    What Was On Your Plate the Last Time You Ate?

    Mine was roast chicken, roast potatoes, cream spinach & butternut with cheese sauce and a large glass of wine next to it.

    my most recent meal was chicken pot pie, although it was on a styrofoam container instead of a plate.

      Frozen precooked meals can be convenient and tasty, but they're loaded with chemicals, and are generally shit for your health imho.

            I assume it probably was frozen and precooked, but I got it from a carryout restaurant so I don't really know for sure.

            Either way, my cooking know-how consists pretty much of grilled cheese, hot dogs, and Mac and cheese. So limiting myself to what I know how to cook is probably even less healthy.

                You need to learn how to cook or get a bitch.

                Eating better is easy.

                1 Get a container of oatmeal. Put some in a microwave-safe dish with some water. You can generally follow the instructions on the container, but the main thing is that you M-wave it enough and that it doesn't overflow. You can learn to eyeball the amount of oatmeal to use and water. Throw some walnuts and ginger powder on it after if you want to get fancy.

                2 Get a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, or frozen veg. of your choice. Put some in a microwave-safe dish, add a little water. Cook it on high uncovered for about 7-8 minutes. Take a rubber band and wrap it around the portion that you don't use in the bag and put in the freezer.

                3 Get a potato cooker bag. "Potato Express" is one brand, but any will do. Wash a potato and put it in the bag, microwave for about 4 1/2 minutes on high. Then flip it and cook it a little more if you want. You could also just let it sit in the M-wave for a while, and the residual heat will finish cooking it.

                4 You can get a can of tuna (chunk light is best), drain it, and throw it on top of mixed vegetables. You could also mix it with some mayo and make a sandwich.

                5 You can add a little butter or olive oil to 2 & 3

                6 Get a can of black beans, or any beans that you like. The ones that are just preserved in salt are the best, but you've still got to drain them and rinse them, cause otherwise there's way too much salt. If you don't want to use a caulender, you can just leave the lid of the can attached, and keep adding water and swirling it around, then use the lid to keep the beans in when you drain the can.

                7 Get some ground turkey. Low-fat is more expensive, but worth it imho. Scoop some out with a fork, put it in a microwave-safe dish (ideally flat). Flatten it into a patty. Microwave on high for 1 1/2- 2 1/2 minutes, or until it looks thoroughly cooked.

                8 Spray a frying pan with cooking spray. Put the heat of the stove top to about 8/10. Crack 4 eggs into the pan. After a couple minutes, cut it into chunks with the edge of a spatula and flip. You can reduce the heat after you flip

                9 You can also bake some fish or chicken covered with mayo and bread crumbs. Cooking times and temps will vary with the thickness and total amount cooked. You could look it up online.

                10 Rice is good too, but it takes longer to cook.


                You can live just on the things I've listed above. Cheap, fast, easy, nutritious.

                Hopefully you or some other single guy will benefit from this.

                  directed to this post from the Den.. this is all good advice. So many people might feel they're doing okay now but are going to have a shitty old age because of a shitty diet.

                    lol! idk why but this really amused me because i've done it so many times when i can't be bothered to use extra equipment that i'll need to wash, but it's such specific detailed instructions in this context :-)


                    And yeah. The lack of vegetables people eat makes me anxious on their behalf, lol. The book I keep going on about (10% human) taught me we eat like 80g less fibre than we used to. And this will lead to "leaky gut" where all this stuff gets into the blood that shouldn't. Because there isn't enough of a bacteria that encourages mucus lining.
