Fast, Easy, Good, and Low Cal


Recommended Posts

I am not a cook. Not by a long shot. I need a few things that dont take anytime, that I can microwave or easy to make in the oven, that are high protein/low carb/low fat, and delicious! And I dont want it to take long. Any ideas?

:D i rarely do nutritional breakdowns.... i will come up with some for you, it's just a different spin for me...



off the top of my head:

- stir-fries

- salads with misc meats and fish

- (when you have time) roasted chicken with veggies



basically avoiding fatty foods and lowering grains, which is hard for me because i love noodles, rice, potatoes, etc.


types of oils can make a difference as well:

- look for ones with low saturated fat

- canola, safflower, olive are pretty good

- coconut, palm, and regular butter are not good


try to cut down on cheeses as well

I like boiled chicken brest, Very easy but takes a few minutes. Just boil some water drop some boneless skinless chicken brest in and season the hell out of the water. Very tasty, very easy :D



3 out of 4 aint bad :D

Here's what I had for dinner:


Trader Joe's frozen green beans



Sautee green beans in olive oil, add garlic. Add shrimp when beans are about done, eat.


Takes 5 minutes, healthy, lots of protein, and very tasty.
