Paleo Eats: 6/15/12 & Dinner At Tava (Palo Alto, CA)

Pin It

In this episode of Paleo Eats, you’ll find very little cooking, but all the chow’s still Paleo-compliant. (If you’re looking for recipes, check out my newly spiffed up Recipe Index here.)

While I was performing my zombie drug dealer routine at the hospital, I munched on leftover roasted veggies and Applegate Farms organic roast beef.

For those of you with inquiring minds, I packed my lunch in a stainless steel LunchBots Trio.

When I returned to the hotel at daybreak, I fried up a Thai omelet and gobbled it down with half an avocado.

Then, I stuck in my earplugs, closed the blackout curtains, and promptly passed out.

It was already 6 p.m. when I rolled out of bed. After splashing some water on my face, I picked up Fitbomb and the kids from our now-completely-empty house and headed to Tava for dinner. Tava is a casual Indian take-out spot in Palo Alto’s Town and Country Village. Its concept is similar to that of Chipotle and Asian Box –- you can tailor your own box with high quality ingredients.

In other words, you don’t have to feel like you’re being a pain in the butt when you’re ordering. Yippee for small favors!

My hubby and I cobbled together two Paleo-friendly bowls for dinner: slow roasted grass fed lamb with cilantro chutney and veggies over romaine leaves ($7.99)…

…and another salad topped with tandoori chicken ($6.99).

The bowls were overflowing with tasty seasoned meat so there’s no need to double the protein here!

Also, as far as I could tell, you can even put together meals here that are entirely Whole30-compliant — the marinades for the meat don’t even contain yogurt! I enjoyed my meal so much that I purchased another one to bring to work.

Is it possible that Palo Alto is no longer a culinary wasteland?
