    I think variety is best, so if you are already eating eggs, throw in some fish every now and then. They are different and therefore will give you different nutrients. Also, a steak once a month certainly won't hurt, and could actually help quite a bit!! :-) If you stick with the same nutrient dense foods over and over again, there is no doubt you will be better off then eating a bunch of grains and sugar. However, there is a variety of good, nutrient dense food out there, and to really have all that your body needs to function at its best, the more variety you can include the better.

      Don't be to wrapped up in Plant Protein numbers, much of it is wrapped in toxins or not even bioavailable to begin with by the time it goes out the other end.

        Just read that - very interesting. Ihaven't been at the soy altar :P - it was a replacement for dairy - any good suggestions for a substitute for yoghurt without soy or dairy?

          I don't like milk or yogurt, so I just don't eat/drink it. I do like cheese and butter (in small amounts), so I do get a bit of dairy in that way. I do not eat soy products at all, except for an occasional splash of soy sauce

          I'm newer to primal eating and don't get bogged down with all the numbers-I just eat what I enjoy and call it good

            FISH over EGGS in my book - but... Include them BOTH if you can! I love fish because there are TONS of varieties - TONS! Salmon one night, Halibut the next, Sardines the following... You never get bored!

              I have zero scientific evidence other than what I read on MDA, but I do know from my experience being vegetarian and trying to eat paleo/primal that it sucks. I definitely felt as though I was missing out on key nutrients. Even with no wheat or rice, only sticking with quinoa and beans, I would still experience an energy slump midday, bloating, flatulence, etc. After 12 years as a vegetarian, I started eating meat again a few weeks ago, all types of meats, and cut the rest out. Best decision EVER. I understand the difficulty in reintegrating animal proteins after abstaining for years, but if you are open to trying fish, I think it would be worth it for you to try both eggs AND fish.

              Ditto to an omelette with salmon. Delicious. Try it with smoked salmon for even more flavor.

              Also, I love peanut butter too, but having discovered almond butter, I may never go back to peanut butter...

                  Almond milk would be better than soy. Also, coconut milk. And coconut milk is delicious.

                    Thanks for all your input on this Groks and Grokesses, I have found it hard to get my head around all this stuff. Cierra - nothing you said was redundant - thanks for taking the time to give me some good advice. It is nice that despite me not approaching this regime from quite the same angle and not being as strict as you people seem - we find the common ground so I can work out how this stuff can work for me.

                      As others have said, both fish and eggs are great.

                      You seem to be approaching this from a nutrition angle. If and when you are ready to add some red meat to your diet, a very small amount of liver is basically the most nutritious food there is.
                      Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

                        I think you should check better what soy is and how soy products are prepared. Milk will sound like poetry in comparison. Stay away from soy, this is the worst food ever sold to humanity.

                        Apart this, I agree with you that diary is not 100% suitable for humans, but fortunately there are some ways to improve it: fermentation is one. Consider preparing your own homemade yoghurt and kefir.
                        Also, goat and sheep milk is much better than cow's milk, the caseins contained in cow's milk are different and promote inflammation much more than goat's and sheep's. That said, you can do fine without diary at all

                          I eat 12 eggs a day. An excellent food.

                            I really like eggs, all oily fish, dairy, and meats. Veggies not so much but I eat them. I could live without them except for the fiber. Soy is really not a good choice.
