Hey, so I'll be left at home for a week whilst my parents go camping- we're avoiding me at risk for covid/ isolation as I'm going on a trip to London with my friend. It obvs means I'm cooking for myself. Does anyone have any simple meal ideas that can be narrowed down to make a portion or be re-heated the next day. Not a very picky eater just don't like spicy food much. I can cook well its just ideas i need. Thanks

Curries are pretty easy to make, then with the leftover rice you can have fried rice the next day.

any pasta dishes

make spaghetti and meatballs, make pasta bake, make mac and cheese, alfredo, the possibilities are endless. I'm not saying pasta just because of my name and pfp.

i would also say baked chicken.... you just wash chicken, add seasoning and slap it in the oven then suddenly you have a ton of cooked meat for about 2-3 days to eat with anything

i would say rice but some people think you can cook rice like pasta, theres so many ways to mess up rice without a rice cooker

Here’s what I make for when I go to work and make 3 batches at once. Taste nice too, the idea is to keep it in the fridge and microwave when ready. 🙂

Rice
Mushrooms
Peas
Broccoli
Red peppers

I keep them in bento boxes so nothing mixes so I have different flavours and it doesn’t all blend into one. The only thing I mix is the mushrooms and rice so the rice absorbs the flavour of the mushrooms. 🙂

Pasta is good - and when you reheat it, it has fewer available calories, which is a bonus! Also, if you really don't want to cook, then you could always pick out a healthy ready meal and put some simple veg with it to make a sensible meal with minimal cooking and preparation - particularly if it's only for a few days.

Why not? All I've seen on that is about water splashing about which is easily fixed by cleaning afterwards.

You’re essentially spreading the bacteria on the outside of the chicken around the sink. Simply throwing it in the oven and cooking it appropriately “cleans” it. 🙂

I had to edit my message because what i originally said was a little rude but regardless of you washing your chicken, you still need to use cleaning products on any kitchen equipment /surfaces you have used to prepare the chicken. It is quite difficult to completely stop the spread of bacteria from chicken, however, as cleaning products will bw required to get rid of germs left by chicken regardless it doesnt make much of a difference whether or not you wash the chicken.

Im not sure if you ever disinfect your kitchen sink and sanitize the area, but this has been done in my family continuously because its not just meat that carries bacteria that goes into your sink. As my family also participates in selling food, it is their responsibility to check the quality of all meat they use and make sure that everything inappropriate to sell is removed.

So after saying this id just like to say thanks for thinking of my safety but cleaning chicken has more to it than rinsing it

I like cooking something healthy and easy, for example, baked fish with vegetables. It's easy to make this dish tasty with teriyaki sauce, for example. Actually, I managed to lose 10 kg last month and I am really happy with the result. I eat healthy food only, exercise regularly, take Xenical from Canada Drugs, sleep well, reduce stress, and meditate.
