    Just thought we could benefit from sharing some of our favorite healthy foods. Recipe's welcome of course, but also simple stuff.

    Some of my favorites. I keep it very, very simple.

    Tuna fish-straight out of the can
    Chicken Breast-cooked on a george forman
    Cottage Cheese-great as a side dish
    Black Beans-by themselves or mixed with eggs
    Eggs (Save a lot of time scrambling them then microwaving them, very easy and fast)
    Ground Turkey-substitute for ground beef, I actually like it better too
    skim milk-

    Those are just a few of my ideas.

    I do this, too, if I am in a big rush. If you like jalapeños, it's very easy to add a couple from the jar, which takes no extra time.

    I like vegetables as snacks, but I get tired of the same old celery and carrots sometimes. I buy those bags of uncut green beans. I throw them on a baking sheet and put them in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes. This cooks them just enough and they're still crunchy and I can eat them with my hands. They actually taste pretty sweet.

    Asparagus is also good prepared this way in the oven, then drizzled with a little balsamic vinegar.

    It's a good way to make veggies easy. Sometimes I don't feel like fussing with the sautée pan.

    I agree about the ground turkey. It is awesome and replaces all the beef in my cooking. My sister made us dinner two nights ago. She cooked up some lean chicken tenderloins and added a homemade sweet/spicy stirfry sauce, various sweet peppers, and served over whole grain rice. It was amazing.

    My favorites are Hebrew National 98% fat free hot dogs. Not sure if they are totally healthy but way better than regular hot dogs. I also love Popchips for when I am craving potato chips or something crunchy. They have way less calories and fat than regular potato chips. One of my favorites for dinner is to buy ground chicken. It's not easy to find though. I like it better than the ground turkey. I like to fry it with vegis and fresh salsa and it that for dinner.

    Hummus!! Love it with lots of raw veggies, especially broccoli. Or on crackers (baked and low sodium).

    All kinds of nuts in moderation.

    I am a bit weird, but I also like basically all veggies. Roasting or steaming them keeps the nutrients in much better than boiling them, plus it taste better. Roast in the oven with some olive oil, salt, and pepper, works on almost any veggie.

    Chicken and Turkey is mostly what I eat. When I eat beef I try to make sure it's at least 93/7 or higher.
    I'm a fat man at heart and love to eat. Just wish it wouldnt cost so much lol.

    I'm trying to learn to like veggies but the kid in me still finds them gross.

    Hummus, steamed veggies, grilled chicken, yogurt, fruit (fugi apples especially), oatmeal. Though I also have many "unhealthy" favorites, but that's for another thread!

    i've got to add lentils to the list here. Very easy to make. Wash 'em off. Throw them in a pot add some water. Cook. Done.

    They go great with just about anything. They are cheap. They can be seasoned to fit just about any taste. They are packed with protein. Highly recommend.

    I love to make salads but not just the regular kind but one which has everything in it.

    I make it with chopped up, cucumbers, tomatoes, mango, italian parsley, basil, avocado, lettuce parmesan cheese, feta, olives, and sometimes I use some left over steak of chicken slicked really thin.

    For the salad dressing I use Olive oil, honey lemon juice some teriaki sauce, garlic, aged balsamic and salt and pepper

    Its amazing and tasty

    I’ve replaced my morning fried eggs (2) with the combination of 1 egg and 1/3 cup of egg whites... scramble it up and bang, tastes just like regular scrambled eggs with much less calories, and 0 fat. Add a slice of quality whole grain organic toast and a teaspoon of organic fat-free peanut butter and a wedge of pineapple for a satisfying, healthy breakfast.

    Between meal snacks consist of things like Greek yogurt with granola, low-fat cottage cheese, raw almonds or a piece of fruit (apple, banana, mango slices, pineapple,etc). Sliced veggies are also good snacks - zucchini, cucumber, carrots, broccoli florets, grape tomatoes, baby carrots...
