Sherry and I have always done our best to find restaurants that are either Paleo-friendly, or have Paleo options for us to eat when we don’t feel like cooking. Fortunately, there are many options available that are surprisingly Paleo. One such (not very surprising) restaurant is a local Mediterranean restaurant called Nadia’s.
Just about all the meat options are grilled on a skewer with just some olive oil on it, and the staff substitute the rice with grilled skewered vegetables for us. On our last visit, the cook remembered that I ordered Baba Ganoush with cucumber slices substituting the pita slices, and he brought some out for me. I was thrilled! I love Baba Ganoush, and it’s surprisingly delicious with some cucumber slices. My main dish was Chicken Shawarma and Toum (a garlic sauce). The Shawarma is normally served on rice with salad, but they served it with the aforementioned grilled vegetables for me. Sherry got a mixed grilled plate which had some beef, lamb, and chicken, all of which she said was delicious.
The best part about all this food is that it’s very Paleo friendly. It’s also very reasonably priced, and relatively quick to prepare, so we don’t have to wait long for our food to show up. As a neat plus, the kitchen is open, so you can see everything being made as you wait. There are no surprises, and nothing to be concerned with. It’s great!
I will cover some other restaurant types here in the coming days to go over what Sherry and I are able to eat at different restaurants to give you an idea of what to look for when you find yourself out for dinner with family or friends or when you just don’t want to cook for yourself. There are always healthy options available.
