Calorie Counter

You can count on J.D.Wetherspoon to serve up a meal and drink that won’t break the bank but whilst the prices can’t be faulted, the macronutrient ratio of most of their menu used to worry BBB slightly.

Thankfully, the pub chain have stepped up their game and now offer a salad that most busy bodies would find suitable for their dietary requirements.

The Superfood Salad with Chicken and Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing is made with chargrilled slice chicken breast with butternut squash, spinach, edamame soya beans, broccoli, fine green beans, pomegranate seed and red chard with balsamic vinaigrette. Perfect for the gluten intolerant, lactose intolerant, calorie counters, and clean eaters (ask for your vinaigerette on the side).

Busybodies who are conscious of their protein intake will be pleased to know that this salad offers a hefty 42g of protein and only 12g of carbs.

At 380 kcals and 5g of fibre per serving this is definitely a salad to opt for when you’re out and about.

In addition to this handy menu addition, the entire online menu is designed in a way to help you build your own menu based on your requirements. Calories are listed just below the menu item and if you click ‘view more’ you’ll be able to see the nutritional breakdown of the meal.

Hopefully we’ll be seeing more balanced meals on their menu.
