  1. Help with tuna


    Just lookin for a few possibilities to spice up the tuna. I usually just eat from the can, no problemo. It would be nice to know a few ways of switching it up.. nothing major just little things. Any ideas?


  2. Cajun seasoning...

    Omega rich mayo (made with olive oil)

    lemon pepper + paprika

    put it on a salad with a light vinegar dressing and some almond slices and boiled eggs

  5. Ive done the yellow mustard, its not too shabby. I like the paprika/lemon pepper idea. I dont really have much room for other foods I'm still getting pretty stuffed on these calories. Im sure in a week Ill be able to push past 4500, maybe then Ill throw it in a salad.

    50!?!?!? Good greef charlie brown! That will prob only last you a week too hahah. I cant eat that much tuna..... I can storm through some can chicken though!!!! mmmmmm.....

    Can chicken with mayo, mustard, garlic powder onion powder, cajun powder, black pepper, salt, italian seasoning, chopped up onion, lettuce, or spinach leaves, diced tomatoes, melt in some cheese. Make a huge batch and let it sit for a night. You have scoopable make shift sandiwches till you run out. And i cant get enough of it..... Its like crack!

  20. Another twist is cottage cheese and tuna.

  21. i like hot sauce on mine sometimes I stuff hard boiled eggs with the mixture.

  22. Tapatio sauce for a simple quick fix. Sometimes I add veggies such as diced onions and celery as well.

  23. I'm done with canned tuna... Canned chicken same price more protein

    Canned chicken ftw!!

    Just checked out your Blog, I like it. Can you help me out with something I can use with my Better Protein Bars from ****, in stead of Honey? I don't like the sugar, but it's used to kind of hold the entire mixture together. Thanks!

    Absolutely, I'll do that now, thanks a lot for your help!

    Each Better Protein Bar pack comes with all of the dry ingredients you need to make 12 fresh homemade all natural protein bars. What could be better than making your very own fresh protein bars? It’s simple; we took all of the hard work out of it for you. With the Better Protein Bar pack all you need to do is: pour it in a bowl, add in your wet ingredients (water, milk, almond milk, etc) and mix, that’s it. No long list of ingredients, no thinking, and no baking. In just 2-5 minutes from start to finish and you have 12 fresh, 100% all natural protein bars!

    As if that wasn’t good enough, here at Need To Build Muscle, we go one step further for you - the customer. At Need To Build Muscle, we have a mission statement - “To provide bodybuilders, athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and health nuts with products tailored to their needs and designed to their detailed specifications.” and we mean it!
    For some reason, that doesn't specify or even mention the honey. It's from the product page on their website.

    Let me go check Nutra's page and see if that has any info...

    FOUND IT! http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/n...2-bar-mix.html

    Here is the blurb...

    Better Protein Bars Directions:

    Mix contents of pouch by hand in a blow with: 3/4 cup of Honey, 1 cup of Smart Balance Peanut Butter, 1/4 cup water. Press shape into square dish. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Using butter-knife cut into 12 bars.

    Two substitute possibilities come to mind. I'm assuming that your goal is to replace the honey with something that has a lower glycemic index and/or you just don't like the taste of honey:

    Substitute 1: Agave nectar - has a very low glycemic index, is about the same consistency as honey, and can be bought in places like Wal*Mart. Look by the sugar and splenda in the baking isle.

    Substitute 2: Sugar Free Maple Syrup. If you like the flavor of Maple, this would be a sugar-free substitute. It's slightly thinner than honey, but the maple flavor may add a nice dimension. Be careful with certain sugar-free products, some (not all) can have a nasty aftertaste.

    Whenever I use honey, I always opt for RAW Honey (sometimes labeled Organic--same as RAW). Glycemic index aside, it has many health benefits. Google Health Benefits of Raw Honey.

    Let me know how it goes. If you want to try some different flavors, you could also experiment with some sugar-free coffee syrups.
    I'm not sure about maple, every maple syrup I've had is almost runny like water. But yeh def go with raw honey, I got the number of a bee guy not far from me who sells his own honey, totally forgot about that untill now.

  34. Ya the SF maple syrup I have still has around 10-15g of sugar alcohol.

    Thanks so much! Malitol in sugar free syrup might be the way to go... I wonder if the maple flavor of the syrup would overpower the peanut butter protein mix/bars - but I have five bags of Need 2's Better Protein Bars, so that's 60 bars in total, I can afford to 'mess up' 12 if it doesn't work out.

    I did see the Agave product while googling recently, but saw it has 17g carbohydrates, seemingly even more carb-dense than honey itself, but as you said they are slower digesting (oh, but I do love the taste of honey).

    I used to pour honey on white bread or rice cakes after a workout years ago as my ritual.

  36. Don't forget to use Power Butter!

    I'm addicted! I have Power Butter and Celery basically daily - mmmmmm. I don't like that I have to mix it for five minutes before I eat it, but that goes for any natural peanut butter, but this is awesome because it's got egg whites and flax. I have five Power Butter containers right now - they will be gone soon, haha!

    I order them from Need to Build Muscle's website, Power Butter and Need 2 Slin along with four bags of Better Protein Bars just came in the mail. AHH YEAH!

    Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?

    I am going to check it out... the protein is the same, from egg whites and flax? Thanks for the suggestion man! I am going to try and find it on Google

    Oh, I need to go to Wal-Mart tonight anyway, SCORE. Wait, I have five containers of Power Butter, haha, but I still need some other things. The last couple sentences could have been deleted without taking anything away from this post, but yet, I keep typing..........

    EDIT: I FOUND IT... AND... I USED TO EAT IT LIKE CRAZY DURING A CONTEST PREP A FEW YEARS AGO! I had soooooo much of it during the diet, it made me want to puke. I don't know if my appetite is back yet for it, but everyone can check it out here http://www.naturallymore.com/products.html

    I can't find anything specific as far as the protein content compared to Power Butter (other than it has 10g)
