Is a doner kebab that bad?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 09, 2011 at 4:43 PM

I was contemplating fast food options under paleo, and getting myself used to the idea that fast food must just become a thing of the past. And found myself day-dreaming about doner kebabs...and thinking, it's basically high fat content meat and salad...so forget the pitta bread and you have the ideal paleo fast food meal. True or false?

Gyros are nowhere close to the deliciousness of doner kebab, at least the ones in Belgium. :P

If it's infrequent enough, just eat it with the pita. No sense in bastardizing something you really enjoy.

This was asked in a more Amerocentric way not that long ago: http://paleohacks.com/questions/61713/is-gyro-meat-remotely-paleo#axzz1fn96uAnA

Yep. I'd agree with this and also that the downsides of döner are comparatively minor. I always go for the garlic yogurt sauce. Mmm. Döner.

Whenever you eat out there's a risk with the oils used to cook in, but it's not the sort of thing to cause you to crave or mess up your insulin.

And the whole point of eating properly is that your body is robust enough to handle occasional toxins and imbalances.

I always avoid "Donner Party" kebobs whenever possible.

a typical "Halifax Donair" is topped with a thick sauce made of evaporated milk, sugar, vinegar and garlic :(
