If you could have a non-paleo meal without any consequences what would it be?

I still do peanut butter... Not Jif, mind you, just organic peanuts and salt, and refuse to give this up. I don't care how paleo it is or isn't, but it's not going anywhere. Doesn't appear to have any effects on me, maybe this is something worth experimenting with for yourself?

Indeed agreed on the pizza, especially coupled with a red beer. The Costco cake? You couldn't PAY me to eat one those. I never cared for how fluffy the bread and the icing was and it just always gave me a headache, no matter how little I ate. When it comes to cake I like small, dense, moist with a thin layer of thick icing. Enough with the fluffy.

Pasta with loads of garlic bread on the side. Then double cream condensed milk icecream and waffles, pancakes, panettone and espresso and those sugary cola bottle sweets. Then another coffee and Spanish crispy palmeritas and a French pan au chocolat.

Then finally a shared tarte tatin, candle light Argentine Tango and roll in the bed with a beautiful woman.

I find this a difficult question. I can't pick just one because they are not always as satisfying as I have in mind. No idea how that comes but last week the pancakes were delicious and yesterday they were so dry and definitely not tasty. The same happens with the fries and eclairs.

Anyhow, my preferable cheat meal would be:

Pancakes from Bruges vs. BELGIAN fries vs. ??clairs

Definitely pizza. Very thin, very crispy on the bottom, from a wood-fired oven. A slice so big you have to fold it up to eat it, and the cheese is browned on top, with sausage, pepperoni, and mushrooms lurking under there. With copious quantities of beer. This has been my fantasy meal since Day 1. Oddly, I even did have a treat day with a little pizza, but it wasn't THAT pizza, and it sucked. It has to be THAT pizza, or NO pizza, from now on.

Garlic bread, followed by a disgustingly American sized portion of fettucine alfredo, followed by dessert. Then maybe 3 scoops of cookie dough ice cream, extra chocolate sauce.

Also included in this meal somewhere would be several bowls of cereal, a doughnut and a cinnabon.

I'm lucky, I guess, because I can eat yellow-crispy-shelled tacos with a few bites of rice and beans and there are no consequences. I don't push it, but it's fine as an occasional treat.

My non-paleo dessert that I know doesn't cause problems is ice cream. In the future I'll probably make paleo-friendly ice cream at home but right now it's still very limited as I'm trying to lose weight slowly.

And I can have steak every day now. :)

I would eat a large Italian BMT with lots of ranch and mayonaise. I don't eat pig, sausage, or pepperoni anymore so that is another thing I don't eat and I know many would hate me for that LOL.

Or a cheesy burrito with all kinds of meat in it, not a part I avoid now, and enchilada sauce and other sauces, that I avoid now, with of course ranch

Or a Pizza. I don't care for bread other than there is no good alternative lol.

There are many more but this is all I can think of because I am busy.

Dessert would be either a cinnamon bun or chocolate ice cream with fudge and peanut butter. This is of course if I I didn't have to worry about fat consequences else I would never eat this lol.

I've been thinking about this all day since I saw your question. I finally have an answer :-)

The breakfast I often ate as a child:

  • A huuuuuuuge chunk of spicy cheese from the nearby-island of Sao Jorge (it's naturally spicy, nothing added)
  • A little chunk of properly-made bread. My mother made it herself (American bread smells like farts and hurts my teeth).
  • Coffee with cream.

Unfortunately I cannot digest neither cheese nor grains right now.

Pizza was always "meh" to me, a food of last resort, when you just can't decide what to get for dinner.

The meal that I often break ranks for is a really good, authentic taco... there is a place near me that griddles chorizo, cheese, onions, and lime juice then serves it on a large tortilla... with slices of limes and radishes. If I am going to break my normal eating habits, this is most likely where I will go as it causes me the least discomfort afterwards.

The other meal? My wife's homemade bread, grilled with butter, served with the best English-style breakfast this Yank can put together. I can only tolerate it now when hungover, since I already feel like crap - the meal's impact psychologically is lessened.

I do slightly miss ice cream, the only "sweet" I've ever enjoyed.
