What's on YOUR plate?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 17, 2011 at 1:08 PM

I'm pretty much over the government telling me what I "should" eat in order to be "healthy" (i.e. fat, sick and tired) and thought that it would be cool to get a whole bunch of pictures together, make a collage, and declare July 4th 2011 "Food Independence Day".

I'm sure a lot of you paleohackers have some great meals that you have pictures of, and if you'd like to participate, please just post the picture in your response along with the comment "This is MY plate!"

To kick things off, this is MY plate!

Good for you! 90 / 10, even 80 / 20 is the way to go! People can get a bit too carried away and make this too dogmatic. Important part of paleo to me is to make sure we take the time to enjoy life. Sometimes that means doing something you are not supposed to, but enjoy.

No 'splainin necessary. Paleo is a framework, not a religion. I love me some IPA and my life is better for it. We have a local brewmaster whose mega-hopped craft beers add immensely to my personal well-being (in moderation of course). Your awesome paleo meal was made awesom-er with that bottle...in my opinion.

and Ryan, you made me laugh, yeah, he ran with a bad crowd! they had shotguns... they were *going* to throw his extremities and head into the woods for the wild animals to eat. I joked to the farmer that that was why the crows were so damn big around these parts.

haha, once it was done, (the picture below the stock photo), you would have never known what part of the animal it came from... and believe it or not, I do draw lines as to what meat I will eat... for example, I NEVER eat fast food (haven't been in McDonalds for well over a decade)... I find that meat disgusting. The pigs head didn't really bother me at all.

Lol, I suppose I have some 'splainin to do :) Yes, there is a 60-min IPA hiding in the corner (Does the fact that it was a Saturday night and I was out of town visiting my parents count as an excuse? If not, chalk it up to the 90-10 rule!) The burger was made from ground veal and the chips were sweet potato slices baked with EVOO and some sea salt. It was a "deconstruction" as they say :)

While I never got around to making a collage out of all the pictures everyone posted, but I did have an idea that I would like to share.

I found the site ThisisWhyYoureFat.tumblr.com a few weeks ago and thought, "Why not a paleo version?"

So, this afternoon (I'm currently in the middle of a 24hr fast and needed something to keep myself occupied) I put together a functional tumblr that allows people to submit pictures of whatever paleo food happens to be on their plate (original recipe creations, other peoples recipes, restaurants, etc.)

Check it out and let me know what you think!

Awesome thread! I love links to paleo food blogs. I've started clipping recipes that I love or want to try @ --> http://notinmoderation.wordpress.com/paleo-recipe-links/

I have a few links to your site, JansSushiBar.

I'd like to see this thread keep going!

This photo was taken to showcase the turnips and greens, but gives you a general idea - it's roast from the crockpot (a chuck shoulder roast if I'm not mistaken), turnips - parboiled then pan fried in bacon fat with onions and the greens - and roasted radishes. Pretty indicative of what we eat on any given day.
