The thread on net is making me wonder what your experiences are with the "new" diet. Of course some of you have always ate well and perhaps this is the place to let us know what you like. I know most of us have enquired and asked our doctors. Now's your time to voice what you like or dislike. Here's a couple to kick us off:
I'm italian, so you know I love them. I have changed the recipes a bit though. I love taking Cherry or strawberry tomatoes and sautee them in olive oil and garlic with mushrooms. Cooked tomatoes are best for Lycopene and this was my own creation. My friend had me enhance this with hot chili peppers, but I like them either way. This is good with either fish or meat.
Steamed and light salt and pepper. Or raw on a salad is fine with me.
Yuk. Don't suggest anything. Just Yuk.
Yuk. But I'll eat them. Any suggestions.
I love sushi or sushimi. Cooked I prefer simple wild salmon. This is good Omega 3 stuff and I would love to see some recipes on you favorite way.
Dang I can't shake it completely. I know now not to burn or blacken it do to the carcingens, but I will still have it in moderation.
I'm getting bored with my recipes. my favorite is to slice pinapple and cook it with chicken breasts using a teriyaki marinade. With lettuce and tomato on a wheat bun. Yum. You add the mayo if you like. I'm fine dry. The pinapple make the 'wich moist enough. Any thoughts on how to enhance this one?
Love it. Most of it is good but dim sum is limited.
From the Myers book - Mediteranian food:
Just a few to see if this sparks discussion. If you have something you like that is good for the prostate diet by all means share it. I certainly have changed my diet but would welcome some recipes that are not too bland. I love salad dressing for example, but now use olive oil with red wine vinegar.
