Which "non-paleo" option is best when I didn't prepare?

  • For fat loss. Got back into town late last night, and sadly, didn't prepare anything for work today. Unfortunately, almost everything around me is Vegan rolls eyes. A couple of options I have: acai bowl (w water instead of milk), a gluten free oat bar (agave, cinnamon, sunflower seeds, almonds, etc) <-- Starbucks, annnnd that's about it? If it's not Vegan, there are Pizza places all around. There's also a place next door that has a 1/2 lb burger?

Maybe that's what it was. Crazy.

IHOP has commercials talking about how they add pancake batter to omelettes.

Though, I think I read on here somewhere that Big Boy adds pancake mix to their scrambled eggs. Crazy.

Ummmm. if it is an "oat" bar, it isn't "grain free". Oats are a grain.

Good point. I wonder how much that happens. I would have thought a burger place would just use plain ground beef. Why not? But I'm sure I'm being naive.

another concern is what fillers might be used in the burger.

lol, SHE* doesn't generally see the harm in it, but I have had these grain free oat bars a coupla' times before when I was hungry, so I didn't know what kind of damage that'd be?

good idea. especially if budget is not a big concern. otherwise, you end up paying for 2 meals.

Get a kick-ass pile of veggies or a salad from one of the Vegan places, and top with a bunless burger from the burger joint. :-) If the burger joint has a salad bar, or a decent selection of "toppings", you can probably make a decent meal out of just the burger joint.

Get the burger without the bun. Eat with knife and fork. Add lettuce, tomatoes, onions, etc if you like. Add bacon if they have it. Add fried egg if they have it. Use mustard if you want a condiment. Not really a bad option at all even if beef is grain fed. Only potential concerns I'd have is quality of beef (e.g., hormones) and slightly less omega 3s in the beef. Both of those aren't a big deal if this is a one off meal.

What would be the problem of being a grain-free, soy-free vegan for a day?

If you're keto-adapted, you could fast.
