Default The Excellent Healthy Recipe Thread

It looks like there's A LOT of us that are striving to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle so why not start a thread that is filled with all of the delicious and HEALTHY recipes that everyone has found?


I'll start it off with my normal breakfast:

Three brown organic eggs, scrambled, very very light olive oil in the pan
Diced fresh green pepper
Diced fresh jalapeno
Diced fresh onion
Slice up whatever breakfast meat I have ready to go to add (No bacon )

Pour on plate and sprinkle with some ground chipotle pepper.

Nothing beats the classic chicken breast, steamed veggies, and brown rice.

My wife bought a Weight Watchers cookbook. Most everything has been tasty even for me that is not dieting. She has lost 30lbs since the first of the year as is still dropping, she does count her points though.

Thank you to the people that are actually contributing.

There's a lot of people on here that are doing the right thing and trying to lose weight, eat healthier and live a more active lifestyle. This thread is to share ideas on good recipes to help achieve that goal.

There's no reason to be a smartass and post about chili dogs and chocolate.

This was a really good one, but we added Sriracha

Cooking light magazine puts out an annual cookbook with that years recipes. I have a couple of the years and have made dozens of the recipes. So far we've only come across one that I would never make again.

X2 on cooking light magazine. My wife has a subscription so we are always making stuff out of it and we also agree that there have only been a couple that weren't very good, in our opinion. Although, one slight complaint on Cooking Light recipes is that sometimes they call for some goofy ingredients that are hard to find and when you do, they are expensive.

Apple jacks for breakfast. It has apple in the name so it has to be healthy right. Plus the box is green.

What does a brown egg taste like? Sounds rotten to me...unless you are taking about the shell, then I would say the shell color has nothing to do with the heathlyness or nonhealthyness of the egg.

I have a Kirkland weight loss milkshake for breakfast and lunch and usually fish or just veggies and I've lost 8 lbs since February. Don't know what else to do.

I am fortunate to like almost every vegetable I have ever eaten. This includes damn near everything out of the oceans and lakes.
So my healthy meals usually are light oils, low to no salt, high vegtable to meat dishes. My main problem is I can eat too much lol

Also I would like to say because of friends like Kerry I have ventured into trying vegetarian dishes and attempting to follow her lead in staying away from processed foods. It is very difficult with a wife and kids who fight and shut you down though

A lot better. http://www.motherearthnews.com/homes...#axzz2RFFVnoyi It's not shell color but free range vs. cage raised. Free range chickens eat a lot of bugs and other variety that makes their eggs a lot tastier. Just crack one next to a white store egg, the yolk on the store egg is super pale in comparison.

Not a full recipe, but we roast kale about once a week. It's really good. Remove the super thick, tough stems (i.e. those as thick as your pinky), cut into bite size pieces (they shrink a bit), drizzle with some olive oil and salt, and then roast in an oven at 400* for probably 8 minutes. Keep an eye on it - once it starts to brown up it's ready, and if you don't catch it browning and take it out it will burn pretty quickly. Kale is a super dense green and when cooked like this it gets crunchy with really good flavor. Great substitute for potato chips as a side to burgers. Probably take you a try or two to master it but it's cheap.

From my understanding the quickest way to loose weight(among other things) is to start smoking crack or meth. Why don't you give it a shot and get back to us on that one.
