Yeah I've been crazily eating them. Bad. But not really.

I could definitely make a meal out of dates! Usually only allow myself only 1 or 2 though...

No I mean rice - specifically white organic basmati rice. I think rice is debatable, but I'm not strictly paleo anyway, I'm a Perfect Health Diet adherent. Note that the large amount of fat in the ghee and egg yolks substantially blunts the glycemic impact of the 1 to 2 cups of rice I use per day. I'm also hypothyroid and find I need about 80 gms starch per day to "feel good".

Rice really? or do you mean riced cauliflower? Not that you aren't entitled to eat what you want but its a major food to cut out of a paleo diet is all :)

Tomkat - why no more than 4 ounces of grass-fed beef at any one meal? Just curious.

Here's what I do start to finish: Let the steak come up to room temp Heat a skillet on the stove with bacon fat Start the broiler Salt and pepper the steak Sear on both sides for 30 seconds Put in broiler, 2-3 minutes per side depending on thickness Take off of heat and let rest for at least 5 minutes (10 is better) I've found that if I skip the first or last step I can sometimes end up with a chewy steak, but I live in a small apartment and don't have access to a grill. If you have a grill, just throw it on 2 minutes a side over medium-high heat and then let rest.

I'm a fan of anything that can be done with some grass-fed ground beef. Because of cost and availability I typically use that for a multitude of dishes. Everything from stuffed peppers, a zucchini and beef "lasagna", or some lettuce wrapped burgers. The ground beef can also be cooked with eggs.

My lately favorites in my lunch for ease are...

  • Wild caught canned salmon mushed with grass fed butter and some cream cheese--even better with some Bubbie's pickles.
  • Hard salami and a glass of raw goat's milk.
  • Zucchini noodles with butter and parmesan.

Rice cooked in bone broth fried lightly with ghee, small amount of minced beef liver, egg yolks, and salmon.

Sounds weird but its really good as long as you keep the beef liver below the taste threshold and let the eggs and salmon dominate.

Breakfast: Use small amount of regular olive oil in frying pan to cook up: 2 Eggs sunny side up or left over steak or chicken from last night's meal with sauted side of 3-4 handfuls of spinach and half of diced sweetonion. Sometimes,I scramble 2 eggs with a little almond milk with several shakes spaghetti cheese.

Lunch: Home made soup from left over meats and fresh veggies and spices to taste. Tuna or Salmon salad rolled up into large cabbage leaf.

Supper: No more than 4 ounces of grassfed beef/steak at any one meal. Fresh fried or roasted veggies in coconut oil. Fresh salad or rainbow coleslaw. Salad dressing is olive oil & Apple cider vineger.. Snacks: seeds:Pumpkin or sunflower. Nuts: Almonds, walnuts, Cashews. Fruit: Apples, pears, kwi, cantaloupe, honydew mellons, watermellon.

1 large glass of water with half of lemon or lime squeezed into it with every meal. Lemon water and veggies help to balance out the PH of meal to be more alkaline.
