Bored with my food - any suggestions?
Well, I'm not bored yet per say... but I'm starting to feel a distinct repetitiveness in what I'm eating!
Typically my meals cycle around:
- Sea Food (shrimp, mussels, calamari, sea weed)
- Ground beef
- Wild salmon
- Lamb (usually cooked in it's own broth)
- Liver (rarely)
- Minimal dairy (milk, a bit of yogurt)
- Coconut milk
- All fruit and veg
I'm stumped about what else I could eat. Those are the only foods I actually crave but I know I'm going to start getting sick of them soon. Breakfast is getting particularly challenging: I don't always feel like eggs and I prefer to eat something warming first thing in the day. I've been wanting oatmeal lately, but it's purely cos' of the comfort factor...
I don't eat:
- Chicken or pig
- Quinoa (tears my stomach up)
- Edit: Nuts or seeds (try to limit PUFA)
- Organs (other than liver... I'm just not ready...!)
Would love your suggestions
EDIT: to everyone suggesting I use spices: you've missed this sentence------------> Oh, if anyone is looking for ideas on how to combine flavours, spices etc. I recommend "The Flavour Thesaurus." It's amazing!

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." 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."
