Eating out and adhering to eating Paleo can be a challenging feat.
If you get tired of salads like me, order a sandwich without the bread. I love a grilled chicken sandwich, minus the bun, with lettuce, tomato and bacon on top. There are many restaurants that have gluten-free menus. They might not be perfectly Paleo, but it gets you a little closer.
Here are some of my favorite meals that I eat when I’m on the go:
Chicken Hummus Power Bowl – minus the hummus. I ask for 2 packets of mayo for my “dressing”. It needs some sort of dressing without the hummus. I use Haan Safflower Mayo at home. Away I cheat a little because there is soybean oil.
Order sandwiches as an “Un-wich”. They will wrap it in lettuce.
Grand Traverse Pie Company
Chicken Focaccia – swap the focaccia for gluten-free bread (bread is pretty close to paleo minus corn starch), no ranch, no swiss, add lettuce, add tomato
Chicken Cherry Salad
Gluten Free Chicken Breast with sweet potato as side (without toppings – I asked for just cinnamon, I think it was still cinnamon and sugar due to the taste). Sometimes I want to be like Buddy the Elf and go around with a small bottle of maple syrup to add just a tad to sweet potatoes. 🙂
Salad bowl with chicken, mild salsa, guacamole
Burrito Bowl – Chicken, tomato, lettuce, and guacamole
Grilled Chicken Sandwich – minus the bun, add bacon and side salad – no cheese, no croutons
Grilled Chicken Pecan Salad – no croutons, no cheese
Baby Back Ribs and side salad – no croutons, no cheese
Gluten-free pizza crust with your favorite yummy toppings – I love ham and pineapple, no cheese
Chicken Skewer and asparagus
Steak (ask to hold the butter), Sweet Potato (hold the butter), side salad – no cheese or croutons
Gluten-Free Mongolian Beef
Gluten-Free Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Egg Drop Soup
Flourless Chocolate Cake (cheating a bit, but sooo tasty and it’s gluten-free)
