Can I eat the same paleo dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday?

For example a chicken salad -- is it nutritionally appropriate?

Well you'd better not be using commercial soybean oil-based mayo in it, that's for sure.

Can you? yes.

Should you? Probably not. As Mark Sisson notes, "There are clear benefits to eating a wider variety of foods:

-Access to a wider variety of micronutrients and phytochemicals. Think of all the various antioxidants associated with the greens, reds, yellows, purples, and oranges in fruits and vegetables. Think of how vitamin and mineral content differs between foods.

-Dilution of food toxins. Food toxins usually operate in a dose-dependent manner, so keeping a variety would help keep the doses low and spread thin.

-Food enjoyment. Eating the same three things is a sure path to food boredom. Eating should come with a serving of sensory enjoyment."

Yeah, what Todd B said.

That all being said, if your options are eat the same paleo meals every day or eat a huge Subway sandwich, I gotta go with eating the same paleo meal every day.

Why would you eat the same thing? If it is lack of ideas, try this: www.chowstalker.com http://paleomg.com/ http://www.janssushibar.com/?p=13370

Only possible answer: "I don't know -- can you?"

... there is no reason a generally well-rounded meal can't be eaten over and over. You'll get bored of it rather quickly. I do tend to have a portion of my daily meals be the same thing - for e.g., if I make chili on Sunday, I'm probably eating chili with lunch everyday (next to other items).
