    Alliea got a reaction from Keri W. in Whole30 and Five Guys   
    When I was in the middle of my Whole30 (a month and half ago!) I wrote to Five Guys about their ingredients. Even though they have their nutritional info online, I grilled them (no pun) about any hidden ingredients that might now have been mentioned. I just now heard back from them. Here's what they said:
    Since 1986 Five Guys has focused on serving the freshest product in the simplest way possible. We do not add
    anything to our products. Our burgers are NOT seasoned, they are simply 80/20 ground beef, our mushrooms
    are sauteed on a flat top grill as they are with NO oil or butter. Our produce is cut fresh daily and does not have
    anything added to it as well. In fact, our nutritional information is located on website www.fiveguys.com if you
    would like you can also find the Five Guys story located under the About us tab.
    So, in the case of Five Guys, if you are willing to have a hamburger patty on a lettuce "bun" with just vegetables of various sorts as condiments, sounds like they would be legal in the Whole30 world. Since finishing the Whole30, I've been glad that I did this sort of research. I'm not eating out nearly as much, but when I do, I often just go paleo for that meal and that helps me feel like I'm not eating a bunch of garbage just because I'm eating out.

    You can eat Chipotle on the Whole30--just not all that many things there. You can have a salad (no dressing) with carnitas, any kind of salsa except corn, and guacamole. The combination is pretty good.

    I had the craziest dream last night! What really happened: I got a phone call at 5am to say I didn't have to come to work because of low census. Awesome! I could go back to sleep for the impending Snowmaggedon.
    Dream: Went into work even though I was called off, then couldn't find my way out of the hospital. Lots of corridors later, I bump into MELISSA HARTWIG who is there to give me a consultation. We go into a library. We have our consultation and she tells me lots of things that are wrong with my diet. She starts eating a bowl of white rice and carrots (!) and tells me it is just fine to eat that. I'm feeling guilty for not eating the right things. She leaves our area and I lose her yoga mat in a river going down the middle of the street next to the library, which is all actually a hospital hallway. Then I am scared she will be mad that I lost her yoga mat, and I run down the street, which becomes a regular hallway, and I become naked.....and have to hide in a bathroom so no one will see me.
    Bwaaa haa haa! Now that was a DREAM!
    Note to self: Do not watch Hartwig videos before going to bed.

    Five Guys doesn't say their meat is organic or grass-fed, so I would assume it isn't. I like that they prepare it cleanly, and I might eat there occasionally, but not on a regular basis.
