cut-friendly like very low-fat recipes? (sorry I'm half asleep) That'd be interesting, is there any criteria that must be met to be considered at cut-friendly?

Hmm, I don't know about anything scientific, I was just thinking high protein, low junk recipes. IE not too much sugar or fat. Cutting intake is usually like 40% of cals from protein, so the recipes would be working towards that goal...

 

1 kg of broccoli, fresh or frozen.

 

Steam for like 20 minutes or whatever.

 

Done! /thread

Nice, but you realize that provides ~20g of protein? So our thread could be:

 

Broccoli Cut Recipe

10kg steamed broccoli

Nutrition: 300g fiber

Note: Take with LOTS of water

 

30 grams of protein and 30 grams of fiber dude. It's perfect. You even got the n-3 fatty acids.

 

haha, there's something I love about you
