Starbucks Salads Step it Up

Starbucks Salads Step it UpStarbucks new spring menu has much to crow about when it comes to salad selections.

If you’ve grown weary of their sodium-laden breakfast sandwiches (yeah, Sausage/Cheddar Sandwich with 920 mg sodium, I’m lookin’ at you), then you might be interested in these 3 new salad bowls:

  • Hearty Veggie & Brown Rice Salad Bowl
  • Chicken & Greens Caesar Bowl
  • Zesty Chicken & Black Bean Salad Bowl

I recently sampled the Zesty Chicken and Black Bean Salad Bowl – and even using just half the salad dressing, was pleasantly surprised.

The salad bowl posts a pretty solid fiber profile, with 8 grams coming from quinoa, black beans, corn, and jicama.

If you go half-dressing, the numbers work out to 290 calories, 8 g fiber, 19 g protein for 610 mg sodium. Go all the way on the dressing and you top out at 360 calories and 850 mg sodium.

The Hearty Veggie & Brown Rice Salad Bowl also boasts 8 g fiber at 430 calories, but with less protein (10 g) and sodium (640 mg with all the dressing).

These certainly aren’t low sodium selections, but they’re a pretty good fiber buy for lunch on the fly.
