    I have to second this. Tuna salads and chicken are probably the best foods to eat when you're working out and getting into shape, because they're not fattening but at the same time good sources of protein. I mostly lived on tuna salad and protein drinks when I was doing my last work-out.

    Drink alcohol with moderation
    There's a good reason why a beer belly is called that. Although there are low-carb beers (which soldiers tend to drink a lot), I'd advise anyone who is working out to keep their booze-drinking to a minimum level.

    Making your own bread is supposed to be cheap, but you might not have time for that.

    None of this is good for you it is just quick carbs which convert to sugar inside of your body = quick energy, not much nutrition. Un-fermented grains contain phytic acid which is an anti-nutrient anyhow.

    Spend all of your money on a wide variety of vegetables and meats if you want to fulfill all your vitamin / mineral / nutrition requirements. Fruits should be third on your list. Make sure you get fats in your body too as you cannot absorb the vitamins an minerals as well without them IE whole milk butter / yogurt / sour cream. If you can, fill your diet with as much fermented products as well. Fermented not only enhances the nutrition content of select food product, it is also a pre-stage of digestion and helps your body better digest whatever food product it is.

    Beware of soy as even fermented soy products contain phytic acid.

    Healthy Steamer Recipes

    Greetings all. I took up advice concerning purchasing a steamer and have tried a few recipes but not much success as far as consistency and taste. I have looked online for reipes but most seem rather minimal in nutrient or health department. I have also taken advice on switching white to brown (sugar, rice etc.) I still have much work to do in the lab but am asking for others helpful hints

    I always liked steamed baby carrots. I don't know if you can use sugars or any of that but they're usually good with some light butter. Steamers are worth the money IMO.

    edit: broccoli and cauliflower are good as well. Steam those separate or mixed; until soft and mix with a little bit of velveeta cheese. Unless of course the cheese turns you off for health reasons you can just use some kind of seasoning.
    You can also steam fish(with butter and lemon pepper)
    and scallops with butter.

    I'll ask the steam expert of the household later.
