Sunday Food Prep is a weekly post of Metabolic Typing Diet inspired recipes to feed me and my honey!  Generally, it is meant to feed us for a few days, but it hasn’t quite worked out that way… 2.5  days tops.  I’m sure today’s menu will be the same,  probably  just feed us one more time.  This cooking business is really starting to get stressful, I’m so glad I ordered the Paleo Comforts Food cook book to help me with ideas! By the way, last weeks dish,  Chicken Adobo with Baby Potatoes & Banana Side was a hit.

Some back story for today’s menu choice: I was really tired to go to the grocery store, reconciling that I may not cook, but earlier I had asked my BF what he wanted for dinner and he said steak.  Long story short, I woke up from a nap to find out he washed my car– the man wants steak– HE GETS STEAK!

Just a quick reminder of the macronutrient ratios for the Metabolic Typing Types:

Protein Type: 70% proteins & fats (40/30) / 30% carbohydrates

Carbohydrate Type: 60% carbohydrates / 40% proteins & fats (25/15)

Mix-Type: 50% carbohydrates / 50% proteins & fats (30/20)

*In General: Protein Types should avoid Gluten, Protein & Mix-Types should have high fiber, low-to-medium starch carbs, and sprouted grains.

*There is no calorie counting in the Metabolic Typing Diet. Reason being, if you eat for your body type, your body will know when to stop.  No over-eating.  No cravings.  No depriving.

Go buy The Metabolic Typing Diet book and take the test to find out what you are!

Put it together:

The salad: place a bed of greens on plate, add sliced tomatoes, jicama, corn, avocado, mango, and black beans

Steak: rub the steak with sea salt, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and coconut oil then lay on a grill or grill like pan to briefly sear each side, we prefer medium-rare, but it’s your call

Dressing: squeeze 2 oranges and 1 lime in a bowl, add 1 tbs spoon maple syrup, splash of rice vinegar, fresh pepper and stir– add sea salt if you wish

Spoon dressing over food on plate to finish and enjoy!

Now learn  what happens to your food after you swallow it, and why I make sure I only eat low to medium starch carbohydrates after lunch!
