Here's How to Order a Healthier Dinner at Olive Garden (Sorry in Advance For Nixing the Breadsticks)
Planning to eat out at a restaurant can be tough when you're trying to eat clean. Sometimes it's nice to just indulge and let yourself have a day off from your usual regime, but if you're sticking to your plan, fear not — we've got you covered.
Example: if you're at Olive Garden, you're probably there for bottomless breadsticks and pasta. But let's just say you're trying to eat a little cleaner — there are still plenty of options that won't undo your diet. With low-carb chicken dishes and lighter fare bowls of pasta (read: no cream sauce), you can find filling, protein-rich meals or stick to low-cal bottomless veggie soup and salad.
We found the seven best options from this American staple restaurant so you can go out to eat with friends without a ton of extra guesswork. And yeah . . . you won't find unlimited breadsticks on this list, but you'll still be plenty satisfied.
