So my mom is coming out to visit me in the Bay Area this weekend. She's very into Alice Waters, so we got a reservation for the fixed prix dinner this Friday night. She's being very generous to treat me to this $95-a-head meal.
Here is the menu:
An apéritif, Green bean, shell bean, and romano bean salad à la Panisse, Santa Barbara spot prawns sauté persillade, Grilled Paine Farm squab with roasted figs, squab liver toast, and garden lettuces, Meyer lemon tart with blueberries and blackberries
I have recently gone paleo and love the way I feel on the program. I know that my body will be a bit shocked if I reintroduce gluten, dairy, and sugar.
The question is this: do I attempt to avoid the foods on the menu that might cause me problems, or just go with the flow and enjoy this very expensive and delicious meal? Is one "cheat meal" going to set me way back? What sort of repercussions should I expect?
Thanks for all your help!
