Two of my favorite meals are almond crusted flounder, and turkey chilli. The almond crusted flounder I buy pre-seasoned at my local super market then I bake it. The turkey chill I make in the crock pot. Both are pretty yummy !!!

What are your 2 favorite meals?

The crock pot is a good idea. I made chili today in my crock pot for our weekly poker game tonite. Serving it with cornbread. I can eat almost anything, just in smaller quantities. The crockpot is a good idea because things don't dry out - which makes it hard to go down. I'll put a couple of chicken breasts, a can of Italian seasoned chopped tomatoes, a small can of chopped green chilis, some italian seasoning, and chili powder. Yummy. Cook it about 8 hrs and you have a yummy meal! Almost, a website called allrecipes.com is a good place to find recipes. You can type in the type of food you want (ie: low fat, low carb, low calorie). The Betty Crocker website has lately become my best friend. It has really easy, healthy recipes.

Good luck!

Emilybites.com is a good website for recipes too and she even puts the nutritional information at the bottom of her recipes, which is usually the hardest thing to find online, at least for me. Recently I found a recipe for making pizza using a portabella mushroom as the crust, you can find it on youtube and the videos I watched were bandsters, it was pretty good and went down fine, the mushroom turns out moist from the sauce. I found that I can't eat dry mushrooms too well, but this worked.

I've been looking for a website that has a lot of band friendly recipes that take protein/carb content into consideration and I can't find one, pretty much resolved to just make one myself.

If I did would anyone be willing to put up their recipes?
