First time Whole30... help!

Recommended Posts

My husband and I are celebrating our anniversary this weekend with a little staycation away from our one-year-old for the first time. It's hard enough that we can't have wine, but we're doing this together and it will be a great celebration either way. Right now we're on day 19 and we're not screwing it up now!!


That said... any suggestions on a nice dinner out?? There are several nice steak places near our hotel but I don't even really know what to ask about as far as their seasoning/cooking, etc. The obvious stuff is easy, but I don't want to overlook hidden ingredients.


Thanks for your help!!

You CAN eat out on the Whole30.


That doesn't mean you can expect to eat just ANYWHERE and find compliant food. Sad but true, many (but not all) of the cheap, fast places won't have an option other than a dry salad. You might have to go to a more expensive restaurant. You do get what you pay for, most of the time.


Yes, you have to ask questions and get answers. Some of us aren't that comfortable doing so, but you know what? This is personal growth!


Don't be "That Guy/Gal" who shuffles meekly about taking what you are given. If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten - and you deserve better than the stuff these companies offer you as nourishment solely for their own profits. Demand what you want and you'll get it.


You shouldn't feel you have to accept food that isn't made of quality ingredients. It's really not asking too much.


You can do this!


Good luck, and enjoy each other!
