Eating Healthier at Fast Food Restaurants : Olive Garden

Olive GardenI have created this list of selected items for you to use when you must eat out. The items listed fall generally under 400 calories, 15 grams of fat, and 600 milligrams of sodium, so if you are going to be stuck eating at such restaurants, this is a fairly good guideline. I've also included a printable version so that you can print it out and take it with you for reference.
