Anybody have a good recipe for vegetable moussaka?
Of course. I also live within walking distance of Whole Foods.
Cool. How do you prepare them? If you overcook them, they just taste bland and mushy. Have you tried cooking them just enough so that they are cooked but not mushy, maybe just slightly crunchy? They also look more appetizing if they have a slight sear mark on them.
I also do a lot of steamed veggies because it's super quick and easy, and very healthy.
And almost anything tastes good with melted butter, and a bit of black pepper and sea salt sprinkled on top.
I also like raw veggies dipped in a good ranch dressing (broccoli, carrots, red/ orange/ yellow bell pepper, snap peas...). Hidden Valley Ranch is my fav ranch dressing.
I'm not much on cooking, so what 'good' foods do you all generally keep in stock?
I'm currently in another food-transitioning process, so I need things that I can take with me on-the-go, or munch on in between classes. My biggest issue is being hungry after being somewhere for a while, and just stopping to get something that ends up being a bad choice.
Luckily I've weened myself back onto water
[MENTION=3]MacGuffin[/MENTION]: Green smoothies?
haha, I love almost all green (or otherwise) veggies and those still sound nasty to me. I'd way rather have veggies in a delicious salad or gently sauteed rather than drinking green goop.
I guess I would try it once if they were offered to me, but no way I'm ruining my own veggies by turning them into goop. Plus I suspect you'd lose a lot if not most of the fibre.
this is a single person recipe enough for a couple servings.
1 or 2 baked chicken breasts diced
1/2 cup halved red grapes
2 sticks chopped celery
1 tsp curry powder
2 or 3 tbsp of fat free or low fat mayo
1 tbsp mango chutney
salt and pepper to taste
mix mango chutney, mayo and curry powder in a bowl then add chix, celery and grapes and mix. It makes a delicious, low fat chx salad.
I just wing it with the measurements but I figured that's about what I use.
I've been exceeding my exercise goals and ignoring my diet.
My total intake each day should be about 10 or 11 blocks each of protein, carbs, and fat. If I want to lose weight, I need to eat more protein than carbs. These are the most recent totals that I just tallied a few minutes ago, yikes:
Friday's total - 15p, 16 Â½ c, 10f
Saturday's total - 8 Â½ p, 15c, 12f
Sunday's total (today) - 10 Â½ p, 6c, 11f
At least I was back on track today....
