  • What did you eat yesterday?

    I am sure I can't be the only one sometimes struggling with meal ideas in the beginning. So I was hoping some of you more experienced (and maybe not so experienced) folks would be kind enough to share an idea of your typical meals? (Yesterday, the day before, whenever. Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner/Snacks etc.)

    I had a cup of coffee with cream in the morning

    For lunch I had Copper River Salmon baked with garlic lemon butter and a salad with an olive oil, vinegar, and avocado dressing, and green beans with butter

    For dinner I had ground beef and cabbage (sauteed with spices) and cooked spinach with butter

      Gah, I can't remember that far back, LOL! I do know I had a salad for lunch yesterday. Mixed baby greens with tomatoes, red peppers and a dressing made of guacamole mixed with balsamic and olive oil. Sooooooooo good. With that I had some leftover pot roast. I think it was the Italian pot roast recipe from the Primal Cookbook.

      Tonight we're having lamb stew. Sort of. Not really stew I guess. I sliced one onion and two carrots and put them in the crock pot. Put 2 lbs of lamb over them. Added 3/4 cup water. Sprinkled with rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. I haven't eaten it yet but it smells divine. We'll have red and green cabbage sauted in bacon fat on the side (because we had some the other night and I didn't get enough and have been wanting more).

      For snacks I've been making meatballs. I don't have an exact recipe (yet) but it's two pounds of meat, two zucchinis, two eggs, an onion and a lot of garlic and various spices (that's the part I haven't written down yet - oops). I used the food processor to do the veggies. I used half beef and half lamb today and they were SO good I kept eating the damn things (I'm supposed to refrigerate them for snacks, lol!).

                  Chopped chicken liver, made traditional Jewish recipe, on flax crackers; grilled gf all beef weiners; fiddlehead ferns and bacon. Primal peach ice cream.

                  It's warm-hot weather now, so I make and drink a couple 2gt.pitchers of a variety tea daily.

                    so far i've drank a lot of tea and had 2 omelet muffins... work days = boring, regimented food days

                    i cant wait for some days off to make some of the fantastic-sounding things people have posted lately.

                      Crustless quiche (baked in a frying pan anyway)? 8 eggs, 1 pound ground beef, peppers, onions, kale, garlic & curry spices. Some of that still in the fridge. Fresh strawberries in coconut milk w/ macadamias for a snack. Had my coffee w/ a good amount of coconut butter.

                        I eat pretty much the same for a few weeks and then switch


                        Coffee with cream

                        Fried coleslaw with onion (just fry an onion in coconut oil and add few big handfuls of pre-shredded slaw mix) - surprisingly tasty. I make a big pan of it and stick it in tupperwares for the week. Top with 3 HB eggs and some butter.

                        Big salad topped with braised red cabbage and roasted pork/chicken with a dijon vinaigrette.

                        Dinner varies the most - lately we have been grilling a lot of chicken and burgers.

                        Dessert is either sliced almonds heated up in a pan with some cinnamon, a few squares of 85% Lindt or homemade coconut butter.

                          Doncha just love good Jewish Chicken Liver Pate? I make a pint sized container of them every other week, and eat it with a spoon over several days.
                          Not much else beats it for yummy!! One of the few things DH doesn't like.....good, more for me!! And thank goodness for the food processor, makes short work of it all!!
                          I also love fried chicken liver, floured before Primal, but I stopped making them, there is nothing in the world that I cooked that spit and popped hot oil at me like they do. Even with a splatter shield or lid.

                          Yesterdays food: hot coffee with cream for breakie
                          no lunch, too busy getting ready for guests
                          low & slow BBQ'd pork ribs, Caprese tomato & basil salad, and about 3 bites of tuna Macaroni salad( which carbs left me hungry for the rest of the evening....I resisted all temptations....the biggest, more of that salad, should have sent it home with guests!!)
