    I have majority of any meat, but I have chicken breast (boneless skinless) already thawed in the fridge so looking for something to fix a great meal tomorrow night with. I love to try new things and these are normally on the menu so something new and fun and exciting to try:

    Chicken parmigiana
    Chicken alfedo
    Fried chicken
    chicken piccata
    BBQ chicken
    Buffalo chicken sandwiches or tenders
    baked chicken

    Any suggestions will be taken in consideration =)

    best suggestions gets best answer

    Hi guys. I’m trying to begin a vegan diet from a vegetarian one and I want to lose about 30lbs (I’m 5’3” and 167lbs). The only thing is I am a pretty horrible cook, not creative with food, and just don’t really know how to get my daily values out of some apples and a salad…that and I get hungry and start snacking on non-vegan crap!

    So what I really need is a link to or some ideas of quick and simple vegan meals. I already make a good deal of smoothies, so anything other than that. :) Thanks so much in advance!

    Do you know any recipes for cool, refreshing dip for french fries? Maybe something with sour cream or avocados. Thank you.
