Since someone asked me this question in a previous post, I thought maybe more people might be interested in how someone who chronically eats out maintains a Paleo diet.
Breakfast: I'm fortunate enough to work at a place with a full service cafeteria. So for Breakfast I always eat a four egg(Omega-3 enriched) omelet with ham, peppers, onions and mushrooms. I will add 4-5 pieces of bacon on the side and drink a glass of water. I pretty much eat the same breakfast everyday. cost: $7
Lunch: I have a few options here... Thai Food: Green Curry chicken, extra hot, switching out the rice with mixed vegetables....thank you Robb Wolf Peruvian Food: Whole Peruvian Chickens Nandos: http://www.nandosperiperi.com/ Basically Whole African Chickens Hot Bar places(food by the pound places): Broccoli, Collard Greens, Chicken, Duck, Garlic Steak, Asparagus, Seafood mix Work Cafeteria: Same as above. Cost: $10-$18
Dinner: Kabob Places are a REALLY good cheap Paleo food. I always eat the same place everyday. They have chicken(white meat), chicken tikka(dark meat), lamb, beef and salmon kabobs. Each meal comes with two sides and a naan(which I throw away). I always get a double serving of spinach, sometimes when I feel like a tiny bit of carb intake, I switch out one of the spinach sides with sweet pumpkin. 90% of the time I get chicken tikka, the other 10% I get salmon. This is pretty much the dinner I eat Monday thru thursday, except on Friday when I go my farmers market and eat a rotisserie chicken. Cost: $10(unless I get salmon which is $14). I eat the same dinner every day. This is where I go... http://www.maiwandkabob.com/
Other: I keep Strawberry coconut milk in the fridge, just in case, I'm still hungry, Toss in some Gluten Free grass fed Jerky, seaweed salad and Gluten/dairy/soy free stone ground chocolate and wine here and there and this is basically my diet.
In case you're wondering the main reason I eat out so much is because I have an 1.5 hour commute each way everyday. Eating out often during the week allows me to eat dinner early, get in a good workout and still get to bed early. When I was cooking each day I wasn't eating until 10-11pm every night getting to bed at 12-1am each day...and yes my cafeteria really has Omega-3 enriched eggs :)
Sorry this is poorly written...back to work!
