If you go to an American restaurant, a good option is always a burger without the bun. Also make sure to specify no ketchup, mayo or mustard. But there’s nothing wrong with some delicious ground beef with pickles, tomato, onions, and lettuce on top. If you order french fries or sweet potato fries, make sure to ask what kind of fat they’re cooked in and (for SPF) whether there’s sugar added.
Asian restaurants are great! Yummy stir frys are my go-to here. Often Thai restaurants will cook their stir frys in coconut milk, yum! Ask for no rice; sometimes (Ginger Thai in Carytown) they’ll sub extra veggies! Again, ask about the fats used for cooking.
At Mexican restaurants, I order fajitas without the tortilla. Then it’s just a stir fry with guacamole! Make sure you ask for no cheese or sour cream. Lots of things are Whole30 friendly here. Read the ingredients and make sure you’re not getting dairy, corn, bread, or beans.
