  • A meal of fat and no meat okay?

    I am wondering if I have to have meat at every meal. For instance... I made a coconut smoothie (coconut milk, 1/2 c. wild blueberries, spinach, ice cubes) for breakfast the other day and didn't want anything else, but had 2 hard-boiled eggs, also. Would it have been okay just to have the smoothie? Would I have gotten hungry sooner without the protein?

    no problem. you don't need to have meat at every meal. what is important is that you have protein. the eggs took care of that.

      Right... the eggs took care of the protein, but I didn't want them... just felt I should have them for the protein. So the smoothie alone wouldn't be okay because there is no protein, right?

        Protein is the most satiating nutrient, so chances are you would have gotten hungry sooner without the eggs.

          You could try adding a scoop of brown rice protein powder to your smoothies if you are okay with protein powders and want to feel full longer but not have meat or eggs at every meal.

            No meat in your meal? BLASPHEMY! OFF WITH HIS HEAD!

            Seriously, it's okay. You had carbs, fat, and protein (incomplete) in your smoothie, not to mention the protein in the eggs. There is nothing against just having a smoothie, but having a fatty cut of meat with veggie/butter is more satiety. Odds are that you will get hungry quickly with just a smoothie.

              LOL. Thanks... you guys are funny and helpful. I think if I hadn't had the hard boiled eggs I would have been hungry.

                Put the eggs in the smoothie - I often put them in my protein shakes, tastes great!

                      Hi Dragonfly,
                      I know they aren't primal but on one of Mark's blogs on alternative protein powders for people who are lactose intolerant, he reviews different protein powders and rice protein powder is one of his recommendations. He says that "Rice protein powder is created by isolating the protein from the brown rice grain. Rice is already one of the least offensive grains out there, so a smattering of rice-based amino acids will work okay. You’re not going to absorb or digest the rice protein with as much ease as with animal-based protein, but that’s fine. A reader mentioned that any form of dairy protein powder resulted in great discomfort; if that’s true, rice protein powder may be a good choice."

                      The full post is here:

                        I'm not a big fan of this. There are certainly better options... like EGGS.

                        I like using raw eggs in my shakes, when I make them. They give a nice thick, malted milk shake sort of effect.

                        Forget the grains, even rice. Not worth it.

                            In the summer I tend to do smoothies for breakfast a lot of the time. I RARELY add eggs, SOMETIMES use a protein powder (whey in my case) but it NEVER bothers me to not have a protein with it. And often times its a case of breakfast at 6-7am and lunch doesn't happen until 2-3 or even 4pm. But the smoothie will hold me.

                            So my 2 cents is: Make your smoothie however you want. Just make sure you have a good snack along with you in case you DO get hungry later so you don't break and grab a snickers bar just cause you are starving!

                              I kind of was too!

                              Of course considering how AWESOME the fat on my crock-pot pork chops was the other night I coulda eaten WAY more of that!
