Going Out to Lunch on a Low-Carb Diet

Going Out to Lunch on a Low-Carb Diet

Thin just had a delicious low-carb lunch at Frog Hair on Transit Road in Amherst, New York. With a few modifications to the steak in the grass, served with fries, she had the following: tenderloin topped with fried spinach, sauteed onions, and mozzarella cheese, without the bun. They served it with a garlic aioli sauce and green beans with roasted almonds. Low carb is delicious!!!!
