Eating out on whole30

 
Today is day 3 on whole30 and I'm still going strong. For breakfast I had coffee with coconut milk, eggs, and a grilled plantain( my new favorite food), and for lunch I had a burger patty topped with lettuce, tomato, onions and then I made some homemade sweet potato fries. After lunch today my daughter and I headed to Baton Rouge for our annual back to school shopping trip. She is only 5, but we have been taking this girls trip for 3 years now. This year she is especially excited about it. All she has said is that she wants to get dressed up and go to a "fancy" restaurant. I haven't eaten out yet while being on whole30, so I was a little nervous. When we got to the restaurant she quickly ordered the Mac and cheese. I on the other hand had to study the menu a little. I realized that I didn't have many choices without having to completely change the way it was on the menu. I ordered a ribeye and asked them to just grill it plain with no butter, and I got a side of steamed broccoli. It was pretty good, but the best part was after dinner when we went to whole foods and I made my own almond butter. I waited until we got back to our condo and had a spoonful of that with a handful of grapes. Now I'm feeling good and ready to take on whole30 day 4. Looking forward to more shopping with my daughter tomorrow and the highlights of my day will be another trip to whole foods and a stop at Lululemon. I snapped a quick picture of my meal before I ate the entire thing. Just ignore the large bowl of Mac and cheese in the background. 20120803-205849.jpg

    If you don’t mind me asking, do your children follow Paleo and the mac-n-cheese was just a treat? Whole grains are significant part of my children’s diet: brown rice, oatmeal, etc. In converting the family to Paleo, it would take some adjustment. I am not discouraged whatsoever, just contemplating the change for them.

      My children don’t follow paleo. They eat what I cook for dinner, but they still have grains and sugar in breakfast and lunch. I try my best to keep them eating healthy, but it is very hard. I don’t think they will ever 100% convert to paleo, but I just try to get them to understand what is good and bad…….especially when they are stuffing gummies in their mouth, lol!!!
