  1. Off beat muscle foods


    Sure we all know chicken, sweet potato brown rice etc but I thought what about a thread with a bunch of foods people might not know about to help add variety to the mundane muscle diet.
    Found some 'no yolk' egg noodles made with wheat and egg whites with 8 grams of protein per serving. Can't be beat!


  2. Oh and I should add no cholesterol with only a gram of fat. Bout to go eat some now..

  3. Fat from eggs = good. Cholesterol from eggs = good.

  4. Plain Greek yogurt.
    I cup 120 kilocalories
    23 grams of protein
    9 grams of carbs
    0 fat grams.
    It is really versatile, it can be used as a sour cream replacement, salad dressings, and a number of other ways.
    It has become a staple in my diet.
    Peace

    I love this. It's a damn sin to throw out an egg yolk.

    I've also been eating white rice lately. Goes down much easier than brown and can eat much more of it to get your carb count up. And it's not far off from brown rice in terms of the glycemic index for all of us who are not just worried about MIMO

    Yup. Brown rice isn't exactly micronutrient-rich. In the context of a diet rich in veggies, you should realistically notice zero difference between brown rice and white rice, health-wise.

  8. Cruciferous vegetables like: broccoli, kale, bok choy, cabbage, brussels sprouts, and cauliflower.

    Great source of vitamins and minerals, and IC3.

  9. Bacon!

    Okay, not really.
    I just really love bacon!
    Peace

    Truth. I never know what to eat it with. I've tried everything from sweets like brown sugar to garlic quinoa. That light semi nutty flavor kinda goes with anything

    Straight chicken and quinoa made in low sodium chicken stock and a side of broccoli yummmm

  18. Hmm, I must be the only guy here who doesn't eat "clean." I consume a full kilogram of spring mix a day and fruits with each meal because I love them, but aside from that, almost all my carbs come from Wawa hoagie rolls, kids cereal, and pizza. Oddly enough though, kids' cereal is actually mostly whole grain and pretty damn satiating.

  19. Usually I have 500ml normal milk (highish fat+sat fats) and 500ml ultra slim milk (11.4g of protein per 200ml only costs $1.50, so one carton has like 30g of protein) then whatever else I feel like. Mostly chiicken or beef, fish, eggs, shellfish, white rice, salads, tons of fruit and vege, the odd pie or pizza etc.

    The main things imo are getting in all the minerals and vitamins daily and then building a diet around these basics. Mircos sorted before macros imo.

    True that with the recent children's health push over the past few years sugars have been cut down dramatically while using better quality ingredients. I'm much like yourself still trying to stay on par with clean(er) food. But hey a few simple carbs won't kill you! Amiright?

    I do eat raisin bran & I enjoy apples & bananas as well.
    What's your take on pizza though?
    I limit it to two/three times a week, usually BBQ chicken, bacon, pineapple....

  22. I've also tried the "Bubba" brand steaks the 5.5oz wrapped in bacon.
    I broil em.. They came out alright.


    Anyone try the "Bubba" burger brand? Only thing that worried me about them was the amount of fat in the burger... I think the Foreman would cook some of it off though, but I'm not 100% on that.

    yeah the foreman even is required to have a labeling on the package that says ""According to measured testing by Consumer Reports, editors found no significant difference in fat content between burgers cooked on indoor grills and those fried in pans. So using an electric grill probably is not going to drastically reduce your fat intake unless you change your eating habits in general."

    but I've cooked bubba burgers before and some of the fat usually chunks up around the edge in those off color bubbles, so if you scrape those off you could probably cut down on the fat. not that it matters too much as long as you arn't downing an entire box a day or anything the fat from it isnt too bad

    Not a big fan of pure butter myself. But I do like the butter flavor spray with <5 calories.

    Any reason you recommend butter?

    I specifically use butter from grass fed cows. Good source of fat, good for cooking with(eggs), good on toast, tastes good on veggies, etc.

    Nice. Any chance you can post up the nutritional info?
