Pita bread sounds good. But I don't remember seeing it in stores.

Healthy Food ? - March 30th 2009, 10:27 PM

I've been wanting to eat healthier lately, in an attempt to maybe lose a little weight [no, I'm not dieting] . But as we all probably know, a lot of healthy food tastes..well, disgusting.

I was wondering, does anyone have any healthy foods or recipes they could share with me ? I'd appreciate it a ton ! =)

I am a very bad cook, so I consume most of my food raw, or close to raw in the form of salads or just chopped fruit.

It takes a lot of getting used to if you're, well, used to cooked meals.. but I spend most of the day munching things like apples and carrots. I buy cereal bars and yogurts.. and I drink fruit juice and kefir (kind of like buttermilk).

Also, check vegetarian/vegan cookbooks, websites. There are some very healthy cook-able recipies on there.

I'm really inconsistent with things I buy . :3
I'll buy something and have it once . I'll choose the unhealthy option instead of the healthy option .

But thanks for the reply! Maybe I could prepare stuff in advanced. I think that would make it easier to be consistent with it, like chop up some fruit for a snack unstead of going and buying something unhealthy .

Get those ziploc containers with the lids and a cute lunch-bag. And also, carry water with you because you probably aren't getting enough. Also, a quick list of things that store easily:

Apples (they're usually cheap and they won't 'splode in your bag)
Clementines (basically a less durable version of apples when in season)
Baby carrots (no preparing stuff, they won't smush)
Nuts and trailmixes (pour in container, close container)
Cereal Bars (.. do don't need to do anything with theses)
Milk/juice boxes (same as above)
Water Bottles (do not waste money on bottled water.. tap is fine unless you live in some place where the water is infected)
Cherry tomatoes and Grapes (you grab a handful or two, wash, and put in a container)
Cucumbers (you can just pack whole ones, eat suggestively )
Avocados (expensive but really good for you. You can half them and then consume the contents with a spoon.)
Yogurts (get the whole milk variety... they're good for you and have a layer of cream on top)
Unsalted nuts (scoop and place in container.. good for protein)

That's just the stuff I buy to package ahread of time.. um.. hmm. In short, invest in good containers and get used to raw fruits and veggies?

Apples are really good. I also like to eat brussel sprouts for snacks instead of less healthy foods. Not sure if you like the taste of brussels, but i find them alright.

Stir fry is very healthy, assuming you don't use too much oil, or fatty sauce.
Take some veggies, and some chicken, if you want meat, fry them in a wok, with a tiny bit of oil, some crushed garlic, maybe some ginger, and chilli, boil some brown rice, and voila, stir fry

Subway doesn't count. Next time your in there, go and look at the nutritional chart. Unless your on a work-out regimen, Subway should be a no-go. In the subs I get, which I can eat, because of my regimen, there is xxx+ calories in a foot long, chicken teryikae, double meet and double cheese on whole wheat bread with lettuce and black olives, salt pepper and paremsean cheese.

You know resteraunts like Uno? You think they're good probably, well they're not. xxx Calories in one small burger and small side of fries. Sacrifice the fries and live with hunger, you've still got xxx calories and that's not including the cheese, bun and condiments. Plus the fat and carbs that come off both.

It's hard to find healthy food. I eat yogurt like a mother-fucker, it's good, and doesn't do much, it actually reduces your body-fat.

Oh and by the way, xxx calories products or low calorie products are bull-shit.... Including diet soda! They're are calories, carbs and fat in the ingredients put into the soda's, just not as much as regular soda or regular butter.

I guess roast dinners are quite healthy if there's veg like brocolli, cauliflower and carrots.
Pasta salad.
Fruit salad.

I used to work at a subway,they are the most UN-Healthy places ever. I used to love subway food until i started working at one. *puke face*

I usually make a yogurt fruit salad which is really good, any type of yogurt with the selection of fruits you like best. Mine usually have strawberries, bananas , and apples in them. It's soo good if you cut it all up into tiny mouth size bites.

Apples with peanut butter.
Crackers & Cheese
Peanut butter & banana sandwiches.

See, Just Duckie can agree with me! I used to work there too, quite after the second week when I found out they advertise their shit wrong.

And you really just need to look at the labels. There isn't such thing as healthy foods, in my world. It's all about the label, protein, carbs, fat and calories. Of course sodium, but still... You need to learn how to read labels.

Want some help on it? Let me know. I'll give you a list of good foods that'll have no effect on you.

I think that when it comes to wanting to eat healthy the best thing that you can do is cook yourself. Stay well away from any ready meals because of the high salt levels and have a go at making your own food! You don't necessarily have to be the worlds best cook or even have to spend hours in the kitchen. I'd suggest trying to pick up a cheap 'healthy eating' cook book [yes, some actually say that on the front ] and trying a couple of things out. It's fun and most things are quick to make too.

I made tofu stir-fry once and it was delicious because I used teriyaki flavoring... though I'm not sure how healthy that is.

My main food groups for staying healthy:
- fruits
- vegetables
- juice
- milk

Hey, there's another thread on healthy foods in General Health, so I'm going to move this thread there and then merge the two threads. Then, we'll have one nice big huge list of healthy foods!

Personally, I really like the recipes they give in Seventeen magazine. Weird, I know, but I've tried various ones of those out before and they taste pretty good. And yum, some of these that you guys have recommended are sounding awesome. Might have to add some stuff to my grocery list. =P

Someone needs to spend a day with me...

... Not all food is healthy in right doses. You can't eat a Hungry Man dinner, because it runs up around --- calories, just depends which dinner you actually do get. And with that said, the average teen should only be consuming --- calories a day. With that said, carb and fat percentages should be kept to a minimum. The fat percentage on one of the Hungry Man dinners is 43% which leads to clogged arteries and such.

Learn to read labels, stay away from preserved or processed foods.

Define what you mean by "healthy". Having 1 Hungry Man dinner is not going to do lots of harm to you overall, regardless of your current weight, age, gender and amount of current exercise. Having 1 Hungry Man for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks each day will.

I do a balance of fresh and preserved/processed foods, as there are times when I just do not have enough time to make something fresh. If you have processed/preserved foods from time-to-time, then it's not too harmful to you.

You're acting like preserved, processed and fast-foods should be avoided at all costs. I sometimes swing by New York Fries, Teriyaki, Pizza Pizza, etc... . Not everyday, usually just to Pizza Pizza as it's located in our university campus, and I have a slice for a 6-9 pm lecture twice per week. May not be the best for me, however, I do a bit of exercise and eat fresh foods for breakfast, dinner and half of the lunches (other half is fast-food).

Oh, it's you again, great!

Having one hungry man dinner over-all will slow down your metabolism, as one end result along with many others.. If you want, I can take the time out of my day and list them all here. All I did was use that as an example...

Time-to-time, hmm, what's that to you? To be honest, you can't have it period. Well, not in my life-style, but I mean, maybe you have a metabolism like a rocket and YOU can.

Alright... You should avoid it at all costs. SUBWAY isn't even as healthy as it's made out to be, it's the ONLY place I will stop for fast food. If it's not that, then I just don't eat until I can make sure my metabolism is back on track and I have the food that I need. Preserved and processed foods, and of course fast foods, raise your body-fat percentage, can cause acne, slows down your metabolism, clogs your arteries and over-all fucks up your health.

I've done five years of research into diets, what does and doesn't work regardless of the person and what food is and isn't good for you. Diet Soda isn't good for you, although it doesn't show calories, the ingredients have calories, carbs and fat still so don't have a huge party on diet soda in your bed-room at midnight.

And NO ONE should have carbohydrates after 5PM at the LATEST... Between 5PM-7PM your metabolism plummets, meaning eating those foods is gonna do more harm at that time, then at 9AM... Unless you plan on running a few miles afterwards, which if your eating fast food your most likely not doing.

You can't beat me on this one, YourNightMare.

I'm living proof on the diet and exercise aspects of TH.

Cranberry's in general are really good for you. Cranberry juice, according to my parents, makes periods less painful.

First, this isn't a competition. It's an online forum regarding general health. That's great that you're proof, I couldn't really care though.

In your attempt to remove all fast-foods and unhealthy foods from your diet, where exactly does the amount of necessary fat come from? Your body requires some amount of fat, so where does it come from in your diet?

My point is, Hungry Man and the others are unhealthy, however, it's not going to make your metabolism plummet nor is it going to drastically affect your health if you rarely eat one.

Your metabolism is affected by a variety of things: amount of exercise, amount of food intake, type of foods, types and amounts of drugs/medications, etc... .
