I'm been Paleo for around a year. This is what I'm eating these days - a combo of what doesn't bother my gut too much (I have bad IBS and prone to bloat), what is convenient for me, and what I like to eat. But I'm wondering if my omega balance is way off, and am I too low in protein? I was doing eggs for breakfast for months, but stopped when I realized how bloated they were making me. I am 5'1 and 100 lbs and not looking to lose weight.
Breakfast: homemade goat kefir (I'm working my way up to 1 cup) with 1/3 tsp acacia powder mixed in 1 banana, 2/3 cup blueberries, 2 tablespoons almond butter decaf Earl Grey tea
Lunch: salad: 1/3 a large free range chicken breast (skin on), homemade bacon bits, 1/4 avocado, cherry tomatoes, 1 baby cucumber, baby spinach and mixed greens, strawberries, pea shoots, toasted pumpkin seeds, around 1/2 cup of some starchy veg (usually beets roasted in coconut oil, or avocado-oil potato chips), olive oil, balsamic or red wine vinegar 2-3 squares Lindt 85% chocolate licorice tea
Dinner: Usually either 1/2 a grassfed ribeye steak with horseradish and mustard, and 1/2 cup rice rice Or 1/2 pound ground lamb or beef in 5-6 romaine lettuce wraps with 1/2 cup white rice Planning to incorporate fish into the rotation since I enjoy it more in the summer.
Maybe some more berries for dessert.
