A healthier choice at a restaurant that is caloric minefield.
A few weeks ago, I was our to eat with my family at night while dropping my son off at college. I let my son pick the dinning establishment. As we entered the restaurant I was significantly concern that I might not be able to find a healthy choice. Let’s face the truth, Olive Garden is not exactly known for low calorie meal choices.
I looked at the menu and saw many poor choices. I could have easily chosen poorly, but I decided to be healthy. I chose to order the Shrimp Scampi. The recipe has just over 500 calories and you can add a salad for 150 calories more. It was very delicious and filling but I would not call it healthy. It is clearly healthier than the other options on the menu as long as you avoid too much salad or the bread sticks.
The bottom line: This meal is a great dinner on the go. The shrimp scampi was delicious and is a great addition to your weight loss plans.
