Mono eating discussion

This is just a for fun post, I saw another that was similar but not the same :)

I would like ya'll to hack the concept of mono eating/fasting. I pose this question on a super paleo (kind of ridiculous) thought process. Thinking about them probably only cooking only once or twice a day. I was wondering what your thoughts were on this being a good idea or a bad idea. I am also considering doing this because I tend to be a very black and white thinker, kind of all or nothing. I think if I could do one type of food 3 times a day I would screw up less. Of course from day to day I would alter my food greatly, say bell peppers and stew meat one day and asparagus and chicken the next. Thoughts? Is this paleo? Is it ridiculous? Any one tried it?

Do this all the time. Eat twice a day when ever hungry. Less bad choices for me for sure when there's something paleo already cooked. It's very convenient actually. Something is always ready to pack for lunch. Also have a few things in the pantry for an alternate meal, for me it's canned fish, cabbage and eggs.

Why not make a big batch of something and freeze it, then you only have to cook afew times a week. Can do big stew, braises, soups, ragu, anything with mince.

It seems reasonable to think that paleo man would have eaten the same food for multiple meals... why waste the leftovers? Without refrigeration anything that was killed fresh would have to be preserved (dried) or cooked and eaten before spoilage? Go n=1, try it out, and see how you feel...
