  • Perfect Primal menu!

    I have been thinking about this for the past couple days. Its really easy to not get enough of certain nutrients and become deficient. So I'm putting this out there for our resident experts!
    What would be the perfect weekly menu/meal plan that gives you all the nutrients you need without supplements?

    Imagine said person has no allergies, and is willing to eat anything.
    Calm the f**k down.

      I just choked on my water. Going with the Swiftian nutritional approach?

        no, seriously, if you wanted to make a meal plan that had everything you need in it, what you get?

            I did a post on my blog of what my food for a day would look like:
            http://foodfloraandfelines.blogspot....y-in-life.html

            I would say it's fairly complete nutritionally, vitamin D from the fish etc. The only thing I think would be lacking a bit is calcium, but then the overall diet doesn't promote much bone mobilisation or calcium loss anyway so I like to think that counteracts that somewhat. I do however take 5000IU vitamin D and 1000mg calcium with magnesium to play it safe.

              What a beautiful salad, but I'm surprised you added corn to your tuna. Corn is a grain, and extremely hard to digest.

              Awesome blog, I'll definitely check it out often.

                  Thanks very much! Yes for some reason for ages I had it in my head that sweetcorn was a bit different to maize, and that it had a lower starch content etc so I thought a small bit would be ok. I haven't read any of the books on primal yet, I've just been piecing it together from the net so I've made a few mistakes along the way!

                              Since you're likely a vitamin D replete individual, you may want to reconsider the 1000 mg calcium per day:

                              http://heartscanblog.blogspot.com/
                              "Conventional advice tells us to supplement calcium, 1200 mg per day, to preserve bone health and reduce blood pressure.

                              Here's a curious observation I've now witnessed a number of times: Some people who supplement this dose of calcium while also supplementing vitamin D sufficient to increase 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood levels to 60-70 ng/ml develop abnormally high levels of blood calcium, hypercalcemia.

                              This makes sense when you realize that intestinal absorption of calcium doubles or quadruples when vitamin D approaches desirable levels. Full restoration of vitamin D therefore causes a large quantity of calcium to be absorbed, more than you may need. In addition, two studies from New Zealand suggest that 1200-1300 mg calcium with vitamin D per day doubles heart attack risk."

                              thevitamindcouncil.org also thinks we don't need 1000 mg per day.

                              Now what we do need daily is still a work in progress. In the meantime, I'm taking 600 mg per day.
