Okay, so I have been lifting and doing heavy cardio in a circuit training style for about 8 months. I have seriously modified my lifestyle and have lost about 60 lbs over this time frame from eating very clean and being very health conscious.
Here is the question I have. I am just sick of preparing different meals. I no longer eat for pleasure but for nourishment and truly just don't care what I eat as long as it gets me closer to the shredded physique I am on the brink of acheiving. I am seriously considering just eating oven roasted chicken breast and broc**** for every meal (with the exception of maybe some extra carbs like fruit for breakfast and pre-workout and a whey protein shake post-workout) just for the ease of preparation and to be honest I just love the combo. Super lean meat, and probably the most awesome veggie.
Please give me your input. I know that there is nothing unhealthy about the combination itself but is there anything wrong with making my diet so monotonous?
Thanks for your help!

I make the chicken better by adding garden salsa. Mix up the fats between natty peanut butter, avocado(mixed w/garden salsa and spread on chicken), or some kind of nuts.
I don't know how healthy it is nutrient wise but afaik it's healthy.

Will probably lead to a lack of various vitamins and minerals which are vital not only for your health and wellbeing, but also for achieving your bodybuilding/ fitness goals (e.g. zinc for supporting testosterone, Vitamin C for recovery, etc.) I could also see it increasing the liklihood of you to cheat, simply due to the monotonous nature and lack of variety in such a diet.
Plus, your farts are gonna absolutely reek...Anorexia dragged me to rock-bottom; watch me build myself back up...

On topic: Yeah I eat chicken and broc**** 3-5 times a week, it's easy and quick for dinner. I make up for this by eating smaller meals and snacks during the day like tuna, other vegetables, fruits, whey protein, healthy fats..etc + a cup or two of green tea.
But there's a difference between having chicken and broc**** for every meal and having it for one meal every day. I would advise the latter. It's just as easy to prepare a salad with fruits or vegetables, cook white fish, cook pasta, make a tuna sandwich, eat healthy fats..etc as it is to cook chicken and broc**** every night. You might be over doing it if you're eating that for every meal, that's anywhere from that combo 3-5+ times a day every day.. Say it out loud. I love the combo but blah..
