Low preparation meals

What are some meal ideas that take less than 30 minutes to throw together but are still healthy? I’m losing my mind eating chicken and rice and need variety. Preferably lower calorie, cutting

    You won't get far with chicken and rice anyway. Severely nutritionally void. Roiding bodybuilders can get away with eating nothing but that, your natty ass can't

    Invest in steak, beef, lamb, salmon, goat, spinach, quinoa, grits, avocados

    And eggs. Lots and lots of eggs

      I'm pretty decent I think, 5'6 140lbs ~12%bf but I've got mild anemia
      >RBC 4.68
      >HGB 13.8
      >HCT 41.2
      >Glucose 103

      I feel fine/energetic most of the time but I can't maintain an activity schedule higher than 3 training sessions a week on top of my normal activity. I basically just eat variations of chicken rice and vegetables and salmon every few days. Moving from white rice to brown because I just learned about Glycemic Index. What else am I missing here?

        Go on chronometer and plug in a few typical days. Check your micronutrient RDAs. You're probably deficient in some micros. That's common for people with very simple diets that don't eat out much. Regarding brown rice, I didn't digest it well. You have to cook brown rice 2-3x as long and ideally need pressure to predigest it thoroughly. The juice isn't worth the squeeze. It also tastes bad.

    1. Tomato, mushrooms, spinach omelet.
    2. Leek souflet (chop leek and onion and fry for five mins, add to nutmeg, half cup of evaporated milk and two eggs in a bowl. Mix it all together and bake in a pyrex at 200c for 15 mins.
    3. Sprinkle olive oil, garlic, and parmesan on salmon, trout, or chicken and bake at 220c for 20 mins.
    4. Pita pizza. Chop pita in half. Put a tiny bit of olive oil, chopped garlic and tomatoes, oregano and mozzarella on top. Bake at 180c for 10 mins.
    5. Rosemary buttered steak with fresh leafy greens on the side.
    6. Quinoa is a good alternative to rice.

    I eat this for lunch every day.
    >Sardines in olive oil
    >Two hard-boiled eggs
    >Two babybel cheese wheels
    >Low calorie hot sauce to taste
    >Two SunGold kiwis
    When bulking
    >Add instant raman
    I can eat this when working from home or from the office. Requires zero cooking beyond boiling water.

    Smoked salmon
    Roasted sweet potato
    Cream cheese

    Roast chicken breast
    Steamed, roast, whatever fresh vegetables


    Or embrace the fucking filthy single man in you and do
    Tuna from a tin
    Frozen peas
    Hot sauce

    Honestly just getting better and faster at basic kitchen things like mincing an onion will really speed up your dinner prep

    My dirtiest hardest bulk my staples were
    Rice beef eggs cheese
    >cook white or usually brown rice (set and let it cook)
    >brown some onion and a bunch of ground beef in wok
    >add some Hispanices, Worcestershire, and frozen peas, cook until peas are done
    >add cooked rice and some eggs
    >let eggs cook then add shredded cheese and hot sauce
    Easy to cook a bulk amount with just 2 pots, all together no measuring stuff. Can use onion and garlic powder or frozen version instead of chopping to save on dishes.

    >1.5-2 cups oats, 2-3 cups milk or so to cook, microwave
    >stir in 2 scoops vanilla protein, then a sliced banana and cinnamon
    No veggies but a lot of macros there and takes 5 minutes at most

    Pre-cook quinoa, or sweet potato etc
    >fry up some salmon or steak or chicken
    >microwave some frozen brocolli at the same time
    Takes like 10 minutes including washing up

    More recently I’ve been using a slow cooker, or full meal prepping for a week with longer-cook time dishes.

      Lol I just read
      >preferably lower calorie
      Just use lean beef or ground turkey instead. Low carb version is just cook the beef then add extra eggs, eat it like a meat cake. Use skim milk option for oats.

  12. 4 months ago

    Lean meat
    Cheap, maybe frozen vegetables
    Throw it in a frying pan and Hispanice it up (literally). Maybe add some sauce too.
    There are countless variations. It doesn't have to be only chicken breast and broccoli.
    Maybe some potatoes or rice on the side if you don't mind carbs

    Anon's one pot bachelor chow
    "Better than dog food, but not by much"

    500g diced meat portion (Beef, lamb, chicken, cuts, organ, steak, whatever)
    1x onion
    2x garlic cloves
    2x 240g tinned beans
    1x 240g tinned mushroom slices

    Hispanice mix (my fave):
    2 tsp paprika
    1 tsp tumeric
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp cracked pepper
    1 tsp sugar
    2 tsp MSG (do it you coward)
    Chilli flakes or Franks red hot sauce

    dice onion and garlic, S&P, cook until tender. COok either in oil for good taste or lemon juice if cutting and/or want some acidics in there
    Throw in meat portion and cook until browned, add Hispanice mix
    Drain and throw in mushrooms and give it a good bash on high with the Hispanice and meat fat flavor
    Drain and add beans, turn down and stir until cooked through

    that's two dinners for me and pretty much minmaxed my evening meal preparation because even I got sick of reheating frozen prepped meals. made me some chicken hearts the other day.
