    For variety, you could make larger quantities of dinner every now and then to have for lunch the next day. Minimalism is great, unless you'll become bored and start eating non-primal foods as a result because you feel deprived.

    I have two eggs every morning (I tried to get pasture eggs when possible) and I take a banana with me to work and have that as an early morning snack. I'm not sure I could do eggs twice a day. I usually have my butternut squash 'soup' (it's more like pureed veggies) for lunch and some nuts for a afternoon snack.

    Just plugged in seven bananas and a dozen eggs into fitday. For such a restrictive menu, it is amazingly complete. A few other foods here and there would easily augment the few micronutrients that show up slightly low, but any serious deficiency is rather unlikely. Except that egg whites are said to interfere with biotin uptake, but only if undercooked - and I suspect only when combined with other foods in the stomach.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I thought bananas were mostly glucose.

    I think, Angeline, that's only if they are very ripe.

    Sounds like you might not be eating enough. I would cut the eggs and pop another banana or two a couple hours prior to workouts/sprinting on those days (or just add them).

    I believe it is close to half/half.

    Been eating 3-4 dozen eggs a week for several years now, they are a very convenient food.
    I like banana's as well, some days I will have 3 or 4, or 6 only in the evening though.

    Back in late grammar school a teacher told us that milk and oranges would keep us alive for a long time. But dinosaurs roamed the earth back then and milk is most likely not what it used to be. (I remember "milk men.")

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
