Lets say you could eat any food you want... (Money is not a concern. Time is not a concern.) What would you want your typical daily menu to look like?
Breakfast: Sea Buckthorn and ikura. Egg L'Arpege.
Lunch: Camas root, roasted sweet plantain, and duck breast.
Snack: Escargot cooked with bone marrow with a topping of fresh pesto. Seaweed snacks.
Dinner: Chanterelles, salicornia, and reindeer tartare. A side of raw marinated liver.
Dessert: Honeysuckle and mastic panna cotta
Hey, you asked for perfect...a typical day is less delicious :( But I eat this kind of food whenever I can!!!
Breakfast grassfed steak and eggs with hollandaise sauce, with either coffee or mint green tea (of course if they were paleo, I would add southern home made biscuits with butter and jam)
Lunch Sausage Bacon Shrimp Summer Squash Casserole http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=1588104#ratings with some spring melon on the side if I wasn't worried about carbs
Snacks a pat of Lurpak butter, salmon avocado and cream cheese wrapped in nori, more dark chocolate
Dinner lobster tails with melted ghee, sauteed scallops, veggies sauteed in butter with greek seasoning and two hunks of Cocolove 77% dark chocolate for dessert. -OR- a pig pickin (google it) with fennel slaw, deviled eggs, watermelon and the aforementioned chocolate.
If money isn't an issue then I'm going big and won't cook or design my perfect menu, I will let Thomas Keller, Grant Achatz, and Rene Redzepi do it for me - of course they get to do all the work + dishes, in addition to the planning :) I dream of The French Laundry and Noma...was lucky enough to have the full menu at Alinia two years ago. I literally burst into tears over my 2nd course it was so beautiful and amazing. Yes, food dork am I.
In the real world and not my fantasy, I love food and do a damn fine job in my kitchen, a surprise day of secret tastiness and delights is what I want. And maybe I'll help with dishes :)
Breakfast: bacon, eggs, avocado, garlic mushrooms and wilted english spinach Lunch: Thai beef salad (beef strips, garlic, red onion, chilli, lemongrass, coriander, red pepper, mixed lettuce leaves) Arvo snack: red apple and roasted cashews or raw macadamia nuts (yum) Dinner: crispy skinned Atlantic salmon/ or steak/ or lamb (or insert any other nicely cooked and spiced piece of meat) with steamed broccoli, squash, carrot , green beans.
Breakfast: grass-fed steak and eggs, maybe with some sausage and decaf iced coffee
Lunch: grass-fed meatza topped with burrata, mushrooms, red onions, kalamata olives
Dinner: Grass-fed prime rib, sauteed fresh organic spinach with garlic and grass-fed butter
This is a pretty typical day for me anyway (minus the prime rib which I am quite sure I can't afford!)
It would pretty much be the same as now, except I might have a real bison steak instead of the ground stuff all the time. And, I might have a bit of fresh salmon when its in season, for breakfast instead of some extra protein powder. I would eat more macadamia nuts, of course! And, maybe a whole bottle of resveratrol. Here's my typical day: Breakfast: eggs, bacon, greens, protein powder, coffee with cream. Lunch: meat, veggies, nuts, coconut, green tea. Dinner: meat, veggies, olives, decaf coffee with cream.
breakfast- bacon strips, cheddar omelet maybe some muffins :D
snack- a cookie and an iced coffee
snack 2- salt and vinegar chips
dinner- steak or chinese take away, maybe a burger and mcdonalds fries :3
late night snack- grilled cheddar sandwich.
