I made it again tonight actually... you could easily cut the oil and salt... the onion and red pepper will stay moist in the pan...

and the reason I load the shit up with lemon juice when it's in the bowl is to meet the craving for something like sharp chedder or even more salt to put some acidity in the flavor "matrix"

the lemon juice just balances the whole thing out for my taste...

we also like to dice up some avocado on top for obvious reasons

I always mean to double the recipe because we go through it so quickly!

oh, and we just use regular diced tomatoes and a can of fire roasted green chilis... if you like heat, I would slice up some fresh serrano and throw that in there either with the onion and red pepper or when you add the diced tomato and black beans depending on how much you like heat :cool:

Tonights meal was grilled lemon pepper chicken, grilled asparagus, and a salad. Mid day meals/snacks for the week is chicken salad with no mayo, chopped pecans, grapes, and organic brown mustard (no HFCs). Oh, and fruit. Alternating between eggs and oats for breakfast. I need to grab some granola though.

I'm going to try your recipe, Forrest. I like lentil, and that looks good.

I also make this, and don't need anything else to go with it, but makes a good side as well. Head of cabbage, whole white onion, diced, and bean sprouts. 1/2 Tbsp olive oil. Sauté onions til translucent, then add cabbage and bean sprouts. LIGHTLY. Just 3-4 minutes stirring the whole time. I like it still crunchy, if you let it go too long it will wilt. Pepper to taste (I use a lot, sometimes substitute crushed red pepper instead of black).

I agree on the taste of the plain yogurt, but what I usually do is mix a “sweet” Greek yogurt with some plain and it still tastes great, plus of course...additional protein, along with lots of probiotics/live active cultures.

Rather than repost the entire thing here...

EVOO not as healthy as they claim, according to new research. Canola oil now #1 choice.

I received my XF protein last night and whipped up some oats and mixed it with some cinnamon roll and it turned out delightful.
I ate it for dessert.
The chocolate peanut butter smells exactly like peanuts too.

If you all want the recipe, I can get it from her. It was our veggie night meal last week. It was surprisingly fantastic.

added some cilantro, lemon juice and green onions at the end...

Amazing! Oh and I doubled the original recipe, and added water to make a little more liquid consistancy, no oil and no salt added to this batch. Also went with a can of hatch green chiles, and 2 diced fresh jalapenos, and one can black beans, one can pinto beans, one can kidney beans, and one can black eyed peas instead of all black beans. Rinsed them out of the can, then added them same as Forrest's recipe. Still came out amazing, I have plenty for lunch this week and then some.

Posting some stuff from another forum.

Protein Pancakes

Ingredients

* 1/2 cup rolled oats
* 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese (or low fat or full fat)
* 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
* 2 tbsp flaxseed meal
* 1/4 tsp cinnamon
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 1/4 cup water
* pinch of salt
* 1/2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
* 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder

* cooking spray or coconut oil
* agave syrup

Direction

1. Heat medium size skillet to medium heat.
2. Place the oats, cottage cheese, apple sauce, flax, cinnamon, vanilla extract, water, and salt in the blender and blend on high for 1 minute, until incorporated thoroughly.
3. Add the baking powder and protein powder and give the blender a few quick pulses to incorporate.
4. Coat the skillet with oil and pour 1/4 of the batter on the skillet.
5. After bubbles begin to form around the edges, flip the pancake to cook the other side.
6. Remove pancake and continue to cook the rest of the cakes.
7. Serve with agave syrup, fruit, peanut butter, etc.

Tip: Place cooked pancakes in a slightly warmed oven, to keep the heated while you finish making the rest of the batch.

Yields 4 servings.

Chocolate Protein Yogurt Parfait

Ingredients

* 3/4 cup 2% ***e plain yogurt
* 1 serving (32g) chocolate whey protein powder (I like Optimum Nutrition Natural)
* 1 tbsp water
* 1/4 cup blueberries, fresh
* 1 tbsp Uncle Sam cereal

Directions

Add yogurt, protein powder, and water to food processor and blend together. You may need to use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the food processor container to ensure that the protein powder is thoroughly incorporated.

Pour yogurt mixture into a bowl. Top with blueberries and Uncle Sam. Indulge… and feel good about it!

Note: For less calories and/or protein, use ˝ scoop of protein powder rather than a full serving. You could also add cocoa powder for more chocolatey flavor!

Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Ingredients

* 1 tbsp ground cumin
* 1 tsp onion powder
* 1 tsp garlic powder
* 1/2 tsp chili powder
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/2 tsp black pepper
* 1 tbsp olive oil + drizzle
* 2 medium size sweet potatoes (about 16 oz total)

Directions

Preheat oven to 500° F. Cover baking sheet with foil (for easy clean up) or skip this step. Drizzle a little olive oil onto baking sheet and wipe with a paper towel to coat evenly.

I like to coat the baking sheet as well as add a thin coating of oil on the fries themselves, to ensure that they do not stick (without having to add massive amounts of oil).

In a small bowl, mix spices together with a fork. Set aside.

Cut sweet potatoes into ˝” x ˝” fries. I tend to slice the potato stick in half as well if the potatoes are really long. I leave the skin on, for nutritional purposes as well as for the extra crispiness that it adds.

In a large bowl, combine the cut potatoes and oil, and toss with one hand. With your other hand, add the spice mixture a sprinkle at a time, and continue to toss until the potatoes are evenly coated.

Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet and place on the middle shelf of the oven. Bake until edges are crisp and potatoes are cooked through — about 15-20 minutes.

Baked Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach and Cottage Cheese.


6 servings

Ingredients:

6 Chicken Breasts (large)

For Stuffing:

A big bunch of spinach

Cottage Cheese

1 Egg

1 Clove Garlic chopped

Black Pepper

Salt

Olive Oil

Balsamic Vinegar

Coating:

Italian Dressing

A1 steak sauce

Dijonnaise Mustard

Cider Vinegar

2 Tbsp each

Method:

Take breast and lay a piece of cling wrap or plastic over. Use a meat mallet or a rolling pin to flatten it. Try to get an even thickness.

Sauté spinach in olive oil, garlic, salt, black pepper and balsamic vinegar. It will cook down to very little. Let it cool.

Transfer to a pan and add in cottage cheese and egg and mix it well.

Take about 3 Tbsp of the mixture and put it on the flattened meat.

Roll the meat up and secure top and sides with toothpicks (soak them in water before hand)

Coat baking tray with Spray on Olive oil. If you don’t have this any oil will do. Just spread a good amount around.

Transfer chicken to coated tray.

Mix coating ingredients and spread over chicken.

Pop in the pre heated oven for 20 mins on 200 degrees Celsius.

Post Notes:

I made my recipe as healthy as possible. You can substitute the cottage cheese for feta or shredded parmesan to make it tastier.

If you have time marinade the chicken to give it more flavoring. Marinade with olive oil , garlic and anything acidic (lemon juice/cider vinegar/yoghurt). Oil gives it moisture and the acidic bit tenderizes it. Marinade AFTER flattening.

Chocolate-Banana Cheesecake:

The crust:

2 bananas
2 cups oats

Blend in food processor then line the bottom of a pie tin with the mixture. Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees.

The Filling:

16oz FF cream cheese
2 bananas
1/2 cup splenda
2 eggs
2 egg whites
2 tbsp vanilla extract

Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Pour into the pie tin with the crust and bake on 350 degrees for ~45minutes or until you can poke it with a fork and pull it out with nothing on it. When done, allow to cool to room temperature before putting in the fridge.

The Chocolate Topping:

1 scoop chocolate whey
4 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp splenda

Mix all ingredients with water until thick. After the cheesecake has been in the fridge for ~30 minutes, spread the topping on the cake then replace in fridge to set for another hour or so. Cut into 8 slices.

1 slice (1/8 recipe) has ~200 calories.

Here's one my kids really like...especially since I'm always cooking chicken / turkey and not much else.

Take large boneless/skinless chicken breasts and slit down the side (be careful to make more of a pocket than a slice through and through.) Get some tomato/basil/herb laughing cow cream cheese (or any other flavor you enjoy...there are tons of different ones to choose from)

insert one wedge of cream cheese into the small slit cut into the side of the chicken, along with a small slice of bell pepper (I use a small slice of yellow, green, and red) and also a small slice of onion (I use purple onion)

Wrap stuffed chicken breast with a slice of turkey bacon using a toothpick to make the bacon stay in place if need be. sprinkle over the tops of prepared bacon wrapped breasts, the remaining diced onion/pepper left overs ... add any seasoning to taste (I use a small dash applewood bacon rub) Cover the pan and bake on 375 for at least 30 minutes. Uncover dish and continue to bake for another 15 minutes.
