1,388 Calories

Today I have a little trivia for you: Guess what chain-restaurant appetizer has 1,388 Calories and 100 grams of fat?

The Double Cheese Chicken Quesadilla at Ruby Tuesday.

I particularly like their description of the dish:
Double Cheese Chicken Quesadilla (Grilled chicken, cheddar cheese and tomatoes in a grilled flour tortilla. Served with salsa and sour cream. (Jalapenos upon request.)

It sounds healthy with all of those "grilled" buzzwords, but it's really a fat blast disaster. If you want to see what you're really eating when you eat out, check out CalorieLab.com. Pay attention to the serving size listed as most are in 1/4 plate portions.

 It's an eye-opening experience.
