    I've learned to navigate just about any menu, although most mexican food joints can be slightly more difficult around here. But, to the point, we have a little place in town, a tavern that advertises their burgers are all from grass-fed cows. They've finally stopped looking at me funny when I tell them to keep their bread.

      Applebees, like probably all of those sit down chains fry everything in soybean oil, not to mention ingredient lists that are impossible to pronounce. I'd classify chains, especially the "nicer" sit down ones as being the most antiprimal.

      If I need to eat on the go, a safe bet anywhere is a decent Japanese place, or any restaurant that can offer some type of steamed veggies, baked potato, rice, a salad, and/or grilled or steamed meat/fish. If this is too difficult to find, the supermarket is my best friend - fruit, cold cuts, rice crackers and salsa...

        San Diego Favorites:

        Rei do Gabo Brazilian Churascurio. Serious Primal pig-out heaven.

        The Wellington Steak and Martini Lounge. Best grassfed steaks in town. Expensive and elegant.

        On the Range. Free range meat and poultry. More of a lunch place.

        The Burger Lounge. Grassfed burgers with a lettuce wrap option. People don't look at you funny for going bunless.

          If you live in TX or California, you MUST check out Freebirds.

          It's a pretty big chain, very similar to a hippie version of Chipotle. But the key? 100% grass fed steak and it's awesome. I get a steak salad their at least twice a week. It's tasty and tender. Sometimes I get an extra side of steak to eat at home.

            I noticed one of the restaurants you mention is Applebees. I received a gift card for $40 and I have gone over the entire online menu and can't find much Primal to eat. Their menu may be being narrowed in selection by the fact that I'm still needing to lose some more weight. Two or three of us "girls" want to go out to eat. Could you make some suggestions from the menu. We are Calif. and you are Utah, would that make a difference?

              for fast food in Toronto, best bet I'd say Hero Burger, for a sit-down meal, earth Bloor West has some nice choices.
              it does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live

              at just the right time, we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up

                IMO soy is kind of hard to get around these days unless you eat at home. We do cook most of the time. If I'm going out to eat, I'm more relaxed about it. I don't think any restaurant is perfect. Primal = meat, veggies, avoid grains. Try not to overcomplicate it.

                when we go to applebees, I like to get shrimp and sub rice with veggies, or go for a grilled chicken salad or something.

                  Thanks, that makes it simple enough. I eat out very seldom too. I'll do my best and just enjoy!

                    I take advantage of this existing thread for my proposal.

                    Has anybody thought of listing the primal/paleo friendly restaurants, a kind of Michelin Guide, divided per countries and cities? And with stars and suggestions in the menu, too, maybe?
                    I know where to eat when in Geneva (and surroundings). The idea is to build a list that is as much comprehensive as possible so everybody can keep being primal... even during holidays, business trips, etc.

                    We are quite a lot here, and coming from different places, I think it can be done relatively quickly (and frequently updated, too, of course).



                    Cheers,
                    Alex
