Let's get cooking!


#1

This is a call out to all the T-men in this forum to toss up some recipies, foods, or fixin's they enjoy. I know there's got to be a time in your diets when you just don't know what to get your required nutrition from, so this should give us all some options. I'd really like everyone to add in thier own little meals/receipies! (Specifically a carb + protein or a fat + protein meal.)

put ranch dressing and dales sauce in a tupperware dish with lid with chicken breasts. poke holes in the chicken. shake well all day long(off and on, not really all day). that night cook on the george foreman. best chicken youll ever taste.

Get yourself a crockpot. It's the best way to cook stew, pot roast and ribs among other meals. I use it a few times a week. You put everything in the crockpot in the morning and let it cook all day. It comes out tender and tasty.

I also cook my own version of chili, various baked chicken meals, shepherd's pie, soft tacos, fajitas, steak and burgers. I always prepare some sort of vegetable on the side whether it's sweet potatoes, mashed or baked potatoes, brocolli or frozen veggies.

I cooked this recipe last night - a variation from a recipe found on www.numitea.com. EASILY the best salmon recipe I've ever had. I could not stop shoveling fish into my mouth last night. :slightly_smiling:

1 lb. salmon fillet,
2 tbsp. soy sauce,
4 tbsp. sherry,
2 bags green tea,
1/2 cup water,
1/2 tsp. cornstarch,
3 tbsp. sesame seeds.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes


Slice salmon into small strips. Place in frying pan and marinate for 10 minutes in soy sauce and sherry mixture. Simmer over moderate heat until sauce is absorbed. In mug, pour boiling water over tea bags and steep 5 minutes. Squeeze out tea bags and stir in cornstarch. Pour tea mixture over salmon and cook another 5 minutes or until sauce slightly thickens. Roast sesame seeds in dry frying pan over low heat until seeds begin to jump, no more than 5 minutes. Mix seeds into salmon and sauce. Serve alone or with bread or Numi's Nutty Jasmine Rice. Makes 4 servings. Good Health!

I celebrated the end of my exams last night by preparing a bitchin' meal for myself and a couple friends. Grilled salmon filets with sautaed (I know that isn't spelled right} rappini and mushrooms and a red wine sauce. The best meal I've ever made, if I do say so myself.

chicken nuggets-
mix egg whites, a little tabasco sauce, and a little garlic powder in a small dish. let it sit for a little bit to take up all of the flavor. then mix 1/2 cup parmesan cheese along with some other spices (red pepper, salt, whatever) and put that in a zip lock baggy. cut chicken breasts up into cubes, roll them in the eggwhite/tabasco, and toss em into the bag of spices. shake them around a little bit to cover, and throw into the oven. I don't know, around 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. They are damn good. Let's hear some more.. what do you guys cook on the grill? How about some tasty shake recipes?

Fish Taco's.
Grab some salmon, mince it up, through a little garlic flavoring or paprika on...cook for about 15-20 mins...add TBSP bacon bits, two slices of whatever cheese you like...let cheese melt over the minced salmon...when done, scoop salmon into MANNY's FAT FREE TORTILLIAS and enjoy.
PS, the tortillas (MANNYS) are made of powdered egg whites.
Two tortillas: 80kcal, 11CHO, 9PRO, 0FAT...a perfect macronutrient flux mix

This is an answer to the Tuna question: Take a can of tuna or salmon (My choice: Bumble Bee Premium Quality Pink Salmon) and add a tablespoon or so of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Any other level of olive oil will not give you the taste you're looking for..). Mix. Done!
The result is a very high protein/low fat meal that tastes great and can be eaten at any time. Sometimes I will add a small can of whole kernel corn to get some good carbs in there.....
