nutritious foods or recipes

Recommended Posts

Katy, maybe you could indicate what you're looking for. Vegetarian? Vegan? Meat? Fish?

Also, do you have any food allergies to gluten, peanuts, dairy products or soy?

Are you looking for cooked main dishes? Soups? Salads? Easy sandwiches?

Do you know any basic cooking skills? Do you have a stove, pots & pans, and cooking implements? Are you on a budget? Do you need to watch your intake of fat, carbs, or fiber?

What each of us considers nutritious varies widely. Maybe you could be more specific about what you like to eat and are able to eat, and then you'll have everyone here posting recipes.

Okay, well, there are a LOT of people here who like to cook and like to eat, so I'm sure you'll get recipes.

I'm posting a link to a food thread that I started a long time ago. I began it with four of my favorite soup recipes. They are all inexpensive to make, and three of the four can be vegetarian or you can add meat. They all have beans or lentils and vegetables, so they're all good in terms of fiber. If you leave the meat out of all of them, they are also low fat. Here's the link:


Here's a link to a blog that Air Marshall set up for us to share recipes in the blog section:


He was kind enough to paste links to several threads about food, including the recipe thread listed above.

On the food blog, people posted all sorts of recipes, and Air Marshall set up categories to make it easier to sort through them.

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, Spring is here and fresh veggies are on the way. This is the perfect time of year to start eating lots of salads. In hot weather, one of my favorite things to eat is a salad of arugula or mixed greens sprinkled with some toasted sesame seeds. Then I grill a pounded chicken breast on my gas grill, slice it and serve it over the salad greens with a little sesame/ginger salad dressing. (There are lots of good low-fat ones in the store if you don't want to make your own)

A few nights ago I had an arugula salad with feta cheese, dried apricots, tomatoes, and toasted pumpkin seeds. It was excellent, and gave me some ideas for salads to make in the weeks to come.

I hope the recipes in those threads I listed will give you something to start with. Good luck!

Since this IS the alternatives board, I'll suggest looking for recipes that that show how to substitute things like flaxseed for oil/flour in regular recipes.

Recipes that allow you to go a little overboard on cinnamon, ginger, or turmeric might be useful.

Neat fiber trick: make your standard fruit smoothies with tofu or bananas as a base, but add a 1/2 cup oatmeal to the blend as well. It's fairly flavor-neutral, lowers the glycemic index (usually good for MI, as bouncy blood sugar is usually bad for MI), adds fiber, and it's kind of neat the way it almost "sets up" overnight in the refrigerator.

Extra-dark chocolate, the > 70% cacao kind, is tasty, loaded with antioxidants, and a good dietary source of phenethylamine (which probably does little good taken orally if not on an MAOI, but who really cares?)
