Low Carb Options at California Pizza Kitchen

Low Carb and dining out, can it be done?
Ok, the gig is up!
I’m sure you guys have guessed it; I go out to eat A LOT!
Sometimes it’s low carb and other times, it’s just good ole comfort food. I know it’s not always the healthiest option, but it sure is fun. I like to think of it as my way of helping the US economy; spreading my dollars near and far. This time, the restaurant cheers landed me at California Pizza Kitchen. Cooking is not my favorite activity. It takes a lot of thought, planning, and energy….something I’d prefer NOT to do after commuting and working amongst fools other people. Therefore, I opt for restaurants. I’ve seen the California Pizza Kitchen in nearly every city that I’ve lived or visited but I never stopped in. Last month when I visited my sister in DC, she suggested California Pizza Kitchen since we were in the Pentagon City area. I sorta tooted my nose and gave her major side eye, but she didn’t care, so California Pizza Kitchen it was.

To my surprise, the place was stylish and quaint yet filled with DC conservatives. The mood was light. It helped that the day was amazing. It was about 75 degrees, sunny skies, and a warm breeze. As you see, we opted for a light lunch because we had other shopping to do.
California Pizza Kitchen is a legendary brand that originally opened in Beverly Hills in 1985. Their vision included marrying high quality ingredients with hearth-baked pizzas.
With that, I’m sure you’re asking, where does that leave the low carb eater?
Hold tight, here’s what’s on the menu for low to moderate eaters. I wouldn’t suggest this for anyone who is strict KETO or managing induction.
