My husband and I are driving from our home in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada through Canada to Vancouver, BC, then down the Pacific coast through Seattle and Portland to San Francisco, and then east through Salt Lake City, Des Moines or (Omaha), Chicago and back home again. Through each of those cities (and obviously a few more) we'll be stopping to eat.
Which is why I'm posting here. I have a very solid hunch that we'll find some pretty awesome restaurants and farmers markets along our way but especially on the west coast. But we could really use Primal community's help in finding them!
We're not die hard Primalists right now, but we're trying to be... for example I've heard of In-n-Out burger all my life but never seen the place... so I'm going there, no doubt about it... I'll probably go Protein Style for burger, and my husband definitely will. But I'll likely get fries too ... because potatoes may actually be the love of my life.
The area that we'll stay in the longest is San Francisco. 3-4 days.
I can't help with those cities but when I travel I like to research Yelp ahead of time. You can try broad search terms like "meat".
In the US the mediocre chains are very good at dominating the highway exits so it pays to dig a little deeper and find the local gems.
Lots of: urban hiking, cycling, sprinting
Lots of: fresh meat, seafood, eggs, organs, tubers, starch fruits, vegetables, meat fat, dairy fat, oil fruits
Some: cured meat, dairy protein, sweet fruits, rice, pulses, tree nuts, oil seeds
Minimal: soy, refined proteins, sugar, liquid carbohydrate, grains, refined oils, peanuts
Sounds like some great plans!
At InO, order your Double Doubles "protein style" and they will wrap in lettuce for you (if you don't want cheese, just tell them).
In Portland, there is a place called Dick's Kitchen, I've seen ads in Paleo Magazine, that, although, not specifically Paleo, is Paleo friendly. I've never been, but would love to hear your thoughts if you do eat there.
Just a note on grocery store rotisserie, do check ingredients, some do use soy/gluten on their chickens.
Have a fun and safe trip!
Chipotle is always a great fast-food-style eatery. Barbacoa, guacamole, fajita veggies, extra tomato....heaven.
