It's Time to Eat Healthy!

Howdy,

Lunch today is a McDonald's Cobb Salad ("Crispy Chicken(tm)" style).
Healthy as hell, right? Just for fun, let's take a look at how much better this is for me than a Big Mac(tm) would have been;

Cobb Salad w/ Crispy Chicken;
Calories: 380
Total Fat(g): 23
Sodium(mg): 1170
Sugars(g): 4

Wow, that looks like a lot, but at least it's not as much as;

Big Mac;
Calories: 580
Total Fat(g): 33
Sodium(mg): 1050
Sugars(g): 7

Dum-de-dum. Shall we move on to the punch-line?

Cobb Salad w/ Crispy Chicken WITH COBB DRESSING;
Calories: 380 + 120 = 500
Total Fat(g): 23 + 9 = 32
Sodium(mg): 1170 + 440 = 1610
Sugars(g): 4 + 5 = 9

Shoulda had a Big Mac.

P.S.; Would you like to read about McDonald's President Mike Roberts calling the new salads "wholesome"? Click here. Unfortunately if you do you will have to also look at Paul Newman shaking hands with Ronald McDonald... Don't start projectile vomiting or anything on my account...
