Christy, it's funny that you mention the triticale berries & wheat berries, since I just set aside a recipe for a black bean, edamame, and wheatberry recipe. I'd be like your DH - snooping around the cooking pot, hoping for a bite, LOL.

NYCNative-cocount curry broth sounds divine!

I cooked up some triticale berries today and made a salad with them for lunch tomorrow. They seem to be much the same as wheat berries. We'll see if the salad is any good. DH kept wanting to know what I was boiling on the stove "all day". emoticon

Christy, thanks for the recipe. As it turned out, DH had volunteered us (and by that,I mean, "me", lol) taco salad for the party. But I'll make the carne asada tacos soon - it sounds perfect for the spring!

Speaking of Thai coconut curry, I got a box of coconut curry broth yesterday, and I think I'll make a batch of chickpeas, carrots and cauliflower with that.

EMiller - the chicken soup came out really good!

I love wheat berries! I wish they didn't take so long to cook! Although, I suppose I could do them in my pressure cooker... hmmm....

I cooked up a storm this weekend - no real "meals" but lots of stuff that can be used quickly... millet, brown rice, green lentils cooked with fennel, which tastes fantastic! And a pot of black eyed peas!

NYCNative-sorry I didnít get back to you about the recipe for the carne asada tacos. But there isnít a recipe. We buy the thin sliced carne asada, dh grills it then we slice it real thin and finish it off in the frying pan with some taco seasoning. Cabbage, cilantro, onion, salsa and a squeeze of fresh lime with the meat in a corn shell and viola!

Emiller-I love my steel cut oats! I buy them in bulk and the variety I get only takes about 15 minutes to cook. I generally cook up a batch on Sunday, divvy it up into individual serving containers and eat it during the week.

I made a roasted onion, wheat berry & chickpea salad last week and it was so yummy. I cooked up the wheat berries then chop an onion and roast in the oven for about 30 minutes. Add the cooked wheat berries and some chickpeas and cook another 30 minutes. I was afraid it was going to be bland but it was really good.

Iím cooking up that Thai Coconut Curry shrimp tonight for dinner and then I found a recipe for chicken pot pie soup off Ginaís skinny recipes website that Iíll be trying later in the week.

I LOVE steel-cut oats! And yes, you can pre-make a batch and serve them throughout the week. I usually boil some water the night before I serve them, add the oats and soak them overnight. I take them out of the fridge the next day, and heat them up in a microwave for a minute or two when I'm about to eat.

Supper tonight is chicken soup. I made it extra-special by roasting my cut-up turnips, carrots and red potatoes w/olive oil and seasonings before simmering them in the soup. I added spaetzle to make DH a happy camper, but also threw in lots of chopped turnip greens. It's looking quite pretty right now.

I finally tried them myself this week. But I found *quick cooking* steel cut oats. They only take about 10 minutes. I just can't get over how tiny the serving size is. It makes me want to add at least 3 large bananas....LOL

Does anybody here eat steel cut oats? I'm probably like the only one that hasn't tried them yet. I'd really love to but heard it takes an eternity to make. Can you pre-make a batch and eat throughout the week?

I made a vegetarian meatloaf for dinner tonight. It was really good! I could have used a vegan substitute for the egg, but I was lazy. We had it with a very nice tossed salad. The bulk of it was lentils and steel cut oats...a good way to refuel.

The quinoa sounds really, really good. My tummy's rumbling. emoticon

Today's fasting went pretty well, all things considered. I'm finally settling down to my first official meal of the day: roasted beets on a bed of greens with goat cheese, and balsamic vinegar; salmon burgers; roasted broccoli. And I have steel cut oats and blueberries waiting for me tomorrow morning!

That sounds good! I am googling chickpea pancakes right now! Love the chickpea!

Over the weekend I made quinoa with cumin and chili powder. When it was finished cooking, I added in sauteed onions, corn and red kidney beans and grated some reduced fat cheddar cheese.

Last night, I made whole barley (not the pearled variety) and added sauteed onions, mushrooms, collards and a can of tomatoes and soy crumbles.

I was on fire in the kitchen this weekend! I made a big pot of lima beans.. my favorites! No idea what to do with them, but I think they're even good plain!

I made a vegetarian green split pea soup - so easy, just split peas, onions and veggie broth! Then I made a yellow split pea soup the same way, but with Indian spices. Finally, I made a vindaloo sauce (spicy tomato and vinegar with Indian spices) for shrimp and ate that over spaghetti squash.

It was great, but I used spaghetti squash instead of rice since the BF wants to avoid carbs... then I got yelled at this AM for not providing any carbs.... someone was carb deprived and grouchy!

Christy, what recipe did you use for the carne asada tacos? I'm bringing a Mexican dish to a party this weekend (named "Cinco de Marcho" emoticon ), and I'm stumped as to what to make!

My post-workout meal was very nice today. I made a protein smoothie with frozen bananas, a clementine, and vanilla ice cream-flavored protein powder. I blended it up, and it reminds me of the stuff I used to get from Orange Julius. Yum.

Joyce, too bad your hubby is not a hot and spicy kind of guy!!

Suezette - tofu by itself doesn't have too much of a taste, so it's all about the marinade!

Last night, I made some tuna steaks, but the real star of the meal was broccoli rabe. MMMM, SO GOOD! I braised it with some garlic and olive oil and we ate the entire enormous bunch between the two of us!

Sharon, the tofu recipe sounds fabulous! I like putting lots of hot sauce on mine as well - I just love spicy stuff. Too bad the recipe would only be for me. My DH isn't fond of curries or spice. Even taking him to a Thai restaurant is an ordeal, LOL. If I marinate the tofu only in the soy sauce plus a little ginger, though, he'll eat it.

I'm relieved I don't have to cook today. There are more than enough leftovers in the fridge,phew! However, I'm baking scones. I'm looking forward to having that for breakfast tomorrow. :-)

The tofu came out GREAT!!!

I had marinated it in some soy sauce, garlic and two different types of hot sauce. When I got home, I drained it and then added a handful of whole wheat flour and a handful of brewer's yeast to the container and shook to coat.

I then sprayed a pan with non stick spray and added the tofu cubes and cooked till they were brown. Then I removed them from the pan and made a sauce of skim milk and red thai curry paste. I added some steamed broccoli florets and then added the tofu back to the pan. I served it over brown rice I had made a few days ago with Indian spices.

OMG, it was SO good! It would have been better if the tofu were in larger pieces, but the BF bought a container of it already cubed.

I love steel cut oats! I usually make up a batch on Sunday's, divide it into individual containers and then have one each morning. I'm really enjoying the blueberries right now,

To go with the 8" of fresh snow we have I'm making a chicken soup for dinner. Onions, garlice, carrots, mushrooms, broccoli, a some left over white rice and some brown rice pasta just to use it up. I'll see what else I can dig up that needs used up to toss in it too.

I forgot to mention that I got up even earlier than usual this morning so that I could make Irish oatmeal (steel-cut oats). It's so worth the effort. They're the only whole grains that DH will eat, too, besides brown rice. Ours were topped with sliced almonds and fresh blueberries, though I also threw in vanilla protein powder in my serving.

Elisa, throw tortillas into a recipe, and I'm so there. :D

Sharon, Bittman's tofu recipe is da bomb. I usually hate making desserts, at least the cake variety, but this I'll go out of my way to make.

Oh I love tofu. I saw a recipe for a tofu scramble and it looks delicious! It really looked like scrambled eggs as well.

Last night we had grilled chicken wraps made with Ken's Lite Honey Mustard dressing, La Tortilla shells, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and alfalfa sprouts. Not sure what to do tonight.

I'm trying tofu tonight. I have never had success, but I found two good recipes... one for oven baked, and another for "breaded" (with nutritional yeast) and pan fried. So the cubes are marinating and I'll decide how to do it when I get home!

Suezette, here's the recipe:

ut-curry-shrimp.html


I added just a touch of brown sugar, maybe a couple of teaspoons just to add a bit of sweetness to it. Other than that, I followed the directions and it came out very good! Next time I think I will add veggies, like bell peppers and bamboo shoots.

Btw there are some great recipes and fantastic photos on that site!

I used my veggies to do a stirfry. I cooked up tofu and put that in also. I used Chef Meg's recipe that was featured a few days ago. A ginger garlic sauce. I added that to the veggies after they cooked down and we had it over rice. Very good!

Also doing chicken soup tonight for dinner. I have a bunch of veggies to use, and just felt throwing them all into one pot. I'm too tired to cook. Can't wait to eat it...

Rough week for me at work... lots of late nights. Had a veggie burger the other night and then last night a whole wheat tortilla with tomatoes, soy crumbles and mozzarella cheese on top.

I made home made chicken soup as DH wasn't feeling too good the last couple days. I've also been eating lots of fruits and veggies to get me back on track. Seems to be working so far.

DH is cooking up antelope kabobs. He marinated the antelope in a Hawaiian Luau marinade and added pineapple, onion and mushrooms. I have a pot of brown rice on the stove to go along with it.

Your ratatouille sounds great! I love veggies and it looks like all my favs are in your dish. I'll have to try that.

The artichoke chicken turned out wonderful! Both my husband and I really enjoyed it. There was a bit of tang from the artichoke (not too much, it was just right), and of course the feta and garlic made it heavenly. This is definitely going in to our rotation for sure.

If you think you can, or if you think you can't, you're right.

Made a variation on ratatouille tonight. Chopped up eggplant, yellow squash, zucchini, onions, mushrooms and poured a huge can of whole tomatoes all over, plus seasoned it w/salt, pepper, basil and oregano. It smells very good, and I'll either eat it with tilapia or chicken, or save some for my pasta dinner this Friday.

Elise - Thanks for joining in our food fun! I think coming up with healthy, but yummy, recipes is the way to go in sustaining health and running goals. I make similar lunches to yours as well. I like combining protein, carbs and lots of veggies for my meals. It's filling and balanced. The artichoke chicken sounds fabulous, too. I love both, and the addition of feta makes it even better!

Hi everyone, thought I'd join this thread since I love reading recipes and anything food related, lol. I've already got so many great ideas from this thread!

Well last night I made fish chowder for the very first time. It is pretty low in calories if you use evaporated skim milk and this makes A LOT. I got it from allrecipes.com and it didn't turn out too bad although I felt like it was missing something. I think the missing component is bacon. Next time I might add some turkey or center cut bacon to it, think that might help and just adding a few strips would not add that many more calories to this dish.

Tomorrow I'm going to try an artichoke chicken with feta dish from Ginas skinny recipes using boneless skinless chicken thighs. Might serve it with a sweet potato or roasted red potatoes with asparagus.

Now this might sound totally weird to some, but sometimes what I do for lunch is add a 1/2 cup of brown rice over some baby greens or spring mix, add a half can of solid white tuna and some cucumbers and grape tomatoes. For dressing I use Paul Newman's sesame ginger and add just a tablespoon or so of that. Mix it all together. I love eating this, and sometimes what I'll even do is add a poached or over easy egg (cooked with cooking spray) on top. I know, strange but I love it!

I'm waiting for my brown basmati rice to finish cooking. That, plus lentils, are my carb-up for tomorrow's race. I also had a clementine, and I think another one for dessert will be great.

Christy - I hope your DH will be OK.
