    DAILY FUEL :: What do you eat?

    I have a horrible memory. Also I get bored easily. I would love to have a 'diet guide' from any of you that have found your food groove that I could post on my refrigerator so that one day I could do a "Sam" food plan or an "Allison" or a "Trent" or a "Dave" or a "Lisa" ...a "Mark" might help too.

    I know it's not a perfect solution but it might help to jumpstart my memory about what I should or shouldn't be eating and give me a more creative way of looking at the daily food grind.

    Eat meat, veggies, and fruit. Everything else is fluff.
    That's a post it note you can take to the bank.

    What she said!

    ok, maybe a tad more helpful here is a typical day for me...

    B: I make a mocha with 16oz of cold coffee, 2 scoops of whey powder that is sweetened with stevia, 2T of cocoa powder, 2T of heavy cream. With that I have a 1/2C of full fat fage yogurt, with a squirt of stevia and 1/2C of wild blueberries

    L: put a cup of shredded cabbage in a bowl, on top of that a 6oz can of wild caught salmon, on top of that a small Haas avocado, on top of that 1T chia seeds, then a drizzle of your preferred oil, and a drizzle of your preferred vinegar-I usually drink a cup of Stash chai tea with 1/3C of Trader Joes light coconut milk (it only has 2 ingredients and is easy/cheap for me)

    D: roasted borccoli, roasted cauliflower, small caesar salad, 8oz. Laura's lean 92% sauteed with 1T minced dehydrated onions, 1T dried parsley, 1T dreid thyme (these soak up the bit of extra fat from the meat and make it so I don't drain it)-I usually drink a cup of Good Earth original caffeine free with the 1/3 C coconut milk

    Your results may vary-depending on your weight, body fat%, how much you want to lose, how much you exercise, etc.

    Okay, I'll be nicer too. Some mornings I IF (intermittent fast), and wait until noon to eat. If I'm genuinely hungry for breakfast, I have scrambled eggs, or french toast (recipe on my blog), or berries and cream, or custard... really whatever I feel like having

    lunch is either leftovers, tuna fish, shrimp, or a BAS (big @$$ salad). Sometimes I'll have an Italian soda and nothing else (made with heavy cream and sparkling water). If I ate breakfast, sometimes I'll IF til dinner.

    dinner is always meat & veggies

    I try to limit my carbs between 20g-30g. I drink herbal tea like an alcoholic (curse whoever on this board suggested republic of tea and all their ridiculous flavors!). I eat anywhere between 1200 & 2000 cals depending on how hungry I am. I eat around 60% fat. The rest is protein.

    oh, yea my macros...protein is about 160g, carbs around 50g, the rest fat (about 50%), calories tend to hover between 1500 and 1800, yesterday though was like 2700-very very rare though.

    My breakfasts vary based on my mood (and I'll be more specific about that in a minute) and I usually eat leftovers for lunch and then dinner is meat and veggies. Sometimes a little fruit is thrown in the mix for flavor. Yesterday's meal was:

    -Banana pancake (egg whisked together with .5 a smashed banana, pan fried, and topped with butter, no syrup needed!) with a side of chicken breast leftovers and herbal tea with heavy cream

    -Taco bowl leftovers (seasoned ground meat, I had rice but you can leave that out since it's technically a no-no, topped with chopped tomato and avocado)

    -Dinner was leftover chicken breast dipped in BBQ sauce and sweet potato casserole (mashed sweet potato mixed with cinnamon, butter, and a little canned pineapple).

    My wife is putting together a recipe book of the primal things we want to cook regularly. It makes it easy to find things to cook. Lulu Buffett's chicken salad is a regular item for lunches (make a big batch on Sunday). Meat chili is another satisfying dish that can be made in bulk. A pot roast is an easy slow-cooker item that can also last several days. We also keep a block of cheese and some fruit on hand in case a snack is needed, and a handful of nuts will tide you over nicely if you're in a rush.

    For breakfasts, my day-in, day-out routine is simply OMELETS. Ham, cheese, and onion...

    Dinners for me got a lot easier when I realized that there are only at most like five or six ways to prepare meat, and all the variety comes from herbs/spices. If its tough you braise it or stew it or bake it and maybe marinade it. If its lean you pan fry it or broil it or grill it. If it's a roast you roast it. Then just cook the vegetables accordingly.

    Always cook with fat.

    Breakfast:
    100g bacon
    2 eggs
    spinach
    cooked beetroot or other vegetables

    Lunch:
    240g smoked salmon
    1/2 avocado
    lettuce
    whatever vegetables we've got

    Dinner:
    about 200g meat or fish of some sort
    parsnips
    sweet potato
    mushrooms
    carrots and whatever else I fancy

    I do sometimes snack a bit in between, usually things like dark chocolate, coconut oil, berries or something made from ground almonds.

    Breakfast is boringly predictable: 3 tbs of non-fat Greek yogurt, 3 of low fat cottage cheese, a sprinkling of almonds, dash of flax and topped off w/ blueberries. Occasionally I'll throw in a couple turkey sausages. All very satisfying (& virtually 0 carbs in the mix).
