Lisa MarcAurele authored an article about eating at Olive Garden even though you’re on a ketogenic diet:

Whether you are traveling and can’t cook or you are celebrating something special with people you love, Olive Garden has some low-carb options that are simply delicious!

They might be known for their endless breadsticks and overflowing plates of pasta, but there are some keto-friendly choices on the menu, too. You just have to know where to look. 

Olive Garden is also known for its large portions, so you will have to think ahead before eating everything on your plate. 

When you don’t have time to cook or just want to dine out, Olive Garden can be an appealing option for people on a ketogenic diet. Thankfully, there are ways to eat a keto meal at Olive Garden – you just have to be a little creative with a custom order!

Thank you, Lisa.
