I don't know if you are looking for feedback; if you aren't feel free to ignore this post.

If you are:  it looks pretty good in general, but:

1.  Sweet potatoes are a starchy crop substantially modified by agriculture, and thus not paleo.

2.  Same with Quinoa.

3.  I'd eat whole eggs rather than egg whites.  If you are worried about omega 3:6 fatty acid balance, choose pastured or organic omega 3 eggs.

The rest of it looks very good.

No, I appreciate the feedback a lot; so thank you. I actually did come to realize this week that my quinoa is not going to be on my next shopping list. Bummed but that's why I'm here.. So zero tubers??? Yams, sweet taters, everything? What about beets? I destroy beets like two at a time. Also, If I'm getting the majority of my protein from eggs should I not worry about bad cholesterol?? That's why I've been doing the 3 whites with one whole...

Today I made an awesome meal for myself that fed me all day. I'm going to put the recipe up in better detail soon; here goes:

*note: all the veggies I use are certified organic from JRorganics Farm*
------------------------------------------------------
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO MAKE THIS MEAL IN ONE POT!!

1lb of grass fed sirloin ground beef with sauteed with onions
Organic no-salt seasoning/fresh pepper/ a pinch of seasalt

Brown the beef add the spices and then I use a cheese-grater to add two summer squashes; one round ball squash and one goldbar squash

The squash will create a lot of water at the bottom of your pot. This is perfect because the last step is cracking two grass fed organic duck eggs on top, haphazardly and then you cover the pot

The steam is going to poach the eggs to a soft gooey "soft boiled" egg texture.

Here's what it looks like:
