I went to Cracker Barrel for lunch. Thought I'd have the soup and salad. I asked about the vegetable soup. The soup had wheat in it.

You do need to be cautious. Even though they've got good intentions, sometimes they don't really understand what low carb means and they might add things that really aren't suitable.

I'm curious about the wheat in the vegetables soup though. In what form would they add it? Did they thicken the soup with bread or something like that?

I see no mention of low carb options on the Cracker Barrel site. I remember that a few years ago they were posted online. They've only got low calorie items listed there now.

Cracker Barrel is one of my fave places to go...don't get there very often, but when I do, I know I've got options & don't have to worry about what I'm going to eat! It's nice to easily be able to order right off of the menu, instead of having to hunt & carefully pick what you are going to have.

I agree with you .... I love the LC menu at Cracker Barrel! I usually go for the breakfast plate that has eggs and 2 kinds of meat with a couple of sliced tomatoes. They 'say' the bread is LC on the LC breakfast menu that lists LC toast, but when I questioned our local Cracker Barrel Mgr ... he said NOT LC for our Kerrville, TX location. So, I always skip the bread just in case...

LCing is no longer a temporary fix, it's my way of life!
