What are some good healthy recipes, cheap and easy to make?

I want to lose weight this summer, and train at the same time for softball. Can you list some healthy recipes for lunch/dunner, low in fat, low in carbs, sugars, calories.

And if i ride a bike for a bout a mile or two each day will i lose weight faster?

    Well, I don’t have any recipes, but you could freeze some fruit! like freeze grapes or bananas.(you could also put chocolate on your frozen banana)

    Smoothies are easy. not ICE CREAM smoothies, but ICE smoothies. they are more healthy
    first, get a cup of ice
    pour the ice into your blender
    put the fruit in
    blend and enjoy!

    hmm.. how about some veggie kababs?
    take some fresh or cooked vegetables for your kabab
    shove ‘um onto a long toothpick thing and enjoy!

    well then there’s cauliflower popcorn!
    cook some cauliflower and pour it in a bowl.
    pour ranch over and enjoy!

    you could also make cereal bars
    first melt 2 cups of marshmallows in the microwave
    take your favorite cereal and mix with the melted marshmallows

    If you need any more, feel free to email me.

    Quick Breakfast Taco

    2 corn tortillas
    1 tablespoon salsa
    2 tablespoons shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup liquid egg substitute, such as Egg Beaters

    1. Top tortillas with salsa and cheese. Heat in the microwave until the cheese is melted, about 30 seconds.
    2. Meanwhile coat a small nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat, add egg substitute and cook, stirring, until the eggs are cooked through, about 90 seconds. Divide the scrambled egg between the tacos.

    BBQ Chicken Sandwich

    1/2 cup shredded cooked chicken
    1/4 cup shredded carrots
    2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
    2 teaspoons light ranch dressing
    1 small whole-wheat sandwich bun
    1 leaf romaine lettuce

    Combine chicken, carrots and barbecue sauce in a bowl. Spread ranch dressing on the bun. Top with the chicken mixture and lettuce.

    Zesty Bean Dip & Chips

    1/4 cup fat-free canned refried beans
    1 tablespoon salsa
    1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
    1 minced scallion (optional)
    1 ounce tortilla chips (about 10)

    Combine refried beans, salsa, cilantro and scallion (if using) in a bowl. Serve with tortilla chips.

    Inside-Out Cheeseburgers

    1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
    1 pound 90%-lean ground beef
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

    1. Preheat grill to medium-high or preheat the broiler.
    2. Combine Cheddar and Gruyere in a small bowl.
    3. Gently mix beef, Worcestershire, paprika and pepper in a large bowl, preferably with your hands, without overworking. Shape into 8 thin, 4-inch-wide patties. Mound 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture on each of 4 patties, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Cover each with one of the remaining patties. Crimp and seal the edges closed.
    4. To grill: Lightly oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the stuffed patties over medium-high heat, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. (Be sure not to press the burgers as they cook or they’ll split open and the cheese will ooze out.) To broil: Cover a broiler pan with foil and coat with cooking spray. Broil the stuffed patties in the upper third of the oven, about 4 minutes per side for medium-well. In either case, let the burgers stand for 5 minutes before serving.

    Make it a habit to eat a piece of fruit in the morning, and at least a cup of vegetables at lunch and dinner (A “serving” of most vegetables is ½ cup.) That’s “5 a day” without breaking a sweat

    Breakfast stuff:

    Hard boiled or poached egg, 1 slice whole or multigrain toast (Sara Lee has yummy 45 calorie wheat breads now) abnd a little apple sauce on the toast-no butter.

    45 calories wheat toast with apple sauce on top then melt some cheese on top under the broiler until nice and golden brown.

    Oatmeal-otameal has a fair aount of calories to begin with but it is a goos stick to your ribs kind of brekfats that wont leave you hangery in 20 min. Add some fresh fruit., and use a yiny sprinkle of sugar and a splash of milk.

    English muffin, scrambled egg and and nice tall glas of OJ


    Sandwiches with eli meat.

    Unroll the fake crab legs and add to a sandwich.


    Reduced calories soups

    Grilled white meats, veggies and a small amount of starch.


    Grilled, baked or poached white meats, a HUGE pile of veggies and limited starches.

    My best method has been to keep a food journal. I try to not go over 1,300 calories. I know I sneak nibbles and tastes in here and they all add up. 1,500-1,800 calories is a good target range for loosing weight. When I stop at 1,300 I know I have cusion room for the little extras I snuck in during the day, or if I under estemated a serving and calories on a certian thing.

    Also keep hyrdtared.

    Riding your bike will help but when you do the same thing everyday you body basicaly builds an immunity towards that excercise and it doesn’t work any more.

    So don’t forget to do other diffrerent exercises as well.

    “Corny Beanie Weenies.”
    (from a country preacher in Mississippi…wife & 2 teenage sons)

    Mix one can of good baked beans
    We use a good sized can of beans (14-16 ounces, I think) and
    get a kind that we like (maybe with brown sugar, onion, and bacon).
    There are several kinds of good baked beans.

    and a package of Oscar Meier Weiners (all sliced up).

    with a can of whole kernel corn (drained)

    Any way, heat up these three ingredients, and serve with brown bread
    (maybe toasted ?) and a glass of milk.

    It doesn’t get any easier than this, and is suprisingly good!

    P.S…..Might put ingredients in a casserole dish and top with corn muffin mix.

    Until meat is tender.
    The first time I mad it I didn’t have the Italian Dressing mix….so I added a pkg. of Onion Soup Mix….I have to say I liked that better.
    If you use more water you might want to add more Brown Gravy mix….to make a thicker sauce. Was gonna add
    potatoes and carrots…but never got around to it.
