*3 whole eggs/1 piece fruit

*Pre W/O- Brown rice/chicken/vegetables

*Post W/O- Whey Protein/2 pieces fruit

*Tuna Mayo

*100g Almonds

*Salmon/Vegetables/Olive oil

*Natural Peanut Butter(trying to find a replacement)

Any ideas? I am on a strict budget so find it hard to get variation in my diet. Eating this day to day get's a little boring.

What do you do to make your diets more interesting?

Buy different cuts of meat and learn to prepare them differently. Beef: you can stew it, broil it, saute it, braise it, grill it, fry it, roast it, bbq it, make a soup.

Use different flavored herbs, oils, sauces, etc. Go down the ethnic aisle in the grocery store. With appropriate veggie choices you can create a dozen completely different meals from the same bag of chicken breasts.

Buy odd vegetables and look recipes for them up on the internet.

yeah, i second the trader joes nut butters! i am currently hooked on the cashew/macadamia. at whole foods it would be more than $10 a jar probably, but there it's like $4. more than peanut butter, but way better for you.

Learn to cook. Buy some cheap second hand cook book from Amazon or elsewhere. And as Kristin said mix it up and flavour it. This will also provide health benefits. A greater range of nutrients and antioxidants.

I think Alton Brown (sfw) is a genius at explaining cooking technique, history and theory for normal people. Granted his recipes aren't exactly paleo-Zone friendly, but he has awesome props.

His books and DVDs are available all over the internets. Google will show you the way.

I can see where those meals can get a little old. For breakfast I like to have 3/4 c or 183 g. 2% cottage cheese, 3/4c or 94g frozen mixed berries topped with 1 tbsp. of slivered almonds and one packet of splenda (I like it sweet!) It's very tasty and you feel like your splurging! I usually do some sort of a sandwich at lunch. Sara Lee makes a great low carb bread and dinner is usually some sort of lean meat and veggies. I actually have some pretty good recipes for dinner ie: fish or chicken tacos, taco salad, turkey burgers, chicken parmesan, stir fry. Let me know if you are interested in any and I will post it. Good luck!

I typically eat a 3 block meal so you may need to add accordingly if you do 4 or 5 blocks. For stir fry I use 4.5 oz. shrimp or 4 oz. chicken (both weighed raw). 5 asparagus cut into 1" pieces, 70 grms sliced red or green pepper, 91 g. broccoli, 112 g yellow and/or green squash, 56 g of sliced onion and 55 g. snap peas. Saute it up in 1 tsp. olive oil and Pam olive oil spray. when just about done add 2 tbsp. soy sauce, 1 tbsp. rice vinegar and 1 tsp. sesame oil. If I'm using shrimp I add that right before the sauce since it tends to cook very fast. This is awesome!
Dijon Chicken: 4 oz. raw chicken, 1tbsp. flour, salt, pepper, 1/2 tbsp. olive oil, olive oil cook spray, 1/4 c. chicken broth, 1 diced garlic clove, 1 tbsp. dijon mustard, 1/2 can sliced mushrooms, drained and dried thyme. pound chicken flat and coat both sides w/ the flour, salt and pepper mixture. spray skillet w/ pam and add olive oil to skillet. cook chicken to done, remove and keep warm. add broth to skillet, heat to boiling, stir in mustard and mushrooms. cook 2-3 minutes until thickened. Poor over chicken and sprinkle with dried thyme. serve with steamed broccoli ( 2 cups/182 g.) for a 3 block I still need 6 more grams of carbs which I usually make up with some fruit for dessert.
I'll add more recipes later today!
