  • primal take-out

    Hi all,

    I have a question about eating out. The hubby is out of town and the schedule's a little tight this week. I would love to pick up take-out on the way home tomorrow. It's just me and the cavebabies (age 1 1/2 and 3). Any suggestions? We eat gluten-free and mostly primal at home -- the girls have some GF grain foods sometimes.

    Thanks!

    Also, does any know if there are Indian food options?

    Most grocery stores will have a prepared foods section. It's super-easy to pick up some prepared salad and already cooked meat. As for stuff that will get delivered to your door, that I don't know.

      Anywhere that sells meat, IMO. Steak houses, BBQ pits. I am in similiar position as OP and just called hubs to see if he would mind if Grokling & I went for some BBQ tonight

        Isn't BBQ sugary, though?

          Indian! Tandoori mixed grill = a ton of meat with no mystery sauces. I'm also partial to saag paneer (spinach, cheese, and a TON of butter). (Paneer is a strange non-melty cheese, the consistency is about that of tofu.) Saag with any kind of meat is also good if you don't like paneer.

            Why are we afraid of sugar? I must be missing something if we can't have sugar, honey, maple syrup, or agave. What the heck do you sweeten stuff with? I thought it was fine in moderation.

              When we go to BBQ joints, I order it without the sauce. Also, one of our fave BBQ places has a mustard BBQ sauce with little to no sugar. I go for that or none. Some dry rubs will contain sugar - usually not in huge amounts. Sometimes I just call that part of my 20% if I'm craving some good BBQ.

                @dr bork bork: In moderation, sure, it's fine. Even Mark puts sugar in his coffee. But a lot of BBQ sauce has HFCS as one of the first ingredients - ew!

                Mostly I sweeten stuff with honey or stevia, but that's rare. My palate for sweet stuff is such that a grapefruit doesn't need sweetened.

                @OP: when we eat out, it's usually chipotle. you could pre-order it & pick it up on the way home. OR, grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery. YUM.

                  I doubt it's gluten free but one of our epic cheatish meals are naked "Jamaican hot" wings from a local wing delivery place. So un- breaded and swimming in hot hot hot jerk sauce. So good. A lot of the jarred jerk sauce has a bit of brown sugar but pretty clean otherwise.

                    Great ideas... I might google Indian to be sure. The grocery store might be good, too. I'm gluten-intolerant, so eating out can be limiting. I love carolina barbecue, but no can do. Our local place tells us there's no gluten in the things I've ordered, but I have a fun 4-day reaction anyway. I guess it's a cross-contamination issue.

                      depends what your idea of moderation is.
                      if you are adding sugar to everything then its probably too much.
                      also depends on if you want to lose body fat. sugar spikes insulin... drives fat into cells... prevents cells from releasing fat for energy (very simplified explanation). the goal is to get your body to release stored body fat for fuel. if you keep spiking the insulin that wont happen, or will happen very slowly.

                        Does anyone know if Gyros are primal? ... without the pita of course.

                          I've heard that sometimes breadcrumbs/wheat is used as a binder in gyro meat, so I'd ask whoever works at the gyro place before eating it.

                            Depends on what part of the country you live in. B.b.q. joints don't use sauce around here, dry rubs. Some are a little sweet, others not at all. It's blasphemy to put sauce on Q in these parts.

                              Well, I don't regularly sweeten stuff. I was using stevia but I'm trying not having any sweeteners for awhile. I know it's going to creep in here and there when I eat out. You can't control everything. However, I regard sweet things as a special treat.

                              Also, the title of the thread is "primal take out". I was assuming they wanted something that fit pretty squarely within primal principles. I don't see thick, syrupy sweet sauces matching that description.
