Another recipe is using some taco seasoning packets and taco sauce. It's basically all spices and tomato sauce, so nothing bad. Add that in when you're cooking it. When done, just toss it in some lettuce and a little sour cream and you've got a nice taco salad.

You can find sales at RALPH's when the sell Hamburger Helper 10 for $10. This helps you switch flavors somewhat frequently and you can have flavors like 4 cheese lasagna on your cut meal.

Most of the calories come from their white pasta as you can see.

I'm going to be embarrassed buying it...This should be good when I get back on TKD which may not be too long.

What is the advantage to eating 90% lean beef as compared to eating say 99% FF ground turkey burger? I am gonna take a stab and say the fat and extra calories for more of a bulking phase. Would I be correct?

I've been on CKD for 10 days, and I was on TKD for a few weeks before that. I'm doing fine right now and don't mind the lack of carbs. Energy is just as good if not better. I just miss eating some of the foods is all. I've got a cycle starting Sept. 19th, and I think I'll get on TKD for that. It's a six weeker, so I may go half CKD, and then the remainder on TKD.

Volc, you disappointed me, my friend. That Hamburger Helper stuff has hydrogenated oils in it. Instead, I bought wheat/veggie pasta and some cheesy Ragu to make Beef & Cheddar. Basically cheesy mac and beef.

And back to the OP - 90% beef is still a little high in fat, after you brown it strain the fat out. It may look a little dry, but if you're adding in tomato-based sauce then it doesnt matter.
BTW, I use 98% Kangaroo mince - that is the bomb!

Im a bit of a noob, but is anyone out there concerned about the amount of sodium from the hamburger helper?
