I'm going to be real honest with you. Approximately 80% of restaurants close within the first year. Of the 20% that make it beyond a year, 90% close within 5 years. That means out of 100 restaurants, 2 are still up and running after 5... (more)

Not to mention the organic bacon and the 6-month aged unprocessed cheddar. The lettuce wrap holds up better than any other I've had. You can eat it like a burger rather than with a knife and fork. I am biased, as I'm a franchisee, but I think... (more)

Reality check: how much of it do you really eat in a sitting? You eat a couple slices here and there. Is that problematic? No.

I once went to an italian restaurant and ordered a pasta dish without the pasta. In essence, I got a bowl of vegetables, seafood, and tomato sauce. It ended up being so good that I had no problem passing up on the garlic bread.

I don't think it's the smell. I don't think you're being paranoid, but maybe a tad overly cautious if you're not extremely sensitive. HOWEVER, flour gets on everything and if you're extremely sensitive you can react to the gluten in that. I react... (more)

Just about any restaurant (within reason) can be made "paleo friendly" by selective ordering.

It's pretty hard to eat out and stay strict Paleo. Almost all restaurants use vegetable oils or grain oils in cooking. If you're serious about trying 100% Paleo, don't eat out. That being said, the effects depend on your goals. If, like me,... (more)

Ruminants; Beef, goat, venison, elk, buffalo, lamb, etc. Meat from ruminants has the best protein and fat quality, and if you can get your hands on grass fed, organic, you're golden.

Nothing at Pei Wei is going to be "hard core Paleo". But it does have some nice options. The salads are a good option, and you can ask for chicken that's not breaded. I will also get the Chicken Lettuce Wraps and ask for the sauce on the side. ... (more)
