I recently came across Robb Wolf’s The Road Forager blog posts which have been a life saver when traveling. He pretty much Paleo Hacks all sorts of restaurant foods. I tried the original recommendation of “Burrito Bowl, no rice, no beans, double meat, salsa, and guac” but it was way too much meat for me to finish. How sad. I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller… I wish I could put down meat like a man. Plus, I wish I had more vegetables (good thing “veggie” isn’t a Paleo expletive like it is on Epic Meal Time.)
So, now my order is a (Meat) Salad, hold the rice, hold the beans (insert weird look from Chipotle employee here), two scoops mild salsa, one scoop hot salsa (because mama likes it hot.) I’m probably going to Paleo Hell for skipping the guac but, listen, the first and last time I got guac at Chipotle I ended up feeling grossly nauseous. Plus, once I unintentionally laid my hand in seagull poop and it looked EXACTLY, I mean ex-act-ly, like guac and sourcream mixed together. So, I think I’ll pass on seagull poop in my food.
If you find yourself passing through Philadelphia, my favorite Chipotle is the one located here. They have a super friendly staff that aren’t stank with the ingredients and they play swanky music with a W Hotel vibe which makes eating Paleo extra sexy.
