Meal plan, guide?

Hey guys, i'm looking for a meal plan/grocery list. Was looking into buying the "dolce diet" book but reviews on amazon said it sucked. Looking for something similar to help me eat properly. But need direction.

Easy healthy recipes, lots of veggies, no red meat, etc.

You know I'm catholic..Well with it being Lent, I don't eat meat on Fridays..It is a fawking scramble every Thursday night and throughout Friday to get and find food lol.


OP - With the exception of burgers and steaks, I don't really eat red meat that often. Instead of red meat I eat organic ground turkey in everything. I cannot tell the difference in pasta, meat loaf, tacos literally everything minus steaks and burgers.

Lol at people looking for a "diet"

People are clueless. Here is your first and only clue that you need....

Eat how many calories you need per day to maintain and or lose/gain weight (depending on your goals)

I'd say >50% of the average joe you talk to, based on personal experience.

Or maybe we just evolved to eat boneless, skinless chicken breast exclusively. But what do I know

OP, glad to see you are looking for advice on cooking and what not. I have some recipes in the "what did you eat today" thread that might be pretty good for you. In the mean time, just know that you do need fats and carbs. This is a good thing because with fat and carbs needed, this will open up your choices to a LOT of different dishes. Using brown rice or whole grain pasta is a great way to have a dish that is essentially a white canvas. For example, last night, i bought 1lb of Barilla whole grain "plus" pasta and did the following

1. Made a ground meat sauce with 1lb of 94/6% beef, 1lb ground pork, 1lb ground turkey, sauteed 1/2 onion and sliced 3 cloves of garlic... cooked it down, added some red wine and a 28oz can of tomatoes, let that simmer for a while, then chopped up an entire head of kale (washed) and just threw it right in.

2. Baked chicken breast tenderloins (3lb) for 30 min, seasoned lightly with salt. Sauteed a bunch of garlic, the other half of the onion i had, and then 2 full heads of broccoli. Once the chicken was done, I shredded it, put it in the pan with the broccoli, added a little oil and < 1 cup of light cream. Mixed well, kept it on low heat, and added a huge handful of baby spinach, let that wilt down a little.

Added some fresh ground pepper and some grated cheese to each dish, then added 1/2lb of pasta to each dish. Two dishes that will last a week, and is majority protein with a decent amount of fat and carbs

Yeah, you are right. A lot of people do say red meat is bad, I think they get that info from older research that did not differentiate between processed and non processed red meat.

sorry boys, **** week at work.

I don't like red meat, I don't eat steak. Something about the texture. I'm 30 years old, had a chef gf. We tried it all, believe me doesn't work. I'll eat a hamburger and make chilli with ground beef. That's about it

Just want simple recipes for meal prep, LOVE veggies.

and I'm not looking for a diet.

I'm eating ok and know what I need to eat. Just looking for ideas of foods that can be cooked in big batches as I like to cook on sundays and thursdays. so my food needs to last 3-4 days.

Example last week I made a batch of lean ground beef, lots of veggies in it, beans and some spices. Ate that by itself or with quinoa for lunch a few days. Loved it.

Or I bake a few breasts of chicken with 2 heads of broccoli and enjoy that. But it's repetitive. So looking for more ideas.

My Ride: E46 M3 Manual
1lb grass-fed beef 85%, 1lb ground turkey breast 99% lean
1lb red potato
.5lb carrots
1 big onion
2 tomatoes
a packet of taco mix spices (if a large packet use 3tbs)
2tbs cumin
1tb turmeric
1tbs salt

I get all above veggies organic.

cut potato in slices with onion, add 2 cups water. Put in big porcelain pot, cover, microwave for 23min.

put 2tbs olive oil, on med heat, cook meats. Once it gets pink add tomatoes and spices. Remove off heat until potatoes are done.

Add potatoes to meat, cover for 10min on low med heat. When done, let it sit uncovered for 10min. Add Greek yogurt on top, thank me. This lasts me for a couple of days, I never get sick of it.

You can mix and match different ground meets, lamb, bison, turkey, beef, chicken, etc...

sounds good, reminds me of a meal my mom makes. I'll ask her recipe but I'll replace the potatoes with sweet potato for that extra good carb baby

I suggest reading books such as "Fat Chance" and "The Blood Sugar Solution".
You'll learn how your body processes food.
Then you'll know to "eat real food" and not the processed crap offered so often today. do not "diet" but eat a healthy diet.
good luck
