As soon as I landed in LA, my friend drove me to Tender Greens for lunch. It was one of her favorite places and soon became one of mine too. It’s a low-key fast, but high quality, food restaurant that offers some great Paleo-friendly options. There are multiple locations in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County, and the Bay Area!
I ordered their Backyard Marinated Steak (grilled medium rare) on a plate, which came with yukon gold mashed potatoes and a side of a simple salad (I chose the butter lettuce one). All for $11. You can substitute grilled veggies for the mashed potatoes. You can also order the steak on top of one of their big salads.
