I know first-hand how tricky it can be to find good food while traveling away from home, but it’s certainly not impossible with just a little bit of forethought and planning. Check out my post with some of my top healthy travel tips here!
Paleo FX 2016 is over and it was an amazing weekend! This week's Balanced Bites Podcast episode (airing tomorrow!) will include my recap of #pfx16 as well as some great discussion points inspired by my favorite talk of the conference! I'll share a little more on next week's What's Up Weekly post as well.
Here's what we ate on this trip!
- First stop in Austin: a bite at 24 Diner with Scott, then a trip to the mothership (aka the Whole Foods in downtown Austin) as all the Paleo folks do when they arrive at Paleo FX!
Torchy's Tacos truck was, as planned, half a block from our AirBnB. I got two of the Mr. Pink after checking my own hashtag (#PracticalPaleoTravelATX) / photo caption from last year and getting the reminder that it was my fave! Scott got carnitas and barbacoa in the first picture. We got guac and salsa but paired it with our own Jackson's Honest chips because duh! Get the fillings without the corn shells if you want to keep it strict Paleo. SO SO GOOD we got it twice 😉
We love Siete Foods products, but we actually love the family behind the company even more. Such warm people to feed us this amazing meal simply to build community. Their grain-free tortillas were the foundation for this local and well-raised/sourced chef-prepared meal that blew us all away. We had the best meal in the best company with PaleOMG, Fed and Fit, Vanessa Barajas, Lexi's Clean Kitchen, Anyas Eats, Pastured Kitchen, Scott, We Are Primal Two, The Paleo Attorney – was perfect evening!
We finally went to Salty Sow for dinner with our friends Danielle Natoni (Fit and Funky) and Darren Natoni ! These duck fat fries with 110 minute egg were delish (though they could have been crispier!). The food was delicious but the company was the highlight of the meal for us. We have loved getting to meet and make new friends (some we “knew,” but now know better) through events like #pfx16.
AH.MAY.ZING. breakfast and business talk today with Tony Kasandrinos and Scott at Dai Due. I had the quesadilla (not Paleo) and they each had the hash (Paleo). EAT HERE. Big things coming from this crew in the coming months… can't wait to share about it!
- Snack Plates!
The first plate was all from Whole Foods – some kind of spicy pork, roasted turkey, THE BEST CHIPS IN THE WORLD (Jackson's Honest salsa fresca non-GMO cooked in coconut oil corn chips with seasoning / aka: “Healthy Doritos” / aka: “don't say I didn't warn you” chips), and raspberries.
Plate #2 features chicharrones we got at Salt and Time, leftover guac from Torchy's Tacos, more Jackson's Honest tortilla chips, salami and organic raspberries from Whole Foods.

Shrimp Pad Thai
Thai food is something that I know lots of us miss on The 21-Day Sugar Detox. The desire for interesting flavor combinations and exotic tastes can often kick in on over drive, and when you’re not eating sweets and treats, it’s important to feel that you’re truly enjoying your meals. Enter my Shrimp Pad Thai recipe – it uses zucchini noodles that you can make easily with either a julienne peeler or a spiralizer tool.
