Oh the joys of eating out for business while on a contest diet!
The banter between myself and the waitress is way more high maintenance than necessary and I have an audience.
DL – (pretending to read the menu) I will take a house salad, dressing on the side, and plain grilled chicken breast. Oh by the way, what veggies come on the house salad?
Waitress – A beautiful heirloom tomato, julienned carrots, and other in season vegetables. So nothing on the chicken?
DL – (calculating macros in my head) Just grilled and on the side. Perfect!
Waitress – Are you allergic to something? We have a lovely marinade that tastes absolutely divine on the chicken.
DL – No, I am not allergic, just plain grilled chicken. Salt, pepper, and maybe garlic?
Waitress – I could ask the chef what other seasonings are available.
DL – No, don’t worry about it. Just no oil or butter please. Plain chicken….make it as boring as you can please.
Waitress – So just plain. On the grill. Nothing on it. Ok then.
DL – Yup. Exactly. I like my food naked.
Perhaps I should just lead with that.
So, I like my food naked…
I am sure no one will get the wrong impression.
