Sorry about this, doubt any of you will know for sure.. Going to Benicassim festival in Spain in a month, will there be a fair amount of paleo options do you think? Stressing!

Spain is easy, especially if you eat a bit of dairy.

Tortilla Espanola (A frittata of eggs, potatoes, onions & olive oil) was my breakfast staple in Barcelona.

You can get yummy seafood, meat, sausages, cheese and fruit anywhere on the coast. Local vegetables are not so easy, but I don't go to Spain to eat salads!

Try the horchata, if you don't mind a bit of sugar--really refreshing!

tapas! mushrooms (or anything) a l'ajillo (garlic in wine sauce)

grilled asparagus in EVOO

tortilla espanol most always has fried potatoes, optional topped with sauteed onions and gouda cheese, skip the bread, served mostly cool

roasted red peppers in EVOO

they love fish, but most are fried (whole)

jamon serrano carved right off the leg

gaspacho, a cold soup made with mostly fresh ingredients and veggies added (the sauce is often made with jared tomato sauce which is more juice if you ask me than sauce)

no worries, you'll find more clean food options than in the states in most restaurants

I lived in Madrid, loved it!! Had dark cirles under my eyes the entire time (thought it was all the red wine, but maybe not now that I'm wiser)

...ah, can we go with?? :)

have fun, its an awesome place!!

Don't stress! You're going to Spain. Of all the countries in the world that I have been to, the food in Spain is my favorite. My advice would be to forget about Paleo as much as you can while you're there and just enjoy the experience, because who knows when you'll be back? If you don't have any serious intolerances or allergies, then eat whatever you damn well want! If you insist on trying to remain as Paleo as possible, then it probably won't be too tough as long as you know Spanish.

Plenty of options. The food is simple and natural. Lots of fish, meat, salad and olives! I live in Barcelona and have no problems whatsoever. The produce is amazing here too!

Spain is the land of ham, chorizo, and other piggy goodness. Lots of good cheap red wine, too. Olives, olive oil, peppers, tomatoes - all plentiful. You'll survive.
