In 10 minutes you could have made a 2 minute salad!

Sorry Mark, but two minute salad my...

Considering the prep time, that'd probably come out to an hour salad, minimum. Chopping and washing all of those veggies, prepping and cooking the chicken, making the dressing... definitely not a two minute salad. Even if you did a ton of prep at once and averaged the total time, I'm still banking on about a 10 minute salad. OP had an, albeit bland and non-paleo, meal with total time of about 5 minutes.

Re: 10 minute meals

Ok, it was a swing and a miss the first time around. Here goes the second try:

Prep:

-Turned on the stove
-Open can of Kroger value french sliced green beans and put 1 serving in strainer
-Got out tomato, 50/50 mix of spring mix and baby spinach, 1 large tomato, 5 eggs, and a bag of cheese
-Cracked eggs and poured the whites into a small bowl
-Sliced up the tomato
-Put tomato, 50/50 mix, 1/8 cup of cheese, into a bowl.

Cooking:

-Put one serving of green beans into pan
-Throw the egg whites on top
-Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on med. stirring occasionally
-Place on top of salad
-Salt and pepper to taste
-Enjoy!

Calories: 288
-from fat: 43
Total fat: 4g
Carbs: 17.5g (a little more Paleo?)
Protein: 44g

Total time: 9 min. 33 sec.

I thoroughly enjoyed this salad. I'm going to start posting pictures. What do y'all think? The recipes posted are great, I'm going to give one or two a whirl tomorrow. These might not be the greatest in the world, but they aren't too bad for you. They will suffice when I'm late for class(or one of y'all is late for the office), and while this one was a little bit more expensive it cost just under $3.

Re: 10 minute meals

i have a quick method that yields various tasty dinners

1. start heating up wok
2. cut up meat (beef, chicken, pork.. whatever) and vegetables (assorted)
3. by this stage wok should be really hot - put in meat, brown it
4. put in vegetables
5. put in some sauce if you want (soy, fish sauce, sweet chilli)
6. eat.

so many different combos you can have and really quick

He does mention in the video that there is "alittle bit of preparation that goes before it (making the salad)." So if you prepare the veggies beforehand, like he does, then it's a two minute salad. But if you don't have them prepared, then it will take some time, like you said.

Re: 10 minute meals

- Take lots of baby spinach, stick in frying pan (no need for fat if you have teflon, otherwise add preferred fat source)
- Heat until slightly wilted (only slightly)
- Add three eggs, mush around with spinach until scrambled
- Add feta cheese (or preferred cheese choice)
- Eat

Your Salad-fu is weak youngling. I make salads all the time and I can make a better salad than Marks in roughly 4 minutes.

The highlighted are not Paleo, I think you may be a bit confused regarding Paleo, Paleo is not all about low carb. In my earlier post I was just stating that I do not eat 96 carbs in a whole day let alone one meal.

Re: 10 minute meals

Pound out some chicken,
DUST with flour (or not)
quickly pan fry, add a tsp of butter/olive oil (butter is better tasting), 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/4 cup white wine, let it simmer for a bit, and you have basic chicken piccata..
Serve with steamed broccoli

i know, won't pass everyone's paleo requirements, but its delicious and nutritious

....can i ask why "sliced green beans" aren't considered paleo
