I am new & wondered if there was a place that people post what they were having for their Lean & Green Meal - - for ideas - - also for helping out in ideas, for meals w/ husband to have ..

Tonight we are having grilled chicken & cauilflower - - yikes (cauil. not green!!!- but that's on the list I think!) I've misplaced my book.).

Lean Hamburgers I could do several nights without a problem & so could he.

I have some health issues, MS, back problems & not into alot of "cooking" - so therefore I want as fast & easy as possible for both us. Still trying to get adjusted & use to this. (first wk) (& find my way around on this site).

Could some of you post some of your Lean & Green Meals here for a few days??.



By the way I read where 5 olives green or black are FREE a day, but no where have I found that in print. Where is that? Where are the free foods written?? Many Thanks!!!..

Tonight I'm stir frying chicken breast strips (Tyson!) with peppers and onions and cumin and oregano and garlic powder - then putting them over my lettuce/tomato salad with some salsa - Fajita salad!.

Tomorrow night I'm having pulled pork and cole slaw (pork tenderloin, marinated in Stubb's Pork marinade, then cooked in the crockpot all day). Shred it with forks and toss with 2 Tbsp. BBQ sauce (read labels and pick a low carb one) Cole Slaw is 1 cup shredded cabbage, 1 slice onion, chopped, 1tbsp. light mayo, 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar, 1-2 pkts. splendra, salt and pepper.

You'll need an additional 1/2 cup of "green" - we'll have sliced tomatoes most likely..

Wednesday will be a chicken stir fry..

Thursday will be Chicken Tortillaless Soup..

Friday is somewhere far, far in the future......

OH! I also tend to marinate my chicken breasts in a baggie overnight, then come home and put in a foil packet and bake for 30-40 minutes. Use a store marinade or make your own (I have a nice recipe if you'd like!).

It takes a lot less watching than grilling, and clean up is much easier....

I'm all about easy!..

I made a vegetarian Chinese hot & sour soup today that encompassed the days' entire L&G portions. Here's the link:.

I also love to stir-fry shrimp with a variety of veggies. This is a quick and easy meal when you buy the frozen, peeled raw shrimp. You just throw it in frozen and it's done within minutes. I usually use butter spray and non-stick spray. Sometimes I add a little water to the bottom of the pan and more or less steam it all for a few minutes till done..

The same concept can be applied to tofu if you're a tofu eater..

Good luck!..

Jewelspet Orangeblood has a blog that has pics and recipes. He comes up with some great stuff. When I don't really want to bother with a lot of cooking I go to Trader Joe's (do you have a local one?) and buy the pre-marinated carne and chicken asada. I can make dinner in 10-15 minutes with them and they are sooo tasty. They also have prepackaged sirloin tips that you just stir fry right up with veggies or whatever. No cutting or marinating, it's all done for you.

There are all kinds of ideas for mashed cauliflower, the new potato pancake version of it, I baked it in a casserole, etc. The other easy thing is to just find some low carb dressing or marinade, let chicken breasts soak in it overnight, and grill. I use a lot of bottled carb options, south beach diet, etc. dressings, pour it into plastic bag before I go to bed and when I return home from work grill it. If there is some other kind of food you love then let the Medifast chefs here know and someone will come up with something quick and easy...

I am not very handy in the kitchen in more (haven't cooked in years) so I go to the BBQ places and have them slice chicken, turkey, pulled pork, etc. then measure and bag it. then I can just pull out a pre-measured baggie and add to salad greens or add a can (rinsed, of course) of veggies. I am also pretty lazy. I bought some BBQ sauce from walden farms-the thick and spicy and sometimes I just add that to the salad or meat. also use south beach salad dressings.

Hope this helps you...

One of the mainstays in our house is the 20 oz. bags of frozen diced chicken breasts from Tyson. It's all white meat chicken, fully cooked and diced into cubes. I used to par boil my own chicken and chunk it up but this is so much easier.

I keep 2-3 bags on hand all the time in the freezer. When it's time for a stir fry, I measure out 14 ounces (Both my husband and I are on the program) and plop it in a skillet with a few tablespoons of water. As it simmers and thaws, I chop veggies. That's the most time consuming part! I just make sure I have about 1 3/4 cups of veggies for each of us (I assume that it'll cook down to 1 1/2 cups). I use the veggies we like - summer squash, zucchini, mung bean sprouts, onion, broccoli.... At this point, I divide the chicken into two skillets because we like different levels of spice.

When it's done, I add one tablespoon of House of Tsang Szechuan or Classic Stir Fry Sauce (it's 4 carbs, so don't feel generous and tip in more.....) and some spices. That's dinner!..
