    This feedback is great!
    I wasn't looking for anything specific, just wondering people's thoughts.
    I will look for better cheese (white I guess?) and shred it myself. Thanks!
    We microwave the broccoli from a frozen state to hot. Then I usually add butter to it. Perhaps I will try the oven method, thanks for the tip!
    I will look for dry curd...never heard of it before.
    The weight is 1 pound, net of the plate. i.e. the food weighs 1 pound.
    I don't aim for a certain amount, it is just that a couple of my meals have weighed in at 1-lb, they are usually the heaviest meal I eat in one sitting.
    Not sure what PHD means.
    There were garden tomatoes on the counter in the food prep area, I forgot to eat some!
    I don't normally eat orange or purple foods...guess I should look for some.
    The chicken was grilled with a dry BBQ Rub on it, not sauce. Brown Sugar is listed but its last in the ingredient list (all others are spices). I'm OK with it.

    Thanks everyone!

      Where does any of that say that sugar has anything to do with AGE's? Or that the Maillard reaction takes place inside the human body rather than on the grill?

        It doesn't. That's the science that uses the word "Maillard reaction" in vivo (ergo in vivo temperatures), which someone refuted.

        The science suggesting that increased and maintained blood sugar levels causing venal cellular damage is at least compelling is out there, but you can Google as well as I.

          I'm just not sure how you think a little barbecue sauce on chicken is a recipe for "brown, crusty arteries" in 20 years. Seems like you're making several unsupported leaps in logic.

            Because BBQ sauce is made from sugar. "a little barbecue sauce on chicken" isn't any different or more dangerous than "a little sugar in a scone". But there are more reasons to avoid it than as a metabolic fuel. Saying "a little barbecue sauce on chicken" will cause atherosclerosis is like saying "a little barbecue sauce on chicken" will cause insulin resistance. I don't think I said anything that extreme. But it is true because sugar is often hidden (56 names, right?), many people on the S.A.D. are walking around with elevated blood sugar levels (as evidenced by increased insulin resistance) because we tend to absent-mindedly let it accumulate and the Primal community as a whole is pretty down on it.

            The spirit of the comment was: If you're trying to be Primal or paleo or whatever, which advocates not using excessive sugars, don't forget that it's in BBQ sauce.

            Taking the opportunity to bring the Maillard rxn & AGEPs up re: BBQ sauce makes sense because we're talking about browning meats, not bread. And our circulatory system is made of meat,not bread. If anyone made any leaps off of that, it wasn't me.

              Dammit, I wanted to say that.

              IMHO a pound is a pretty light meal. I wouldn't sleep well on such an empty stomach, but YMMV.

                  BBQ chicken - I'd be eating organic with skin, chicken thighs. I like them with coriander & thai fish sauce marinade then grilled or in a coconut curry.
                  broccoli w/cheese topping - Fresh boiled or steamed, nothing on it for me. Frozen I'd have to doctor it up as it lacks the right flavor and texture.
                  olives - fine as is
                  cottage cheese -They have some good brands like Nancy's which are cultured
                  avocado I'd have more of the avocado if I could get it past the rest of the family

                  ultimately your goals are important towards a critique. Since I only do 2 meals a day, I'd be hungry after that plate of food, so I would eat a large salad. And then be looking for a few spoons of Almond butter or something to make me feel like I had a meal. However compared to the average american dinner you get 5 stars.

                      I think that's what the empty spot in the middle of the plate is for. A pound of braised meat or a big filet would fit right in there perfectly.

                              My dinners looked similar to OP's at the beginning of Primal for me. That's how I was able to lose weight: small yet satisfying meals.
