Rather than creating a sub-forum for recipes I figured it'd be a good idea to just make a sticky completely dedicated to recipes. This is where we can share our favorite recipes that contribute to good eating and proper fueling for whatever Athletics we embark upon. I'll share a couple for now, I just worked out so mentally I'm a little wasted, more to come when I can think more clearly: Guilt Free Hamburgers: I posted this in another thread, but for those interested in how to have those Sunday cookouts without all the cursing and swearing for cheating on your regimen, here ya go. 1/4 lb of 99% lean ground beef or ground turkey patties (or if you prefer hand-rolling your burgers you'll need a couple of eggs or whatever you use to hold the meat together, I use eggs because there's nothing wrong with them). whole wheat bun 1/2 cup or so of mixed veggies (I prefer bell peppers, zucchini, perhaps squash, onions) 1 teaspoon either steak sauce or BBQ sauce Dash of pepper Dash of salt You can cook the burgers any way BUT frying. Foreman grill, open-flame grill, or even broiler if you don't have grill access. Broilers are underestimated a lot. If you use one of those broiler pans where the fat drips into a lower pan you can eliminate some of the fat from the meat. Though ground turkey won't have a lot to begin with. You can either marinade the meat in the sauce or add while cooking, doesn't really matter but I prefer marinading overnight. Cook to your preference of tenderness. Sautee the vegetables to preferred tenderness. Toast the buns if you like. When you top the burgers with the vegetables, done just right, the consistency of the veggies will resemble cheese, thus, you won't miss cheese at all. Guilt-free Strawberry Cheesecake: I didn't think this was possible but my Aunt pulled out a miracle. Every year for my Birthday (22nd of December), my Aunt makes a Strawberry Cheesecake. But me being in Pro training I was dreading having to give it away. So she says she could concoct a version I could eat. Here's how she did it: She took a typical cheesecake recipe but did some substitutions. Skim milk in place of milk. Eggs were fine. Non-fat cottege cheese. Light cream. Splenda in place of sugar. And instead of making the entire cake cheese she used a layer of angel-food cake beneath a layer of the cheesecake. The strawberry topping was also made from fresh strawberries, no syrup. Tasted pretty good, too. Here's also my little protein concoction that I use post-workout: 2 scoops ON Vanilla Whey Protein 2 tablespoons apple cinnamon Lecithin Granules 1/3 of a banana 2 cups of skim milk 4 ice-cubes Comes out pretty nice and fairly tasty. That's it for now, feel free to share whatever others you like.
