Even googling "paleo lamb recipes" will get you a lot of hits. (Or whatever protein you have on hand.)

    Not sure if you'd like this for breakfast. Take some bone broth and add some seaweed. Just as it comes to a rolling boil, turn down the heat and crack an egg into it. Stir the egg so that it breaks and sort of flakes as it sets in the boiling water. Like egg drop soup, but different. I sometimes also add a little lemon juice and some cayenne pepper. It's very comforting.

    For the sea food, stews and chowders are good alternatives and they're really filling. Red or white with some potatoes and other veggies. Add fish at the end.

    A poached egg over just about any plain-ish beef dish is like the lazy gurl's hollandaise. I put the poached egg on top, then slap it with my fork so the yolk runs all over the dish.

    Hope some of that helps.
    Thanks Joanie! You know, part of the thing is that I want separation between meals. I think that's the only thing I miss about SAD - every meal had a different personality. Broth is very much a lunch / dinner / bedtime snack for me - don't want to bring it into morning time. Chowder is a good idea though!

    I tend to cook my meats in similar ways all the time, so even thinking about different methodologies (casserole instead of stir fry) is good.

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    There's nothing that makes food taste as good as a 2 day fast.

    You mention ground beef but what about steaks? Or a roast beef? I love both of those. We do them whole on the grill or make kabobs with veggies. Yummy

    I'm kind of a creature of habit and actually love eating the same thing over and over. I almost always have some kind of omelet for lunch because I dig eating them and it's easy to figure the calories. I probably make Mark's carnitas at least once every two weeks, and use the bone to make a fantastic bone broth, which them becomes the base for broccoli rabe soup, which is bone broth with tons of broccoli rabe, shredded chicken or carnitas, egg drop, and mini meatballs. I could eat that for days! And do. Egg drop is basically just whisking a few eggs together in a bowl and then whisking them quickly into hot broth. It adds a lot of protein and texture and tastes so good!

    Oh and Mark's carnita recipe is the most delicious new thing I've tried since becoming Primal. It's ridiculously good.

Mushrooms, peppers, squash, zucchini....or sometimes just ground beef and cabbage, for a casserole type of meal.
    Ha - each to their own, I'm a minimalist onion user! Too much work for the return Casseroles are a great idea though - maybe I'll branch into lamb tajines...

    I'm done with starving myself. Hunger isn't the best sauce for me.

    Great ideas LV - thanks! Do you reckon I could use that carnita recipe for lamb?

    The reason you're so bored with food is because it seems like you put too much thought into it.

    How about eating some nice ice cream? Or, a sourdough grilled cheese sandwich(big recommendation here, good lord it's so good, it takes you back to being a kid). Do some things with gelatin too. Like mashed up bananas, dates, vanilla ice cream and gelatin. Blend, put it in the freezer, and enjoy your monstrous, gelatinous creation like a mad scientist.

    Go out to a chinese buffet and eat all their sweets they create with fruit, so good. Can even pig out on raw shellfish and stuff. Just some things I like to do.

    SOME people like to cook Derp!

    I can't eat sour dough bread. I grew up on it and I every time I eat it I feel like I've been hit by a bus. Banana-date-gel-cream monstrosity sounds good though
