This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

      I'm kind of a creature of habit and actually love eating the same thing over and over. I almost always have some kind of omelet for lunch because I dig eating them and it's easy to figure the calories. I probably make Mark's carnitas at least once every two weeks, and use the bone to make a fantastic bone broth, which them becomes the base for broccoli rabe soup, which is bone broth with tons of broccoli rabe, shredded chicken or carnitas, egg drop, and mini meatballs. I could eat that for days! And do. Egg drop is basically just whisking a few eggs together in a bowl and then whisking them quickly into hot broth. It adds a lot of protein and texture and tastes so good!

      Oh and Mark's carnita recipe is the most delicious new thing I've tried since becoming Primal. It's ridiculously good.
      Great ideas LV - thanks! Do you reckon I could use that carnita recipe for lamb?

        The reason you're so bored with food is because it seems like you put too much thought into it.

        How about eating some nice ice cream? Or, a sourdough grilled cheese sandwich(big recommendation here, good lord it's so good, it takes you back to being a kid). Do some things with gelatin too. Like mashed up bananas, dates, vanilla ice cream and gelatin. Blend, put it in the freezer, and enjoy your monstrous, gelatinous creation like a mad scientist.

        Go out to a chinese buffet and eat all their sweets they create with fruit, so good. Can even pig out on raw shellfish and stuff. Just some things I like to do.

          I can't eat sour dough bread. I grew up on it and I every time I eat it I feel like I've been hit by a bus. Banana-date-gel-cream monstrosity sounds good though

              yb, I honestly don't know about making carnitas with lamb because I don't know about the flavor of lamb - I haven't had it since I was a kid. I can't even remember what it tastes like. Would those flavors go well with lamb? I mean, as the Barefoot Contessa says....how bad could it be!

                Add in some corn or other grain based products. Thats adds a whole new dimension. Tacos, pancakes, wraps, sandwhiches, french toast...

                  Smoothies are a good idea... this is going to sound weird, but do you ever make hot ones?!
                  No, I tend to like cool and creamy in the morning. But soups are a GREAT idea.

                  I also love chunky salads.

                  I have a few versions of chicken salad- cut up chicken breast, veggies and dressings - but I use things like artichokes, asparagus, olives. I play around alot with dressings. Herb vinegarettes, creamy dressings.

                    I'm certainly not motivated to do this myself. I just remember how good that first meal tasted.

                      Hey, I haven't read the whole thread, but nuts and seeds definitely aren't your enemies, especially if you go for organic ones, raw ones, soak your almonds/brazil nuts if you want... (I have a weakness for roasted, salted cashews myself, even if they do trigger me to binge, I'm not worried about my weight so I don't care if I overeat once in awhile). I like to top my salads with avocado slices, salt, and flax seeds, I love pistachios... nuts bring some good nutrients to the table. Just think, in that little nut is everything it takes to grow a whole tree. Lots of magnesium, too, which is nature's muscle relaxant and helps me sleep, I find.

                        Zach, I know you're going to think I'm orthorexic for saying this but - there's no way in hell I would go back to wheat products. Maybe a croissant as a treat, but honestly I don't miss bread (or feeling like sh!t physically) one bit.

                          Unfortunately I've been brainwashed by Ray Peat to avoid PUFA as much as possible..! I can just about manage avocado...

                                I would just try to collect 5 or 6 recipes for each kind of meat/whatever, and then you'd only be eating that flavor profile 1x a month or six weeks. It worked well for me until DH took over cooking and now we eat the same 5 meals every week.

                                What also helped me was simply not eating if it wasn't appetizing. This past week, there were two dinners that didn't sound at all appetizing and one breakfast. It's the stuff that I eat all the time, but I just didn't want it. So, I skipped the meal, and then had the next one. When that meal popped up again, I opted to have it and it was delicious.
