Many Menu Items Excessive in Sodium to be Considered Healthy Choices
Unfortunately, there aren't many selections on the menu at Wendy's Restaurant that will fit into a healthy eating plan - much less a healthy weight loss plan.
With the current RDA for salt at 2400 milligrams - or about 1 teaspoon, many of the food choices below will almost meet this amount.
Menu Items Highest in Salt Content at Wendy's
They include burgers with more than one hamburger patty, and those containing bacon - such as the Baconator. The Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger is quite loaded with salt, too.
The large chili and the chili cheese fries top the list for side items. They both contain more salt than a large order of fries. The redeeming factor - if we can call it that, is that the chili is nominal in calories at only 270 kcals.
Chicken & Wraps
The items containing chicken are a bit less in values but there are some on the list that are alarming. The Asiago Ranch Chicken Club contains over 1600 milligrams of salt. Other items to skip include the Homestyle Chicken Fillet, the Spicy Chicken Sandwich and the Wraps.
Garden Sensations Salads
Just because an item is defined as a salad doesn't mean that it's going to be the best choice.
ALL of the salad selections excepting the two side salads are extreme in salt content, even the half-orders.
The Apple Pecan Chicken and the Chicken BLT Cobb contain about 600 kcals while the Baja Chili version is 10 calories shy of 700. She Spicy Chicken Caesar Salad contains almost 800 calories.
