The Recipe Thread !

I'm not sure. I wouldn't suspect there is one, except if you are violating copyright. Most of these I have posted, as I mentioned earlier came from other sources.
My contribution....

Red Beans and Rice

1 Package (14 oz) of Healthy Choice Smoked Sausage
Garlic (Depends on the person)
2 Small/Medium Green Bell Peppers chopped
2 Small/Medium Tomatoes chopped
1 Large Onion chopped
2 Cans of Light Red Kidney Beans drained
1/2 Tablespoon Thyme Flakes
1 ½ Tablespoon of Cayenne (Red) Pepper

In large skillet heat on Medium High. Cut sausage into half inch pieces and cook until browned. Add chopped onions and garlic. Cook until onions are translucent. Then add bell peppers and cook until peppers are a bit tender. Next add tomatoes (with juices) and kidney beans (drained), also add the thyme and cayenne pepper reduce heat to low and let simmer about 5 minutes.

Cook 3 cups of brown rice to go with this. Makes a great meal.

HSN Prime Plus Power Pop

Ok, I tried this on a whim the other night and it turned out Ok. Kinda like a fudgesicle but not.

A cool refreshing treat for the summer.

2 scoop Prime Plus
1 Cup Skim Milk

Mix very well and pour into Popsicle Mold add a stick of your choice and freeze, I let it freeze ovenight. Made two pops, I had small molds. Not nearly as good as a Captain Crunch Bar (man I miss those)but it'll do.

Calories per pop, depends on size of mold-133
LOL awesome idea... If you like your shakes with water like I do I bet the pops would come out a little "smoother" then using milk. Although your using skim milk so it may not be much smoother but worth the shot.

Bodybuilder Waffles
Here is a recipe that I have used for awhile. I make these waffles at least 3 times/wk. They are pretty good.

1 cup plain oatmeal
1/2 cup 1% milk
4 egg whites
2 whole eggs
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons Splenda
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Just dump all this stuff in the blender and run it on any setting for about 20 seconds. Pour it on your waffle iron and enjoy. You can make pancakes with this too.

Calories: 550
Protein: 42g

Drink with a big glass of milk and you've got yourself about 700calories of muscle building goodness!

Spray with calorie free "butter" and enjoy.
my protein shake (chocolate) tastes pretty good like chocolate milk after a few hours in the fridge

I'll use the HSN protein for this recipe:

2 scoops chocolate whey protein
20 oz water
12 oz skim milk
shake well, put in fridge for at least an hour, before consuming shake it again!

I finally got around to making the Whey Chocolate Pancakes this morning. I have a little bit of tweaking to do, but here's how it goes:

1.5 cups Pancake Mix
1.5 cup milk
2 egg
2 standard scoops of Protein Powder
1 tbsp Cinammon
1 tbsp Vanilla Extract

*Pancake Mix and Milk should be of near even quantities, can alter 1/4 cup each way for thickness
**I added Chocolate Blueberries for some sweetness

YIELDS: 8 pancakes (1/4 cup of batter per)

Sugar free syrup is nice, depending on what the sweetener is: many use Aspartame. I just like to hit the honey when it comes to a griddle cake. My liver can stand a little glycogen.
Adding protein powder to pancakes is the best. Even the chocolate stuff doesn't change the taste of a regular pancake/waffle.
In light of Lent, I have prepared a nice seafood feast for today. It taste great and is chalk full of protein!

I call it my Tilapia Stuffing!

16 oz Tilapia
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tbsp Parmesan Cheese
2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

Cook the Tilapa in a tablespoon of Olive Oil. Once it is thoroughly cooked, add the balsamic vinegar dressing to get everything from the bottom of the pan. Add the other tablespoon of olive oil, bread crumbs, and cheese. Mix, cook for a couple minutes, and serve!

I only count 1 tbsp of Olive Oil and no vinegar in the calories due to the cooking....

My girlfriend just told me this is how she used to eat eggs when she was a kid, I might give it a try when I get some condensed milk . . . not sure if I'll like it though!

Pour boiling water into a cup (about 3/4 full)
Pour in Condensed milk
Crack eggs and whisk

Drink it down!!!

The egg won't be fully cooked . . . .
(chunky34 @ Dec. 20 2004,12:38)</div><div id="QUOTEHEAD">QUOTE</div><div id="QUOTE">Chunky's Bar :

4 cup of raw oatmeal
4 scoop protein
9-10 tbs of canola oil, flax oil etc.
3 cup of skim milk
You can add cinnamon, splenda, vanilla essence and other stuff for the taste.

Mix these ingredients well together, and cook at 350 degres during 45 minutes. After this, let the bars cool down and put to the fridge for 6-8 hours (I dont know if after couple of hours only it could be alright...)


I cut the result in 10 bars, and each one give me about 20g of protein, 30g of carbs and 6g of fat.</div>
I made power bars last night as I used way too much peanut butter and not enough granola. One of them packs over 400 calories!

2 5oz. cans chunk light tuna (250 cal/50g prot/5g fat)

1 tbs Miracle Whip Light (optional) (37 cal/0g prot/3g fat)
1/4 cup chopped carrot (13 cal/0g prot/0g fat)
1/4 cup chopped celery (4 cal/0g prot/0g fat)
1/4 cup chopped onion (17 cal/0g prot/0g fat)

Combine all ingredients and mix well.

You can substitute chicken for the tuna and have the same nutritional values.
