Due to health reasons, Karen has been forced onto a macrobiotic diet. Can the kitchen staff at CSA accommodate this?

I'm sure she will find plenty to eat but as with any restrictive diet, it is up to the eater to know what they are eating and avoid things they should not eat. I eat the exactly opposite way, totally avoiding grains, dairy, tubers, legumes, and I eat only meats, nuts, berries, veggies and fruits. I can eat at any restaurant that I have ever been to if I think before I eat. By the way, I LOVE my way of eating and have never felt better…

If it is traditional macrobiotic, then it is primarily brown rice (unbleached, unhusked), vegetables, tamari and small amounts of meat or fish, and maybe some miso soup. Is her diet that strict? If so, I would bring 5 lbs of brown rice and ask the kitchen to cook it, and focus on the pan-fried fish, raw veggies, and maybe the occasional fruit.
I recall a few years ago when the kitchen at CN happily made special vegetarian dishes for an Indian couple who was staying for their honeymoon. But "vegetarian" leaves a lot more room for movement than macrobiotic.

Yup, we are cavers. I actually was not Paleo last time we went but I would not find it hard to eat Paleo at Couples. I think once you go this way got a while, you know how to avoid the pitfalls. As long as you don't go nuts and eat a large amount of grainy something, you will be O.K. Meats even cooked with some amount of flour will not likely make you sick unless you like go whole hog and eating a pizza or huge piece of cake... When out to eat, I usually order a meat like steak and instead of the potato, I go with steamed veggies and then fruit for after.
