The minimalist diet

So, for a while now, I've had this strange desire to minimalize my diet, and rid of anything that's superfluous. Also, to be honest, I don't always enjoy eating complicated meals. On a little experiment, for the past 7 days I've only been preparing 2 different meals while at my place. This comes out to be like 14 meals a week.

  • These are just what I've been preparing myself. I end up going out and eating other things like 5-7x per week, usually paleo things like ahi tuna salad or filet mignon. I also eat escargot about 3x per month and foie gras about 1x every 30 days.

The meals

  1. seafood (a very wide variety of fish and shellfish), with something green (broccoli, kale, seaweed, asparagus, leeks, artichoke hearts, etc) and some jasmine rice (depending how I'm cooking the fish, I may use some coconut oil).

  2. chicken (breast meat. so shoot me. sometimes thighs) with almonds or walnuts and a Japanese sweet potato.

    • I use ginger, garlic, onions, and lemons daily. I also typically follow up meal 1 with a couple baby carrots cause they cleanse my palate. I also drink tea, to which I'll add some honey.

Is this fine in the long run? Any holes? I could be eating more low calorie vegetables like a lot people do to get their carbs, but personally I find that to be a very non-paleo thing to do (we're not apes, and makes more economic sense to eat more calorie dense foods).

And yeah, I know the jasmine rice isn't paleo, but I think it's pretty benign. It's basically just low-toxin glucose in my opinion.
