    Hey, guys! I'm not really sure if these count as "performance eating," but I figured it'd be a good place to start. I recently have come up with a couple of recipes, both by myself and by mixing and modifying, that I thought some people out there may find delicious.

    Tuna Black Bean Salad

    2 std. cans of white albacore in wateR (I think 6oz?)
    1 can black beans, drained and rinsed (Full Circle is good)
    1 can regular Rotel

    ~1/4 cup light mayo
    1/4 tsp chili powder
    ~1/4 tsp red pepper flake (I eyeballed this more than anything)
    A few dashes of Tobasco's pepper sauce

    Cracked black pepper (to taste)
    Kosher or Sea salt (to taste)
    *******
    Mix the tuna, beans, and Rotel together in a large bowl until pretty evenly distributed. Then, mix mayo, chili powder, red pepper flake, and Tobasco in a separate bowl until it's an even mixture. Mix the mayo and stuff into the tuna/beans/Rotel and stir until it gets that even tuna salad consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    I know it doesn't sound very good, and it doesn't really even look very good, but on a sandwich or crackers, it's delicious! Whole Grain bread really sets it off for some reason. icon_smile.gif

    Sour Cream Veggie Sautee

    This one was totally off the hip, and I just landed it tonight. It's still kind of a WIP, but you get the idea.

    1/3 cucumber, sliced (cut into circles, then cut circles in half)
    1/2 green pepper
    1/3 diced tomato
    1-1.5 tbsp light sour cream
    cracked black pepper
    Kosher or sea salt
    Grapeseed oil
    *****
    Pour a bit of grapeseed oil into a sauce pan or skillet and heat until the oil is viscous. Slice up your cucumbers, green pepper, and tomatoes into small enough pieces for easy cooking (best judgement). When the oil is hot, throw in the cucumbers and green peppers and stir often until brown. Then, add the sour cream and tomatoes. Stir until it's an even, creamy consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste. I also added a bit of Tobasco to this just for a bit of kick.

    Throw the mixture into a bowl, toast a couple of thin slices of French alpine bread (unbuttered, or buttered with whipped, unsalted butter). I found that if you spread the mixture on the bread, it's really delicious!


    I'm not really much of a cook, so I was pretty impressed with myself with these! Anyone else have any favorite recipes? I really like these because besides the mayo and sour cream, both recipes are pretty much nothing but veggies, lean protein, and spices. Mmmm! icon_smile.gif

    Enjoy!

    These actually don't sound too bad.

    Okay, you have to pinky-swear PROMISE not to make fun of me for the source of this one. icon_lol.gif I often make a pork tenderloin when just the idea of another chicken breast makes me want to hurl.

    Usually it's a glaze of rosemary, garlic, honey and mustard, but I stumbled on this recipe online. Made it for Sunday dinner and I'm having the leftovers right this very minute.

    Yum!

    They should. The same as they should have a forum for camping and hiking (my ongoing gripe).
