Lets say you could eat any food you want... (Money is not a concern. Time is not a concern.) What would you want your typical daily menu to look like?

Would love wild Alaskan salmon, but I'm from Australia and haven't come across that before. I'm more than keen to find a great wild salmon available in Aus if anyone had any suggestions or sources??

If money isn't an issue then I'm going big and won't cook or design my perfect menu, I will let Thomas Keller, Grant Achatz, and Rene Redzepi do it for me - of course they get to do all the work + dishes, in addition to the planning :) I dream of The French Laundry and Noma...was lucky enough to have the full menu at Alinia two years ago. I literally burst into tears over my 2nd course it was so beautiful and amazing. Yes, food dork am I.

In the real world and not my fantasy, I love food and do a damn fine job in my kitchen, a surprise day of secret tastiness and delights is what I want. And maybe I'll help with dishes :)

Breakfast grassfed steak and eggs with hollandaise sauce, with either coffee or mint green tea (of course if they were paleo, I would add southern home made biscuits with butter and jam)

Lunch Sausage Bacon Shrimp Summer Squash Casserole http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=1588104#ratings with some spring melon on the side if I wasn't worried about carbs

Snacks a pat of Lurpak butter, salmon avocado and cream cheese wrapped in nori, more dark chocolate

Dinner lobster tails with melted ghee, sauteed scallops, veggies sauteed in butter with greek seasoning and two hunks of Cocolove 77% dark chocolate for dessert. -OR- a pig pickin (google it) with fennel slaw, deviled eggs, watermelon and the aforementioned chocolate.

Breakfast: grass-fed steak and eggs, maybe with some sausage and decaf iced coffee

Lunch: grass-fed meatza topped with burrata, mushrooms, red onions, kalamata olives

Dinner: Grass-fed prime rib, sauteed fresh organic spinach with garlic and grass-fed butter

This is a pretty typical day for me anyway (minus the prime rib which I am quite sure I can't afford!)

It would pretty much be the same as now, except I might have a real bison steak instead of the ground stuff all the time. And, I might have a bit of fresh salmon when its in season, for breakfast instead of some extra protein powder. I would eat more macadamia nuts, of course! And, maybe a whole bottle of resveratrol. Here's my typical day: Breakfast: eggs, bacon, greens, protein powder, coffee with cream. Lunch: meat, veggies, nuts, coconut, green tea. Dinner: meat, veggies, olives, decaf coffee with cream.
