So today i am going out to lunch at red lobster and want to know what the healthiest paleo option is. I am really bad at decision making so i wanted to hear others opinions. or shoould i just make this my cheat meal for the week? i am only 15 and just got on my break from track, but i am usually really active. though i know seafood is very good and paleo, some options are like cakes and fried, which i don't like fried or want to have it.
Thanks for your feed back i apreciate it!

The "cheat" portion of eating out at a place like Red Lobster can be the shitty oils that they use to cook food in. For the most part, however, you can stick to healthier options: a quick look at their menu shows grilled pork chops, grilled talipia, non-breaded shrimp, lots of "side veggie" options and more.
Granted, I'd avoid a place like Red Lobster overall, but you can put together an acceptable meal there.
Do not use this as an excuse to go completely off your diet ... unless you truly desire that, then go for it. ;-)

In our small city in the desert, Red Lobster is where a lot of friends want to go for something different than the typical steak/Mexican food joint and it is always a birthday or something that I can't decline. I discovered that I do best if I order a garden salad, lemon juice for dressing, and the "add a lobster tail". Since everyone else is usually pigging out, the servers don't object to my "adding on" without having a meal of my own. Obviously I prefer pastured butter, but that isn't going to happen! I just enjoy my relatively inexpensive meal. Most of the time the servers will go get me a few slices of fresh pineapple from the bar for a dessert. No one is offended that I don't eat the same food and it doesn't cause any uproar. NOTE: I am assuming that lobster tail is steamed, and that the only fats I have are regular butter. I know some of you don't do dairy at all, but lobster is still good with lemon or lime juice if you prefer. It's about ten bucks plus the salad and I always drink water anyway.
