Low-Carb Dieter Has the Perfect 'Olive Garden' Order to Stay on Track

If you’re currently on a low-carb diet and feel like you’re missing out, this clever meal won’t leave you drooling, while your family stuffs their faces. TikTok content creator @brandirhaefele shows us what she orders when she visits the Olive Garden. We could go for this right now.

This dreamy dish won’t leave you feeling hungry or left out!

This looks so much better than a crouton-less salad with a dry chicken breast. She’s enjoying the chicken Alfredo and instead of pasta, she’s eating broccoli in its place. We bet the OG’s Alfredo sauce tastes pretty darn amazing with those green stalks. And the good news is that if you have a few carbs to spare, you can also order many of their soups too. Minestrone, Pasta Fagioli, and Zuppa Toscana have only 13 net carbs in each bowl. We would just need someone to keep those breadsticks off the table. We aren’t equipped with that kind of self-control.

The audience loved this clever idea! Viewer @Karina commented, “Yes!! This is my go-to. It’s so good. I add mushrooms too.” That also sounds delicious! Viewer @Daph commented, “Pro tip if you're eating low carb, don’t go to Olive Garden. Works every time.” And @brandirhaefele replied, “Pro tip: live your life, eat where you want, & dine with your family because life is too short for missing out because of a diet/lifestyle choice.” That is really great advice. Viewer @audrey_holly_ said, “I’ve been eating here for years and never thought about this. Thank you.” It’s a great option to know for sure.

We’d consider ordering this low-carb option at the Olive Garden, too. Even if we aren't on a low-carb diet.
