Olive Garden House Salad Review

I went to the Olive Garden today and was served this unlimited house salad with field greens instead of iceberg lettuce. I liked the taste of it but the texture threw me off because I was expecting the classic American mix. I am hoping this swap was temporary because there was a shortage at the restaurant because you can’t mess with a classic! Update: after some research – due to crop disease, 2020 aftermath, and supply and demand levels – it looks like there is a iceberg lettuce and romaine lettuce shortage. This is causing a huge price increase for stores/restaurants but is not affecting field greens – hence, new Olive Garden house salad for now!

I’m not sure how I feel about this…thoughts??? #lowcarb #olivegarden #salad

KETO SPRING CLEANING


SPRING HAS SPRUNG KETO BAES! This challenge will run from MARCH 29TH TO FRIDAY APRIL 2ND and will focus on total grams of carbs, upping your step game, and being better with your water intake. Use the hashtag #ketospringcleaning to follow along with other keto baes this week. As a reminder, please consult with your health care provider when you make changes to your diet. We are not nutrition or medical professionals and any suggestions should be taken as opinions.

The guidelines are simple:

  1. Stick to 20g TOTAL carbs or fewer. That means DO NOT SUBTRACT ANY FIBER to get to 20g of total carbs. This also means you will be depending on very low carb foods to get you through the week instead of many processed foods with added fiber or sugar alcohols. This is a great way to refocus your low carb intake and challenge yourself to eat more unprocessed, whole foods.
  2. Aim for 30 minutes of physical activity. Yes, we understand that many of you can barely fit 15 minutes your daily routines between your jobs, families, activities, and general schedule. However, there are many opportunities you can take to fit physical activities, like take the stairs at work, taking a walk during your breaks, parking further away from the entrances if businesses, etc. If you want to achieve something, you’ll make it work.
  3. Try to be consistent with your hydration patterns by hitting at least 100oz of water each day of the challenge. Water is so beneficial on ANY diet, but it’s super helpful when you’re entering a deeper state of ketosis. Your coffee and electrolytes count as water too.

We will support you throughout the week by answering your questions and documenting what we do ourselves to reset for the spring. Follow us on Instagram to watch for story updates, meal ideas, and live q&a sessions.

Before you start, take pictures, measurements, and weigh yourself. This will show you how small changes can make a difference. Make sure you plan ahead by making sure you have plenty of food and ingredient options that will nourish you this week and keep you satiated. Do not plan to wing it the morning of Day 1.

If you need a little TLC because you are new to keto or have never tracked total carbs, here is a sample meal plan with product links to get you through the week. Please note that these are suggestions and you can customize them to ensure success with your reset. If you need more meal ideas, search the #20gtotalreboot hashtag on Instagram to see past meals we have eaten during this type of reset.

10 Pizza Night Ideas

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Cali’flour Foods. They have truly perfected the cauliflower crust. The pizza crusts and flatbreads they have in their line of products are super clean (meaning there’s not crazy processed ingredients involved) and consists of a very wholesome base: cauliflower, egg whites, and mozzarella. Because of that, they are keto-friendly and perfect for letting you indulge without any of the guilt or repercussions of eating a super carbie meal.

The other day, we received a variety pack containing the Original Italian, Sweet Bell Pepper, and Jalapeño keto pizza crusts along with the sun-dried tomato, Jalapeño, and Original flatbreads. Since we are in the midst of a fridge clean out (this usually happens the final week of each month), we couldn’t wait to get creative in the kitchen and make some pizza to grub on with these as the vessel. P.S. the flatbreads are a great keto bread as well – think sandwich thins.

If you’re interested in purchasing these keto pizza crusts or flatbreads, feel free to visit this link and use KETOBAES for a discount.

Based on what we had in our fridge, we decided on Chicken Alfredo Pizza and a classic Pepperoni Pizza. They were super easy to put together and cook but here are some pro tips after our first round:

  1. Use a crisper tray to pre-bake the flatbreads in your oven or toaster oven. It took 4 minutes for ours to crisp up the flatbreads.
  2. Spray the crisper tray prior to pre-baking the flatbreads with a cooking spray like Pam.
  3. Watch your flatbreads the first time you bake them as oven times and temps will vary.
  4. Add the toppings after you pre-bake the flatbreads (or keto pizza crusts) and bake for an additional 5 minutes. This prevents the keto pizza crust or flatbread from getting soggy.

Here are eight additional ideas for a fun pizza night:Jalapeño Popper Pizza: Jalapeño Keto Pizza Crust + cream cheese, shredded cheddar, green onions, and bacon.

  1. Viral Feta Bake Pizza: Original Italian Keto Pizza Crust + sliced garlic, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, crumbled feta.
  2. Crab Rangoon Pizza: Jalapeño Keto Pizza Crust + cream cheese, imitation crab meat, mozzarella cheese, green onions, sweet chili sauce.
  3. Taco Pizza: Sweet Bell Pepper Keto Pizza Crust + taco sauce, Mexican cheese blend, taco meat, finished off with fresh lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and sour cream.
  4. Chicken Tender Pizza: Jalapeño Keto Pizza Crust + shredded cheddar, chopped chicken tenders, mozzarella, honey mustard, green onions.
  5. Buffalo Chicken Pizza: Sweet Bell Pepper Keto Pizza Crust+ cream cheese, mozzarella, shredded chicken, buffalo sauce, blue cheese crumbles, celery
  6. Cheeseburger Pizza: Jalapeño Keto Pizza Crust + ketchup, shredded cheddar, ground beef, pickles, onions, tomatoes, topped with fresh lettuce
  7. BLT Pizza: Original Flatbread (only thing that needs to be baked) + mayo, bacon, shredded cheddar, lettuce, chopped tomatoes
  8. Everything but the Kitchen Sink Pizza: Original Italian Keto Pizza Crust + pizza sauce, any shredded cheese, chopped veggies, and any remaining leftover proteins in your fridge.
