Jack in the Box Salad Calories

A Healthy Choice or Not?

Lots of greens, a blast of red tomato or radish or bell pepper, a bit of white or purple chopped onion, and cucumber to top things off - what a healthy mix! It's going to be nominal in energy values because all of these salad ingredients are natural foods.

We can even add a serving of low fat dressing and eat without the guilt, secure in knowing that we're providing our body with the healthiest of necessary fuels.

So what about Jack in the Box? Healthy or not?

Some are, some aren't.

The number of calories in a salad doesn't greatly depend upon the ingredients therein - rather how close to their natural state they are - and how those ingredients are prepared.

Grilled vs Fried, the Big Fat Difference

We'll use the Chicken Club Salad as our example. As we can easily see by our nutrition data chart below, the grilled version is much lower in energy values than the crispy version. It's also lower in total fat grams.

In Summary

You can enjoy fried foods and still drop unwanted pounds. However, calories must be accounted for in your daily total.

For example, if Fred requires 2,000 kcals to maintain his healthy weight, every energy value he consumes over that amount will generate a shift in body weight. If he goes on an eating binge and consumes 3,000 kcals, it will only take about 3 days for those extra energy values to reflect on his bathroom scales in the form of a one-pound weight gain.

Therefore, choose your foods wisely. You can enjoy more food when it is closest to its natural state.
