In-N-Out. It’s about as synonymous with “California” as Sublime and the beach. Am I right, or am I right? Since I no longer reside in California (don’t feel sorry for me, I now have legitimate mountains as my playground) it’s practically a sacrilege to not drop by In-N-Out and play at the beach while visiting.
I realize when it comes to burgers that “buns make it fun” but Animal Style will wreck a bikini bod faster than you can say “Double-Double!” And considering I was in the Golden State to do that once-a-year-Thanksgiving-thing where I eat so much I gain 7 pounds in one day, I figured it would be smart to Paleo hack it.
So here it is, my Paleo-hack that’s not on their typical menu:
“Double Meat mustard fried with grilled onions, chopped chillies, and extra tomatoes protein style. Please hold the spread.”
I’ll break it down:
Double Meat – Two meat patties, no cheese.
Mustard fried – They’ll put mustard on my meat patty before grilling it.
Grilled onions – Typical In-N-Out burgers come with raw onions but i prefer them grilled.
Chopped chillies – Because some like a little more zing!
Extra tomatoes – It makes my double meat extra beefy.
Protein Style – No bun. They wrap it in hand-leafed lettuce instead.
The best thing about this hack is it leaves me feeling full and NOT bloated with enough gas to take me to Memphis. Double double points.
Until next time, California!
