Whole30, Day 10: A Foray Into Restaurant Food

leave a comment »

I was out of the house today and only ate breakfast at home–what I would have considered lunch was consumed at a cafe, where I surreptitiously snacked on nuts because they’d run out of the vegetable soup on their menu.

The salad with steak was sort of a late lunch/early dinner hybrid at Panera–I discovered that the chicken in the chicken salads there is pretty much off-limits because the seasoning contains sugar or rice starch, but the steak seems to be OK. Most of the salads were also forbidden because of sugar or dairy, but I think everything in the Greek salad was OK aside from the feta cheese, which they left out on my request.

I had dinner at a bar with friends while we were doing trivia, and while the burger itself was delicious, my friends’ burger buns and melted cheese looked fantastic, and tempting. I asked the waitress if there was any sugar in the mayonnaise or anything mixed into the burger–she said no. It’s possible I violated some of the rules with the burger plate but there’s really a limit to how annoying and fussy I want to be in a crowded bar at dinnertime.
