I've been on the Paleo plan for about a week and it's amazing. The scale is going down, I'm able to work out harder, and I get better sleep. It's tough to not eat out for lunch because of work. How many of you adhere to strict guidelines of only... (more)
I just finished a like 1000 calorie Korean BBQ dinner with friends. It was NOT my idea but when we sat down at a table with a grill in the middle and they started carting in the raw fatty meat and fermented veggies, I knew something AMAZING was... (more)
I think for me, when I go to a party and there's nothing but chips and processed crap. Or when working and I forget to pack a lunch and there's nothing healthy places in the area. How about you guys?
I'm getting to the point of not wanting to eat out anymore. This is happening every time I eat anywhere even though I feel like ordering simple, real food SHOULD be easier! Today I ordered: steak w/ roasted tomato/sweet onion sauce on top and... (more)
I'm having problems incorporating Paleo eating into my lifestyle. My husband and I socialize and go out to eat a lot with friends. Unfortunately he and everyone else like to indulge in bread, processed foods, wine, etc. How does everyone handle... (more)
So... yes. That is what happened. Within an hour I think.. I bring this up because I'm starting college soon in the city and I am a complete foodie. I love trying different foods and occasionally indulging in non-paleo foods. I plan on staying... (more)
I have recently figured out that I'm pretty intolerant to eggs. Considering I already don't eat grains, this discovery has made it impossible to eat typical breakfast foods. I have come up with a few "hacked" type meals that I can eat in a... (more)
I found this accidentally on the Panera Bread website when I was looking for allergens in their chicken. It is called the Panera Bread Hidden Menu and I think it is super cool for those times when you want to eat out with friends, business... (more)
Ok,let's say you're eating out and everything available to you has some sort of Paleo-No-No in it. Soy, Sugar, Grain, etc. When it comes down to decision time, is there a lesser of evils?
industrial oils and wheat - i avoid them above everything else. to be honest, i'm not even going to fret about beans or sugar. doesn't mean i'm ordering candied bean paste, but you get my drift...
Hi, I'm back again after a long absence. If you look at my previous posts and history you'll see I've gone, done and been through a lot in the past 2 years. But now that's all behind me I'm getting back on my two feet. Getting back on my two... (more)
More: I think such a restaurant CAN be successful. While aiming for the Paleo hardcore menu-wise, understand your main walk-in clientele may be rich hippies and experimenters looking for something new to do. It’s where I might take someone out on... (more)
What is the most paleo dessert when eating out? What desserts are guaranteed to have no wheat/gluten? E.g. mousse, creme brulees, cheesecake fillings?
Yoghurt mixed with WPI and heavy cream with almond slivers, cinnamon and stevia. Not standard restaurant fare but I did find it at a cool health food cafe.
Those of you who have Celiac and have to avoid gluten, what do you typically order when you eat at restaurants/diners/etc? I try to order the safest stuff possible but always end up having digestion trouble so I assume I am still getting some... (more)
talk to the wait staff! and yes, always always use the word allergy. my mainstays: grilled chicken/fish, burgers without a bun, steak, salads (oil and vinegar is almost always okay - no dressings really use malt vinegar) + extra protein thing to... (more)
I should start by saying I am in the UK, so my takeaway options are basically pizza, kebab, chinese, indian or fish and chips. I totally veto pizza generally, i know chinese dishes are almost all full of sugar and soy, kebabs are incredibly... (more)
As a form of blatant self promotion, I have just opened what may be the first paleo takeaway in the UK. I'm based in Cirencester in the Market Square on Saturdays only. I look forward to seeing you there! Ian
I have successfully been eating mostly paleo for close to 6 months now and just feel wonderful. I have lost 20 pounds, have more energy, etc. etc. So here is my dilemma- starting this weekend I am headed out of town for two weeks and will be... (more)
Among the popular salad dressings that are widely available, which ones are relatively paleo-friendly? Thanks!
Hey all, I'm in NY this weekend for a wedding and I'm looking for some recs from the New Yorkers in our midst: restaurants and food carts in a reasonable price range where you can stay paleo? So no fancy steak houses, where can I eat in the 5-20$... (more)
Yes, yes I know. Another eating-out question. Bear with me. I have been on a journey to find the best places to eat-out in my area. Seems chains aren't the way to go but certain types of restaurants or cafes are better than others. What type of... (more)
Now that my original eating out place has failed me (All Pho restaurants adding MSG to their broth) I've been searching for another go to place where I can go. After some reading I found out about Mongolian BBQ. The concept sounds awesome. YOU... (more)
My in-laws are generously taking our entire family on a four day trip to Chicago. I KNOW I will be eating McDonalds at least once, but more likely twice to three times a day. It happens every time we travel with them. Yes, I know McDonalds is... (more)
If you eat at Mcdonalds, eat everything they serve you. Tossing food hurts more than not eating it, and can make you look like a fool or someone with ED. Either refuse to eat there and pack snacks or eat someplace else, or pick something nice off... (more)
This place is great! I'm certain their meat isn't grain fed, but when you're in a pinch, you can get a bowl of greens and meat for a under $10 and they will customize it for you for no charge. Somewhere around 6th and Flower. Look it up, go there,... (more)
I realize that I am almost asking the world but I wanted to put the question out there. Do you know of any cheap and healthy food you can order out? Healthy = Paleo/Primal approved (Conventional meat and veggies is fine) that would NOT count as a... (more)
I use a paleo meal delivery device (www.theprimalplan.com) At first I thought it was pricey but once I calculated how much I spend on food, realized it was saving me money.
As anyone who follows Paleo/Primal/PHD knows, eating out is tough. You can always count it as your cheat meal but cheat meals can affect how you feel and I want to feel as good as possible. So, where do you eat and what do you order that does not... (more)
