I have the good fortune to be in like Flynn with The Motherhood, and when The Motherhood wants to take you out to lunch? Of course you go! The short people and I met up with some lovely blogger mamas and their short people.
All the mamas ordered the new Berry Almond Chicken Salad, named quite cleverly after the berries, almonds, and chicken that sit on top of the salad.
The salad was alright. I need to come clean with you, I don't order salads from fast food restaurants. I just don't, mostly because I don't like store-bought salad dressing. However. The chicken and almond combination was good; the chicken was moist and the almonds were salty and crunchy, which are two of my favorite qualities in a food item. And the green part of the salad was good, too. Wendy's uses real! actual! dark green lettuces, which are three of my favorite qualities in a lettuce leaf. There was a generous handful of blueberries, and one pathetic strawberry cut into quarters. The strawberry was but an overripe shadow of its former self, and Henry pecked it off my plate faster than, ummm, something that pecks things really fast.
For a salad that comes with fat free dressing, it packed a lot of fat - 16 grams and 150 calories, also 31 grams of sugar, and a whopping 1300 milligrams of sodium.
I had a superty fancy Wild Berry Tea, which rolls in at 140 calories, 15 milligrams of sodium and 28 grams of sugar, which really makes it Wild Berry Non-Carbonated Soda, or Wild Berry High Fructose Tea-ish.
My meal cost about $10, which is way more than I'd normally spend on lunch out. I'm a burger and fries girl, and after checking with the nutrition information on the Wendy's website, I think I'll stick with a double stack and a root beer. Link to Wendy's nutrition information
