What did you eat today? A nutrition-diary for paleohacks

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created April 17, 2012 at 9:45 AM

After 6 months in paleo I realized that I definitely need new impulses and ideas for paleo-recipes - I already own 3 paleo-recipe books, but I would like to know your daily dishes. So I thought we could start an idea-forum here. We don't need to inculde the recipes here, but maybe it is a good inspiration for the undecided :)

Ok, my turn: Today's Dishes Breakfast: 4 scrambled eggs with grass-fed beef and galia melon. Dinner: 4 hard boiled eggs, 1 avocado Lunch: Salad with self-made oil-lemon-dressing and fresh salmon (we have a great fish-market close to my house)

It is formulated by some crazy intense vegan-heads at Health Force Nutritionals, but I still like it, in spite of hokey things like "100% Truganic" and "100% Hard Core" on the label. It is a nice collection dessicated root powders like astragalus, burdock, nettle, marshmallow, yacon, dandelion, carrot, ginger, and rhubarb. I'm not a huge fan of the gritty texture from the sprouted flax and chia that is in there too, but the taste is pretty good overall and it claims to be a good source of probiotics and natural soil organisms.

Depends on what I'm up to - lifting/CrossFit, easy walking the dog, being lazy, what the weather is like. All my nutrition is solid but will fluctuate depending on my output and surroundings.

Yesterday I cruised through:

A banana, two eggs, roasted Japanese sweet potato, braised kale, an heirloom orange, a few big bites of dark chocolate, an iced coffee, hot mint tea, a wedge of meatza, iced mint tea - I really like tea!, seared steak/tomatoes/avocado/kale with jalapeno and lime, sheeps milk yogurt with blackberries and raspberries. Water was probably about 2L total.

It was an easy eating day as its hot here where I am, the hunger was stifled a bit :)

Breakfast - Coffee

Morning Tea - Coffee

Afternoon Tea - Coffee

Dinner - Pork Curry, Steamed vegies

Snack - Lindt 85%

Supper - Decaf, Yoghurt & GF Muesli

My food intake for today is very low. I am sick with the man flu and haven't exercised a week or so. Trying to keep my calories fairly low.

Dinner: Veal cooked in tomatoes, chipotle, splash of red wine, garlic, and lime (my BF calls it "better chili") with some rice and broccoli.

Some dark chocolate, already.

Tea interspersed throughout the day.

Breakfast - Freshly ground and newly roasted organic Coffee, fermented cod liver oil, high vitamin butter oil, a tablespoon coconut oil. All organic.

Lunch - lightly fried (in ghee): 4 eggs, tomato, onion from the garden, garlic, broccoli, herb salt, black pepper, dried oregano topped with gruyere and arugula. on the side: kimchi and fermented red cabbage. kiwi afterwards. everything organic.

Afternoon snack - a few pieces of 70 % valrhona chocolate, apple and banana and raw carrot with herb salt on. All organic.

Dinner - Lamb stew: lamb on the bone prefried in coconut fat and then boiled with potatoes, carrot, cauliflower, onion, garlic, chili peppers, heaps of different spices, a couple of cranberries and goji berries. Mostly organic.

A short while after dinner - raw home made goat kefir with cinnamon, honey and D/K2 drops, a banana. All organic (except the drops i guess =))

Notes: everything in an 8-10 hour window. Would probably up the carbs for lunch if it was a training day (usually work out on an empty stomach before lunch).

Yesterday:

Breakfast:

3 hard boiled eggs, cup blackberries

After workout:

Banana and some protein, I forgot

Mid-morning snack:

Sugar Free Red Bull (last ever!) and Enjoy Life's Gluten, Dairy, Nut and Gluten free Dark Chocolate Bar

Lunch:

Pecan Crusted Chicken leftovers

4 chicken breasts 1/2 cup organic spicy brown mustard 2 tbsp raw organic honey 1 cup pecans

Pre heat oven to 350. In a medium sized mixing bowl blend together the mustard and honey. Toss the pecans in a food processor and pulse until the nuts are finely chopped. Pour the chopped pecans either on a plate or in a pie pan if you have one. Using a paper towel, remove any excess moisture from the outside of your chicken breasts. Place the chicken into the mustard/honey mixture and coat on both sides. Transfer chicken to the chopped pecans and again cover both sides. Place coated chicken into a greased glass baking dish (I used a little olive oil spray to cover the bottom of the dish) and sprinkle each chicken breast with just a little sea salt. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until the chicken juices run clear.

Dinner:

Chicken Satay

1/2 tsp ground cumin 1/4 tsp salt 3 tbs olive oil, divided 3 tbs lemon juice, divided 4 large boneless, skinless chicken-breasts (about 1 1/2 bs) (or beef) 1 medium-size onion 1/2 cup water 1/4 tsp garlic powder 1/3 cup almond butter

Combine cumin, salt, 2 tbs oil, 2 tbs lemon juice, add chicken and marinate 10 minutes. Broil chicken until tender, flipping when halfway done.

For the sauce: Heat 1 tbs oil over medium heat and saute the onion until golden, stir in water, garlic powder, and 1 tbs lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Remove pan from heat and beat in almond butter until melted. Serve warm. 4 servings.

Late Night Snack-

Baby Zucchini fried in coconut oil and topped with Garlic Salt, Dried Peaches from Trader Joe's

Breakfast:

Chicken Satay leftovers

After Workout:

Medium Banana and 2 Uncured Grass Fed Beef Snack Sticks

Mid Morning Snack -

Naked Peach Coconut Water and Enjoy Life's Gluten, Nut, Soy and Dairy Free Dark Chocolate Bar

Try paleo-fying your old favorite foods. Make swedish meatballs with onion instead of breadcrumbs in the meat and a greek yogurt mushroom sauce. Meatloaf and stuffed peppers can be made the same way. A favorite of mine is zucchini pasta, shred your squashies with a veggies peeler down to the seeds, salt them and then put them in a colander with a paper towel and heave object on top. This will press the water out of them so they are like al dente pasta. Rinse after an hour + and lay out on a towel to dry for a few minutes. You dont need to cook these just pour your sauce on top and meat on top...mmmm chicken broccolit mac and cheese.

If you want you can check out my primal journal, I am always posting some interesting food experiments in there, it takes a while to read so skip around to the recipies. I am going to make some protein muffins this week too that are good for grab and go breakfast.

I didn't have time to go to the store today, and the only food in the house was bacon, eggs, and salad. So breakfast and lunch was both some variant of bacon, eggs, and salad.

Breakfast - cup of coffee, two eggs fried over easy in kerry gold, 4 strips of bacon, a large spring mix salad with cucumbers, using the leftover bacon fat and apple cider vinegar as a dressing.

Lunch - MASSIVE salad (a large bowl with about 4oz of spring mix), cucumber, 3 strips of bacon, shredded carrot, the same dressing as above, but also 3 hard-boiled eggs.

Dinner - Pork Chops in a Honey/Mead/Rosemary sauce, homemade apple sauce pureed with butter. My wife and son are having roasted corn with theirs.
