Just ate dinner at Olive Garden....
« on: January 19, 2013, 10:29:47 PM »
Did my best to stay low carb.  No pasta!  No potatoes!  Steak and chicken kabobs with peppers and onions.  Grilled yellow squash and zucchini for a side.  Salad minus the croutans.  How did I do?

You did great...I love the Olive Garden  8)  What I'm most proud of you for is pushing away those bread sticks that came with the salad bowl!  ;) When we're out and order we always ask the wait staff to keep the carbs in the kitchen  ::)

I LOVE the Olive Garden!  I have found that they will swap pasta for grilled veggies on most any dish!  I love their salad too!

Failure can be measured by the steps we don't take.

Hi, Siltz! :)

You did a wonderful job in your food selections.
And they prove that you can go out to dinner, have a wonderful meal, and still live low carb!

You're doing great! ;D ;D ;D

I agree with Doug that passing on the breadsticks was a wonderful thing.  Congratulations.

I was shocked at how many people I saw killing themselves one "complementary" breadstick at a time.  And chasing it down with soda pop.
