There’s a tropical smoothie near me. I’m going to check it out. I didn’t know they had food too.

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️

      I started my 10 day pre op diet yesterday I need flavor!! I'm not big on the chocolate protein shakes so I just got to use up what I have was thinking about freezing it to make it like a ice cream so its something I can chew a little. Idk this is hard but I know I can do it just need to find new things to try

        You can try. I've read other people have had good results with protein-shake popsicles, etc. My personal experience with it? Sucked.

        I tried making 'fudgesicles' with a couple different flavors of a premade shake, as well as a protein powder I blended myself and all of them came out revolting? The powder ones, all the protein sunk to the middle; the premade shakes, the popsicle had a disgusting texture and the protein seemed to leave a weird fluffy film on the outside? I couldn't stomach it.

        Maybe look into flavoring additives? I was able to have sugar-free coffee /soda syrup flavorings, sugar-free drink flavorings and baking additives like almond, rum or pepperment extract. The extracts helped me the most as they added no extra sweetener.

        On the other hand, if you can get your hands on an unflavored/unsweetened protein powder, the syrup flavorings are perfect. I love to use Boost "Just Protein" (which is unflavored) with milk and a Chai-flavored sugarfree syrup.

        Good luck!
