    so ive been on a good nutrition plan for a couple of months and im all out of ideas for healthy muscle building food. all that i can think of these days for breakfast is an omlet with spinache and cottage cheese.

    breakfast i like making omelets with red bell peppers (for vitamin c) and some other veggies. but i don't do that too often these days because i'm lazy and it takes too much time. So now i'll eat special K red and put some blueberries in.


    most the meals i eat are healthy, but one for dinner that sticks out that i really enjoy I stole from foodnetwork, is tuna with mango ginger salsa. Its good and very healthy icon_smile.gif

    hockeyjosh21 saidMy favorite healthy meal........i cant think of any at the moment...cuz your too hot babe!


    I love this answer. icon_smile.gif

    A breakfast idea (OK what I eat): take a cup measurement and cover the bottom with sunflowerseeds, then add a few spoonfuls of quinoa and the rest with oatmeal. cook in a pan with 2 cups of water. breakfast of this and a yoghurt and fruit.

    Supper (lunch here, but whatever)

    Chicken (legs, wings... anything with a bone). take the skin off and then cook in a sauce pan with peeled tomatoes (3 or 4), minced onion, minced garlic and cilantro (season). you can add potatoes if you like. Cooks in about 30 or 40 minutes. If you have no pots, serve with rice and half an avocado as salad.

    Tuna, raw beets and carrots, fresh pineapple, just to name a few - - - - this pertains to leaning out = especially after a big holiday dinner.

    Quinoa. I dated a competitive Bodybuilder years ago. He turned me on to it.
    There is more calcium and protein in a serving of quinoa than a quart of milk. For you dead flesh eaters, it has as much protein as dead animals.
    It's high in iron, magnesium and potassium.
    Plus it's bloody delicious.
    Cheers,
    Keith

    Quinoa has all the amino acids that the human body needs. You cook it like rice. It´s not quite as cheap as rice, but much cheaper than steak.

    a couple of teaspoons of olive oil, in a pan on medium heat

    a couple of gloves of minced garlic

    a coarsely chopped onion

    a bunch of sliced mushrooms

    a chopped summer squash

    a chopped zucchini

    sometimes some cut up green beans

    all sauteed until about half cooked then add

    two cans of unsalted diced tomatoes

    half a bag of Morningstar Crumbled soy protein

    and a fistful of fresh basil (if you like it).

    simmer for half an hour or so and serve with mulit grain or whole wheat pasta. it's also great over cooked barley or in an omelette.

    I keep a container of this in the fridge or freezer for when i need a quick meal.

    Caloric ratios:

    raw boneless skinless chicken breast 0% carbs, 10% fats, 90% protein

    uncooked quinoa 70% carbs, 15% fats, 15% protein

    I buy a lot of Kashi Go Lean products. Oatmeal, waffles, cereal. Healthy, quick, and no cooking skills required.

    Well, well, well, something from the animal killer himself. Shoot, kill, and slaughter any innocent animals lately?
    I don't know how reliable your info is. I got this from a pro Bodybuilder I dated, plus my trainer at the gym, and the nutrionist that comes to the house. They all say the same. I tend to go with fitness professionals.
    But thanks for your valued input. icon_wink.gif
    I'm sure you'll feel verified once you are devouring one of the animals you needlessly killed.
    Cheers,

    The information in Nutrition Data's database comes from the USDA's National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference and is supplemented by listings provided by restaurants and food manufacturers. The source for each individual food item is listed in the footnotes of that food's Nutrition Facts page. In addition to food composition data, Nutrition Data also provides a variety of proprietary tools to analyze and interpret that data. These interpretations represent Nutrition Data's opinion and are based on calculations derived from Daily Reference Values (DRVs), Reference Daily Intakes (RDIs), published research, and recommendations of the FDA.

    Quinoa has a better amino acid profile than most other grains, but like all grains, it is mostly just starch. I think people confuse having complete protein with having lots of protein.

    That must be it...I'm confused.
    How nice of you to point that out. But the health professionals that I directly deal with must be confused as well.
    But again, thank you. Too much "erroneous" info out there. icon_wink.gif

    No, no....not this time. I'm not going to get pulled into a "flame" war with this bloody tart. It's not the place for it.

    I like my breakfast a lot.

    Eggbeater scrambled with low fat cheese, turkey sausage patties, toast, orange/pineapple juice, apple sauce and coffee.

    MQ, the only one here being even the slightest bit incendiary is you. You posted some erroneous nutritional information, and I simply provided a correction and cited my source. Quinoa does contain complete protein, and at 15% protein (calorically), it has 50% more protein than wheat, which is only 10% protein. It can be described as a high-protein grain, but compared to meat, quinoa is a low-protein, high-carb food.

    LOL! But of course......another of my fan club.
    Well this has to be the last word of last words on this subject. Since "Above average intelligence" has come to play showing the same sourced info as the animal killer. That is how you described yourself in your profile is it not?
    But I digress...Quinoa is still my favourite health meal. And despite what 3 separate physical fitness professionals have told me, maybe I must bow to the "Above average intelligence" of Tweetle Dumb and Tweetle Dumber.

    Here is a quick Meal that I really enjoy evenings when I don't feel like a production.

    Quarter 4 Roma tomatoes and put in a small pot with a teaspoon of oil oil.
    Place a a fresh or frozen tilapia or other white fish on top of the tomatoes.
    Top with a 0.5 to 1.0 Cups of fresh Salsa.
    Heat on medium until the fish flakes apart.
    Add 2 handfuls of Fresh Spinach, and stir in until wilted.

    Makes a rockin' stew/soup. Filling and healthy.


    For breakfast try a boiling bag omelette's for easy clean up. A snake sized zip bag works great.

    Another hint. Use the best Cheeses you can find. Just like all fragrances the better the quality the less you need to use. Less than a half ounce of Maytag Blue Cheese can flavor an entire single serving salad.

    An aside. Quinoa is awesome. I love it a a side dish to soak up the juices of a thick rare fillet fresh of the grill.icon_cool.gif

    for flavouring use a hard cheese like parmesan. If you you use other stuff then you have to use so much that the sauce gets greasy from the fat.

    Yup. Again use the best you can find, not the shredded milk byproduct from Kraft. A few grates of $15 a pound parmesan gives as much flavor as a 1/2 cup of the stuff in the green cardboard tube.
