Yesterday was our first day of the season at the beach. This usually means a lot of preparation, a little anxiety, and an exhausting amount of fun.
…And then I have to figure out dinner. With nothing at home and restaurants closed for Memorial Day, my husband suggested McDonald’s. “Haven’t you read the disturbing facts?” I ask. Pink slime and chemically fortified fries that never go bad. “I want a salad!”
I put up a little fight, then realized I was so hungry I could eat 20 pink slime nuggets, no prob. So I looked up the menu on my phone to see the salads. I think I found a great choice!
I had the Premium Southwest Salad with Grilled Chicken. I asked for no shredded cheese to cut calories and because I don’t love cheese on my salads. The dressing comes on the side, so I didn’t use the whole Newman’s Own packet. Therefore, the calorie count was no more than 360! And I was totally satisfied! (Full disclosure: I had a few of my husband’s fries, too.) It was so yummy too, with corn, black beans, little jalapeño bits and crunchy tortilla strips.
I was not compensated for this post and I didn’t get anything free.
