I've used black beans before, not bad, was just in a white bean mood.

When we make chili we use a mix of red kidney beans, romano beans, black beans and garbonzo beans (a.k.a. chick peas).

Never use plain old brown beans ever.

Kidney beans taste like chalk to me, never enjoyed them in chili. Chili is the greatest thing, all kinds of fiber, veggies, protein then all the whey and casein protein when you chase it with a giant glass of milk.

Absolutely 100% agree.  One of my favorite foods.  I made a pot of chili on Monday and have been eating it for lunch all week.  This time I made it with 1.5 lbs ground turkey, 1.5 lbs ground beef, a large onion, a green bell pepper, a pasilla pepper, 2 cans of diced green chiles, 2 stalks celery, 2 carrots, 2 cans of rinsed & drained black beans, and a home-made mix of seasonings.  LOVE IT with a big glass of milk.

Last night I had a hankering for an old meal from my childhood, hamburger gravy on dirty, cheesy, garlic mashed potatoes and a side of corn. No one else would eat it, so there was a chitload leftover. I put some potatoes in the bottom of the lunch dishes, followed by corn and hamburger gravy. Boom, instant Shepard's pie, got 5 lunches in the freezer for the week.  8)

Training for me involves many things that have nothing to do with the gym.  One of the biggest is keeping up with the supply of good food available.  I take weekends to cook ahead.   One of my favorites is breaded chicken breast.   I slice in half and then beat thin.  Egg wash and italian bread crumbs, with Parmesan cheese along with garlic salt.   Pan fried to light brown with a SMALL amount of coconut oil (and supplementing with canola spray to get in nooks and crannies.   Finished off in a 300deg oven to fully cooked.

This tastes sooooo good.   Also can easily freeze (I weigh out portions in ziplocks and freeze).   I take them out the day before and they are delisous even cold, but if you have a stove available, you can crisp in a pan easily in about 5-6 min.  Just put in a pan and flip half way.  (no oil needed).

YUMMY!

Actually did this earlier today! Minus the parmesan cheese.
Remembered you mentioning this recipe a while back and since we had 5lbs of chicken breast.
Of course with 3 boys and 2 of their friends over today there's only about 6 strips left.
Good thing I cooked a ham too  ;)

The Parmesan really kicks up the taste.   I am not a big parm guy in general, but it almost acts like salt in when using it this way.  Flavor is over the top good.  Also helps in nice browning.

I am cooking a 18lb turkey today.   Like Thanksgiving in Jan.   Family dinner tonight and then weigh portion and freeze leftovers.   LOTS of good lunches. ;).   Started putting regular ziplock baggies INSIDE a large Vacuseal bag.  I pull a vacuum on the whole thing which squeezes all the air out of the ziplock and then run my finger over the "zip' part and stop it before I seal the lager bag.   I reuse the large vacuum bag over and over, and get a great way to freeze portions of meat cheap.   Really keeps down freezer burn when you squeeze all the air out.

I had forgotten about the parmesan cheese when I was making them but the italian season bread crumbs have plenty of flavor so it's not lacking.

I was looking for some healthy alternatives to the food I like and came across this cauliflower pizza recipe. I know it's not for everyone but I thought I'd post it here.

I made it tonight and IMO it's good. The only downside is that it doesn't really get hard like crust would. I had to eat it with a fork.

I was actually surprised at how good they were. I definitely need to "low carb" more than I've been.
