Ok... I told you, I'd try to come through with a recipe a day, until all of y'all eatin' right! Lol!!! This is one of my favorites: 

Asian Turkey Burgers

Serving Size 1 (118g); Calories 147; Total Carbohydrate 5.8g; Protein 25.4g

Ingredients
  • Ground turkey breast - 20 oz
  • Egg - 1
  • Breadcrumbs - 1/3 cup
  • Garlic - minced - 1 tablespoon
  • Red onions - minced - 3 to 4 tablespoons
  • Ground ginger - (according to your tastes) - 1/2 to 1 teaspoon
  • Soy sauce - low sodium - 1 tablespoon
  • Black pepper - 1/2 teaspoon
Instructions
  1. Start by putting the ground turkey in a large bowl.
  2. Crack egg into the same bowl and scramble with a fork before mixing in the bread crumbs, garlic, onions, ground ginger, and soy sauce.
  3. Mix together with a fork until just combined. Don't over-mix.
  4. Form into 6 patties (I start with a 1/3 dry measuring cup and adjust the sizes from there).
  5. At this point the burgers are ready for the grill OR the freezer.
  6. TO GRILL:. Grill about 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through (NO PINK IN THE MIDDLE). Will take less time if using a George Foreman Grill ;-)
  7. Top with sauteed red onions if desired.
  8. Serve on toasted/grilled sandwich thins.
  9. TO FREEZE:.
  10. After forming patties, arrange burgers on a cookie sheet and freeze.
  11. Once solid, individually wrap the burgers in sandwich baggies.
  12. Place baggies in a larger zip lock freezer bag or an air tight container.
  13. Thaw before cooking.
  14. EAT CLEAN and TRAIN MEAN!!!

Pulses, sporouts, peas... Chikpeas and MANY diff varieties aof peas....
Best for proteins. Fats from nuts and seeds like flax seeds are THE BEST!!
For non vegetarians, fish and eggs are the best. Red meat takes time to diges plus it has additional cholesterol
Then.... Grains like Jowar bajra are the best :)
Bajra also known as ragi is the best!! Foe prpteins.
Fruits: Best life span and best body (athlete or not) is got by eatinf FRESH fruits and NOT juicing.
Coz anti oxidants save out "rusting of body". And in air yhere is oxygen. And oxygen's work is obviously to oxidize. Lol. Anti oxidants get oxidized by air leaving no anti oxidants for your body.
So, all these make good body. And rice should be brown rice

17 Dec
Crust: 1 and 3/4 cup of almond meal, 2 medjool dates, 1.5 tbsp sunflower seed butter (or other butter) Bake the crust for about 15min. Then the cheesecake mix on top: 250g quark or cottage cheese, 3 tbsp Whey protein vanilla, 1 cup of whole milk (or other milk), 5 tbsp vanilla casein then I like to put on top 1 cup of frozen raspberries and bake it for about 30 min (try to not over bake) You can play around with the flavours :)

Oh Mario!! You can make sprouted pulses like this:
1. Just after the pulses sprput, cook them, cook them in water with salt first for hard beans/ pulses. Cook a paste of tomato and onion puree. With ginger garlic paste.
Add the cooked beans/ sprouts in the cooked puree and add red chilli powder, turmeric powder, curry powder, etc... I mean any Indian type spice. Now, let it cook nicely and absorb the flavour.
After it gets cooked, garnish it with corriander leaves (and not parsley).
Eat this with brown bread or pita bread.
Enjoy your protein rich meal :)
Oh to cook the puree first add 1 tsp of oil too. Then garlic and ginger paste then onion puree and last is tomato paste :)

17 Dec
That sounds delicious and very healthy. I am thanking you for the recipe... from all of us, Lizzie. :-)

Ana S' "Protein Cheesecake", for those of you on a platform where the recipe got cut in half, for lack of space: 

Crust: 1 and 3/4 cup of almond meal, 2 medjool dates, 1.5 tbsp sunflower seed butter (or other butter) Bake the crust for about 15min. Then the cheesecake mix on top: 250g quark or cottage cheese, 3 tbsp Whey protein vanilla, 1 cup of whole milk (or other milk), 5 tbsp vanilla casein then I like to put on top 1 cup of frozen raspberries and bake it for about 30 min (try to not over bake) You can play around with the flavours :)

Here's the recipe for today... Protein rich and tasty.

Italian Roast Beef

Serving Size 1 (218g); Calories 340; Total Carbohydrate 2.4g; Protein 43.6g

Ingredients

  • Kosher salt - 1/2 cup
  • Basil - dried - 1/2 cup
  • Oregano - dried - 1/2 cup
  • Garlic - granulated - 1/2 cup
  • Black pepper - freshly ground - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Roast - fat cap on
  • Olive oil - extra

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Combine the salt, basil,oregano, granulated garlic and onion, and the black pepper in a mixing bowl.
  2. Trim all the fat from the beef round. Rosemary grinds the trimmings, but you can cut them up into bite-size pieces. Put the trimmings on the bottom of a roasting pan and sprinkle with some of the seasoning mix. Put the roast beef on top and coat the beef well with more of the seasoning mix. Drizzle the olive oil over the top of the roast and pat it into the seasonings.
  3. Roast for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until the internal temperature registers 130 degrees (medium-rare) on an instant-read thermometer. Remove from the oven and let stand for about 20 minutes before carving.
  4. Serve it up and enjoy.

Chermaine got me thinking... Y'all can thank her for getting one more recipe today. I'm not sure she does her salad the same way... Probably not. But I love avocados... It's some of the best stuff you can eat... So here's a dish she made me think about, but with my own twist.

Crushed avocado with ocean king prawns and grapefruit salad.

Ingredients:

2 ripe avocados

Juice of a lemon

Juice and zest of a lime

1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves

1/2 red Chilli finely chopped

6 mint leaves, finely sliced

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 small salad onion, finely diced

1 tbsp fish sauce

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 grapefruit, peeled and segmented

24 cooked and peeled medium ocean king prawns

2 cups mixed salad leaves

2 dessert spoons rice wine vinegar

6 dessert spoons extra virgin olive oil

Method:

Halve, peel and crush avocados roughly with the back of a fork.

Add lemon juice, lime juice and zest, coriander leaves, chilli, mint, garlic, salad onion, fish sauce, the prawns, of course and pepper.

Enjoy! 

EAT CLEAN and TRAIN MEAN!
