    This sounds amazing. Sort of like my recipe for this but my recipe does not call for bread crumbs. may I ask what kind of cheese you use? I have a tendency to use swiss but any kind I bet is pretty good.

    I heard that fenugreek is very healthy it gives you more power ;p and it can enlarge breast
  6. I don't know if you'd call this healthy, but I like making tuna salmon salad sandwiches. Basically, it's just canned (deboned) salmon and tuna mixed with lite mayo, mustard (if desired), finely diced onion and red pepper and sweet pickles or relish. Stir, chill and then serve on whole wheat crackers or multi-grain bread. That's a winning dish for my family. Everyone seems to love it and it's really low fat and chocked with all kinds of healthy nutrition. Plus, fish is good for you anyway with all those healthy Omega 3 fatty acids.

    Fish is considered to be one of the most healthy food/recipes.
    I aslo love fried carp with sweet and sour sauce, and i think it is a health recipe too. You can google it if you dont know.

    Oooh yum! This sounds like something I'd enjoy very much. I assume you serve these over rice?

    Ok, so I got this recipe from my old gym trainer....

    2 eggs: 1 whole egg, 1 just the white part
    1/2 tsp low fat milk
    spinach (as much as u prefer)
    tomato (a few slices)
    low fat mexican 3 cheese (sprinkle on small amount)

    Thats it! Just whip up the eggs and add a little bit of fat free/low fat milk, then as the egg cooks, add on the tomato and spinach. Let it simmer and add cheese last! Its sooooo good! :)

    I love menudo but I don't consider it healthy. It depends on the person who'll cook it. You can opt to use lean meat. Usually though, menudo contains a lot of fat. If you want a healthier option for this delicious recipe, you can use fish instead of pork. ;)

    Fiber Is Your Friend -- Carrot Salad

    My elderly mother lives with us. I whip this up for her whenever I see her reaching for the Metamucil.

    4 Cups grated raw carrots
    ½ Cup raisins -- or any other dried fruit
    ½ Cup sliced almonds -- or any other chopped nuts
    2 tsp. sugar (optional)
    1/3 Cup Mayonnaise
    1/8 Cup pineapple juice
    ¼ Cup crushed pineapple

    Combine 4 Cups grated raw carrots, ½ Cup raisins and ½ Cup sliced almonds in a large mixing bowl. Mix everything well and set aside.

    Whisk 2 tsp. sugar into 1/3 Cup mayonnaise in a small mixing bowl. Whisk in 1/8 Cup pineapple juice. Stir in ¼ Cup crushed pineapple.

    Fold the dressing into the grated carrot mixture. Stir gently to mix well. Refrigerate in airtight container. Chill for 2 hours before serving.

    TIP: You won’t need an entire can of crushed pineapple and juice, and I hate seeing anything go to waste. Portion ¼ Cup of the pineapple and 1/8 Cup of the juice together into individual plastic containers or ziplock bags and freeze. Thaw a container of pineapple and juice to make your next few batches of carrot salad.

    Tuna Patties!! Yes, sounds a little yuck but very healthy and full of protein.....

    1 can of tuna in spring water
    1 egg
    a handful of breadcrumbs (enough to thicken the mixture a bit)
    1-2 TB olive oil (i looooove olive oil, use it in EVERYTHING!!)
    squeeze of lemon juice
    salt and pepper to taste
    chilli powder or paste for a kick

    Mix this all together and form into balls, squish them a little with a fork.
    Heat a knob of batter in a pan and fry each one until golden.

    Easy, really easy. And delicious with a fresh salad (with more olive oil dressing) and bit of bread on the side if you want more. They do fill you up tho cos of the protein so are really good if you're watching your weight, or looking at cutting back on bread and heavy carbs.
