What is the perfect paleo meal?

For breakfast I typically eat 4 eggs + 5 slices of bacon, and sop up all that good bacon grease with the eggs. Afterards, I literally feel like a million bucks!

However, I don't get that same "f yeah!" sensation after other meals throughout the day (e.g. grass fed steak, veggies, yogurt + coconut oil).

What gives? Is there just something magical about bacon/eggs? Am I missing out on some other staple foods? Or does anybody even know the sensation I'm describing?

interesting-- i get the 'f yeah!' sensation from grassfed beef, but bacon makes me feel pretty terrible for the next day or so. i guess it differs from body to body, but i definitely know the feeling!

I started eating Paleo (stumbled across it looking for low carb stuff) about 2 months ago. I've been having similar 'ef yeah!' sensations after eating a really great meal too. I know exactly what that feeling is you're talking about! It's not a high, but almost like being completed fulfilled, or blissful? I can't find the right adjective...'f yeah' might just have to be the phrase to describe it!

Bone-in beef roast with potatoes and carrots. Slow-cooked for fall-off-the-bone tenderness and juicy broth and bonus if bone has marrow. Finger lickin' good.

Breakfast is my favorite meal too. But I think variety is key to getting a healthy balanced Paleo diet. Maybe you should experiment a little more with ethnic cuisine? I love Korean food, Mexican food and Indian food. So I make Paleo versions of those dishes. For example, my fiance is Korean so we do Korean bbq at home. I just adjust the recipes and sub in Paleo ingredients. Instead of soy sauce, I'll use coconut aminos. For Mexican food I can pretty much use the same ingredients as the recipes call for, which is nice. Just no beans and rice for me. I top everything with salsa and guac. And my sides are usually chili and lime spiced yams. Indian food is another great choice because you can do coconut based curries. Again I use potatoes and sweet potatoes, lots of onion and garlic and tons of curry powder. It's up to you if you want to include other nightshades like eggplant and tomato. Thai food is another good option. I find all these cuisines give me that amazing sensation you describe and I am never resigned to "steak and greens". I can cook that if I want, but there are so many other options! :)

Maybe you're over eating, fat can be very satisfying and gives me energy for hours.

My "paleo! f*** yeah!" meal: Quarter pound burger with some mustard along side a huge pile of roast sweet potatoes, parsnips and carrots. I will literally say "f*** yeah" as I'm eating it, so good!

Can't say that breakfast (since I don't eat breakfast) or eggs give me that same feeling.
