    I think it's perfectly fine to eat same veggies very day. Of course, a wider range will provide more variety and micronutrients and make your diet more interesting.
    I am more careful with eating same protein sources too often. Actually recently someone on here mentioned an allergy which was brought on by an egg "overdose", it was my case a while back. Sometimes (especially when it comes to eggs) you have a minor intolerance you have never noticed before, eating them too often can trigger a more serious intolerance.
    My PT says I shouldn't eat same protein ore often than every 5 days but I find it a bit excessive Although I do try to vary my protein (meat, fish, no eggs, as I am trying to "heal" before reintroducing them) - I try to make sure to eat about 10-15 different sources of protein (meaning different animals/seafood) or more a week.

    I eat a different protein every day, and usually different veggies also at least at dinner time - I still try to rotate variety through for the family, but there are certain things that I have daily especially at lunch and/or afternoon or even w/my dinner that maybe the others aren't having. Sometimes it's just easier plus I know it's stuff that I need so I don't have to think about it as much.

    Go for it.

    I'd personally find it insanely boring, but there are plenty of folks out there who do the same thing day after day.

    However, I also agree with the comments about nutrient variety. If you only eat one or two veggies, there are probably a bunch of vitamins/minerals/etc. that you are lacking unless you supplement.

    you don't have to have variety, just make sure you are eating plenty of meat. for example I recently read "The Fat of the Land" by Vilhjalmur Stefansson. Note that the Eskimo's lived exclusively on meat. He says most of the summer fish was exclusively eaten, in colder months exclusively caribou was eat, and in may and april they lived exclusively on eggs. Nutritional antropology and studies of their bone structures tell us they were one of the healthiest groups of people to walk the planet, free of disease and carries.

    I believe it is pretty much the most 'natural' way of eating. Why I think that way: we humans evolved eating what we had available which in most cases was a lot of one thing and not that much of all others common things to eat at any given moment. Think seasonality ....

    Me personally, I eat pretty simply BUT with these 'weird' habits of eating from a lot of something on a given day, and after a day or two - rinse and repeat of the same. For example - today I ate a lots of grilled trout (over a pound) and lots of bananas. Two days ago I ate 10 lbs of watermelon and 2 lbs of grilled pork. The day before - 15 eggs with homemade pesto.


    Cheers

    Sounds a lot like me, haha!

    A couple of weeks ago I was on a chicken and coconut fix. For two days, I ate an entire chicken each day and went through a can of coconut milk each day, too, and didn't eat anything else other than that. I go through phases like this probably weekly.

    Regarding vegetables the more color in your meal the better. Grilling, sauteing or baking a variety of vegetables together tastes good even with little seasoning and is really easy to do.

    Is there no end to this politically correct nonsense?

    while the term "Eskimo" has come to be seen as somewhat pejorative in Canada and Greenland, it is still used commonly in the United States, and it is technically more correct than "Inuit," since that term is not proper or accepted in referring to the Yupik and Inupiat peoples.
