This is typical! Sometimes I feel bad being that customer that has to make some modifications, but then I'm really not. I remember that I care more about my health!
I have been spending my Saturdays in a nearby coffee shop to get some studying done, the problem is that I can't bring my food along. I have been ordering one of their salads (since everything else is sandwiches and bakery items). But of course cheese, croutons, and pita bread comes with it and no protein. I tell them to leave those off and to add 2 orders of chicken (since from experience I learned one is not nearly enough, 2 probably isn't either).
As you can see in the pic, they once again left the croutons and pita bread. This must not be a normal request for them! lol It takes self control to stay strong when this happens. But I wanted to post this to show you that you can still do it, even if they bring out something that you asked them not to. :)
It'd be nice to have a Paleo coffee shop around here! Hmmm, now that's a good idea...
