Flavorful Meals- But Good For a Diet Too!?

lapetite | Mar 6, 2006 05:39 PM

I know ppl ask for tips all the time, but it's really hard to find them all here, and i'd like them all in one place. I need more ideas, need to tone up for several big events coming up in the next few months, and I refuse to have fat free cottage cheese with fruit all the time.

I prefer salty over sweet and like big, juicy flavor.

here's what i like so far:

-quick seared lean beef thinly sliced on romaine or mixed greens with a white wine vinaigrette.

-roast chicken, either zuni or two lemons. no extra oil.

-egg white scrambles with veggies and good curry powder.

-different chinese greens (pea shoots, hollow hearted veg, etc), quick sauteed on very very high heat with olive oil, garlic and a drizzle of soy.

personal trainer says no complex carbs after noon for now so all my dinners will have to be complex carb free (as much as possible anyway).
