Not strictly bike related, though it'd be good to see some recipes that are portable..
What's some good healthy foods and food tips you've found? I know i've been having problems with cutting back on meats, because my perception is that all vegetarians eat is either "fake overpriced meat made out of tofu" or "beans with various seasonings". We find fake meat vile (if we want a steak we'll make one - using the recipe below) and while we like beans, the people around us don't appreciate it when we eat too many. Not sure it that's temporary or what..
Petite Sirloin Steak (which is extremely lean) cut into single servings ('deck of card' sized). Thicker seems to work better.
Drip a few drops of worchestershire on the steak, and sprinkle some garlic powder on top lightly. Absolutely cover in the kosher salt. You shouldn't see any meat when you're done. Let sit for 45 minutes. Rinse steak completely to remove all salt, pat dry. Spray grill lightly with oil at medium heat, cook 8 minutes (don't mess with it!), spray top very lightly with oil (to avoid sticking), flip, cook 8 more minutes (don't mess with it!), serve.
Why: Makes very good tender steak that's not actually all that salty out of a cheap and importantly, VERY VERY LEAN cut of meat. We don't use steak sauce on these, and eat it with a plastic knife.
1/2 lb ground turkey breast
1 rounded tbsp tomato boullion (this is very processed, but I have yet to find an adequate substitute)
1 tbsp cumin powder
1 tbsp parsley flakes
juice from one lime
1-2 cups water
Combine all ingredients in a pan or large pot at high heat. Stirring frequently, boil until all excess liquid has boiled off.
Serve with dark-leafed salad mix and whatever else you would put on a taco without destroying the nutritional value. Low-fat and very flavorful. Can be stuffed in a vacuum bottle to eat later that day.
