    Ok to eat the same food daily, or lots of one food?

    Primal Fuel
    Is it ok to eat the same thing every day. Take broccoli. There simply aren't many green veggies that I know how to cook or can cook well.

    Is there anything wrong with eating like two whole stalks of broccoli every day?

    It is a good start but I would look at roasting veg, etc get some variety for your sanity.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    You're going to get a better range of nutrients if you eat a wider variety of vegetables.

    If I see something unusual in the produce section, sometimes I'll get it just because I'm curious, then go home and Google recipes.

    I'm concerned about od'ing on anti-nutrients, or something like that. I probably have little to worry about, especially compared to eating junk food.

    Unless you have a specific issue (like I can't handle sodium nitrite - if I ate a crapload of celery I'd probably be hating life) then the real issue isn't usually getting too much of a nutrient, it's missing out on a whole bunch of them. There are a lot of nutrients that are readily available in food that don't translate too well into supplements, so you can't just toss back a multivitamin and assume you're good.

    I'm trending the same way myself. I don't have the energy to cook something new every other day.
    But find at least two other veggies, preferably of different colors: carrots and red cabbage, for example.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    Goitrogens like broccoli and other cruciferous veggies are thought to be harmless when cooked thoroughly and eaten infrequently.

    Do you mean is it bad to eat one specific thing daily? Depends on what you eat daily, i guess. If you make it a habit to eat 5 handfuls of raw nuts a day, stop that, but if you're eating nutritious things day in and out, I don't see a problem. I eat pretty much the same things day in and out, including a lot of greens, a lot of starchy vegetables, and a lot of eggs or some other source of protein. I work out, I take some supplements, I'm in good health.
