sounds pretty similar to what I'd like to do. I just need more meal ideas including ground beef etc. You slice the sweet potato in the bacon grease right?

Yep, cube it and put creole seasoning on it.

For ground beef, my wife and I make a lot of chili. Its pretty healthy, tastes delicious, is easy to make in quantity, and stores well. I end up eating it for like 7 or 8 lunches / dinners in a row sometimes lol. We use ground turkey to make a white chili too.

I'll ask my wife. I know she uses 4lb of Ground Beef, a large can of stewed tomatoes, 2 cans of kidney beans, 2 whole onions chopped up, 2 whole green peppers chopped up, a few cloves of garlic, a can of tomato sauce, a carroll shelby chili packet and half of a generic chili packet.

First you brown the meat and then add the rest of the stuff in and simmer until it tastes good lol.

I garnish it with chopped onions, hot sauce, sour cream and cheese..... damnit, now I'm hungry.

That's a great spread, but based on strict Paleo a large majority of that would be cut out. That's the main reason why I shunned it. I can manage my eating without going extreme. If the g/f wants to do it, that's on her.

Yeah, strict paleo would be no go on the wrap, the cheese, the oats, and the slice of bread.

I'll say this... Most of, if not all, the crossfit facilities have some paleo pompous idealist on hand as a nutritionist for it's members.

lol that's so weird. Why do they think this workout and that nutrition plan have to go hand in hand?

so weird. I read that post about what that dude ate and he said something like "I don't eat chicken. It's a bird, and birds are the same as rats to me"

Its really weird, the people that are really into it are super dogmatic. If CF headquarters says something, it must be true. They'd all ship out to jonestowne is "coach" said to. "Coach" or greg glassman if the middle age, overweight guy in that video that you posted. He is one that started marketing CF.

so weird. I read that post about what that dude ate and he said something like "I don't eat chicken. It's a bird, and birds are the same as rats to me" Fvcking jacka55.

Simply put it's because eating that way helps them perform CrossFit better. If you did a certain sport and you knew doing something a specific way would make you better at that sport wouldn't you do it? Bodybuilders get just as dogmatic with their eating plan weeks before a competition because they know that style of eating will give them them the most "pop".

CrossFit HQ doesn't push the Paleo Diet either. They preach about the zone diet. They actually got rid of Robb Wolf (Paleo Guru) because they accused him of pushing Paleo instead of the Zone diet.
