Conference in San Antonio

Recommended Posts

I will be at a conference Tuesday to Friday in San Antonio and staying at the Hyatt by the Riverwalk. Suggestions on where to eat?  Suggestions for how to handle buffet meals during the conference?

Two words: PLAN AHEAD.

Call ahead to the hotel to speak directly to someone about the ingredients on the buffet, you may be able to negotiate a special Whole30 meal every day. Otherwise, assume nothing they're serving but plain salad greens and raw veggies will be compliant. Now's the time to pack your own salad dressing in your purse and stock up on compliant Epic bars, RXbars, packets of tuna, olives, baby carrots.

The tips in this article should prove invaluable: https://whole30.com/2015/03/business-travel/

It won't be easy, but it has been done before and you can do it!

There's a couple of restaurants near the riverwalk that are paleo friendly and source locally. They will probably be your best bet for finding something compliant, or easily making minor adjustments to make something complaint. 5 Points Local is awesome. Pharm Table is all vegetarian (or maybe vegan?)  and does a lot of take out. It's just for lunch. It might be a good way to get the veggie portion of your meal, but bring along some protein. And Feast doesn't necessarily have paleo stuff on the menu, but it's a seasonal restaurant and they are usually more than willing to make accommodations.

Thank You for the SA suggestions!  On Day 34 of my first W60 (found out half way through W30 that I might have been served something non-compliant so going W60). Would love to hear more SA places if you have more to add.
