Eating Well

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

So my fiancee and I are working on eating healthier. It's definitely easier when football season is over...but I've found that she's been doing the majority of the cooking. I know my way around the kitchen but I make guy food. Can anyone recommend a place to find recipes that might fit my wheel house but also help us monitor our caloric intake (along with everything else)?

 

I'm definitely willing to trade recipes if you need / want some new ideas...

 

PS - she found this dope ass recipe for "French Bread" pizza where the crust is zucchini.

Hi newcomer, what kinds of foods do you like to eat and what are you interested in making? People have different concepts of what healthy food means for example are you thinking more veggies? Healthier versions of guy food? Low fat? Low carb? Grain free? Let us know more about you.

If it's low carb, grain-free and/or gluten-free you're looking at doing, I can be of assistance!

I would advise against a low fat diet. Instead of worrying about the QUANTITY of fats you consume, simply concern yourself with the QUALITY of the fats; stick to the healthy, pure, natural fats (eg. ghee, extra virgin olive oil, extra virgin coconut oil) and avoid vegetable-based oils, margarine etc which are heavily processed. Contrary to popular belief, consuming fat isn't going to make you fat...

Explore new vegetables and think about the amount you eat. When I was teaching/coaching boxing, I would ask the person who was worried about calories(note: I have never counted calories) to cook an entire week of asian style dishes. Fried rice, lo mein, glass noodles, stir fry, etc. with lots of vegetables and just a small amount of protein(pork, beef, shrimp) It seemed to get their minds right about what you actually need to be satisfied mentally first.

I've started paying attention to eating a little healthier. 
 
- I eat more raw veggies (cabbage salad, shredded carrots, shredded beets, spinach or kale salads, tomatoes, avocados etc etc...). 
- I eat more veggies
- I eat less meat (only once a day instead of both lunch and dinner, and in smaller quantities). 
- I eat more legumes: beans, chickpeas, lentils. 
- I eat more raw fruits: apples, mangoes, pineapples, berries, grapefruits, kumquats etc...
 
I started doing this for health reason, and not to lose weight - but in the process I've lost a good amount of weight, and I feel much better.
