Oh. My. Word.

I actually am really trying to keep up with my New Years Resolution to pay more attention to PORTION CONTROL, reduce HIGH CALORIE/FAT foods, and EAT OUT LESS.  I came across this today and was actually horrified – and now the first thing to avoid when we do eat out will be appetizers :

Worst Dip Appetizer

Chili’s Hot Spinach & Artichoke Dip with Chips

  • 1,130 calories
  • 90 g fat (39 g saturated)
  • 2,460 mg sodium

Sure, there are artichokes and spinach in this dip, but they are drowned in cheese and mayo. These nutrition numbers are just for one serving—the plate, which you may easily plow through, surely has more than one serving.

Worst Potato Side

Dairy Queen Chili Cheese Fries

  • 1,240 calories
  • 71 g fat (28 g saturated, 0.5 g trans fat)
  • 2,550 mg sodium

regular small fries are about 300 cal

Worst Appetizer in America

On the Border Firecracker Stuffed Jalapenos with Chili Con Queso

  • 1,950 calories (again, that’s for one serving, and there are at least two in this appetizer so if you eat it yourself – well, do the math)
  • 134 g fat (36 g saturated)
  • 6,540 mg sodium

Hello Friends

I have the coolest job in the world. I get to create gorgeous images of beautiful kids and families, so they can remember these precious days forever!

I live on Lake Keowee in SC, but I travel frequently back to the Pittsburgh/Washington PA area and do sessions in BOTH places!
