Creamy coleslaw can be both high in calories and carbs. Vinegar dressed coleslaw has less. A creamy coleslaw could be very high in sugar content.

So, if I order a bowl of soup, can I substitute the 2 pound lobster?

If you pay the upcharge. I didn't say substitutions were free I said they were available.

I'm diabetic and just order what I can eat. I would have said just leave off the rice. I would have then ordered a side i could eat. Let's think about it any substitution would be more than the rice. If, I don't know, but if it were a special then probably no substitutions. I often pay an upcharge to get something I can eat.

If you can't eat what's on the menu, don't order it.

Point is this can get out of hand.

Why not order the kabobs without the rice and a veggie or two on the side? Rice is cheap and easy to prepare; veggies cost more than rice and are more work to prepare. Q.E.D.: They are not equivalent.
Good that she’s your EX.
