Well, I've sucked this week paleolithically. Coke, cake, sandwiches, and candy galore have been the crap passing by my lips! SO tomorrow is grocery day and I'm making my list so I was wondering..... what sort of food/dishes are your paleo favorites? I'm looking for ideas for next week, so suggest away!

Ketogenic friendly foods preferred!

Since I work retail, I see a lot of Grinchyness this time of year. I just didn't want/mean to come off like I don't know what I'm doing. I do, but sometimes it's interesting to mix it up a little, y'know? Anyway, I'm all about chicken, and I do think its high time I switch out a day or two of beef for poultry. Also thinking of eating a sweet potato after dinner every night, if I want to keeep myself out of keto.... haven't decided yet. I do like the diuretic effect of ketosis, however.

I'm boring. The only foods I actually like are chocolate and raspberry sorbet, but those are obviously strictly limited but not omitted. 90% of the time I eat steamed vegetables, certain fruits, chicken, and fish. Up to twice a week as a maximum I eat a starchy meal- most frequently sushi or sweet potatoes, but also sometimes even oatmeal.

All right, so we got off on the wrong foot. My previous post wasn't meant as a complaint or to have the tone of blame or desperation; I ate poorly last week aftereating well for weeks priorly, strictly due to my own poor choices. The point is that I'm going to get back on track this week and I wonder what your favorite paleo dish is so I can get some meal ideas for this week. What paleo food do you find irresistable, foreveryoung? :)

then makes "carbs' broadly the scapegoat, and then yoyo to another extreme (that being high fat "paleo" ketogenic). And btw I did not rescind my down-vote, rather, I suppose astrummortis (possibly among others) upvoted. Sorry but why do you think you'll be able to refrain from bingeing on CRAP this time? What have you learned? As far as I know all you did was increase your desire for higher rewarding foods. Reward yourself in some other way next time you feel like eating garbage again.

Actually, I hadn't assumed anything. If you were new to paleo/keto and have yet to eliminate junk from your diet, I'd say it would be wise to just focus on eliminating the junk first, and then contemplating a high fat ketogenic diet. However, since you're "experienced" and just not able to stick with the ketogenic diet for one reason or another, I'd STILL say go back to the basics and focus on eliminating the junk 90% of the time, and then consider going back to high fat keto. Apparently it seems that many people (maybe not you, but then again, maybe it is) eat like total crap and ....

Actually astrummortis, I was not assuming anything beyond what I read. If you were new to pale/keto, I figured you should try paleo first, before heading to another extreme (for the reasons I mentioned in my comment). If you were "experienced" (which apparently you are) I figured that for some reason you are not willing to be consistent (which isn't necessarily a bad thing, mind you), so should get back to basics and eat a CLEAN and REAL paleo diet 90% of the time for a while (or forever). So you see, either way, the conclusion is that you should eat just elminate junk 90% of the time...

well, forever young, you just worked off a couple assumptions; one being that I'm inexperienced in paleo and keto, which is simply not true. I have experience with both. I was only asking for menu suggestions and wondered what paleo/keo-friendly dishes other hackers enjoy. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

What I wrote IS helpful. You don't also suppose you also suggest that one should learning multivariable calculus before basic arithmetic, and to run a marathon before running a mile, do you?

If you don't want to be helpful why don't you just text message yourself about how awesome you are?

Why don't you just learn to eat real food first, before you jump into a an extreme fad diet that you won't stick to?

Abstract: I just roasted pork belly overtop of several fennel bulbs.

Summary: OMFG

Method: All you have to do is salt the pork belly thoroughly, roast it on the fatty side up for 30 minutes, then turn it over (fat-side down) so that it lays on top of the fennel bulbs and roast it for another 3 hours until the meat starts coming away from the skin and fat.

The fennel becomes sweet and somewhat tangy, and soaks up all of the pork belly fat.

Conclusion: Eating 1lb of pork with tangy roasted fennel will result in OMFG.

The author declares no conflict of interest related to this research.

Here, check this scale out. Try to stay in the green.

Buy some Montreal seasoning. Melt some butter and throw your food in in order of what takes the longest to cook. Cut everything up ahead of time.

Shop the perimeter of the grocery store. For keto, purchase just green vegetables and add in some fats to make up the carb calories (butter, fattier meats, eggs, coconut/olive oil). For non-ketogenic paleo, still shop the perimeter but add in colorful fruits and vegetables and reduce the amount of fat.

Do not go to the candy aisles, or the bakery, or the beverage aisle (unless it is to buy water).

I made the most delicious meal tonight that I recommend! I cut 2 each of of yellow, green and red peppers and cut 2 onions. Then I sauteed those and thin slices of chicken. I cooked it in olive oil (I didn't think the coconut oil would taste too great with it) and added a bit of teriyaki sauce. I ate mine over a little rice but you could do without. Yumm it was soo good.

I am a major salad person so the staples of my kitchen are ingredients to make huge salads for lunch daily loaded with stuff like nuts/seeds/pomegranate/pineapple/cucumber/etc.

Another idea that I love to do because it so easy is to throw whatever leftover veggies you have in a food processor. I usually do broccoli, onion, and carrot, but whatever works. Then take those very well chopped pieces and mix with about an equal amount of ground beef. I fold it all together and make mini meat patties. They do well with anything really and you load up with veggies and healthy fats easily!

Those are a few of my favorites!
