Paleo, in case you’ve been hiding under a rock, is the new food craze. Embraced by cross-fitters as well as the gluten-free crowd, it eschews grains, dairy and processed food: the principle is that our bodies are adapted to eat the way our ancestors ate when they were evolving, so that’s what we should eat, too. Think vegetables and organ meat.
When we were down in Portland a couple weeks back, we had some fine eating at the Cultured Caveman food truck, and bemoaned the lack of similar up here in Seattle, so it was a pleasant surprise to see a Paleo food truck heading to Wallingford.
This Thursday, from 11 am – 2 pm behind Wine World, the Outside the Box mobile Paleo Food Truck will be serving up caveman cuisine.
The menu sounds unremarkable until you dive in a bit: Pork Carnitas, with a lettuce wrap in place of the tortilla, tabouleh with cauliflower instead of bulgar wheat.
If you make you way up there, please send in a review!
Last week, there was a wood-fired pizza food truck serving dinner on Thursday. Not sure if they’ll be back.
