I cook a lot of food in my wood-fired smoker/grill; I'll smoke (or grill) a whole bunch of chicken wings or cornish hens or pork loin or a giant roast to last a week...

Make fresh salads from various single ingredients;

Chicken soup

Deli/sandwich meats and cheeses, I like a good salami with some Havarti cheese.

Eggs with smoked salmon and cheese...

On my don't care days (or weekends) I'll grab a burger or fried calamari and Fish and Chips, pizza, Sushi, pretty much anything at that point. I grill spicy Italian sausages too, those rock.

I try to eat healthy at home so I don't care about what I eat when I eat out, which isn't really often.

What's the point of this thread again? I'm getting hungry!

I try to eat a super clean, plant centered diet as much as possible, I try to cook everything I make myself and avoid most processed foods (excluding my cheat day). Most meals consist of the following ingredients/items.

Hummus, black beans, lima beans, black eyed peas.

Romaine lettuce,Kale, spinach, asparagus,broccoli,cucumber,tomatoes, onions, garlic,arugula,jalapenos,bell peppers,avocados,limes, lemons,
corn, peas, pea-pods, carrots, *sweet potatoes.

*pistachios, *pine nuts.

mangoes, bananas, blueberries, raspberries, grapes (usually frozen)

Boneless skinless chicken tenderloins, or breasts, Tilapia, salmon, tuna, eggs.

*ranch dressing, *ginger dressing, *low fat mayo, and horseradish mustard.

Mrs. dash seasoning blends.

Cilantro, dill,

(* used sparingly)

Eating this way, and cutting out beer, I went down from 292 lbs to 222 lbs (6'4'' tall) over the last six months. I should hit my goal weight of 205 lbs in the next month or so.

Well in the past I used to eat out pretty much non-stop for lunch and dinner. I've been trying to severely cut down on my food expenditures and I've found a couple of reasonably priced gems in the grocery store isle that I thought I'd share with you all.

One of my favorite things to eat is risotto. I'm pretty sure my last meal on earth will be a well seasoned risotto with a freshly made stock and a nice, sharp cheese. Most of the time I was paying anywhere from $30-$50 for a casual fine dining restaurant risotto dish (granted, these usually come with some sort of meat like a 4oz filet or ribeye or lamb osso bucco or something).

I've tried a couple of "packaged" risottos from the store from brands like Sabatino pronto and Lundberg. Sabatino offers a "truffled" risotto for $6.99 and I've been going with this for the past couple of weeks to curb my risotto addiction.

However, I just recently tried Lundberg's gluten free "creamy parmesan" ristotto ($2.99/box and it's even a little cheaper if you buy in bulk online) and I was blown away with how good it is for the price. It's super easy to make as well. Just saute the rice in a little bit of olive oil for 2 minutes, throw in 2.5 cups of water + the "cheese" pack and then simmer on medium for around 13-20 minutes (depending on the the kind of pan you use, as heat transfer will vary from pan to pan). The box says 20 minutes but I've had my risottos cook fully in as little as 13 minutes so you really need to keep an eye on it and make sure it doesn't get too dry.

I finish it off with a little butter and add in some fresh, shredded parmesan cheese at the end as well.

Sabatino pronto's truffled risotto isn't bad but I don't think it's twice as good as Lundberg's risotto, and so I don't think it's particularly cost effective.

If you guys like risotto and you're as lazy as I am when it comes to cooking definitely give Lundberg's "creamy parmesan" a try. I just ordered a pack of 20 for around $2.65/pack (that's including shipping) online. Grocery stores mark up the price to anywhere from $2.99/pack to $3.50/pack.

You can easily top a plate of risotto with your favorite meat for a full meal. I've actually invested in a slow cooker and I plan on trying my hand at making slow cooked lamb shanks in the near future (I'll just throw in the lamb shanks with some store-bought stock and vegetables and let them slow cook for 12 hours). The jus from the lamb + the risotto might actually replicate the restaurant risotto experience pretty well.

Lundberg gets raving reviews on amazon -

http://www.amazon.com/Lundberg-Cream.../dp/B000G7X0OK

Please note though - do not buy from Amazon. They are charging $6/box. You can get these at the grocery store for $2.99/box or from other online sites for even less. Just google "lundberg creamy parmesan" and look for the cheapest price if you want to buy in bulk. Otherwise, just get it from the grocery store.

I eat food I cook myself. I grow a decent amount of veggies in my yard and use them in a lot of dishes.

Making food at home is way cheaper than buying food anywhere else.

The only thing prepackaged that I buy is my shake powder for lunch. One bag gets me through a month.

If it's warm out I throw something on the grill like lamb/beef/chicken kabob or some steaks. I'm a big BBQ chicken guy and I definitely love me some chipotle!

I cook primarily for myself, don't dine out much; Things I enjoy that are rather easy to prepare:
- Corned beef brisket (toss it into a pot with some seasoning, then sit on my ass all day)
- Pulled pork / chicken (Again, let it cook all day so I can be lazy)
- Pizza (Too many variations its hard to have a boring pizza)
- Burgers / Sandwiches (Usually off the wall ingredients, can't stand ham&cheese etc.)
- Bacon (Fuck off if you don't like bacon)
- Broccoli / Green Beans / Corn / Lettuce (Have to eat something healthy here and there)
- Bread (I prefer the cook it yourself french bread / ciabatta, both are good all around for sides or sandwiches)
- Pussy (Doesn't matter what time of day, prefer breakfast and dessert)

We dine out a ton which is starting to bring down the bank account, eating out 5-6 days a week adds up. We usually go to a nice steak house whenever groupon covers a nice place. Tiburon and Carvers steak house are awesome in my area and after the $40 groupon the bill is only around $50. Once a week we are at a parents house eating whatever is cooked.

I love chinese food, Cafe Rio is amazing, Wingers, In an Out, and Zupas are great places to eat at as well!

I miss In-N-Out. It would be #1 on my list if I still lived in Cali.

I mix it up. The only vietnamese place in the area closed to no more banh mi but I still cycle through Thai, Peruvian, Mexican, Pizza, Chili, BBQ, etc. and of course one of the many local Delis (something lacking in many areas of the country). Lucky to be in a good food area here. Within a half hour of four of the top-50 pizza places in the country.

Lots of pastas, meats, anything I perceive as having a lot of calories I eat up as well. Attempting to gain some decent weight. On top of protein shakes, and the 4 mini meals in the day.

I eat a lot of different things on different days...depends on gym, mood, etc. If it's really cold outside I usually go for some broccoli cheddar soup and a sammich.

We have a lot of hole in the wall places around where I live so the food is bangin' around here. I try to cook at home as much as possible though (pasta, grilled chicken, tilapia, salmon, whatever I throw together, etc).

Someone said Chipotle earlier and I might actually have to get that tonight for dinner lol

I do love Chipolte, but every night for dinner? Damn, doesn't that get old? I imagine you must be on a first name basis with everyone working there now. Random trivia, did you know the first Chipolte opened here in Denver 20 years ago?

I love spicy stuff, so if I ate Chipotle every day for dinner for over a year I likely would have died from rectal bleeding by now.
