Yesterday I had a cup of coffee with stevia and whipping cream, sweet potato chips, Brad's Kale Chips, a pan-fried pork chop, and 2 cups sauteed squash, water.
My lower fat/carb primal days are usually, 2 meals: 1 cup of coffee with stevia and whipping cream in the a.m. 1 pan-fried bone-in thin pork chop, 2 cups sauteed squash. 1 baked boneless, skinless chicken breast, 2 cups sauteed squash. Water.
Sometimes I substitute a meat with 1/3 pound grass-fed ground beef dipped in ketchup. I have read that mustard is more nutritious than ketchup so I am probably going to try 1:1 ketchup and mustard next time.
This is my go-to primal, trying to lose weight meal. I used the Paleo Tracker to try to figure out which foods I could have the most quantity of to stay within my desired macro range. I am trying to lose weight before I go into menopause. I am limited with veggies because I can't tolerate many of them post cholecystectomy.
My potato hack days are usually, 2 meals: 1 cup of coffee with stevia and whipping cream in the a.m. 1 pound baked, refrigerator cooled, skinless potatoes mashed with 1 cup fat-free chicken broth (or fat-free beef broth), once or twice a day. Water. Sometimes I have only ketchup with one of my 1 lb. potato meals but it slows weight loss a bit.
On my 20% days, I try not to have grains because they result in excessive bloating, but sometimes I slip/crave. It's really not worth it considering the bloat, but life is short and I don't resist all of my strong non-sugar cravings anymore. My favorite non-holiday 20% meals lately are pastrami, provolone, mayo and mustard roll-ups, chili with non-gmo corn chips, and taco salad with non-gmo corn chips. Sometimes I crave organic lowfat milk.
