Thumbs up: Asparagus & Arugula Salad (pictured)
The offerings on CPK’s Small Cravings menu run the gamut from healthy to hefty. On the healthy end, this snack menu also boasts several snack-sized salads. Our top pick is the Asparagus & Arugula Salad with 190 calories and 2 grams of fiber. Packed with good-for-you asparagus, arugula, and sun-dried tomatoes, it’s an easy way to score a serving of veggies. Honorable mention goes to the 280-calorie Wedge Salad.

Thumbs Down: Mediterranean Foccacia 
It was neck and neck, but the Mediterranean Foccacia tips CPK’s snack menu scales with 660 calories. Finishing close behind is the 510-calorie Spicy Chicken Tinga Quesadilla.
