Spring Break in Southern Texas

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created February 26, 2012 at 9:20 PM

My boyfriend & I will be visiting family for Spring Break in Weslaco, TX. I know there will probably be a lot of seafood restaurants that will have Paleo friendly options...but I was wondering if anyone is from the area (or has been there) and has any suggestions for good places to eat. (I want to try and be as cheat-free as possible food-wise so I can enjoy some tasty tequila drinks and maybe a bottle of Coke in Mexico) We'll probably go to South Padre/Port Isabel/Brownsville areas, too. We'll also go over the border into Mexico at least once. So if you have any good spots for us to try, let me know :)

Another thing... On our way to/from Texas we will be in the Atlanta, GA airport for a total of 5 hours (I'm still confused by airplanes-leave from Iowa, stop in Georgia, then finish in Texas) I know this place is like a mini-town so if anyone has spent significant time here and knows of anywhere to eat in the airport, that information would be helpful, too. (Last time I was there I was pre-Paleo and had a chicken salad sandwich on a croissent with salt & vinegar chips..ha)

Thanks everyone! Jen

+1 on Moe's. I have one nearby and it's my go-to whenever I'm really hungry and really lazy.

I'm googling Moe's right now, looks like the chicken is cage-free & no hormones, beef is grass-fed, and fresh veggies. Looks like they probably use soy bean oil but I can live with that. Thanks for the tip.

I am not sure of all the ingredients but there is a place called Moe's Southwest Grill at the airport. It like a chipotle. You could get a burrito bowl. The only issue like most places is the oil but I wouldn't worry too much about it. Pop some fish oil.

TX should be easy. BBQ with no sauce and some greens. Again slight oil issues but a week won't be a big deal assuming you are pretty healthy. Just keep you carb levels lower to account for the drinks pop some fish oil and you should be getting plenty of vitamin D spring breaking.

Have a blast!!

I don't know much about the airport, but if you're worried about going hungry for 5 hours, just throw a bag of almonds in your carry-on to munch on while you wait. I've gone breakfast to dinner on almonds on a few trips where I don't plan on being able to find acceptable food and been perfectly fine.
