Veterans: What would you do? Ate wrong food...

While eating out with family I ordered a burger, no buns with mustard, tomato, onion, pickle and lettuce. I also ordered a side of French fries because were allowed to have potatoes. After about 4 of them, it dawned on me that I have no idea if they baked them or deep fried them not do I know what kind of oil they used.

Is eating 4 potentially, more than likely bad fries enough to make my body need a reset? I'm 2 weeks into this and I would be willing to go two weeks longer after finish date before reintroduction if it is necessary! Just crazy if something that small messes with your body enough to need to start over. :) what is your guys opinion?

Thanks!

Here is the scoop on french fries. They are not allowed on the whole30 regardless of off-plan oils (although they almost certainly had off plan oil):

Chips or Fries: Not if they’re commercially prepared or deep-fried. While we recognize that potatoes are a real food, we also know that eating them in the form of fries and chips has turned them from “produce” into an adulterated commercial “product.” It’s easy to find sweet potato, beet, or vegetable chips or restaurant fries that meet the Whole30 ingredient standards. It is not easy, however, to consume those fries or chips in a way that’s true to the spirit of the Whole30. It’s hard to find a suitable place for them in our meal planning template (no, half a bag of “Sweets and Beets” is not an appropriate way to fill your plate with vegetables), and even harder to stop yourself from eating them when the designated serving comes to an end. For most of us, chips and fries are a bonafide food-with-no-brakes, and fall into that deep, dark area of less-healthy foods with technically compliant ingredients. For that reason we do not allow commercially-prepared fries or chips, or deep-frying starchy veggies and turning them into fries or chips during your Whole30. (However, if you want to roast some kale until it’s crispy, or thinly slice jicama into a scoop for your guacamole, be our guest.)- See more at: http://whole30.com/2014/07/new-whole30/#sthash.EJU2qR9p.dpuf
