      B: Flat White on my way to work or now- homemade coffee with cream that I take to work in a thermos and a hard boiled egg
      L: Large salad with canned wild salmon or leftover roast meat
      Snack: Apple or hard boiled eggs or a 1/4 of a banana with a tablespoon of almond butter
      Dinner: Veggies and meat- generally steak or ground meat. Sometimes I have smoothies for dinner if I'm not too hungry.
      Dessert: 85% dark chocolate or cream and blueberries

      Cheats: wine- about 2-5 glasses per week.

        I eat a lot of curries, soups/stews, and bigass salads because I'm new to cooking and am not very good at it. I make it a point to eat 1/2 avocado and at least 1 RAW vegetable and fruit (besides the cooked veggies, above) each day. My shopping cart is mostly produce. My 20% (not cheat) is almost always sushi and stuffed grape leaves and, on rare occasion, hummus and a bit of potato. I have sushi every 2 weeks, the others far less regularly. I have no desire for chocolate, so don't bother with it. I'm not a drinker. I have about an 8-hour feeding window; just not hungry the rest of the time.

            Cashews in the afternoon.
            Chicken fried in bacon and onions with butter and coconut oil. Lots of raw tomatoes and cucumber.

              Most days, I eat 2-3 eggs, 1/2 lb grassfed meat, 3-6 oz fish, 4-6 servings of various veggies, half an avocado, some form of coconut, a serving of fruit. Less frequently, I'll throw in 1-4 oz of dairy or 1-2 oz nuts or seeds. Here's what it looks like:

              Normal weekday for me

              Late breakfast: BAS with miscellaneous veggies and HB eggs OR canned fish (mixed with my daily dose of Carlson's fish oil instead of dressing)

              Late lunch: HB eggs OR canned fish (whichever I didn't have with breakfast), half an avocado

              Pre or post-workout (sometimes, depending on schedule): Half a piece of fruit, maybe with coconut cream or almond butter. OR Greek yogurt and berries.

              Dinner: Grassfed meat, roasted/steamed/sauteed veggies. Maybe some berries/coconut cream/dark chocolate/whiskey.

              Normal weekend day for me

              Breakfast: Fried eggs and bacon or omelette, maybe with sliced fruit/veggies.

              Snack (maybe): Half a banana with coconut cream, or Greek yogurt, a handful of nuts, or sardines/kippers.

              Lunch: BAS with miscellaneous veggies and canned fish and avocado mixed with fish oil.

              Dinner: Grassfed meat, roasted/steamed/sauteed veggies, sweet potato.

              I "cheat," typically when eating out, maybe 1-2 meals per month. I don't do the fake-flours thing.

                  I eat meat (beef, prok and chicken mainly so far although starting on rabbit and venison soon), fish (mackeral, sardines, salmon, pollack), shellfish (mussles and prawns), lots of fruit and veg (esp green leafies), nuts, lots of 85%+ dark chocolate, olive oil, balsamic vinegar (not paleo), herbs, spices, lots of coconut milk and coconut fat, butter, cream in my coffee and herbal tea.

                  I can't eat eggs, avocados, bananas (3 of the BEST primal foods imo), most brassicas, gluten or much dairy without being very sick. Last time I ate an egg I spent 8 hours in bed in pain and vomiting IBS sucks.

                  I don't hold back on my carbs at all really, I don't have weight to lose and I'm young so I'm enjoying fruit and the odd few potatoes without worrying too much for now.
