Hack my Meal Plan

Commented on August 26, 2013
Created April 20, 2013 at 9:37 AM

I am not sure what the consensus is on green smoothies for Paleo but, I find it one of the easiest ways to get my greens and they are quick. An example plan for me might be:

1st: Green smoothie with 2 bananas and a few handfuls of greens. Equalling approximately a quart of smoothie.

2nd: See above. Possible addition of a cup of pineapple or berries.

3rd: All protein. Frequently consisting of 4 eggs with some coconut oil or Kerrygold butter, Himalayan salt, and pepper. Chicken coated in coconut flour. Or, egg "muffins" (eggs mixed with veggies and sometimes hamburger and cooked in a muffin tin.)

Snacks: Homemade chicken or beef jerky, boiled egg(s), some cooked chicken breast, or some beef meatballs.

Smoothies sometimes also contain coconut milk, cocoa powder, hemp protein powder, or random fruit additions.

I am a 5' 11" female, I am not yet extremely active, I do spend at least over an hour walking at work. My goals are fat loss and overall health.

Thoughts and CONSTRUCTIVE criticisms please. :)

Isnt vitamin k1 water soluble, hence why it's present in most plant foods, and vitamin k2 is fat soluble, which is why it's found in mostly animal products?

Why are you skipping the egg yolks, as it is the healthiest part of the egg?

"Smoothies sometimes also contain coconut milk, cocoa powder, hemp protein powder, or random fruit additions." that's far from implying her smoothies all have fat..

She already indicates they have coconut milk in them, no need for extra fat.

I usually use the bananas to make it palatable. I should mention I also make a quart or more at a time.

Do you think a tablespoon or two of coconut oil would do this?

What are your goals? Fat Loss, muscle gain...etc

Smoothies can be good, however yours are VERY heavy on the fructose.

The reason smoothies are good is because you can get lots of greens in, that should be the focus and the fruit should only be there to make it palatable.

The Fat and Protein content of the rest of your food looks great. I would definitely add in some more non-starchy veggies though. Broccoli, Cauliflower, mushrooms, onions.. Sauté them in butter and your golden.

Agree with Sustainsf above. I have had to cut out all fruit for now (female with weight to lose).

My own view is real food is better than smoothies. Eat the plate of kale not the smoothie with kale in if you can.

Eating 3 times a day sounds good. I tend to eat breakfast 3 egg whites, 3 slices of bacon around 7.30am. Lunch today at 1.45pm was a large piece of steak with spinach with butter on it. Dinner around 8 - we were a bit late tonight- was loads of roast chicken particularly the fat on the skin with some cucumber.

My recommendation would be to watch the amount of fruit if weightloss is your goal. Also, avoid snacking. If you can't go 4-5 hours between meals without ingesting food, then you aren't eating enough at the meals. Also, everytime you snack, your body is going to get out of burning bodyfat because it will use the immediate energy source of food. I would do at most one of those smoothies per day. If it is in liquid form, it will not give you the satiation that solid food gives, even if it is isocaloric.

Add fat to your smoothies and increase your vitamin k digestion 5-10 fold..
