Any interest in starting a recipe sub-section?

We can share our favorite meals/snacks/foods whether it's for specific purposes such as performance, pre/post training, plant-based, keto etc, things we plain enjoy or both (just some basic examples, I'm not suggesting that this is the list). It can be as basic or detailed as you want even with marcos and calories, but if you don't have that info no biggie either. Pictures would be awesome too!

If we had a subforum, I suggest that the organization would be a sticky/README with general guidelines for posting and a list of the logical tags to use that is always open for addition suggestions. I think it's important to use the same ones so when folks see the README they have an idea of how to search out recipes.

You can start own threads for your foods/meals/snack (name them something fun or whatever) and continue to add to your own thread for more of your own meals. Tag them with whatever tags seem most appropriate from the README. Replies to your threads would focus specifically on the meal(s) on the thread. Folks to could also make requests for meals for a particular purpose, focus etc... Again, I think tagging is most important.

If it seems worthwhile, please select interested and respond to this thread with your ideas on a set of tags we could start out with.

I'm a rebel, so I'll just share one of my favorites recipes regardless of the poll result: orange juice, 2 bananas and a whole bunch of spinach smoothie.

My default smoothie template: one (or two) type(s) of fruit(s) (frozen or fresh). two kinds of leafy greens. almond milk.

Me too, but I use regular milk these days (used to use Almond milk) and I add a scoop of whey powder for 20g protein.

Half cup of rolled oats, 2 scoops of protein powder (30 g protein), and 24 oz water is a meal replacement for me, along with a piece of fruit like a banana or 2 clementines.

I'm gonna try it with almond milk instead of orange juice. It should be good, but I wonder if it will lack sweetness. Do you add honey or something?

The almond milk you make it yourself?

No, I don't add honey or any sweeteners. Fruit is the sweetener right. If you need more sweet, add more fruits. For me I can handle it without any fruits. Milk, avocados, protein powder etc. takes the bitter edge for me.

No. Store-bought. Unsweetened.

To curb the desserts & sweet tooth I like to make a cup of steel cut oats, peanut butter and sliced bananas. Just enough sweet and keeps me full.

I've also started getting into Skyr (icelandic yogurt) with some raspberries or strawberries as a sweet snack.

Simple 2-3 ingredient recipes do it for me.

This sizzling Filipino specialty is loaded with flavor and cooked to perfection so that each mouthful has that delightfully crispy bite that the whole family craves. A street food favorite in the Philippines, this aromatic recipe will have the senses working overtime and the mealtime memories flooding back.

Sisig - Wikipedia

Wikipedia said:
is a Filipino dish made from parts of pig head and chicken liver, usually seasoned with calamansi, onions and chili peppers.

Sisig has been a culinary tradition of Pampanga and the Kapampangan people feel very strongly about it to the point that the city government of Angeles City, Pampanga, through its City Ordinance No 405, Series of 2017, declared Sizzling Sisig Babi (Pork Sisig) as an intangible heritage of Angeles City.

Oh, sisig! I've been wanting to try that since I saw it from a Bourdain show years ago. Don't know places near me that offer it though, but doing it on my own could work.
