Creamed spinach

What happens when you combine healthy veggies like corn and spinach with cream, butter, and cheese? A side dish with more than 75% of your saturated fat for the day. Boston Market's creamed spinach side has 280 calories (almost entirely from fat) and 15 grams of saturated fat.

If you love the creamy taste, make a healthier recipe using low-fat milk and light cream cheese instead of cream. This lowers the total fat per serving to 3.7 grams.
