Day 6: GF, DF, EF Lunch Dates are Hard!

Day 6: GF, DF, EF.

Had a lunch meeting today and luckily they asked where I wanted to eat. But then I panicked. What could I eat out?!?!

Luckily my friend recently took me to Tractor Foods and their tag line literally says: Everyday Healthy Foods, so they probably have lots of options that would be ok for me right?

Wrong. Almost everything that looked or sounded good had dairy in it… so sad. I was basically down to 2.5 options for their side salads. The 0.5 is because the apple salad is DF if I don’t add on the amazing sounding herb & blue cheese vinaigrette, sad.

  • Organic quinoa, kale, blueberries, butternut squash, mint, basil, white balsamic vinaigrette
  • Roasted and fresh apples, arugula, endive, toasted pumpkin seeds, pecans, herb & blue cheese vinaigrette
  • Roasted brussels sprouts, shredded kale, radicchio, Italian parsley, apricot mustard vinaigrette

I chose the apple and quinoa salad and topped it with two 2 oz pieces of albacore tuna steak because I wanted to indulge at least a little. Can’t say I was very excited about the apple salad, it was kind of meh. Probably because it lacked the dressing. The quinoa salad was only ok as well. The highlight was definitely the two pieces of tuna.

My lunch plate came to $12.50.
