Who says you can’t eat out on a Low Carb Budget?
I took the family out to lunch today, and we went to O’Charleys.
It’s one of my favorites because they have plenty of low carb restaurant choices.
And their steamed broccoli is actually good!
Today I had the 16oz Prime Rib, medium & blackened, with steamed broccoli and a caesar salad.
Sometimes I order my broccoli loaded, but today I salted it lightly and dipped it in the au jus – yum!
Caesar Dressing is one of the lowest carb salad dressings, generally 1 net carb per 2 tablespoons.
I always remove the croutons of course, and today I snuck some tomatoes and cucumber from the nearby house salad of a picky eater:
After lunch we stopped at Starbucks for dessert. I ordered an Iced Coffee with heavy whipping cream and sugar free French Vanilla syrup.
A fabulous way to cool down on a hot summer day!
This is a carb-free coffee, which you can order hot or cold. For low/no carb coffee you make at home, see: Carb Free Coffee Creamer (which features some of my favorite syrups too).
As you can see, I’m including plenty of “good carbs” in my diet by eating romaine salads, broccoli, etc. And being on a “diet” doesn’t stop me from eating out, or even ordering out, as much as I please!
There are tons of low carb restaurant choices just about anywhere you go!
