Okay, pretend you are out to lunch at a restaurant and didn't have time to look up the nutritional info online. You have decided on a salad. Below are the choices and you have to order and eat it AS IS. What do you think is the best choice and which is the worst choice (only taking calories into consideration).
This are salads from an actual restaurant - and I have the nutritional info, so I'll be back to post the answers later:
