2 cans Bush's Best Dark Red Kidney Beans
2 cans Bush's Best Black Beans

bouillon, garlic, chopped onion, and 4 cups water. Let simmer low heat.
In a separate skillet, brown meat with FAJITA seasoning in 1 lb. or 1

Chili recipe looks good Crusher...I usually use ground turkey breast for the meat but like the idea of chunks of meat added as well.



Dracoy, you've really put some effort into these..much appreciated!  What do you think the average person would think about the taste of the brownies?  Can you compare it to a specific bar?

My dad hates healthy food and he kept sneaking into my tupperware to steal some. These are NOT for those with a sweet tooth. It is sweet but not overly sweet. The best way to describe it is if you have tried the Chinese Red Bean Nian Gao.

They are light and not dry, pretty good snack, but not really a dessert.

Personally if you are crazy for sweet, add some sugar/honey/artificial sugar/chocolate. I purposely did not put any sugar in it to keep it extra healthy.

Anyone have any experience w/ cod fish? I was reading Dennis James Tampa prep diet and he had a large amount of cod fish in it, which motivated me to buy some and cook it for the first time even thought i've always used orange roughy, tilapia, salmon, and tuna in the past for fish.. came out w/ moderate results, used white wine cooking sauce, lemon pepper and sea salt.. what say you?

Thanks maybe these would be what I'm looking for for a breakfast bar when needed.  Have you tried freezing them? 

I don't think I've ever tried Chinese Red Bean Nian Gao!

I'm sure they would be fine frozen. I personally kept them in a tupperware on the counter. I think refrigerating them would of been smart :p.

The recipe offers a good base for you to play around with what stuff you like, it is pretty flexible. It would work pretty well as a breakfast bar.

   I rarely measure anything unless I'm baking.  In this recipe it won't matter anyway.
       
Ratatouille

   flour seasoned with garlic powder, dried basil, Italian seasoning, fresh ground pepper
   olive oil
   garlic, crushed and minced
   1 large Vidalia onion, quartered and chopped/sliced
   1 large eggplant, cubed (salted, rinsed and dried)
   bell peppers (red, orange &/or yellow), coarsely chopped
   2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes - (1 can with green chillies)
   3 to 4 small zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch slices
   dried basil
   dried Italian seasoning
   balsamic vinegar
   sugar or Splenda
 
Put the seasoned flour in a plastic bag.
Slice the eggplant (1/2 inch thick) and salt each side - put it back together and let it sit
Chop the zucchini, peppers, onion and garlic and saute in olive oil until semi tender. Remove from pan and set aside.

Rinse the eggplant, pat dry and cut into cubes.  Put in bag of seasoned flour and shake.  Put in colander to shake off excess flour.

Heat pan and add olive oil.  Add eggplant to hot oil.  Stir only when it starts to get brown.  You'll probably want to do this in 2 batches.  Remove from pan.

Add cooked vegs back to pan with tomatoes and seasonings.  Bring to simmer and add eggplant. Add about a tablespoon or so of balsamic and about a tablespoon of sugar.

This is really good with diced up chicken, or canned salmon/tuna, or by itself.  For extra yummyness top with feta cheese  Grin

Ratatouille

 

Made a big batch last night ~ most everything fresh from my garden or the farmers market.
I usually cook everything separately and then bring them together in the end.  I started with peppers - red, orange, yellow, purple and light green.  2nd pic is the end result.

Here's my protein-pancake recipe:

1 Can of Fat-free Evaporated Milk (if you wanted you could just use skim milk)
1 Cup of Oatmeal
6 Egg Whites
2/3 - 1 Cup of Protein Powder (I like to use Vanilla)
1 Cup of Cottage Cheese (Don't worry you won't taste it)

Put all the ingredients in a blender. Blend until it's smooth. Cook like regular pancakes. I usually top them with honey. You can also add fruit to these as well (just blend it in). I usually get about three or four days worth of breakfasts out of this recipe. I just pour it in smaller containers & store it in the fridge/freezer.

made these last night and this morning and they were incredible...thanks for the recipe!

I made this today when I was craving something sweet.  It's pretty solid for a precontest meal (just over 9 weeks out).  

Mix 1 1/2 cups of ricotta cheese with 1/2-1 cup of blueberries and 3 (or more) packs of artificial sweetener.  Top with 1/4 ounce crushed almonds mixed with 1/2 cup of crushed Fiber 1.

330-370 calories, 33 grams of protein, alot of fiber and some healthy fat.

Super easy  Cheesy
   careful not to over-bake



Baked Stuffed Chicken

    * 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), divided
    * 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
    * 3 large cloves garlic, finely chopped, divided
    * 1 box organic chopped spinach (10 ounces), thawed
    * Salt and pepper
    * Freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
    * 3 tablespoons butter
    * 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
    * 1 teaspoon dried oregano (about 1/3 palmful)
    * 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    * 1/2 cup crumbled Greek feta cheese

Preparation

Pre-heat the oven to 425F.

Heat 1 tablespoon EVOO, one turn of the pan, in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and two-thirds of the garlic and cook until softened, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool, then add the spinach and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Melt the butter in the same pan, turn off the heat and add the panko, oregano and remaining garlic; toss.

Drizzle a baking dish with the remaining 1 tablespoon EVOO. Split each chicken breast across (but not all the way through) and open like a book. Stuff with the spinach and feta, letting the stuffing overflow at the edges. Place the chicken pieces in the baking dish and top with the breadcrumbs. Bake until the juices run clear; about 20 minutes
