Well, here's what I came up with, per salad:
6 black olives - 50 calories
1/4 avocado - 69
1 hb egg - 78
1.5 strips baked bacon - 68
3/4 grilled chicken breast - 100
1/4 cup fat free shredded cheddar cheese - 45
2 T creamy blue cheese dressing - 160
Total: 570 calories
I didn't count any calories for the veggies. I know my dressing was a killer, but I love it and it's worth it to me! You can knock that way down by using a low-cal dressing.
I don't think 570 calories is out of line for a whole dinner, though. And, with a couple of exceptions, they are "good calories".
What is your calorie count, DQ?
