Is Olive Garden Trying To Kill Diabetics And Low-Carbers?

Olive Garden ain’t exactly a place for “low-carb friendly” meals

If my wife Christine had unlimited resources and was able to buy anything she wanted in the whole world, then there’s no doubt in my mind that she would buy her very own Olive Garden restaurant to fill her need for their famous soup, salad, and breadsticks. The woman would literally live off of this meal every single day if she could, although she does admit she’d probably balloon up in weight just as quickly as we’d go bankrupt paying for it! :D

So, when a brand new Olive Garden opened a couple of weeks ago about a mile from our house, she has been literally begging me to go.

And so we did. I was quite impressed by their carbohydrate-conscious suggestions right there on the menu, including eating fresh veggies instead of potatoes.

But then the waitress suggested THIS dessert if I am avoiding sugar.

Here’s a picture of it:
