    food help

    I am getting tired of eating the same foods looking for some healthy ideas.

    I have been eating a lot of salmon, chicken and turkey burgers.

    I want to start eating tuna but not sure what to put on it since I dont eat mayo and it does not taste so great plain?

    How much worse is it to eat skinless chicken thighs (i do cut the fat off with a razor blade) as oppose to chicken breast?
    I find the thighs taste so much better but i am guessing there is a reason for that.

    any help would be appreciated.

    Ah tuna...I LOVE TUNA....its so versatile.

    Tuna is good with.....

    Wholemeal pasta and pasta sauce
    Baked potatoe and tinned chopped tomatoes
    Rice baked in water with vegetable stock cubes
    Sandwiches with cucumber or sweetcorn
    In a salad with a drop of olive oil and lemon juice

    But there are other protein alternatives like pulses... Butter beans, kidney beans...all kinds of other beans.

    Bean salad is nice, take a tin of butter beans and a tin of kidney beans mix them together with finely diced onion a drop of olive oil and some parlsey.

    You can also be more adventerous with your chicken like dicing it and boiling it with vegetables, herbs and spices to make a soup etc.

    eat it by itself. getting big is not about enjoying food. if you get over that then you will grow. it's a need not a want.
    also, depending on what your goals are i would be careful about some the above listed foods.. some of them are high on the glycemic index and could cause fat storage. even if there is no sugar.

    I have to disagree on this one. Even when I'm cutting, I need to enjoy my food. Hell, when you're bulking it's pretty hard not to enjoy food. There's a difference between sacrificing food vs sacrificing taste....

    I find a bit of salsa usually does the trick. Or, depending on what your calorie intake allow, I like to add some peanut satay sauce..
