Paleo Buffet- Is It Possible?
Without a doubt.
Don’t get me wrong; I’m certainly not professing that it’s commonplace to walk into any given restaurant and find a selection of grass fed meats, loads of fresh, organic veggies and wild fish to choose from, however, with just a little bit of question asking, it’s actually quite easy to make a buffet work in your favor.
The image above is a selection of fresh island veggies I got at the breakfast buffet the other morning in Hawaii.
The omelet chef had spinach, mushrooms, onions, tomato, avocado and peppers as options for egg combinations already; so I just asked him if there were other veggies available as well, and he replied that yes, the kitchen had a lot of other options and asked what I’d like.
This is not specific to this particular occasion.
I’ve had similar success at buffets in Vegas, New York, Austin and Washington, just to name a few off the top of my head.
I’ve also found it easy, by the way, to even order at the most unlikely of places- such as a Denny’s when my husband was doing one of his ultra running races in the middle of nowhere and there were no other options available!
In that last case, no, the eggs were not likely farm fresh, nor were the salad greens local and farm fresh, but still, an omelet with frozen spinach over iceberg lettuce and tomato with a fruit cup on the side is far more Paleo than their Grand Slam (is that what they call it?).
So, bottom line… just ask (nicely) and you’ll (likely) receive!
