Eating Out Paleo Style

FacebooktwitterFacebooktwitter

paleo-eating-out-tipsAs CrossFitters we all know how beneficial Paleo is. Although I am a pretty clean eater, I will be the first to admit that I’am not 100% paleo. I use it as a strict guideline, but there is something about rice and the occasional bowl of cereal that I cant seem to let go of.

Almost everyday I try and pack my lunch,or make sure that I food prepped so I don’t have to worry about my next meal. But there are plenty of times that I just don’t feel like staying up an extra 20 minutes to pack my lunch, I’am out with friends or co-workers or I am just too exhausted after a long day to even stand another minute in order to make something. With that said you will find a few places that provide paleo style meals.

Note :Not everything is 100% paleo based on ingredients used. Also be careful of your sodium intake. Many of these places will eliminate oils and seasonings if you just ask!

In-n-Out: Any burger, protein style, with no cheese or spread. Sub mustard for spread, as mustard is a paleo friendly condiment.

PF Chang’s:

  • Chicken or veggie lettuce wraps.
  • Egg Drop Soup

Steak House: Steak and a side of veggies. The most paleo meal you can get.

Chipotle:

  • Salad( no dressing)
  • Fajitas
  • Meat (Double meat) of your choice
  • Salsa of your choice
  • Guacamole

Mexican Restaurant: Fajitas are your best bet! Minus the cheese, tortilla or sour cream.

California Pizza Kitchen:

  • Quinoa and Arugula Salad (plus a protein)
  • Asparagus and Arugula salad ( I recommend getting two as they’re very small)
  • Cedar Plank Salmon
  • Grilled Chicken Chimichurri
  • Full Cobb Salad (no cheese) with olive oil as your dressing.

Tender Greens: Hot plate, (all the options are good) sub veggies for potatoes, with your choice of salad.
