    McAlister's

    I didn't end up going. I think, like GFChris said, the grilled chicken salad is the only option. You would have to call ahead to check those other things (which I didn't do because I didn't go, lol).

    Plan a Whole30 dream vacation

    The Whole 9 Cruise Line! Seriously! That would be AMAZING. A 30 day cruise (hey we're dreaming right?). All food served in the restaurants on the cruise liner are, naturally, W30 compliant with such a creative menu that no one would ever get bored. There would be workshops available for every one of the nine factors, with theory to help us understand exactly why each one is important and practical tips to start creating good habits. Not to mention, what better place for exercise, relaxation and FUN than a cruise ship! Massage therapists, jacuzzi tubs, games, basketball courts, a running deck, fitness room, live entertainment... the possibilities are endless. Each guest on the cruise would get to pick one of the nine factors that they want to focus on during their stay. Depending on that, they get bonus treats. For example, if you decided that you wanted to focus on nutrition, perhaps you would get to pick three or four of your favorite meals and have one of Whole 9 Cruise's master chefs teach you step by step how to make each recipe so you have some ammunition when you get home! Or if you chose relaxation you would get a few free vouchers to the massage therapist and some personal lessons in relaxation technique. Or if you chose fun and play you would get a free excursion for every two workshops you attend on the topic! The destination would have to be the Mediterranean Sea, because it's my dream right now and that's where I would go if I could! Every port would have the typical touristy and adventuresome excursion options, but there would also be Whole30 tour guides available to walk you through local restaurants and food stands to show you how to enjoy all the best W30 compliant options in the native city. Everyone would get their very own complimentary copy of "It Starts with Food" and we would all take time during the 30 day trip to read (or reread) it, perhaps with a daily reading guide and Q&A time every week. If I had the time and the resources and also lived in a reality where this existed I would totally do it! (And FYI if this ever actually comes into existence I know I will, of course, be given a complimentary cruise for being so brilliant )

    McAlister's

    Oh man I'm going to feel bad calling and asking all of that! LOL Is that the only thing on the menu that looks compliant?

    McAlister's

    I searched the forums for this particular restaurant but didn't find it anywhere, so I hope I'm not reposting! I have a dinner devotion at McAlister's on the 22nd and I need to know if I can actually attend and stay compliant! Can some more experienced W30ers check the menu and see if there is anything on there I can have? Soup was my first thought, but their soups are always changing and I don't want to get there and not have any approved soup available! When I called it also sounds like most of their soup is non-compliant anyway. So then I looked at the salads, she said their grilled chicken has no added sugar so would that be my best bet? A grilled chicken salad with oil and vinegar dressing? Do I need to dig further on their chicken to see if it's compliant? Is there anything else on the menu I might possibly be able to eat?
