So what do you guys like to make for some healthy meals? I'm sick of these fast food threads.
Make a light chicken stock and add vegetables you'd find in a stir fry. I like tofu, broccoli, baby corn, onion, carrot, snow peas, bell pepper, red chili flakes, etc.
I bake up a whole bunch of chicken breasts all at once then stuck then in the fridge to use them in salad or with brown rice and sautéed vegetables all throughout the week. This is the staple of my diet and eat these about 4 or 5 days out if the week. I also drink a smoothie everyday and eat plenty of nuts. I can make a lentil, black bean and red pepper soup that has a bunch of vegetables in it and a decent amount of protein. I broil fish for a fancier meal here and there, something like sockeye salmon or rockfish, or sole fish tacos with pico de gallo and guacamole. Turkey is also good for stuff. I snack on apples, grapes, celery and carrots, nuts, or a small salad. And drink lots if water. For sweets I go with 70% dark chocolate.
No dairy or red meat.
1. In a Pyrex baking dish, everything coated in extra virgin olive oil. Oven set to 350° F. Cook it for about 30 minutes, then take it out and slice it up really thin. Then bake it for 15 more minutes.
2. Not at the moment, but I've been meaning to look into some recipes to spruce up hard boiled eggs. I also want to figure out how to add eggs to salad and rice.
I forgot to mention the seadpning for the chicken. I season before I start cooking when the breasts are whole, so I cover them pretty heavily with seasoning. Black pepper, sea salt, cilantro, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, mace, rosemarry, whatever.
