These are Canada's unhealthiest fast food salads

Nisean Lorde

In the following Unhealthiest Food segment, we’ve rounded up some of the least healthy salads you can order at top Canadian fast food and casual dining chain restaurants: McDonald’s, Boston Pizza, Subway, Pizza Pizza, Tim Hortons, Earl’s, The Keg, Burger King, Pizza Hut, St-Hubert and Wendy’s. Spoiler alert: one top offender contains 88 grams of fat; another salad option contains more than 2, 700 mg of sodium! Yikes.

Based on a 2,000 calorie per day diet, the daily recommended intake for the average adult is about 65 grams of fat (no more than 20 grams saturated), and between 1,500 – 2,400 mg of sodium.

Unfortunately, many chain restaurants load their greens with crispy croutons, fried poultry, cheeses and fattening dressings; so whether you choose a salad as a side dish, or as the main course, you might be taking in more than half the calories and sodium recommended for the entire day in one sitting. On the plus side, we’ve also rounded up some healthier alternatives.
