What is the one single food item that dominates the satisfaction of your caloric intake on a daily basis?

... and why that item?

caloric food liquids like milk count too

It's not that I eat a ton of eggs every day, but it's the most consistent item in my diet. Maybe avg of 2-3/day? Some days none, some days 4. Fried sunny-side-up, or hard-boiled on salad greens or in egg salad, or drizzled with olive oil and balsamic with sliced tomatoes. They're just so EASY. And we get local pastured eggs from happy chickens.

Thanks for the feedback guys! They certainly aren't the bulk of my diet. I tend to have a big handful every day at work as a snack, I just figured it adds up, given that I have them almost every day. I'll cut down on the nuts, and make sure to have other snacks at work.

Shelly - Yep! I don't purposefully make stock alone. Cook roasts bone-in in the slow cooker. The reserved liquid is gelatin rich and some of the bones are soft enough to chew at that time. The harder bones are thrown in the next time. They become softer and support more gelatin... everything is used.

Gllie, just a heads up, I love me chicken too. But after months of eating chicken daily (with other proteins too mind) and having regular zits, I dropped all chicken from my diet. It was essentially THE source of n6 in my eating. Sure enough, zits have all but stopped. Just in case you ever experience something similar. Otherwise eat eat eat!

Super easy elizabeth - hard boil the eggs, split in half, scoop out the yolks and add some homemade paleo mayo (ala mark sisson's primal blueprint cookbook), a teeny bit of mustard powder (to taste), a chunk of hot smoked salmon (as little or as much as you would like - make sure to taste as you go) smush it all together, and put it back into the eggs. I garnish with a dusting of paprika, or a caper or pimento or nothing if i'm not feeling fancy. They are a great thing to take to a potluck or to have in the fridge to snack on (just cover them up because they smell pretty strong)

You should consider cutting out nuts entirely. There's really no reason to eat them, except maybe as some crunchy salad garnish, due to their high omega6 content. Welcome to Paleohacks...

Calorically, Grassfed Beef Fat.

Whether thats Tallow, Butter, Intramuscular Fat on Steaks. or Ground Beef 75/25, Hard Cheese.

Volume, Grassfed Beef. Its regular to cook up a pound of Beef for lunch, and another for Dinner. In addition to grilling Vegetables or Tubers in Tallow/Butter.

Edit: Guilty of leaving out the Why: Grassfed Beef Fat is Balanced in PUFAs while remaining low PUFA. Also great for CLA, Vitamin E,A,K2 etc. Between the Meat and Fat, I get virtually everything I need to THRIVE from my Happy Cow and his Happy Fat.

Since everyone else chose eggs, I guess I'll pick something different. ;)

I'd have to say coconut, in its many forms. I cook my foods in coconut oil, bind things like meatloaves with coconut flour (one tablespoon goes a long way!), and eat coconut butter by the spoonful for dessert. If there were any coconut milk in the house, I'd readily consume that, too.

Why? Availability, food sensitives (afraid to try butter due to acne during my last attempt, hard to find ghee and not ready to commit to a bulk online order when I know coconut oil works well for me), and palate. I love the taste of coconut, and I love the versatility of it as well. Plus, where I live, it's readily accessed at the Co-op or natural food store. :)

I try to eat a varied diet - and eggs are really the only single food source that is there every day. We eat a different protein source at every major meal (from beef to lamb to moose to every fish we can get our hands on) Wow a dozen eggs hey? My partner has done this when I make some smoked salmon devilled eggs.

Super easy elizabeth - hard boil the eggs, split in half, scoop out the yolks and add some homemade paleo mayo (ala mark sisson's primal blueprint cookbook), a teeny bit of mustard powder (to taste), a chunk of hot smoked salmon (as little or as much as you would like - make sure to taste as you go) smush it all together, and put it back into the eggs. I garnish with a dusting of paprika, or a caper or pimento or nothing if i'm not feeling fancy. They are a great thing to take to a potluck or to have in the fridge to snack on (just cover them up because they smell pretty stong)

Yummy!! I always like "ready to hork down" snacks, but especially of the devilled egg variety.

140-210 calories is the bulk of your diet?

2-3 is the majority of your diet? 3 eggs is a snack at best. On a mostly Egg day, ill down the dozen. and thats only ~880 calories. If they were the majority of my daily calories id have to eat 3 dozen at least. Fried in Kerrygold of course.

Eggs.

I don't even eat them everyday (close!) but reviewing my food log for a week, they are the top of the list.

Why? They are cheap and easy and you can make them so many different ways it's almost a different meal every time! Hard boiled, omelette muffins, quiche, over easy, frittata...

Grassfed beef! Occasionally heavy cream/butter or macadamias when I have a lot, but I eat beef and I use tallow to fry my potatoes (which I'm including in the beef number)

It might be almonds, and if not, it's close. They aren't my main calorie source on any one day, but in aggregate they might come out on top.

Nuts are great sources of minerals. They also taste damned good. I try to stick to nuts in the shell for freshness, but there's nothing wrong with a few nuts.

You should consider cutting out nuts entirely. There's really no reason to eat them, except maybe as some crunchy salad garnish, due to their high omega6 content. Welcome to Paleohacks...

ill limit my comments to Omega6 content, and be concerned about having such a large % of your diet comprised of them. Think about how hard it would be to obtain those quantities in nature.

What do people think about eating a small/moderate amount of nuts with better omega 3 content?

Thanks for the feedback guys! They certainly aren't the bulk of my diet. I tend to have a big handful every day at work as a snack, I just figured it adds up, given that I have them almost every day. I'll cut down on the nuts, and make sure to have other snacks at work.

Eggs - up to 4 a day, followed by heavy cream (in coffee and tea), then butter (to cook almost everything), then probably a tie between bacon and beef.

Gllie, just a heads up, I love me chicken too. But after months of eating chicken daily (with other proteins too mind) and having regular zits, I dropped all chicken from my diet. It was essentially THE source of n6 in my eating. Sure enough, zits have all but stopped. Just in case you ever experience something similar. Otherwise eat eat eat!
