Dude, believe me, not every restaurant has butter these days. I specifically asked for clarified at a restaurant, and they brought a yellow liquid substance that smelled like feet and tasted worse. When I called them on it, the manager unapologetically said, "That's what we have. We call it butter."

Yep know that feeling! my advice Pray to the god of paleo and seek primal pennance! You find out you just ate some crap like that and feel like you just poisoned your own body, now i just look at it that most people eat this junk 100% of the time. Went for a nice bbq the other day only to find that the chef was using veggie oil to coat the meat before grilling! (AS if meat needs veggie oil!) and also adding some sweet marinade sauce. I took one for the team (not wanting to hurt their feelings).Unfortunately most people still eat this crap and we have to live in the world.

Canola is just as bad as soy, but in unique horribly ways. You should be avoiding all vegetable and seed oils.

On a "30 day challenge" I would try to avoid it -- I mean, it's only 30 days, and it's not a big deal to be very strict, right?

After that, while you should prep your food whenever you can, I wouldn't sweat it too much if you go out to eat every great once in a while.

if you do butter you can normally get your eggs or whatever cooked in that if you ask. you might not find coconut oil and tallow in restaurants, but who doesnt use butter?

Yeah, I have been trying to avoid it, I originally thought he used olive oil......but he wasn't....no more omelets from the chef downstairs.

I usually eat at home but didn't have time, I've been traveling Mon-Thurs of the 30 Day Challenge which is why it's been particularly difficult for me. Today I had no time to make an omelet so I just had one down stairs....and wala....my 5 slip.....oh well, I'm going grocery shoping today.
