Wendy’s has 4 new salad offerings this summer. And since they all sounded fantastic, I thought that I would try them.
But, before I made any purchases, I checked them out on line just to see what they might be hiding. Sure enough, the sodium is VERY high in all of them; 1,500 mg or higher! And since the recommended daily limit is 2,000, you have just about hit your limit in just one meal. In short, if I ate one of those salads for lunch, I would be gulping water all afternoon.
But why is the sodium so high I wondered? Is the chicken that salty? Then, it dawned on me. MSG! They are probably using MSG to keep the lettuce fresh.
It just goes to show that the healthy choice might not be that healthy.
