A typical day of meals for The Odells

When I start to share with people about these massive diet changes I’ve made in the past 6 months, everyone wants to know what a typical day of breakfast, lunch and dinner looks like.  Everyone wants to know “How can you feel satisfied and full without any bread?” or “What is good fat and how much of it do you eat?”.

One word I always like to cook by … SIMPLE.  We like to keep it simple, mixing our favorite foods and flavors with love and intention.

Without further ado, let’s have a look …

— Examples of Breakfast

  • Steak/Bacon and eggs, everything cooked in butter
  • 3 egg omelet, filled with veggies and cheese
  • Oats fermented overnight in water and yogurt, cooked/mixed with butter, cream and dash of honey in the morning (This is usually a Jono dish, as I’m trying to omit grains as much as possible.)

— Lunch

  • Steak and blue cheese salad with veggies and homemade dressing
  • Crustless quiche with spinach, eggs, fried onion and cheese
  • Big veggie bake, cooked in butter and the stock + fat saved from chicken roast, sprinkled with grated cheese

— Dinner

  • Baked salmon fillet with dijon mustard, side of broccoli bathed in butter
  • Chicken roast with pumpkin, bathed in butter
  • Beef/lamb/pork with fried onion and cabbage

— Dessert

  • Berries and cream
  • Fried bananas with honey and cream
  • Dark chocolate, at least 85% cocoa

— Snacks

  • Kefir
  • Apple with almond butter
  • Nuts and cheese
  • Fruit, mainly berries

— 2 other ways I get good fat into my daily diet

  • Cod Liver Oil – 1 tsp / day
  • Coconut Oil – 1-2 tbsp / day

See … eating well is actually really fun and yummy!  No deprivation.  No hunger.  Yes, you do get those occasional cravings for toast and cookies, and you do give in to those cravings every so often (and sometimes suffer the consequences of indigestion or what have you), but for the most part, you can usually find a very good and whole option that will give health to your body and leave you feeling light and satisfied.

  1. I’ll be right over for….breakfast, lunch AND dinner!! I can personally attest to Lisa’s great cooking! 🙂

  2. Be careful about consuming too much coconut oil when you first start taking it. It’s very rich and, too much too soon, can upset your stomach. I know…!
