Last night I went to Outback steak house, by far is one of my favorite restaurants but due to me being on strict paleo diet it can be hard. Sunday is my usual “cheat day” or “carb it up” day, which is OK but I found myself trying to eat paleoish anyway, so I took upon myself “how would I paleo here?” and although I know some people like sweet potato fries I’m not a fan so that was not an option.
As the waiter was taking my order I asked for my 2 sides I said:
- “Can I just have 2 house salads?”
I’ve never asked before as most of the time it’s not an option but tried it anyway, he smiled and said “Sure” he even asked if I wanted both before the meat or one before and one with the meat, said before was ok and olive oil and vinegar (red wine) for dressing.
I thought “OK I got this” I ordered the “Outback special” (7oz) medium rare and just wondered “how the HECK I’m going to get the good fats?”. Now it might just be me, but having the good fats is the hard part of the paleo part, wat dinner and said “I can just drive home and eat there some almonds” but as I was getting the check I asked “Do you have any almonds?” the waiter looked at me and said “let me check on the back” and came back 3 minutes with a handfull of almonds! sliced and all, in a nice little small container.
So yes, it is possible to paleo at outback, that was a fast and easy way to do it!
Until the next time….
