A mate of mine who was cutting for a fight and had to go out to dinner for a birthday or something.
He ordered one hard boiled egg.
But they put it on a plate and cut it into quarters for him.

Fry some diced green pepper and onion before adding your scrambled eggs to the pan, and some cheese. Sometimes I add jalapeno or serano peppers as well. Also garlic or chives depending on your tastes.
Goes good with hot sauce.
Green peppers are by far the best.

I've been eating more Quinoa lately. It's a nice change from brown rice.
I tend to use fresh ginger, garlic, and soy together. A LOT of ginger as a matter of fact. Usually sauteed with fresh veggies. If you use a stick-free pan or well seasoned cast iron you won't need much oil. However, I love good olive oil with a dash of sesame oil for flavor so usually don't skimp on it. Add whatever meat you want, or eat it with Quinoa, which is high protein.
Whole grain cous-cous is also delicious.
I also make my own bread using the "bread in 5 minutes a day" recipe concept. Nothing but flour, salt, yeast, and water at it's most basic.Falling for Judo since 1980

I've posted this before, but I also make my own hot sauce, either Louisiana style or Sririacha. You can ferment it or not if you are impatient.
Add either of those to whatever and it livens things up a bit.Falling for Judo since 1980

Oh, and I make my own bacon as well. I do use nitrite though. YOu don't have too, can just brine the meat, but, it won't really look like or have the texture of bacon.
I use the boneless pork "ribs" instead of pork belly. That way it's mostly meat and not so much fat.

I had to look up what "clean eating" is, and it seems to be the diet plan I already follow. Let me help you guys out. Remember, I'm a Street Nutritionist:
Carrots and Chili Powder:
- Carrots, washed
- Salt-free chili powder
- Bowl of water
Prep: First, take the top off the chili powder. Dip a carrot in the water, and then stick it in the chili powder. The chili powder will stick to the carrot because it's moist.
- Cornmeal (Enough to fill half a bowl)
- Nutritional yeast (Enough to top the bowl off)
- Huge glob of cinnamon to taste (Substitute five-spice seasoning with ginger if you want the dish to taste like a gumdrop)
- Tea kettle full of water
Prep: Mix the cornmeal, yeast, and cinnamon in a bowl. Put the kettle on until it whistles, and then pour the water into the bowl. Stir the contents well to make sure all the hot water is absorbed. The cornmeal is a pain in the ass, you'll probably have a lot of dry powder on the bottom. Save the rest of the water in the kettle for tea.
Tomato Quinoa with Eggplant:
- Medium-sized can of Hunt's Tomato Paste (It's BPA-free)
- Quinoa flour, as much as you need
- Store-bought grilled eggplant slices with olive oil
Prep: Spoon the tomato paste into a bowl and pour the quinoa flour in. Mix that up good and it's ready to serve with the eggplant on the side. Douse any leftover quinoa flour in the bowl with hot water to make it easier to scrape off and eat.

Personally if it fits my macros I eat whatever the heck I want. You should try it sometime.
