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?

This can barely be considered cooking, but I do enjoy eating apple slices dipped in honey very much. They make for a really nice and sweet treat.

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

this is very true. it's pretty humid where i'm at but those tortilla wrap things just sit there waiting for me, refusing to go moldy or anything. i appreciate foods that can last a while

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.

'deenz once a day
vit d3 tablets
iodine (salt or kelp tablets)

the easy meal is rice topped by a salad topped by fish and a few fried eggs. Forget cooking just eat 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.

Why are you using a rice cooker rather then a slow cooker for this?
Slow cooker is better for soups and stews, is the same price, and is good at more things.
Rice cooker is great at rice but mediocre at everything else.

That said I hate cleaning both so I usually pan fry or microwave everything.
I used to bake using disposable pans but my table top oven broke.

I sometimes make pasta. Aglio e oglio is simple.
>add water and salt (plenty) to pan, put on high
>grind up garlic and pepper
>when pasta is boiled enough dump almost all of the water, add olive oil + garlic and pepper, turn heat down a little bit (for the oil)
>move around in pan with wooden spoon until it has soaked up the oil and doesn't slide around pan so much

But now I do it simpler, I cook with marinara. I don't bother with pepper or garlic.

At least where I live all this asian stuff is quite expensive, even their rice and pasta. Regular seasonings and herbs on the other hand are very cheap.

These threads are difficult, because there's this expectation that if you're going to spend the effort to write down a cooking recipe, it should be a minimal level of difficulty, because to not do so would be "stupid," or would "look too dumb if I were to post it." Therefore, the recipes that tend to get posted, are way too high level.

If it were possible to make this thread anew, I would entitle it, "cooking hacks" or some other such trite bullshit. Because THEN you'd get REALLY easy recipes like "you can just bake an onion," which I'm guessing is what you're really after OP.

Sandwiches are the easiest/laziest way to get some degree of proper food, along with a lot of hand fruit. If you tend towards weight gain, use the 45cal/“light” bread. When you have more energy, use hummus, cucumbers, tomatoes, mixed greens. When you have no energy, even plain deli meat on bread is probably better than a frozen dinner.

The slices are a bit thinner and they add some bulking/thickening stuff like guar/xanthan gum and cellulose fiber (which is basically tree bark and plant leaves) that don’t get digested by humans. It just tastes like less sweet bread to me.

Same where I live. Outside of the generic paprika and stuff you're paying out the asshole.

Though doctors like to prescribe drugs. A lot of times depression is caused by a nutrient deficiency.

I cook a lot of stews. Try not to use to much meat, but lots of veggies. It's cheap and helps to heal the body.

I also buy bone broth, this helps to heal your digestive tract. This means that you absorb more of the nutrients you ingest(this is a bit expensive)

Also recommend daily cod liver oil. Deficiency in Vitamin D and Omega 3 can cause depression.

I found once I change my diet to this my depression wasn't as bad, and helped other issues I had.
