RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
Anyone ever get a bodybuilding cookbook? That "Anabolic Cookbook" is supposed to be good. Anything recommended by Scooby gets a point in my book..

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
Garbage Stir Fry:

I've been doing this since my sophomore year of college. Basically what I do is use rice as a base, and then throw in whatever kind of meat is in my fridge. Chicken, pepperoni, salami, ham, sausage, leftover brats, etc. If I liked vegetables and peppers I would probably throw them in as well.

I usually start by scrambling some eggs in a fry pan.

Once they are cooked I throw everything else in that same pan, the rice, chicken, pepperonis, cut up brats, and then add some soy sauce to give it some flavor.

It is one of my all-time favorites.

Most of the interesting recipes are based on proteinpowders. It has some nice recipes (stuffed peppers come to mind), but IMO it's not really helpful as you can search online, freely, for "high protein - low carb/fat" recipes.

Whey protein of your choice and serving amount
And a generous amount of Metamucil Clear and Natural Fiber Powder and some milk.
Heaping scoop of peanut butter

Throw it all into a blender and in a few minutes you'll have a delicious post-workout meal that will not only keep you from feeling hungry for a couple hours but also keep you quite regular![/size]

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
Just stumbled upon this now. Made from trail and error.

I just started getting into gelatine as a supplement to help my skin.

I thought it was BS that it was packed with protein but it is 90% of a nearly compete protein profile. First time I mixed it was with hot water and lemon juice which I try to drink each morning. It tasted like donkey ass as the light taste of meat from the gelatine could be tasted. Yuk.

So today I thought about mixing it with a protein shake. I tried to dissolve it in liquid first so I used warm coconut milk. Then added my protein powder and raw cocoa powder. I added more now cold almond milk. It was kind of gritty so I blended it up. It tasted fine, just like a rich chocolate milkshake but after some short time I started to set. After about 15 mins I could barley chug it it was so thick from the gelatine setting. After a while I realized what it tasted like was Jello pudding I remember as a kid. I finished the last bit with a spoon and it was great.

So I basically made a ghetto version of Jello pudding but with way better protein profile and its a good change of pace from regular protein shakes. Tasted good too, it was a nice creamy treat.

The recipe is really simple.

Protein Pudding:

- 30 grams of Gelatine - about 3-4 tablespoons.

- Half cup of warm coconut milk (I used warm water + coconut powder. You could easily just use your 'milk' base warmed up, I personally just wanted the extra MCT fat)

- Scoop and a Half of Chocolate protein powder (you could use vanilla flavor and add high quality vanilla extract to it)

- 3 Tsp of Raw good quality Cocoa powder (they good quality stuff is rich deep almost red color, not the faded chalky color you get in cheap brands.)

- Cup and a half of Almond or Cocoanut milk (I don't drink dairy, feel free to try with regular cows milk)

+ Next Blend it up in a small blender until creamy and the grit is gone, a hand held would work also.

+ Put the mixture into a plastic bowl

+ Leave in the fridge to set (about 30 mins)

Enjoy.


It is a simple treat and the rough marcos break down like this:

50 grams of protein
12 grams of MCT fat from the coconut milk
14 grams of carbs
Lots of Iron, Vitamin E

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
Here's one for the sweet tooth.

Banana Ice Cream Base

1 frozen banana
1 - 2 teaspoon of full cream milk

Just chop up the frozen banana and put in food processor and blend away, adding milk slowly and mix till smooth.

You can add anything to the base to suit taste. I made a batch of these with Peanut butter and choc chip. Gonna try it with Greek Yogurt blended in to see if it gets creamier.

To bulk up protein content with each serving, just add your choice of protein powder, then milk to remove the clumps and blend till smooth.

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
This is just a scrambled eggs recipe but it is simple and infinitely better than any other scrambled eggs I have ever had:

All you need is eggs, butter, and some sour cream/creme freche (optional)





The trick is cook it on low heat and continually stir it. It gives it a nice creamy consistency instead of clumps like the typical scramble egg.

peppers and onions to your desire
2 bags of boil in te bag rice, I think they are about a cup of rice a piece

Fry it all up, takes about 15 minutes. Probably around 2bucks a serving, delicious.
The only thing I have found is thats not very filling. I can easily eat a couple big bowls of this and an hour later I'm hungry again. My hunger might just be insane lately though.


A protein shake w/ creatine recipe:

One green apple
One scoop vanilla protein
5g creatine
some ice
little bit of water, so it actually blends.

Blend it all together, drink. It tastes delicious and the sugary carbs from the apple spikes your blood sugar levels which allows the creatine to absord faster (or maybe thats just broscience?) and also wakes you up. Its a good morning shake for the road after you down a few eggs.

I'm gonna try that protein pudding recipe. Where is gelatin normally found in the supermarket?

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
Giving your chill a try with ground turkey right now Anti.

I'll bite on a recipe I use every morning because I got sick of drinking egg whites and eating a cup of raw oatmeal everyday.

Epic's Morning Juice/Shake

2-3 leaves of kale
10-15 baby carrots
1 cored apple
half large cucumber
2 stalks of celery
half a lemon (squeeze juice into shake)
half carton of egg whites
half-3/4 cup oatmeal
frozen berries (I prefer strawberries or black berries)
Scoop of whey
3/4 cup 0% greek yogurt
5-7 cubes of ice
(I occasionally add a cap of olive oil)

Blend all this up in a blender, it will make between 1.5-2L of liquid.

Sit down and enjoy, takes about 20 minutes to make and consume. You will feel bloated after drinking it, but that feeling goes away in 5-10 minutes, and you just ingested your daily vegetables to kick off the morning.

Macros are about 65 g protein, 45 g carb, and maybe 10 g fat. Calories are in the neighbourhood of 800-900.

Made these again yesterday and absolutely loved it.

Mayo-Free Egg Mayo Lol

4-6 eggs
Red onions, minced
Gherkins (Pickled Cucumbers), minced
Red Chillis, minced
Fresh herbs (I used basil), minced
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Just hard-boil the eggs, mash and mix in the other ingredients, and slowly add olive oil to blend and hold it all together.

Chill in fridge and serve with crackers or toast.

Beats plain old hard boiled eggs.

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
I get a lot of free ground beef from my uncles farm and have always looked for new ways to make high-protein, low-carb meals with it. Unfortunately most recipes on the web are pastas. Even the burritos I had been making have a ridiculous amount of carbs in the wraps, and I don't want that.

I always thought meatloaf would taste like shit, but I finally took the dive.

General Mayhem's Spicey Meatloaf

1lb Ground beef
1/2 cup of Panko breadcrumbs
1 Large egg
Salt and Pepper
Chili Power
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

Mix all of this shit up in a bowl and then form it in a pan.

I cooked it on 350 for an hour and ten minutes and it turned out perfect.

If you wanted to add ketchup or BBQ go ahead. I tried to keep the calories low so I left them out. The spices give it plenty of flavor. I also left out chopped onions or peppers because I hate them in my food. I really just wanted a way to eat a chunk of meat, and this turned out to be it.

Cheers.

Tree's Shrimp and Spinach
  • 1/2 pound shrimp
  • Coconut oil or grass-fed butter
  • A couple handfuls of spinach
  • half a chopped onion (optional); Tbsp of minced garlic (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sriracha (optional)

Get your skillet or pan, and set the heat on your stove top to medium-high. Let the butter/oil melt. If you opted for the onions and minced garlic, toss those in the pan once the oil/butter is ready and sautee them for a couple minutes. After your onions & garlic have sauteed, throw your shrimp into the pan. I just get the pre-packaged cooked shrimped from the frozen part of the seafood section. I remove the tails, the shrimp are already peeled and deveined. Let those cook a couple minutes just to warm them up. Add some salt and pepper to them if you want. Next, throw your handfuls of spinach into the pan. As much spinach as you want. Once the spinach begins to wilt, you can add in more spinach since the wilted spinach takes up less space. Salt and pepper the concoction again. Once all of the spinach added has wilted, I then like to add a bunch of sriracha sauce into it. I give it a couple stirs after the sriracha has been added and voila! You have a high protein, low carb meal that is light, tastes great, and doesnt take long at all to make (<15 minutes).

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
brocolli and tuna baked potatoes using microwave for a quick prep:

Ingredients:

2 Large baking potatoes
10oz box of frozen broccoli
1 can tuna
Some shredded cheese
Mayo optional

Prep:

1.) Poke holes in potatoes and cook for 8 minutes.
2.) Cook frozen brocoli for 3 minutes (you want brocoli that is easily cut with a fork, adjust time as required).
3.) Mix together broccoli and tuna in large mixing bowl. Sprinkle in shredded cheese. Add mayo if desired, just note this will take an almost fat free meal and introduce the deliciousness of fat.
4.) Cut baked potatoes, spoon in the mixture.
5.) Enjoy


Super quick filling meal. Two baked potato meal costs around $3. Feel free to only do one potato and keep the mixture in the fridge for when you want a quick healthy snack.

edit - I also just throw together enigmas pulled pork recipe in the process of waiting for the potatoes to cook.

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
Now what is good about Mexico aside from its women is its cheap and filling staple foods that if you tweak can be very good meals for body building. I don't know if you would call these "Tex-Mex" my old homie from Mexico just basically broke down the most basics of tacos and its just having a good seasoned and soft protein, good fresh salsa, some onions, maybe a crema/fat or salt type competent on top, and a garnish like onion or something. Very basic shit. They start to taste like shit when you complicate things, they are best the most simple as possible.

I like hood and peasant immigrant staples. Because they are cheap and get the job done. These tacos are literally only 3-4 steps and impossible to mess up. For me personally I get good clean energy from corn tortillas and have had many good workouts using them as fuel carbs, and they are good post workout carbs too and it is easy to control portion wise.

TACOS

Meat:

Take some chicken thighs. If your rolling in that cash money you can get them already boneless and skinless (if so then sear them quickly before baking for a bit more flavor, if not just use regular with skin and bone).

1 kilo of Chicken Thighs (roughly 6-8 depending on the size of them)

Seasoning option 1:

Use your favourate mexican style base that ideally is salt-free like a Tex-Mex or Chiplote Miss Dash for example.

[Image: Mrs-Dash-Southwest-Chipotle-Seasoning-Bl...deSize=258]

It is best to use no-salt seasonings so you can control your sodium.

Add Salt and Black peeper to taste to your Miss Dash/No-Salt Seasoning to round it out. If you have regular stuff, just don't add any more salt. Simple.

That is the easy way, if you want more control of flavor and to add your own style continue below, if not skip this part.

Seasoning Option 2:


I personally just make my own mix which usually is this:

Kosher Salt
Sugar
Smoked Paprika
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Chili Powder
Cracked Black Pepper
Oregano
Bay Leaf Powder (or just use the leaves and stick them under the skins
Chili Flakes

Optional - Adobe Peppers in a can (use half a can).

Put a table spoon of each into a bowl except for the salt and sugar. Add a teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of sugar to start and adjust those two to your own preference. Taste the powder to make sure you have it right.

Put the mixture over the chicken and get it under the skin and all over.

Optional: If you want you can leave this overnight to marinate. Add olive oil, a little lime juice so it does not dry out.

Cooking:

- Now just pre-heat the overn at 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Just bake them bitches until they are cooked which should take 35mins, you can temp them if your a health nazi, or just wait until the meat starts to pull away from the bone and the bones are clear/brown. Meat is done.

PREP:

While your meat is cooking warm up some corn tortilla in a dry hot frying pan for 15 seconds each side a tortilla. Warm up as many as you like. Maybe 6-10. Keep them warm under a kitchen towel on plate.

- Cut up some red onion, or use green onions or chives (I personally like green onions or chives as I don't like the strong flavor of raw onion in my mouth.. even though it does taste the best, your choice).

Take some tomatillo sauce/Salsa Verde/ Green Mexican sauce. Get good stuff no shitty Ol Del Paso.

[Image: salsa-verde_20090725_0121-450x337.jpg]
[Image: 5EB0093A.jpg]

Optional - Add cilantro.

Hardest part:

Now get all your ingredients together --> Make Tacos --> Eat them.

---

In its most basic most quick steps this recipe takes 45mins to a hour max to cook and stuff in your face. You can make it more fancy if you choose to but even if you do it is still a cheap and efficient meal no matter if you make your own spices, marinate, etc or not.

Costs:


1 Kilo of Chicken thighs for a good price in Canada is $5-6. In the States its probably $3-4.

Spices - Miss Dash or other Season base = $3-4; you make your own.. $0.50.

Corn Tortillas - These are basically free they are so cheap it seems. You can find a pack of like 40 of them for like $2.00. Toiler paper costs more for fuck sucks.

Salsa - even good shit is like $2-3 for a bottle/container if you look in the Mexican/immigrant section or go to a Latin Grocer. Crap like Old Del Paso/Pace is more expensive and tastes like shit.

The whole meal costs you $5-6 max, way less if you use drumsticks, and you can get the costs down to below $4.


Marcos (estimates):

6 Tacos -

Protein 90 grams
Carbs - 66 grams
Fat (if you remove the skins.. I don't) - 18 grams

- Add a spinach tomato salad and tomato juice on the side to round out the meal.

Troll instagram and women by making a nice one, putting a lime wedge and a garnish of cilantro and call your self a chef. Hipsters pay $25 for what you just made, just remember that.

Cheers.

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
^ I've been making tacos recently also, but I slow cook the chicken or pork and shred it.

I use a homemade salsa too. Just dice some onions, tomatoes, and a tiny bit of cilantro, throw it in a tupperware, squeeze a little lime and a hint of salt and pepper. Also can dice a hot pepper and add a little of that for some kick (or even just the seeds).

Voila. Fresh salsa. It's best if you do that when you first start the slow cooker and let it sit in the fridge.

Guacamole is pretty much the same deal, you just add avocado and mush it a bit after you're done. Tomatoes are optional.

When your meat is ready, just throw a little in the shell, top it with some salsa, cheese, and whatever else you want.

Last week, I bought these taco bowls that I found at the grocery store. Threw some shredded chicken on the bottom, then some brown rice, then black beans, then topped it all off with some salsa and shredded cheese. Fucking delicious.

You could do the same idea with some burritos, it's just hard to find soft tortilla shells here so I went with the bowls.

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
If you have a pressure cooker you can make a stew in 20-30 minutes.

I've got the 7 quart Kuhn Rikon Duromatic, it's definitely one of the best investments I have ever made in cooking for myself. It's a real game changer for me, I can cook enough food for a couple days and bring it to work in pyrex bowls.

[Image: kuhn-rikon-duromatic-top-pressure-cooker-3918-popup.jpg]

A decent sized stew (about 4.5 quarts) lasts me a couple days. I got the idea for stews from Jamie Lewis off his Chaos and Pain blog. If you're curious, you can google "stew-roids" and you'll find his series on them. I never had any luck cooking stew with a crockpot, but the pressure cooker has been nothing but awesome for cooking gigantic batches of savory stew. It's perfect for the winter, I bring two bowls to work every day.

Easy pressure cooker stew recipe
- A couple lbs of whatever meat you have lying around. I have used ham, pork loin, beef, chicken, even bacon works (it's fatty as hell though). If you want the meat to have more flavor, sear it in a pan first. Pressure cooking makes the meat tender.
- 6-8 decent sized potatoes, quartered
- a bag of baby carrots (I like them because I don't have to cut them up)
- 6-8 stalks celery, chopped
- a large onion
- a package of dry onion soup mix, chicken or beef bouillon cubes are optional.
- enough water to about cover the contents of the stew.
- whatever spices you want to add. I like a shit ton of pepper, garlic and Mrs. Dash

Directions
Put all the ingredients in the pot, nothing fancy here.
Cook on high on the stovetop until it is almost boiling, then put the lid on it
Bring it up the pressure for 2 bars (I think that's 15 psi, depending on what model you're using, I've only ever used my kuhn rikon duromatic)
Cook for 18 minutes at 15 psi. Once you bring it up to pressure, you need very little stovetop heat to maintain a proper cooking temperature.
Use the cold water release method to rapidly bring down the pressure.
Serve
Optional : If you want to thicken the stew, you can add corn starch and mix it well until you hit the desired consistency. If you don't like corn starch, you can use a mixture of flour and butter or simply mash a potato and throw it back in the stew.

“I have a very simple rule when it comes to management: hire the best people from your competitors, pay them more than they were earning, and give them bonuses and incentives based on their performance. That’s how you build a first-class operation.”

Fry it all up, takes about 15 minutes. Probably around 2bucks a serving, delicious.
The only thing I have found is thats not very filling. I can easily eat a couple big bowls of this and an hour later I'm hungry again. My hunger might just be insane lately though.


Just finished making Anti's recipe! Turned out great. I considered adding pasta sauce but decided against it. I like fresh rice and this is easily a few days worth of food so I didnt add any in. Just going to throw some rice in the rice cooker and fix myself a bowl when I want some.

I used 4 hot italian sausages this time around. Next time I will use a few more because that was the best part for me and some extra protein wont hurt. I also mixed in some sriracha sauce to add some flavour. Overall enjoyable, quick, easy and fits into my diet nicely.

Gotta try some more of these recipes out. Thanks Anti +1

Ingredients:

2 Large baking potatoes
10oz box of frozen broccoli
1 can tuna
Some shredded cheese
Mayo optional

Prep:

1.) Poke holes in potatoes and cook for 8 minutes.
2.) Cook frozen brocoli for 3 minutes (you want brocoli that is easily cut with a fork, adjust time as required).
3.) Mix together broccoli and tuna in large mixing bowl. Sprinkle in shredded cheese. Add mayo if desired, just note this will take an almost fat free meal and introduce the deliciousness of fat.
4.) Cut baked potatoes, spoon in the mixture.
5.) Enjoy


Super quick filling meal. Two baked potato meal costs around $3. Feel free to only do one potato and keep the mixture in the fridge for when you want a quick healthy snack.

edit - I also just throw together enigmas pulled pork recipe in the process of waiting for the potatoes to cook.

Made a variation of this the other night.

3 potatos
olive oil
salt
2 cans of tuna
1 1/2 cup of broccoli
mayo
sriracha
grated cheddar

Poked holes in the potato with a fork. Rubbed the potatos in olive oil, sprinkled with salt. Baked for 75 mins at 350. Mixed up 2 cans of tuna, broccoli, mayo and sriracha(I used quite a bit, maybe a tablespoon, next time will use even more) in a bowl. Cut potatos in half and spooned out the potato, leaving just the skin and a little bit of the meat. Mixed that into the tuna/broccoli and spooned it back into the skins. Topped with cheddar and back into the oven until cheese melted.

Turned out great, tasty and cheap. Will have to skip the mayo next time and see how it tastes.

I made a brocolli/squash/tuna "paste" the other night for the baked potato recipe. Just heat the broccoli and squash up, throw in the a blender with just a bit of milk. Blend it all up, put in serving bowl and add the tuna.

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
So I've been experimenting with dry cooking in the crock pot lately.

Grab some root veggies, like some sweet potatoes. You can cut them into chunks, but I just wash the skin (don't dry) and throw a couple in the bottom of the pot whole. You can also throw some small, peeled onions down there.

Stack your meat on top and season then cut that baby on. I like to cook for maybe 4 to 6 hours, then finish it with a couple hours on high. That will give the outside of the meat a nice crispy, well-done consistency while the inside will be nice and juicy and tender. I personally love this consistency for meat and this method pulls it off perfectly.

I did this with chicken drumsticks and it was so good. Just seasoned them with salt, pepper, Italian herbs, and some minced garlic and had perfect, rotisserie-styled baked chicken with some delicious baked potatoes to go with them. The meat closest to the walls of the pot gets that nice, dark brown skin, then I saved the rest for leftovers and gave them a light pan fry in a little olive oil to reheat and got some amazing skin that way also.

I was reading that you can just throw a whole chicken in there, but that's one of the cheap, local specialties here so I haven't bothered. Definitely could be a good choice for guys who can't pick up a whole rotisserie style chicken down the street for $4 though.

Also did it with the pulled pork recipe, minus the beer. It comes out a little drier and crispier (but still very tender), retains more of the seasoning, and actually shreds slightly better since it doesn't have that tendency to come off in chunks. Its definitely a nice change of pace (and overall easier to prepare/prep), but I still love the wet too.

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
I'll never boil eggs again.

[Image: GKlqYYQl.jpg]

Most annoying, yet simple thing to make is a good hard boild egg. I hate nothing more then a chalky grey yolk. My pops used to boil the shit out of eggs till the yolk was dead and like a ping pong ball, I used to hate hard boiled eggs until I had a proper creamy one at a hotel once time.

Hard cooked eggs, when done right, these things are the most portable of snacks and protien. Making them well to the yolk you like is no easy task and peeling them is a bitch. But, no more.

I seen some shit on 'hard baked eggs' which sounds like like me, a blunt, and a hot 19 year old broad in my sheets but its actually a way to cook eggs, mostly for painting or deviled eggs but it also just makes a simple and easy hard cooked egg which is much easier to peel, and is less sketch then being at the mercy of a egg timer.

You take a muffin pan and put as many eggs as you want. Tonight I made 8 of them as a test.

Hard Cooked Baked Eggs:


- You pre-heat the oven at 325 F

- Place your eggs in the muffin tin compartments

- Cook the eggs for 20-25 mins.
^^^
NOTE: [...This is the only step where you have to weak things. My oven I guess gets really hot so I cooked it under the suggested time of 25 mins and did 20 and my yolks were firmer then I like, but not dusty and dry like bad cooked water boiled yolks that are still yellow. They were still creamy, just more dry.. not my personal preference so next time I will do 15-17 mins only. ...]


-Set your phone timer as its not as serious as the water method were literally 30 secs can fuck up your yolks.

-After the timer is done take out the eggs and run them under very cold water to cool them down. You can crack them much harder to peel, and the skin peels off much better with less mess.

Now I can easily make 12 hard baked eggs and not worry about them, I can hop in the shower, cook them, then cold rinse them, while I dress and pack them up for a lunch.

Big game changer for me. Now to bring on the Egg farts in the gym.

RE: Bodybuilding recipes - Cheap and Nutritious
I am going to try out this hard baked egg recipe. I have never eaten an egg cooked like that before. Sounds good though.
