The Food Renegade Guide To Dining Out by Kristen Michaelis
Dining Out With Kids by Jenny McGruther of Nourished Kitchen
The Real Food Restaurant Guide by Holly Hickman
Choices, choices …
If you have a choice between a batter-dipped “pasture-raised” chicken breast fried in canola oil or a “naturally-raised” rotisserie baked chicken basted in olive oil and spices, which should you choose?
If you have a choice between french fries made with non-organic potatoes but fried in duck fat and organic french fries cooked in canola oil, which should you choose?
The Food Renegade Guide to Dining Out is packed full of beautifully-illustrated real life choices just like these. I have Kristen Michaelis’ answers listed below at the bottom in case you want to decide for yourself first before you see her perspective.
Meanwhile, here is one recommendation I learned in The Food Renegade Guide to Dining Out, which I also have heard Sally Fallon Morell in her presentations:
Always order options that enable you to “see” the food.
When you order made-to-order foods, ask for the options that actually keep the whole, real food visible. For example, when ordering eggs, avoid scrambles and omelets. Instead order poached eggs or fried eggs. You want to see yolks and whites and know that you’re actually getting an egg. That’s because scrambles and omelets often come from (or include) boxed mixes with a myriad of ingredients.
Likewise, when ordering tacos, opt for the fajita tacos or the chicken and avoid ground meats. You want to “see” the meat and know that there’s no hidden textured vegetable protein or other non-foods in the ground-up mush. In the same way, you’ll want to choose grated or crumbled cheese rather than cheese sauces … unless you know the cheese sauce ingredients!
I see this as a very, very worthwhile value! Order before the offer expires! I have.

What would you choose?
1. If you have a choice between french fries made with non-organic potatoes but fried in duck fat and organic french fries cooked in canola oil, which should you choose?
Using the chart in The Food Renegade Guide to Dining Out, you’d decide that the “Most Important” priority is the cooking fat, which means you’d opt for the duck fat fries even though they were made with non-organic potatoes.
2. If you’re given a choice between Wild Alaskan Salmon and an Organic Chicken Breast from a local rancher, which should you choose?
Using the chart, you’d decide that the “Most Important” priority is that the animal food is Pasture Raised and/or Wild, so you’d opt for the Wild Alaskan Salmon even though the [organic] chicken was from a local farm.
