At the top, there’s Cobb Salad

The other day, I ate lunch at Gap Inc. headquarters in San Francisco. It happens to be on the top floor, and it's beautiful. I was surprised to see their cafeteria serve grass-fed beef and poultry as well as EVERYTHING being organic. I default to the Cobb Salad, because in most cafeterias it's the one dish that you'll find with that's gluten-free (minus the croutons), high in protein, no lectins, and actually fills you up!

If you're struggling with living a Zoleo lifestyle with a busy schedule or on the road, check out the fast food survival guide in our Nutritionize Power Packet Download for ideas and suggestions, and here are some more:

  1. Most Indian food places will serve "Chiken Tikka" breast, which is lean and tastes awesome. Then get the Palak Paneer (spinach w/cheese cubes) and another vegetable. The fat content will usually be very high, however if you have been Zoleo for some time, you will be burning fat as a primary energy source anyway.
  2. If you're driving around a lot, here's a great snack you can eat with one hand that will hold you until your next meal.
    1. A few slices of deli meat (put it in a sandwich bag so your hand stays clean)
    2. 1 cup of seasonal berries (i.e. strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.)
    3. Handful of almonds
  3. When in doubt, go for the Cobb Salad w/no croutons!

    Chris, it’s a zip file. You can use WinZip to open it or any other file decompression tool.
