Salads and Zalads
Subway salad with grilled chicken breast and FF honey mustard dressing: $6 for 160kcal, 2.5g fat, 395mg sodium or... 0.0375 cents per kcal.
Zaxby's Blackened Blue Zalad with 1/2 packet of mediteranian dressing: $7 for 588kcal, 27g fat, 1712mg sodium or.... 0.0119 cents per kcal. (ACK! I can't believe I ate that).
My salad with fresh romaine lettuce, mushrooms, cucumber, avocado, raisins, red bell pepper slices, walnuts, feta, and homemade mustard vinaigrette and a small piece or homemade cornbread with orange jelly: $2 for 469kcal, 25g fat (Almost all unsaturated), 635mg sodium or...0.00426 cents per kcal.
While the ingredients and produce to make your own salad may initially seem expensive, when you break it down into one salad, it comes out much less expensive and much much healthier.
