How You Can Help Restaurants Become Bulletproof
By: Dave Asprey
How many times have you come home after a long day of work, thrown your jacket on the couch, and relaxed for a few minutes, and decided you didn’t want to make dinner? But it is dinner time, and you’re hungry! The last thing you had to eat was a cup of Bulletproof Coffee…14 hours ago.
You’re ready to eat, and while it is easy to prepare a grass-fed steak and some vegetables, you don’t want to clean up. Besides, your significant other just came home and wants to go out to eat.
Situations like this are a major challenge for anyone following the Bulletproof Diet. When you stick to it, you feel like nothing can stop you. You’re more focused, productive, and happier than ever. Then it’s time for a birthday party, and you eat cake and pizza, because that’s what they’re serving, knowing it will probably cost you two days of maximum productivity. For others they are still making emotional decisions about food and eat non-optimal foods to fit in more with their non-Bulletproof friends and family.
What if you didn’t have to decide between fitting in or convenience when you eat out and your health?
Wouldn’t it be nice to come home after a long day at work and go to a restaurant that served Bulletproof meals? You wouldn’t have to request that the chef saute the food in butter instead of canola oil, or change out the butter beans for brussel sprouts. You could just order straight off the menu, and know it would be great!
Some restaurants have started offering gluten free items, but most of them are heavily processed or contain other anti-nutrients like lectins and phytates. They might make it to the orange side of the Bulletproof Diet instead of the red zone – which isn’t a big improvement. However, our friends from PaleoPlan.com have put together WeWantPaleo.com, a website where you can ask restaurants to serve paleo food. Paleo isn’t always Bulletproof, but it’s a lot closer than anything else.
If you want to easy access to paleo and Bulletproof foods at restaurants, sign up now over at WeWantPaleo.com. It’s a great way to let restaurants know that you care about your health and performance, and that you don’t want the cheapest, lowest quality food available – you want to be Bulletproof.
To sign the petition, drop your email address into the small box at the bottom of the WeWantPaleo.com homepage.
How else do you think restaurants could be more Bulletproof? Do you have a favorite restaurant that already has some great Bulletproof meals?
