Eating out Whole30 Style

Eating out while on the Whole30 is, quite frankly, a pain in the patootie. If you are like me and hate to grill the server on every aspect of the meal the best thing to do is to research online first. Which is why I spent a good hour checking out menus Sunday night (rather than surfing Pinterest). If any eatery is reading this-could you please create a search feature in your allergen menus? I mean, it would be so much easier to, say, type in No Soy, No Gluten, and then get a list of acceptable plates. I'm sure there are algorithms available!

Having a list of possibilities took away a lot of the eating out stress. Once we were seated instead of having to ask a bazillion questions I only had to ask a couple, mostly related around sugar since I couldn't find that info online. We ended up at Chili's, not exactly the mecca of foodiedom but it had big screens and Hubby had to watch the National Championship Game. I ended up with the Caribbean Salad (greens, pineapple, grilled chicken, cranberries, mandarin oranges, diced bell peppers, sesame seeds, green onions, and cilantro) sans dressing. Quite tasty, I especially liked the odd  flavor of pineapple and cilantro in the same bite-I have to experiment more with that combination.
