Yeah, I never have any problem asking to sub sides... but this olive garden has HORRIBLE service (every time I've been there, seriously). Today I got the steak and subbed the mixed veggies for the potatoes... they brought it out w/potatoes the first time, then took about 5 minutes to bring it out with veggies instead. blah! but it was tasty...
Carbs: 113g (stupid dessert... but still pretty low)
B: none, because I wasn't hungry.
L: mixed greens with chopped hard boiled eggs, bacon, and tomatoes, and homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Sliced tomatoes with olive oil on the side.
D: LOTS of salad at olive garden (no bread or croutons), half of a 14oz steak with squash and zucchini on the side. Then... tiramisu (oops).
I ordered tiramisu because 1) I love it and 2) I thought it would be pretty low-carb since it's made with mascarpone cheese (supposed to be). Looked up the nutrition facts when I got home... why does Olive Garden not list the protein in stuff? So weird. I know tiramisu has some protein because of the cheese... but no idea how much. Anyway, it was the lowest-carb dessert there, so I was right... but 48g of carbs, so pretty high... I'll do better tomorrow.
I'm just really proud of myself for resisting all of the garlic bread. I didn't have any urges toward any of the pasta, but man... buttery puffy garlic bread...and not one bite. yay!
