What are your top 2 go-to meals during the work week? Please no fast food. I make Spaghetti pie, and Cauliflower gratin. They're not necessarily fast to make, but the leftovers are off the chain. I can kill almost a whole week off just these two.

Vegan Tuna and vegitable stir fry. Not been in a McDonalds in this decade.

shamefully I go at least once a week

@JaciBea I don't judgeπŸ™‚ it was making me sick, debilitating migraines, stopped the fast food, 5 years later went vegetarian and vegan 6 months ago... I’m much better... I’m not a militant veganπŸ™‚

@ArdentAtheist .. don't worry, I didn't take it that way : ) ... I hear that, I have been slowly trying to change my eating habits due to things like random nausea and headaches ( i know the mcds doesn't help and real talk, once a week is an improvement for me .. it's two blocks from work).. the dds I work for has been on a whole food, plant-based diet for almost a year and she says she feels so much better and has tons more energy but I don't think I could go that far lol

@JaciBea I never expected I could either, I was a bacon eating no way in hell and if I have to give up pizza fuck off, guy... but pain is a great motivator plus Guinness and Oreos are vegan, lol. ... until I was ready in my own time and way it wasn’t possible, it’s your path, do you, whatever anyone’s opinionπŸ™‚

i like pretty much anything in the crock pot because 1 it always tastes so much better 2 meat is always tender 3 not much fuss, just throw it all in in the morning and come home 2 a decent meal. my favorite crock pot meal (even tho its not strictly crock pot) is chicken caccatori. also for simple easy comfort food, i go with potatoes and gravy served with your choice of veggie, and we usually do it with pork chops or chicken, i used 2 always fry the meat but ive been trying healthier options sometimes and baked chicken isnt bad plus its easier since you don't have 2 keep checking and flipping it like you do on the stove. something a bit fun and easy if you have kiddos who want 2 help in the kitchen is english muffin pizzas. you just cut the muffin in half, put your favorite sauce on, i prefer marinara but do what you like. we use those slices of salami from the deli, they are just the right size, whatever kind of cheese you want, or my eldest doesnt like melted cheese, so whatever, olives, peppers, whatever sounds good or you have around the kitchen. just make it fun, only takes about 6 to 8 minutes in the oven. keeps the kids happy and busy, helps with the work load, teaches them a life skill, and bonus! my eldest son is super picky, this way can help get picky eaters 2 eat with less of a battle...sorry that was more than 2, but those are my favorites

Cumin crusted pork loin. So impressive, and so easy. Coat a pork loin in cumin, a sprinkle of garlic powder, salt, and pepper, and bake @ 400Β° until it smells done. Baked potatoes or rice (I use brown and cook with three parts chicken stock to one part orange juice) and roasted vegetable of choice.

And the leftovers are great to make cubanos with, too.

Taco salad is also popular with the kid, so it shows up pretty regularly.

Made the pork loin tonight, actually.

I have the luxury of teaching cookery to young people, so get to sample the morning's efforts for lunch at school.

Evenings are generally fairly simple affairs - a quick stir fry or salmon en papillote with steamed veg or grains. Sounds complex, but is a really simple healthy dish. Coat salmon steak in ginger and garlic paste, wrap in baking parchment and put into steamer with veg of choice (cauli/broccolli or whatever). Go for shower change out of work clothes. Serve with sweet chilli sauce or similar. Job done. One pot, minimal prep and washing up. Sorted.

Cheese sandwiches - all I eat for weeks on end!

Spaghetti pie, eh? What's that?

Cheese and chutney, cheese and tomato, cheese and marmite? - Can't be just cheese, too dry.

@CeliaVL Cheese and chutney for preference, cheese and pickled onions if I haven't got chutney, don't tend to do cheese and marmite because marmite is about the only food except cheese I like so I prefer to keep it as an alternative to prevent me starving to death if I ever go off cheese (unlikely, but better safe than sorry), cheese and brown sauce if I'm slumming it πŸ™‚

@Jnei And if you want to claim you are eating healthily, cheese and lettuce, cheese and cucumber. My husband likes crumbly Cheshire cheese with jam, but then he's from Crewe.

@CeliaVL Cheese with jam? A new one on me... I like that Cheshire cheese with blueberries or cranberries in it, though, so I can see how this might work quite well.

@Nurse-Quantros That looks delicious - thanks!

I eat bean & rice bowls most days. Oven fries & homemade tortilla chips are a couple favorites, too. 40 pounds down so far, & I'm not starving myself at all.

I eat the same thing every day..a can of one-serving Thai hot, spicy sardines with a cup of cho-wa tea for early breakfast.
No lunch.
Dinner is a boiled free range egg, freshly made cashew butter/mung bean sprout mash. I usually drink a cup of freshly juiced greens and carrots with hot Thai pepper.
Sometimes I eat a few raw almonds, or dried dates.

I eat whatever makes me feel good, and keeps my health improving. I drop any food that congests me or takes my energy.
I would eat more foods, but if it's not making me feel better, it's not worth it.

Portabello mushroom caps stuffed with a mixture of spinach and black rice (called "forbidden rice" - or use brown rice) topped with parmesan & cheddar cheese. Good as an appetiser or main course.

Dude! Spaghetti Pie is effing awesome! When I make anything it all depends what's in the cabinet, fridge or freezer and that usually depends on sales at the grocery store. Also depends on what type of diet I'm on. Currently very lo-carb so nothing starchy. I get my creative on.

Broiled salmon, rotisserie chicken, many salads, soup or chili from the freezer (I make big batches and freeze).

Cut broccolli, cauliflower, and add whole mushrooms. Toss with a little olive oil, spice however you like. Do this earlier in the day so the spices and oil can infuse with the veggies. Line a couple of baking sheets with foil. Bake at 425 for 25 min. Yummy! Also, if anyone tries this, you may want to turn on exhaust fan.

I make couscous which takes 5 minutes. Add quickly sauteed onions and peppers, corn, beans, taco spice to couscous. Use for burritos, tacos or tostados. Lasts for several days in frig. Healthy, low cost meat substitute. My favorite beans are the SW spicy brand.
