I keep eating ready meals which are starting to taste stale and I can't imagine the lack of nutrients and fresh ingredients being beneficial for my health. Also it's expensive.

People will tell you that cooking is easy but I have so little energy that I can't even get myself to follow those cooking recipes that require many steps and different ingredients.

I tried just eating frozen vegetables with salt and butter but they taste bland like that. Tried to improve it with some premade sauces but they all taste terrible.

So anyone got some REALLY easy to make meals?

I am getting better at making baked goods such as cakes and brownies in the microwave. Still can't get cookies right yet.

It is all about timing.

I boiled some frozen halibut and dropped it on some steamed rice, then I doused it with soy sauce, it tastes better than it sounds…I mean, it's better than a handful of bread slices I guess

it was really low effort, just dumping some crap into water and walking away for an hour

>get frozen vegetables and meat
>put butter in pot
>throw vegetals in on low heat until soft
>cut meat in slice
>salt, pepper on each side
>little oil in pan
>put meat in pan on medium heat

I eat something like this almost every day. It's really easy to make. It only takes you 2 minutes to clean up afterwards and the frozen vegetables are dirt cheap. Meat can be expensive, so I'd recommend buying in bulk and freezing it.

Hey, let’s not let this thread die yet. I’m thinking of making a soup but I’m pretty lazy tbh. My parents give me money every week to prevent me from working so I just buy some takeaway food normally.

my go-to easy tasty meal

honestly, you search "easy recipe" online and you're greeted with tons of guides featuring complicated seasonings using all sorts of ingredients you've never even heard of.
mommy taught me these simple cooking techniques "that everyone should know". the point she made clear: no need to try and be a normalfaggot facebook masterchef. these recipes are easy to conceive, don't take a whole lot of effort and taste great because I made it myself. thanks mommy!

I don't consider cooking a hobby, likely it will never become one, but it's a now a part of my daily routine which I look forward to, especially on weekends when the pace is slower =)

Is icecream hard to make?

Not really.
Though if you make it by hand it takes quite a bit of physical energy. With a machine is is just about timing and getting too crazy with what you put in the mix. other then that you just pour in the mix, wait, and then get your ice cream.

Hey wiz bro, here's a recipe I use for chicken, you have to 1 time buy some spices and then its 10 minutes prep max.

2 Chicken breast
1 Tomato
1 Bell pepper
Celery salt, black pepper, oregano, garlic, basil, cilantro,
Lemon and Lime juice

1. Rinse the chicken and put it in a baking pan with a little olive oil.

2. Add the lemon and lime juice, then the spices, then another squirt of lemon and lime.

3. Cut up the veggies and put on top.

4. Bake covered for 40 minutes. Then eat.

It's a one time trip to the grocery store and then you can make tasty, healthy chicken pretty easily. takes a while to get a feel for exactly how much of each spice you need but that's part of the fun of learning to cook.

Bananas and whatever is on sale. I think I get some slack because I'll eat a lot of fruit when it goes on sale. For example, once, eastern peaches were like, 50 cents a pound. I got like 20 peaches and ate them in two weeks or so. When mangoes were 50 cents per mango, I got 10 or so to eat. I would eat about two fruits a day, not including any bananas I eat, which is also about two a day. I like to eat grapes too, preferably red. They were being sold for about 79 cents a pound at a store, so I got a few pounds and ate them within a few days. I also eat apples when on sale, but they usually go for about $2.99 for a three pound bag. Not too bad, but not as good as the other prices listed. They're on sale now, so I'll probably get some now. This goes for all apples too, so when Rome apples were on sale, I would cook them in my oatmeal, which I would eat with frozen berry medleys or whatever frozen berries I had.

I don't eat as much fruit as one would think though. Most times, I just eat bananas, and I barely eat breakfast since I get up late or just skip it. Price is a big determining factor of what I eat, honestly. It might just be expensive though compared to not eating these fruits. I'm kinda self conscious about spending a lot, so if anyone thinks I'm spending a lot for fruit, tell me.

I boiled a whole king salmon this week, fresh from the river. It was cooked through so perfectly, and fast, even our picky bengal cat ate some.That fish was damn good.

I don't know why people act grossed out over boiling fish, when you'd boil any other meat (including seafood) when making stews and soups and shit. If you want effortless but healthy cooking, boil a fish.

Anyone know a good recipe for stuffed shells/lasagna? My aunt taught me how to make it the plain old way: Ricotta cheese, mozzarella, parsley flakes, tomato sauce, ground beef, eggs, salt pepper, you know the usual. While I usually love it this way, I would like to make it a bit more flavorful.

When you make stews and soups, less moisture is lost from the meat because it's already surrounded by fluid, and any fat that leaks remains in the broth to be consumed.
When you boil meats on their own, the fat, and the flavor it carries, is usually diminished.

lately I've been eating raw tortillas from the bag, each one is worth something like three slices of bread so it's filling…enough, and unlike bread they don't go bad, I've kept bags of tortillas at room temperature for 5 months at a time

it lets me stay in my room instead of dealing with the bullshit waiting to ambush me outside my door

I eat instant mashed potatoes pretty often. Just heat water in a teapot, put instant potatoes, butter and salt in a bowl then pour the boiling water over them, mix together & add milk. I just eat it with rotisserie chicken & bbq sauce. It takes no effort to prepare and you don't have to wash anything except a bowl and a spoon.

In the morning just eat instant oatmeal or cornflakes with whole milk and throw in some blueberries so you don't get scurvy.

You could just bulk cook rice (just drop it in a pot with boiling water) and chicken (cut into small pieces and throw on a pan, If it's non-stick you can skip oil even). It's way cheaper than pre-packaged ready food and still takes very little time to prepare if you plan a little bit ahead (say, 5 days or so, Just put everything in containers so it doesn't spoil).

Not sure why but i can eat this stuff every day for years and i just don't care, Cooking tasty food seems like a waste of time for me, I don't even bother with adding salt or spices.

if you have depression your problem is inflammation. Eat more greens and fewer carbs parcticularly wheat. I'd recommend intermitant fasting as well.

I have one of those plastic microvave dishes made for cooking the bricks of ramen noodles fast.
Has a fill line so it comes out the same every time, I then pour it into a paper bowl, add the seasoning, and stir.
Make making ramen even easier and faster, while being much cheaper then cup noodles.
