If cost or time cooking was not an issue, what would a day of your *dream* meal plan look like?

If cost was not an issue at all, a day would look like this:

Breakfast: true pastured eggs, served with yolks slightly running on top of organic kale and tomatoes, coffee. A cup of organic blueberries. Fair-trade coffee.

Loose leaf green tea in-between

Lunch: fresh Alaskan salmon caught that day, on top of giant mixture of organic greens, cucumbers, parsley, garlic, tomatoes and basil. A touch of butter from a humanely raised and 100% grass-fed cow.

Dinner: some sort of wild game steak, like venison that frolicked happily before it died, with lots of organic yellow squash and zucchini.

Maybe some of you already eat like that...but for me, I'm just dreaming, ha ha.

Oh my gosh, that sounds so perfect...especially the just-caught seafood!

Since cost isn't an issue, everything is fair-trade, local, organic, grass-fed, wild, sustainable, biodynamic, artisinal or whatever term(s) apply best...

Start the day with a very strong americano (or two) while lounging beside the pool. As I start to get hungry, pick whatever tropical fruit appeals most, and enjoy it fresh from the tree. Finally get around to a breakfast of 'granola' and creme fresh or some paleo baking. Load up on (high magnesium) mineral water and head out for some surfing :-)

Dehydrate with some fresh fruit/veg juice, then dine on a delicious salad (containing avocado!) and fresh-caught (that morning!) seafood (lobster tail with garlic butter would be my top choice). Washed down with a glass or two of white wine (bubbles?)

Some olives, some nuts, or some artisan cheese as an hors d'oeuvre, then a dinner or wild game rib eye, proscuitto wrapped asparagus, green salad, roasted yams and a bottle of cab while watching the sun set from the deck of my sail boat. A chocolate truffle or two for dessert.

Of course, if it was winter and I was at my ski chalet this would be different. (we did say cost wasn't an issue, right?)

I'm fortunate enough to live mine most days of the week. I eat quality primal.

Fresh ground coffee made in my mocha for breakfast

6 eggs(over easy) and a Okinawan sweet potato with kerrygold, cayenne, and cinnamon for lunch

Ribeye (Pittsburgh black and blue) or any other fine cut of meat for dinner. I'll probably eat 20 oz or so and be good on just this for dinner.

Use whatever veggies are on hand from the garden soaked in fat for variety.

Breakfast: Giant portion of eggs scrambled in grass-fed butter on top of medium-rare steak.

Lunch: Leg of lamb with cabbage and leek saut??ed in butter.

Dinner: Burgers without the bun, with mashed sweet potato (with butter) and garlic mushrooms.

Mmmmm. It's 2 o'clock in the morning and I'm on the internet talking about food.

One of my top priorities is eating the best quality food I can get so I eat this way most of the time.

Here's what a perfect day of eating would look like for me:

Breakfast: organic bacon; omelet cooked in ghee using pastured eggs, red onions, crimini mushrooms, and bell peppers; potatoes cooked in the bacon grease smothered with my homemade aioli sauce (made with pastured egg yolks, organic extra virgin olive oil, garlic, sea salt and organic black pepper).

Snack/Lunch: caprese salad (mozzarella from 100% grass-fed water buffalos, organic tomatoes, organic basil, and organic extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt)

Dinner: grass-fed beef ribeye with a side of sweet potato fries (fried in free-range duck fat/grass-fed butter, seasoned with paprika, black pepper, and sea salt).

You know, as I read your question I thought "if you were a farmer, you could eat your dream food everyday". And I'm going to be a farmer so... looking forward to it! But to answer...

Breakfast
Pina colada, fresh lemon shrimp dipped in butter

Snack (hey I don't snack, but it's my dream day so i got to fill it with lots of food, right?)
Liver pate on sourdough bread (traditionally made bread doesn't hurt me, only modern breads)

Lunch
My mom's squid (octopus?!) stew, with a dry white wine.

Snack
Really thick layer of fresh cream cheese and rhubard-strawberry preserves on a thin layer of sourdough

Dinner Cozido: chorizo, blood sausage, cabbage, and potatoes cooked a moda das furnas (cooked underground in calderas) with my dad's sweet red wine (we made from our own grapes every year)

And what the heck, why not have a snack before bed?
Whipped fresh cream with sliced banana sauce and sliced strawberry sauce.

If cost, cooking and calories did not matter, I would start out decadent with a quiche lorraine, no pastry of course, with pastured eggs, uncured pastured pork, onions and swiss cheese, lunch would be some sort of a warm steak salad, like yum nua, the thai steak salad with grilled steak (top notch ribeye would be choice) and a fresh dressing of chilis, lime, cilantro, lemongrass and fish sauce (no msg!) and dinner would probably be either lamb chops with cooked greens and tons of butter, or butter fried white fish, like haddock or cod. Snacks would include the best in season of tropical fruits, either papaya or pineapple, plus concord grapes, year round!

God, piles of seafood and buttery spinach omelettes and raw goat's creme fraiche washed down with coconut water from fresh picked young coconuts. So, pretty much what I eat now, plus the creme fraiche.

There seems to be a running theme here: I will eat the best food available to me, and it costs what it costs.

Breakfast: big omelet with mushrooms, onions, and ham in it; potatoes fried in coconut oil with salt and pepper

Lunch: some kind of rich vegetable soup with a tomato base and some kind of meat in it; salad

Dinner: chuck roast that's been cooked with carrots and parsnips; sweet potato with butter.

Dessert: an entire bar of 99% dark chocolate. Because I eat it straight.

Breakfast: Crabcake Benedict with avocado (minus the biscuit of course, it does need to stay pretty Paleo/Primal, perhaps substitute hash browns) with a tropical fruit salad dressed with a teaspoon of my homemade hibiscus jelly topped with full-fat vanilla unsweetened Greek yogurt, iced coffee with heavy whipping cream. In summer. If it's cold, I'd rather have fisherman's eggs, possibly over hashbrowns, with the sardines in marinara/tomato sauce. With Granny Smith apples fried in butter and a hot coffee with heavy whipping cream.

Snack: Evian.

Lunch: A very large assortment of nigiri, maybe a few fusion rolls, oolong tea and a San Pellegrino for the summer. Pho Tai with oolong and a San Pell in winter. (Yes, yes, white rice and white rice noodles. I'm like that.)

Snack: Evian.

Dinner: Small salad with avocado, black olives, a variety of lettuce with s&p, evoo, and red wine vinegar. Ginormous blackened steak and alligator tail (Bayou Surf N Turf!) and braised brussel sprouts, maybe with roasted acorn squash. A San Pellegrino and possibly a few drams of The Macallan 12. All year!

Dessert: Whipped cream with 70%+ dark chocolate raspberry ganache mixed through with fresh raspberries. Possibly with a cold glass of raw milk.
