Is low fat, high protein possible?

Anything with Tofu in (low fat, high protein). It tastes grim on its own but it soaks up other flavours beautifully. Cut it into squares, toss in some spices, fry in a good veg oil till crisp, serve with pine nuts and rice. Actually quite nice.

O.K how about some recipes that are good running fodder. And i only really meant saturated fat.

Are you really sure about that because your own suggestions seemed to be fairly heavy on the carbo too?

Are you looking to build muscle endurance, or merely muscle-man bulk? For bulk go high protein, but the received wisdom is for runners to go high carbohydrate, and slow burn carb at that.

I would suggest to take any recipe that you fancy, and merely to add an extra potato, heap of rice, or shovel of pasta to the quanity recommended. For every mile that you run each day, you should add 100 calories (from carbs) to your daily diet.

Run to eat, eat to run.

And go and buy Delia Smith "One is Fun".

never had that
what's it like?

Quinoa (pronounced Keen WAH I think) has a sort of nutty taste from what I remember. Good as a replacement for rice, cous-cous, that sort of thing.

Very Gillian MacKeith though LOL.

LOL Voods!!

Pix - it's yummy, we had it for dinner last night.

It's a bit bland on its own, but I cook it in boiling stock for about 10 mins (then leave it for about 5 mins with the heat switched off to absorb water). Then I gently fry some onions and whatever veggies I have chopped into small pieces (last night it was tenderstem broccoli, mushrooms, courgettes, fresh peas). Mix it all together and I had that with fresh tuna steak.

Agree, quinoa is great. Plus it's got a high protein content for a grain.

Salmon A La H...

2xSalmon Steaks (boneless), put them in a baking dish, cover with some chopped pineapple, a chopped mango, a chopped red and/or chopped yellow pepper and pour on approx 2 cups of orange juice. (I'll use a small tin of pineapple in juice and stick the juice in too). Put foil on the top and bake for 35 mins at 200o. Serve with brown rice..... Yummy and v healthy!
