Recipe Sticky

Postby Koovacs » Mon Apr 16, 2007 12:01 pm

This topic has probably been brought up several times, but I would just love having a sticky where everybody could share their favorit healthy recipes, be it breakfast, lunch, dinner, or mabye just a fancy snack.

I'm sure there are some great cooks and recipes in here that we could all benefit from.

Barbecued pork (must be full of fat to taste good !) with a large portion of french fries , dressed with 2 eggs , some garlic cloves , and copiously snowed with parmesan when it's ready.

Salt and paper after taste.

Its a delicious meal.

chili con carne that lasts me an entire week!

3lb extra lean ground beef
2 large sweet onions.
4 Italian tomatoes
4 regular tomatoes
1 can of red kidney beans
1 can of mixed beans
2 large carrots. - optional
1/2 clove of garlic
1 large red bell pepper - optional
1 green chili pepper
1 red chili pepper
2 tbl spoons cumin
2 tbl spoons crashed chili peppers
2 cans of tomato paste ( we get real small cans here)
1 large can of tomatoes sauce
2 tbl spoon of extra virgin olive oil

My secret ingredients (optional but add great flavor)
1/2 cup of dark beer (stout)
2 squares of 85% dark chocolate (graded)

Chop tomatoes, onions, bell pepper and carrots (I like large slices)
Finely chop chili peppers and garlic.

in a large pan add 2 tbl spoons of olive oil and add garlic and chili peppers
wait until they sizzle then add 3lb of ground beef. Its important to get extra lean beef otherwise you'll need to drain the fat.
Once the meat is starting to brown nicely and 1/2 of beer and let it cook for a while on a medium heat. Add chopped onions and carrots; keep stirring the chili so the meat is nicely separated.
You can drain the beer now or let it cook with it for a while longer.. i drain it.
O.K time to add chopped tomatoes, crashed chili peppers and cumin, and chocolate mixed it well and cook for a few more min
Add tomato paste and sauce and mix well. You probably want to lower the heat to low now. Finally add the beans and stir. Let it cook on low for a some time, stir now and then.

I second the notion of making this a sticky.

My favorite recipe is:

1 lb. of ground beef
1 diced Onion
1 chopped Broccoli head
2 chopped Carrots
2 minced Garlic Cloves
1 chopped garlic clove
2 Tblspns. of Olive Oil
1/2 lb. of shrimp
Your favorite seasonings

1. Sautee your minced garlic until brown in olive oil
2. Add beef and seasonings, turn up heat (stir occasionally)
3. Stir fry onions, broccoli, carrots, chopped garlic and shrimp in olive oil
4. When both are cooked to your liking, top the beef with the stir fry and put over a plate full of spinache. Eat with a wheat tortilla wrap...maybe a little pasta.

homemade peanut butter protein bars

I got this from another forum....they are great:

2 cups natural peanut butter
16 tsp honey, you can add however much you like
3 scoops of whey, again you can add more if you like
2 cups dry oats
olive oil or flax if you like for extra calories

Heat the PB and honey till it's a little runny, mix the other ingredients in and then pack it into a brownie tray and refrigerate utnil it's hard enough to cut into bars.

6 bars equals:
933 calories per bar
44g protein
71g of carbs

another p-nut butter treat:

1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 scoop whey protein
1/4 cup crushed walnuts
1/2 banana
dash of honey
pinch of cinnamon

Heat the peanut butter on the stovetop until runny, add the honey, mix in the remainder of the ingredients. Mash everything together. Place on wax paper and refridgerate or freeze. I rolled into six individual balls and froze these guys for about 2 hours. They're tasty and filling and they tide me over between meals. Macros to follow.

-3 lbs. ground beef, browned
-3 cups rice
-1 can black beans
-3 peppers of your choice (bell peppers, i used green, yellow and orange)
-1 small yellow onion
-1 pack of burrito seasoning (2 could be used in a batch this large)
-1 pack of shredded cheese
-two 8 packs of tortillias (large)

brown the ground beef, cook the rice, cut up the veggies, toss everything into the vat of rice and stirr up.

this made enough for me to eat 2 decent sized burritos for lunch every day of the week. easy to do, and will keep long.

FYI - i made the vat of goodness, then made all the burritos and store them in the freezer in a sandwhich baggie. take them and toss in the microwave at lunch time (or whenever you're hungry).

Protein brownies:

*1 small (1 pound) jar of all-natural peanut butter
*6 heaping Tbsp of ground flax seed
*2 heaping Tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
*3 scoops of protein powder (I use a stevia-sweetened chocolate whey-casein blend, but you can really "pick your poison" here)

*Combine in mixing bowl and mash together by hand
*Spread in container (I use a long-ish tupperware)
*Place in freezer over night
*Take out next morning, slice to desired size (slightly seperating the brownies post-slicing will help them to firm up even better)

Make sure you have something to drink on hand, as these are kind of "thick" ;)
