Anabolic Diet Recipes

Here are some recipes I have been finding.
Yes I took them from another site. But it is a crime to not share knowledge right?

  1. Cold Spinach-Stuffed Beef Tenderloin. This recipe sounds delicious!
    �?� 3 1/2 lb beef tenderloin.

    �?� 6x garlic cloves, sliced
    �?� 2 tbsp oil
    �?� Salt and pepper
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Split tenderloin open down its entire length. Season generously inside and out. Spread spinach to cover inside surface. Top with roasted peppers and garlic. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Reform tenderloin and tie every 3 inches with butchers twine, to hold in the filling.
    In a large saute pan heat oil and sear meat on all sides. Roast on a rack in a roasting pan for 15 to 20 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 120 to 125 degrees F for rare (for medium-rare, roast until temperature registers 135 to 140 degrees F). Remove and cool completely. Cut into desired serving slices.

  9. Spinach-Stuffed Chicken Breasts
    �?� 1 tb Butter
    �?� 4 oz Mushrooms; finely chopped
    �?� 1 pk Frozen chopped spinach. Thawed, squeezed dry (10-ounce).
    �?� 6 oz Cream cheese. Room temperature.
    �?� 1/2 c Chopped fresh chives or green onion tops.
    �?� 6 Chicken breast halves.
    �?� 6 tb Dijon mustard.
    Preheat oven to 450F. Melt butter in heavy medium skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Cool slightly. Blend spinach, cream cheese and chives in medium bowl. Mix in mushrooms; season with salt and pepper.
    Run fingers under skin of each chicken breast to loosen, creating pocket. Spread 1/6 of cheese mixture between skin and meat of each breast. Arrange chicken breasts on baking sheet. Spread 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard over each chicken breast. Bake chicken until golden brown and cooked through, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.

  10. Smoky & Spicy Chicken Breasts. 8 servings. You can switch out thighs for the breasts. 15 minutes to prepare, 40 minutes to cook.
    �?� 1/2 lb baked smoked ham, in one piece
    �?� 8 boneless chicken breast halves (6-7oz each, with skin intact)
    �?� Coarse salt and ground pepper to taste
    �?� 2 tsp ground coriander
    �?� 3 tbl spicy hot red or green jalapeno pepper jelly, or to taste
    �?� 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro (fresh coriander)
    �?� 2 jalapeno chiles, chopped
    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (200 C). Cut the smoked ham into narrow julienne strips about 1/�?? thick. Scatter the ham over the bottom of a baking dish large enough to hold the chicken in a single layer.
    Rinse the chicken breast halves and pat dry with paper towels. Season both sides of each piece with salt and pepper, then rub about 1/4 tsp of the ground coriander on the skin of each piece. Place the chicken pieces, skin sides up, on top of the ham. Roast, basting with the pan juices after the first 15 mins, until the skin is crisp, about 35 mins total. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over high heat, warm the jelly until it melts, about 45 seconds.
    Remove the chicken from the oven. Brush or spoon about 1 tsp of the jelly on top of the crisp skin of each chicken piece and return the chicken to the oven. Continue roasting until the skin is glazed and the juices run clear when the meat is pierced at the thickest point with a fork, about 5 mins longer.
    Serve the chicken directly from the baking dish. Garnish with cilantro and the chopped jalapenos.

And here is a list of foods to increase your variety.

Red Meat. The bulk of your diet should consist of red meat. Red meat has protein & fat, both needed in the Anabolic Diet. Most feel better with steak. But there�??s plenty to choose from.

  1. Beef. Chuck is economical & has 20% fat.
  2. Pork. I�??m not big a fan of Pork, however it�??s good source of protein & fat.
  3. Lamb. Tender & flavored. Very fatty meat.
  4. Ground. I love hamburgers. Chuck & beef contain good amounts of fat.
  5. Dried Meats. Beef jerky, Bresaola, �?�
  6. Bacon. American Bacon, Streaky Bacon, Fresh Bacon, Pancetta,�?�
  7. Sausages. Chorizo, Pepporini, Merguez, �?�
  8. Salami. Corned Beef, Baloney, Calabrese, Soppressata, �?�
  9. Ham. Ardennes Ham, Jambon de Bayonne, Prosciutto, Prosciutto di Parma, Jamon Serrano, Jamon Iberico, �?�

Poultry. White meats are less fatty than red meats. Eat white meats for variety, but keep in mind that you need animal fat on the Anabolic Diet. Go for the darker meat (thighs/legs) & eat the skin.
10. Chicken. I like whole chicken: eating everything up to the bones.
11. Turkey. Leaner than Chicken.
12. Duck. Wild ducks are very fat.
13. Goose. Less fatty than Duck, but fattier than Chicken.
14. Ground Chicken. Hamburgers from Ground Chicken are good for a change.
15. Ground Turkey.
16. Fowl. Good source of protein, but lean meat.
17. Pheasant. Same as fowl: good for protein, but low fat.

Fish. Fish are a good source of Omega 3. Omega 3 will help your testosterone levels & fat breakdown. I�??m not a big fish eater to be honest.
18. Anchovies. Rinse the salt of before using.
19. Carp.
20. Catfish.
21. Herring.
22. Mackerel.

35. Eggs. Omelets, Scrambled Eggs, Deviled Eggs, �?� Eat the yolk.
36. Italian Cheese. Mozzarella, Provolone, Taleggio, Parmesan, Pecorino, Romano, Gorgonzola, �?�

38. Swiss Cheese. Emmental, Gruyère, Raclette,�?�
39. Dutch Cheese. Gouda, Edam, �?�
40. Other cheese: Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Feta,�?�
41. Heavy Whipping Cream. Has close to 40% fat. Use it in your coffee, with your veggies or in your Post Workout Shake.

Fats. You�??ll get plenty of saturated fat from the Red Meat, Eggs & Cheese. Balance with Omega 3 & Omega 9 fats for even better results.
42. Fish Oil. Liquid form or caps, great source of omega 3.
43. Cod Liver Oil. Omega 3, vitamin A, vitamin D.
44. Flax oil. Great with salads.
45. Butter. I cook everything with olive oil. You can use butter for a change.
46. Argan Oil. North African oil, I use it with salads & omelets (Omega 6).

49. Cashew.
50. Hazelnuts.
51. Pecans.
52. Pine Nuts. Use them with Olive Oil for Pesto.

Damn girl… nice!

It is obvious you have too much time on your hands though and I still won’t let you see my avatar…

good post, i just wish it had the carb,protein, and fat data with it.

I do have too much time on my hands

AND I totally see your avatar.

Sorry about no macronutrient breakdown. Some of the recipes are listed in grams which really should help you out if you know how many grams of each you need.

Otherwise, this would be good starters for the induction phase.

Oh yeah… what color is it then?

Ah Ha! trick question- it’s black, therefore devoid of color. (note to self- don’t call people on the trick until they’ve been given an opportunity to answer…)

FAT people!

or people who want to lean out.

Your avatar is my new screensaver so everyone will know how cool I am. But only certain people can actually appreciate it, make ME even more cool.

i was under the assumption youre supposed to be eating 18xbodyweight on the AD, and its the carb and protein content which is vital to know.

This is a great post. Thanks for the info!

You do 18xBW if you are lean or where you want to be and doing maintenance cals.

If you want to lean out you do anywhere from 8 - 12 x BW depending on the duration and your goals.

From what I understand you wouldn’t want to hang at 8xBW for an extended period of time.

But you shouldn’t be going over the 30gs of carbs daily during your week. UNLESS you are lean and then you have some leeway upto 50gs.

That is from what I understand. I stay below 30gs during the week.

i am lean, every body fat measurement i got was off (too low) but i think im at 6-8% so i just do maintaience, maybe a couple hundred over since gaining weight wouldnt hurt but im not in a rush so making weight gains from muscle alone is more what im aiming for.

i stay below 30 grams anyway i thought i had to ,but even though you say theres some leeway i still want to stay low.

lol, i dont think i could do 8xBW for even a day without going into coma, nonetheless good post, im sure some of these recipes will be finding their way to my stomach if theres anything thatd throw my diet off i can just remove it, plain and simple. i definately could use the variety, i think i can only do bacon,eggs,and burgers for so long and theres only so many ways to fry an egg.

scrambled eggs

1 tablespoon Olive Oil
2 whole eggs
1 tablespoon lemon juice
(then anything you want)

but the lemon juice makes the eggs very fluffy

It goes really well with avocado, feta cheese and broccoli in the eggs.

Egg salad

6 boiled eggs
1/2 medium avocado
lemon juice
slivered almonds or walnut pieces

so good on bell pepper used like chips or mix in some chicken


ground pork
red pepper
chili flakes
green olives
butter lettuce
pepper jack cheese

brown the pork with the red pepper, onion, slided olives and chili flakes to taste.

drain on a paper towel

make the tacos by putting the cooked pork in a leaf of butter lettuce and topping with avocado and cheese. The lettuce acts as a taco shell

I actually like these better than regular corn tortilla tacos because I can taste the flavors of the meat and avocado better

WOW…I think I am starting to drool!!! I can’t believe I missed this before!!! So nice of you to share. This will help change up our “during the week” foods choices. Thanks bunches!!! Bren
