I currently eat 4 meals but I'm about to bump up to 5 because I want to see if it helps me gain some strength in the gym (and maybe a tad more padding on my cheekbones).
Here's a typical Paleo day for me:
Jog 1 mile with my BTF (Boston Terrier Forever).
Drink large cup green tea
*1 banana *small fist of blueberries *fistful of pecans *local honey for dipping (sometimes)
*3 strips of pasteurized local pork bacon *2 local eggs scrambled in bacon grease *sea salt *turmeric
*1/4 lb ground beef (local grass fed) *2 local eggs scrambled in beef tallow *sea salt *varied herbs/spices
*1/4 lb ground beef again (cooked earlier to yield grease for eggs in prior meal) *varied herbs/spices *sea salt *1 whole Hass Avocado *lemon juice
*Well-water with every meal
Here's what I'm adding:
*1 very large sweet potato (local), chopped into french fries and fried in coconut oil.
It seems to me I am getting globs of fat with every meal but if I could afford it, I'd probably buy more fruits to snack on between meals. If I really wanted to push my strength, I'd load up on slow-burning carbs. Overall, I figure this will be a cheap way to eat more.
My net gain for the week is is about 4400 calories (1050 calories from 7 sweet potatoes plus 3,360 calories from coconut oil). Total cost is about $14 on top of my weekly grocery bill.
What foods would you add if you were looking for a cheap and easy extra meal for your Paleo Diet?
