Food List for CLEAN eating
Ok, I have my own list, but frankly would like to expand it. Recipes help but, for this thread, how about if we just list foods that should/could appear on a well-made 'eating clean' shopping/meal list...
The very basic...
oatmeal (whole grain)
chicken, breast (skinless, boneless)
cottage cheese (fat free or low fat)
brown rice (long grain)
The 'would work for some plans, not for
pasta (whole wheat) [possibly organic]
Let the listing begin! Give your favorites or fill in what gets left out as we go along...

bison steak(lower fat than chicken breast and tastes awesome)
ground trukey breast;it can be added to anything for a different texture
I think that seasonings become vitally important when trying to eat clean(low sodium of course)

Ground turkey. I like to mix a little bit of "Franks hot sauce" in it and eat b4 bed...good sleep, good slow release protein.

Good list Fireproof... thanks.
Any more additions?
What about other ideas for food prep? To keep from getting tired of a food type?

I think a lot of people forget about lean ground beef. You can now find 96% lean ground beef in most grocery stores (including Walmart) for pretty cheap, and it has about the same fat content as a chicken breast.
Plus, it's very flexible. I brown up a few pounds of it at a time and eat it a variety of ways (on a salad, or mixed with sweet potatoes, or just plain with a side of veggies, etc...)
Good source of protein. Red meat = yummy!
Don't forget plenty of greens. Top three choices would be: Broccoli, Asparagus, and Green Beans.

I second the ground turkey. In many cases, its cheaper than chicken and a lot leaner too.Originally Posted by refrieddreams

All we're really given is a little dash between two dates: when you started and when you ended. What will you do with your dash?

Hey dudes, lets keep this list going. Nice link Crowned One!

Careful with the frozen boneless/skinless chicken it can have a hell of a lot of sodium.

Whole wheat tortillas and a sugar-free salsa: great for tex-mex varieties.
Olives: most only think of the oil but why not eat the whole fruit - especially for satiety when dieting.
10-19-2005, 03:27 PM
Fireproof comes in and lays the smack down as always.
I love tuna sandwhiches on whole wheat with melted fat free mozerlla cheese thats what im eating now so thats why i posted it :0
10-19-2005, 04:06 PM
It may be boring but look at the benefits, and theres always updated foods comign out
that are healthy.
10-19-2005, 04:11 PM
Buffalo/whole wheat pasta
grilled chicken/brown rice
Salman./ Red potatoe (white potaoes RE FAST ACTING CARBS)
LOW FAT COTTAGE CHEESE/APPLE
tuna/whole grain wheat wrap
turket breast/ wild rice
fat free yogurt/ grapefruit

Be careful with the whole wheat tortillas. I love them but until recently I didn't know that some brands contain hydrogenated oils.
10-20-2005, 02:21 PM
i noticed after i ate a whole wheat tortilla (with tuna) last night that i had a weird smell/feeling something coming from my stomach(or wherever) , unless it was my multi.
The Hydrogenated oil should show up on the ingredidents so just get whole wheat totillas w/o Hydrogenated oil. problem sloved

Mustard like Grey Poupon is virtually calorie free and adds taste to food.
11-12-2005, 01:29 AM
I like to eat different types of wild game as typically they have a lower fat content yet a high protein content
Another thing to try is edamame.
11-13-2005, 09:27 PM
Yeah, mustard is definitely the bodybuilder's condiment. Anyone mention GrapeNuts? A little high in sodium but they're great in the morning w/skim milk when I dont have time to cook oatmeal.

Trader joes california complete protein sprouted grain bread, 3 slices butterball 98% fat free turkey breast, 3 slices fat free american cheese, lettuce, tomato and sweet+spicy mustard.

ex!! where have ya been buddy? long time no see
12-09-2005, 06:57 AM
What's up bro! Between school, work and sex crazy girlfriends my time has been locked lately
Thankfully the semester is just about over and I am going to have time to come pester you guys again... I'm even going to try and cut down to compete in the 242lb weight class, imagine that
How about you bro, you have any comps in the pipe? How's your weight doing?
12-09-2005, 08:17 AM
return of the ex-man?! Nice!!! Keep after those Trader Joes sandwiches, and you're gonna lose that manly 39" waist...
12-09-2005, 08:28 AM
well its sounds like things are going well for, that's greatOriginally Posted by exnihilo
you at 242? don't turn to the side, we might not be able to see ya haha .. what are you currently at?
right now i'm sitting at 206 around a true 10% and i've been natty since my last show .. which is great because i started dieting last at 205 around 13%
however i fear i'm gonna lose some weight as my finals are about to kick into high gear and i've already taken the past two weeks of the gym and unfortunately will definitely have to take next week off as well .. its also hard for me to get all my meals in currently .. but such is life
no comps planned any time for at least the next two years ... i wanna get up to 230 or so before i diet down again .. i figure then i could come in at 198 at 5'8 and be just where i should be at as a light heavy

Almonds!....everyone should be eating Almonds (or any nuts, but almonds are best)
they also have whole wheat pizza dough now premade and what not..you can make a nice pizza using that and some low fat mozzerella and some Ricotta cheese....F the tomato sauce cuz most probably has HFCS in it..
any kind of lowfat dairy should be in the diet IMO cheese..milk...the other day i had a 1% mlik sugar free or no sugar added chocolate milk...**** was good.
of course chicken in a can (like the tuna)...or the salmon in a can..etc.
shrimp are good also.....some shrimp/brocolli can't go wrong
water chestnuts are good also...low cal and high fiber..they give an awesome crunch and texture to just about anything...
have some of those, turkey bacon and egg/egg white omelette...

I'm currently sitting at about 258 or so, been dieting down since a week before thanksgiving. Started a bit slow, but the weight has been melting off now that I've really dialed the eating. I've been partying like a mofo over the last couple of months I'm not much leaner than I was in the pics from right after I got off the juice... Soon to change thoughOriginally Posted by glenihan
Don't stress too much about small setbacks man, they happen, you're in killer shape and you've got some good size on you. School is super important and you will come back really fast after the layoff, so it's all gravy. Just do whatever it takes to be happy and everything else will take care of itself.

Anyone have thoughts on Maverick Naturalite 4% fat ground beef?
I eat alot, as it is easy to prepare, and isn't high in fat at all like typical ground beef.
12-10-2005, 10:46 PM
cottage cheese plus frozen blackberries
blackberries are really high in fiber
chef boyardee 99% fat free ravioli
^^ watch the sodium on that one though
