Looking for a few good recipes...

Well I've been on a diet for a few months now and I must say I have just about had it with grilled chicken and steamed vegetables

If anyone has any good healthy recipes, I'd love to give them a try.

Thanks!

May sound odd, but go looking for diabetic recipes too. They are very healthy and balanced whether you are a diabetic or not.

Here's one for Tuna salad with no mayo. I double it everytime I make it. Also, I think it is better than regular tuna salad. I know...it doesn't sound good, but just try it! TRUST ME!!!

1/4 of an apple peeled and diced
1-2 celery sticks approx. 6-8" in length finely diced
1 can of chunk light tuna in water, drained
1T. honey mustard
1-2T. balsamic vinegar
pepper to taste

Mix it all together and serve on whole wheat bread or eat with celery sticks.

Sometimes I'll quadruple the recipe so I use all the apple and have enough for the week.

Might also try cooking some favorite recipes, but leave out some of the ingredients which make it worse or sub in others. So instead of making a regular lasagna, you can use ground turkey, less cheese, etc...

"Healthy" does not mean "bland", LOL!

Substitute potatoes for pasta... use healthy oils (olive, canola) instead of fats... skim milk products... lean meats (turkey/venison/buffalo) instead of beef/pork... Braise or saute in vegetable broth...

I do most of my cooking from scratch - it gives me greater control over what actually goes INTO my diet and helps me avoid things like preservatives and corn products... I also drink a minimum of half a gallon of water every day.

I've not exercised in two years and am considerably overweight BUT my blood pressure is 110/64 - I attribute this to the amount of crap I'm keeping OUT of my body.

Now if I could just discipline myself to get up a little early and get OUT of bed...

+1 here with the exercise.
I lost 40 LBs in the last few years and never got off the couch well, that's not totally true, during the warmer weather I was taking the dog for a walk every night. Not saying this is healthy or anything, I'm just saying by eating better alone you can start to turn things around.

Between eating healthy and working out I've managed to lose 50lbs since late summer...

I realize healthy doesn't mean bland, I was just looking for a few good healthy recipes. The cookinglight.com site is great. I've made a few things from there already.

Salmon.

Although I've read that the farm raised is supposed to be higher in those good omega-things, they are also supposed to be higher in mercury or other pollutants, so I normally buy the sockeye salmon when it goes on sale.

Note: I believe I read this in the Tribune: Alaska does not allow "factory farming" of salmon, so any salmon from Alaska (like sockeye) is caught wild (and obviously the normal price is more expensive).

Also, consider putting some spices on your meat to add variety of flavor, such as garlic or onion. Try chopping up some grilled chicken and mix it in with a salad (or, if you allow yourself some pasta occasionally, mix it in there).

Also check out various marinades to see what fits in your diet. You may want to add some lemon flavoring to your chicken and salmon.

Fresh chopped ginger root on the salmon

Try a Granny Smith apple in the tuna salad recipe. Also can toss in raisins, sunflower seeds, and some fresh sqeeuzed lime.

Three Amigos Chili

From Men's Health (March 2006)

What you'll need:

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 small onion, sliced (I prefer red onion)

1 lb ground turkey breast (make sure it is the low fat turkey with only 7 g fat)

1 can diced tomatoes with jalapeno peppers (I use low sodium diced tomatoes and
then add my own jalapeno peppers and juice depending on how spicy you want it)

1 can (10.5 oz) each chickpeas, black beans, and kidney beans, drained (the cans
I get are usually 14 oz so I don't add the whole can or else it won't fit in
my pan, you can add the whole can if you prefer)

1 can (14 oz) low-sodium chicken broth

¼ tsp each salt and cumin (I usually am pretty liberal with adding spices)

1/8 tsp cinnamon

Hot sauce to taste (I don't typically use hot sauce b/c I use the jalapenos
and juice to give it some spice)



How to make it:

In a pot, heat the oil on medium-low. Add the onion and sauté until soft
(about 3-5 minutes). Add the turkey, and brown for about 5 minutes. Add the
tomatoes with juice, chick-peas, beans, broth, and spices. Stir and bring to a
boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Makes 6 servings. (I
also prefer to eat it with whole-grain macaroni in a bowl. That way the
noodles absorb all the juices)



Per Serving: (without my subtle changes)

292 calories, 31 g protein, 32 g carbohydrates, 5 g fat (0 g saturated), 11 g
fiber, 788 mg sodium

Very good stuff in my opinion, but this recipe makes quite a bit of food. Unless you're feeding a couple people, half would be more than enough.

I've made that 3 bean chili. Actually, it's more like a staple in my household. It's so simple and good!!! I love chili and I was skeptical once I finished it and saw how many beans are in there. However, it is very good for as easy as it is! I highly recommend it!
