I know a lot of you need some good recipes. So here are some macro friendly recipes for everyone. I'll add pics for each recipe the next time I cook each one. I'll put the macros per serving for each recipe. They're not exact, just rounded to the closest whole number. If you change any part of the recipes, the macros will change a bit.

(Calories/Protein/Carbs/Fat)

Hawaiian Chicken - (370/43/30/9)

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast or 6 breasts (165/31/0/4)
2 cans diced pineapple (the kind in pineapple juice NOT syrup, very important!!!) (85/1/22/0)
3 bell peppers (assorted) (31/1/6/0)
1 lb mozzarella cheese (shredded) (80/10/1/5)
1 onion (7/0/1/0)
5 tbsp oil
Montreal Seasoning - OPTIONAL but recommended

1 baking dish (atleast 3 inches deep)
1 frying pan
1 pot
aluminum foil



1. Prep
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Take full chicken breast and cut slices 2/3 to 3/4 of the way through down the length of the breast (so it cooks the middle easier). Slice or dice all of the bell peppers and onion. Mix and set aside.

2. Brown chicken on frying pan (doesn't have to be cooked completely through but I'd recommend full cooking). Season chicken before cooking if your going to. Put bell pepper/onion mix in pot on low heat.

3. Once all the chicken is cooked, place in baking pan side by side. Open both cans of pineapple. Pour all of the juice over the chicken but leave the pineapple pieces in the can for now. Take the heated bell pepper/onion mix and spread evenly over the chicken. Cover with aluminum foil. Place in oven for 30 - 35 minutes @ 375 degrees.

4. After 30 -35 minutes, take out the baking dish. Spread 1 lb mozzarella evenly over eveything. Place back in oven until melted (about 5-6 minutes). Once cheese is melted, take baking dish back out of oven. Spread the pineapple pieces on top of the cheese. Place in oven (JUST UNTIL PINEAPPLE IS WARM).

5. Eat
Whole Wheat Flatbread Gyro - (400c/30p/23f/20c)

1lb lamb/beef/chicken (300/26/21/0)
1 head lettuce (0/0/0/0)
1 package whole wheat flatbread (100/4/2/20)
1 onion (0/0/0/0)
1 teaspoon black pepper, salt, oregano, rosemary, thyme
Traditional Greek Seasoning
1 clove garlic
Tzatziki Sauce

1. Slice meat about 2-3mm thick and as long as possible. Dice onion. Mince garlic. Mix the spices together and add 1-2 teaspoon Greek seasoning (or however much you like for flavor). Prep and clean lettuce like usual.

2. Grab saute pan, add 2 tbs oil if its not non-stick. Put in the meat you chose and add seasoning sparingly so there's enough for all of the meat. Cook the meat until its cooked through.

3. Take the flatbread, add the seasoned meat, lettuce, onion and a little bit of garlic. Add Tzatziki Sauce.


I just buy the Tzatziki Sauce from the store. Never personally made it. But this recipe takes about 30 minutes total and makes 3-4 gyros that can be taken with and eaten later. You can always add more meat for more protein. I use Lamb because its high in protein and not much else. I use 2 lbs per 4 servings.
Mexican Chicken - (620/46/55/22)

2 lb chicken breast (166/35/0/2)
1 can cream of mushroom soup (80/2/9/5)
1 can cream of chicken soup (80/2/12/3)
1 can Rotel Original (63/0/13/0)
1 cup chicken broth (11/1/0/0)
1/2 lb Velveeta cheese (80/4/3/5)
1 bag Toasted Corn Doritos (140/2/18/7)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut chicken into smaller pieces so it will cook easier (no smaller than 3x2 in). Boil water in large pot. Add chicken and cook. Crumble entire bag of Doritos in a bowl. Set aside.

2. Once chicken is fully cooked, drain and shred with 2 forks. Mix both soups, Rotel and chicken broth. Set aside. Grab a baking dish (atleast 9x9x6) and layer in this order from bottom to top.
Chicken, Velveeta, Doritos, soup/Rotel mix, Doritos

3. Put in oven for 15 minutes @ 400 degrees. Cut down to 350 degrees until cheese is melted and the Doritos on top have browned.

4. Eat

Sometimes I feel like my dog is eating better since I started restricting my diet. Actually the dog was/still eating better than me some days. I was literally exactly what you were Clen... Chicken (plain) + brown rice/wild rice..

I'm looking at the dog and it's got (my girl spoils the crap out of it), chopped livers, chunks of steak fat, small amount of kibble ( like as a base or something, it's like 5 kibble in there barely counts) and she ... actually ... grated ... cheese on it. Dog is inhaling it. I was looking at the dog eat and my mouth was watering!!! WTF? So these are going to go to good use. I'll be eating better than man chow now (what I called my meals last week).

Thanks Brandinooooo
