Good, healthy recipes that men will enjoy?

My fiance and my dad are both on low-fat diets. They’re getting tired of salads and grilled meats and veggies. I’m looking to make them some meals that are more substantial and tastier. Please share any good healthy recipes you may have!

    well im in to culinary and id tell you to go all out on rich foods ( duck, lamb, beef etc) cuz men love fatty foods like that. but you know they dont need all that fat. so heres an idea. go for like some fresh seafood ( scallops, halibut, salmon,) ok salmons not seafood but its fish. go for like something rich in taste but in fish. lets go with halibut fo instance, you can just season it with some salt and pepper, throw in the oven for like a few min. til its white all the way through. place it over some cooked greens like spinach. or you can do a simple pasta with like some baked chicken, peas, carrots red peppers or what ever vegetable you choose. and pour over a tomato sauce or a light cheese sauce. hope i helped a little. email me if youd like some more ideas or im me.

    Pot roast will be good seasonal food shortly. Use lean beef and trim off any visible fat. Use non-stick pan spray to coat your pan when you brown the meat, instead of using oil. Throw in whatever veggies they like in pot roast (carrots and potatoes are the traditional favorites; some folks also use onions) and be sure to season it well. I like to use crushed garlic in mine. A little salt and pepper and onion powder will round things out. After browning the meat, put it into a large pot and add water and seasonings. Cover the roast with the water. Cut your veggies and add them. Let it simmer, covered, for at least an hour or two. The meat and veggies should all be tender. Then it’s done. This is a good dish when you’re waiting for someone to arrive, since it really does easily “keep” on the stove for up to an hour. It’s also a great slow-cooker meal.

    If needs be, you can replace the beef in pot roast with chicken breast. Leave it on the bone but remove the skin. The flavor of everything else is best, for some reason, when the chicken is left on the bone.

    Give em southwestern burgers – tomato rice ( make rice with 1 can of southwestern or chili flavoered diced tomatoes) and corn would be perfect additions!

    From low fat foods

    These tasty, low fat burgers use extra-lean ground beef combined with mashed black beans to reduce fat content and make moist, flavorful patties. The jalapeno pepper, cumin and cilantro add a nice little kick. Use a hotter chile pepper if you prefer, or omit it altogether if you want a more subtle flavor. Serve burgers on a whole grain or sourdough bun with plenty of low fat condiments. Fresh salsa and low fat sour cream work perfectly.

    1 cup reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed
    1/4 cup minced red onion
    1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
    2 tsp ground cumin
    3/4 pound extra-lean ground beef
    1/4 cup tomato sauce
    1 egg white
    2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

    In a small bowl, mash black beans with a fork. Add onion, jalapeno pepper and cumin. Mix well. Place ground beef in a large bowl, followed by the bean mixture. Add sauce, egg white and cilantro. Blend well with a fork.
    Broil or grill for 5-6 per side until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
