Paleo-tastic!

Filed under: real talk — Mara @ 12:07 pm

Wondering what you can eat on a paleo-style diet? Wondering how you can get enough calories?

Check out this six meal, 4000 calorie breakdown of one night’s eating by Dallas of TheWhole9. It’s insane. And it sounds SO GOOD!

Post-workout Meal 1 (around 7:30): 6 egg whites, 1 whole egg, 2 medium-large sweet potatoes.

Meal 2 (half an hour later): 10 oz local, organic, grass-fed sirloin steak (rare, of course!), 12 oz broccolini, 4 oz almonds, 1 pear.

Meal 2.5 (dessert from Meal 2, really): 1 can (14 oz) coconut milk, 3 oz walnuts, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 cup frozen raspberries.

Meal 3 (about 90 minutes after 2.5): the second 10 oz sirloin steak I grilled for Meal 2, 2 Jazz apples with about half a jar of Sunbutter, and about 1.5 cups of sweet potato mash.

Meal 4: 5 hard-boiled eggs, 6 oz fresh blackberries, a big handful of brazil nuts.

Meal 5: 8 oz smoked salmon, half a honeydew melon (a DELICIOUS combination, BTW), and some sauteed zucchini/onions with fresh basil and lime juice.

“Meal” 6: an unrevealed (but very large) amount of Purely Decadent Mint Chip coconut milk “ice cream”. This stuff is CRACK. Be warned. Melissa introduced me to their Chocolate Explosion flavour, and we’ve been spreading the Decadent Love ever since.

Now, he’s obviously not a strict Zone eater, but he has some hefty amounts of protein in there, not to mention tons of fat.

And as evidence that this guy is not obese and that this kind of eating in fact leads to optimal health, check out this pic:

  1. Wow. Meal 2.5 sounds incredible. I have to try that. And I thought I died and went to heaven when I first tasted Purely Decadent mint chip coconut milk ice cream. It’s insanely delicious.
