Eating Out Questions
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?
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)
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)
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)
What's wrong with a kebab? Even if the meat isn't in its original structure, I never knew a kebab to be anything other than meat and seasonings, possibly marinated in yogurt depending on the kebab.
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)
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)
Among the popular salad dressings that are widely available, which ones are relatively paleo-friendly? Thanks!
OMG, so many places in TO are meat-centric and locally-sourced these days. You could cobble together a Paleo meal pretty much anywhere. The Black Hoof on Dundas is a must-try for nose-to-tail dining.
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)
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)
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)
Barbecue. You can get a plate of brisket, sauce on the side, skip the fries (which are likely fried in veg. oil) and the slice of bread, and use your own discretion on the pickle. (this is BBQ served Kansas City style, btw - YMMV).
Wheat is typically listed on the bottle for most soy sauces, but there does seem to be some debate over whether the gluten actually remains after the fermentation process. Thoughts? is soy sauce an issue if one wants to stay gluten free? I know... (more)
For those familiar with the area -- any good ones that have escaped me? Grass-fed burgers at Baltimore Burger Bar (Hampden, MD) Steakhouses (The Prime Rib, Morton's, etc.) Woodberry Kitchen All the sushi places Seafood joints (Black Olive, Kali's... (more)
Im going to soon have to spend weeks on end in oklahoma for work. What are some good paleo food choices out there? Im guessing that I wont have access to a kitchen so it'll be eating out and grabbing items from a grocery store. Ive already... (more)
If you're in Tulsa there are a couple of paleo catering businesses that offer entrees for around $10. If you had a fridge and microwave, you could order a few a week. Other ideas... Salad bar/cafe at Whole Foods? Akins is a local store similar... (more)
I spend a good deal of my time travelling, often needing to fuel up on the road. While Paleo technically gives me the freedom to go for large parts of the standard British fry-up (full English, Ulster fry, whatever you'd like to call it...), I am... (more)
