JLaq143 posted a topic in Travel and Dining OutMy family is going out to dinner at an Afghani restaurant tonight for my sister's birthday, and, being a good little Whole30er, I called the restaurant before they opened (when they wouldn't be busy) so I could ask all of my questions about compliant oils, marinades and seasonings, etc. Just based on ingredients, Afghani food seems like a good choice, because it's primarily grilled meat and vegetables -- and this restaurant even uses grass-fed beef and lamb! Anyway, the store manager told me that ALL of the meat is pre-marinated in corn oil, even the ground meats, but that customers with allergies in the past have ordered grilled chicken or beef with the marinade rinsed off before grilling, and that they haven't had any problems. I think I already know the answer, but... would this be acceptable? Otherwise I'll be going to this amazing restaurant and just eating a bowl of plain lettuce. Not the end of the world, but not exactly enjoying my life either. Can some moderators chime in on this? Thanks!
I have attempted the Whole 30, lasted 5 days and gave up. Unfortunately, I didn't pick a great time in my personal calendar. It was loaded with social engagements that made being compliant extremely difficult. I have however, found great value in following the shopping lists and meal plan template! I am trying to do the best I can with what my schedule and budget will allow. I have historically purchased my meat in bulk and then packaged them in smaller bags with a marinade. This has been great because I have been able to pull them from the freezer and while they thaw they marinade. This has allowed me to not eat the same boring plain chicken/pork each night. I have been using the Lawry's 30 min marinades - which I know is not compliant! I am looking for simple compliant marinades that are flavorful. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
