I have a little catching up to do, so bear with me.
Did you know that Olive Garden's salad is the devil?
You would think it would be pretty low in points. The dressing seems pretty light and it's all pretty much lettuce. Maybe a few croutons.
It's 8 points per serving! 26 grams of fat.
Holy fat cow!
If you skip the dressing, it's 2 pts per serving with only 3.5 grams of fat. What a difference! This is straight from the OG website too, so you know it's all factual and whatnot.
The pasta fagioli soup is only 2 points per serving.
Unfortunately the website doesn't specify how much a serving is. I can only assume that a serving is what they serve you. Makes sense, right?
I have nothing to compare it to, so it's what I have to go with for now. If you have any secret inside info, please spill.
Daily points allowance: 25
Weekly points: 35
*Please remember that I am using the old WW points system, not the new one.

Thought for the day:
