Lots of ‘typical Sam meals’, as a friend calls them. Eggs, cheese, bacon, Greek yogurt, chicken and pork are my usual protein sources, combo’d with fresh fruit, berries and veggies, and maybe some bread or potato. I also eat a lot of canned salmon mashed with avocado and spices for as quick and easy lunch, but I didn’t have any photos..

In general I go for veggies that don’t need cooking cause I’m a lazy ass. Greek yogurt always goes with chia or flax seeds, peanut butter, sunflower seeds and maple syrup.

Something chocolatey is usually involved too.


cheesy apple bake

Ingredients: apples, onions, potatoes, salt, pepper, cinnamon, cheese.

This is a really great recipe for fall/winter nights when you want something hot and hearty! It has carbs and protein from the potatoes and cheese, and is pretty easy to make.

  1. Cut up the apples, potatoes, and onions into chunks. 
  2. Spread them out on a lightly greased pan and sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and cinnamon.
  3. Add a layer of cheese. Personally, my favorite to use in this recipe is yellow cheddar, but there are lots of good options–provolone, aged mozzarella, whatever. Pre-sliced and pre-shredded cheese are great for this because they spread evenly, but whatever works. 
  4. Bake at 350 until the cheese is melty. I like my potatoes/apples very brown and the cheese crusty, so I wait until the cheese starts bubbling. 
  5. Eat it while it’s hot! 
the signs as good ways to eat potatoes
  • Aries:with cheese
  • Taurus:fried in oil until crisp
  • Gemini:bake them and then scoop out the insides and mix the insides with cheese and them bake them some more
  • Cancer:how many potatoes do you think you can eat before you die from eating so many potatoes? probably a lot, right?
  • Leo:mashed with butter
  • Virgo:remember to wash them first. they grow in the ground did you know that?
  • Libra:are potatoes gluten free? i don't know how gluten works i guess.
  • Scorpio:eat a raw potato like an apple
  • Sagittarius:spend the entire weekend going from fast food place to fast food place ordering fries. make a chart about it. eat nothing else this weekend.
  • Capricorn:the best potatoes are potatoes prepared by someone else
  • Aquarius:sweet maui onion kettle style potato chips
  • Pisces:stick em inna stew

Goooooood morning Pocket!!! So I was working on mocha cupcakes and I thought - why stop? Why are we limited by our ridiculous conventions of the normal? Why not go wild?

So if you lot would like to drop by, we have bacon flavoured … well, everything. Donuts, cupcakes, and cake. Maple bacon too, for you sweet-tooths! 

Savoury cheese cake. Cheese stuffed donuts. Pizza cheesecake.

Salted caramel. Chilli chocolate.

Chocolate coated potato chips (my favourite, personally). 

And did I mention the mocha cupcakes - they’re chocolate cupcakes with a molten coffee centre that melts in your mouth


2/2: another productive day! 🌿
today i nearly finished my modern russian history essay that i have been stressing about af AND i feel like i did really well on my russian language homework.

here’s what i ate! lots of sweets but oh well!

breakfast: maple oatmeal with 1 scoop of brown sugar / tiny apple / 8 oz coffee with cream

lunch: ¾ cup rice noodles with baby bok choy, green beans, and veggie soy sauce / 12 oz skim latte

dinner: 1 cup red curry potatoes and tempeh / ½ cup broccoli / ½ cup zucchini / 8 oz republic chai tea

snacks: 1 small navel orange / 1/3 cup orange sherbet / mini apple cupcake with cream cheese frosting / 8 pieces hot tamales candy / 1 sq. lindt orange chocolate


tonight’s dinner is going to be a little tribute to my great grandma (who would be about 102 if she were still with us). she would always make us grilled cheese sandwiches, green beans, fried potatoes, and then give us a big cup of black tea with a little milk and lots of sugar :p that was my favorite.. so i’m going to kind of recreate that tonight. she was teaching me how to play the piano before she passed, and i owe a lot of my cooking skills to her. she was probably the kindest person i’ve met in my whole life.

Should help a little! This is a vegan blog so I’m not going to suggest you eat dairy and eggs, because I know it’s not healthy and like meat-eating it goes against what I stand for personally but there’s the vegan food pyramid, can add/take out whatever you wanna.

I eat lots of sauteed dark greens, veggies, beans (I eat lots of burritos), almond milk, rice, potatoes, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, quinoa, avocado and other fruit, hummus and pasta. I also eat junk food too vegan mac n cheese, pizza, vegan ice cream and hot pockets but those things aren’t needed.

I totally understand the pills thing because I’m the same way. I do take a B12 supplement. If you wanna read about the kinds here’s a post. I take these. It’s not only vegans who need to worry about b12, it’s everyone really. B12 is included in some foods but it’s not really as reliable. I don’t think supplements for anything else are needed at all. You can find it all through food and eating correctly. I’m happy you like the blog. :3

Easy Baked Sweet Potato

This is a meal I made a lot in college, because it only requires a microwave and 10 minutes of your day. :) Really healthy, filling, easy, and versatile. You can adjust the recipe according to what foods you’ve got, what flavours you’re craving, and how many spoons you’ve got at the time. :)


  • One sweet potato 
  • Toppings of your choice! Below I’ve listed 2 options: 

1. If you’re feeling like a savoury dish, maybe for a main course, you can add some…

  • beans from a can (I like black beans, they’re super healthy and filling) 
  • some sour cream or plain yogurt
  • your favourite cheese, crumbled into small pieces
  • spices like paprika, oregano, and thyme

2. If you’re looking for a sweet treat, maybe for a little dessert, you can add some…

  • butter/margarine/earth balance/your preferred butter substitute
  • cinnamon and/or nutmeg
  • sugar, honey, or maple syrup
  • raisins or cut up dried fruit
  • some sliced almonds/pecans/walnuts/your favourite nut or seed. If you’re feeling up for it, roasting the nuts/seeds in a pan or toaster for a few minutes kicks the flavour up a notch. :) 

Kitchen Tools You’ll Need:

  • A microwave
  • A knife
  • A piece of wax paper or paper towel 
  • A plate (optional)
  1. First, wash the sweet potato in some warm water. 
  2. Dry it off. Place it on a plate, if you’re using one, and put a piece of wax paper or paper towel on top of it. You can also just take a piece of wax paper or paper towel and wrap it around the potato. 
  3. Place your potato in the microwave and cook it on high power for 5 minutes. 
  4. After those 5 minutes, flip the potato over and cook for another 5 minutes on high power. Be careful with your fingers, because you’ll be playing a real life game of hot potato. :) 
  5. Take your potato out of the microwave and let it cool for a minute or two. 
  6. Slice the potato lengthwise, down the center. 
  7. Add your favourite toppings. I like adding the wet ingredients first, because the other toppings can stick to them. 

If you only end up eating half of the potato, the other half can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. 

Enjoy your meal! Happy noms. :) 

I’m learning how to make braided bread for Imbolc. Braided bread represents the goddess Brighid as the bride, her fertility, and her position as a hearth goddess. This approaching season is about the winter turning to spring and life returning to the earth. Sheep and ewes began having babies and their milk flowed. The first flowers began to bloom. The dark days will soon be over. Appropriate foods to eat at Imbolc include a lot of cheese, milk, cream, bread, eggs, lamb, ham, winter vegetables like potatoes and onions, etc. Braided bread with butter for dipping is a very appropriate and asks us to remember Brighid if we are those who work with her. I like the food at this upcoming season. I hope I can do braided bread well.

Easy Ratatouille

Who would have thought that something this healthy could be so damn good. I never liked eating vegetables as a child, so as an adult I didn’t know how to cook mixed vegetables, since I had avoided them for so long. I’d buy vegetables in frozen bags and they always came out bland and boring, unless I added cheese or a sauce to make them more appetizing.

So this recipe was a revelation. It’s now obvious that fresh vegetables taste better, but the key ingredient to this meal, is the fresh thyme. When I make this recipe, I make a lot, since I can then have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, like so:

Breakfast: With hash browns or fried potatoes and a poached egg. 
Lunch: Over a bed of spinach and a slice of toast. 
Dinner: Over pasta with parmesan cheese and a glass of wine. 

Ingredients: 2 yellow onions, 1 red pepper, 1 yellow pepper, 2 zucchinis, 3 heirloom tomatoes, 3 cloves of minced garlic, 1 bay leaf, 3 sprigs of fresh thyme, a few tsp olive oil, ¼ cup dry white wine, salt and pepper

  1. Finely dice the onions, peppers, zucchinis and tomatoes. 
  2. In a large pot, heat a few tsp olive oil and cook the onions over medium heat, until translucent. 
  3. Add the peppers, stir and cook for 3-5 minutes, then add the zucchini, minced garlic, bay leaf, thyme and season with salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 5 more minutes.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes and white wine. Lower the heat, cover and cook for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve traditionally with a sunny-side up egg on top. 
jacket potatoes (can be made vegan/vegetarian/meat-eater easily!!)

I love making these because its so easy and is very filling!

First you get however many potatoes you want (i usually have one potato for each person), leave the skin on and wash them thoroughly to get the dirt off

then you stab them a couple of times with a fork so the heat can be let out when you cook them, and you can cook them either in the microwave for 8-12 minutes for a medium to biggish sized potato, or in the oven for 45 minutes (at 400 F or 200 C) I usually put them in the microwave because its a lot quicker, just in a bowl (but no foil!!)

then you can add as many condiments as you like to bulk it up and make it yummier, such as

mashed avocado, grated cheese (vegan cheese is pretty yum on it too), sour cream, beans (the ones you put on burritos are really nice in this really flavoursome), butter (like herb butter or garlic butter or normal butter whatever you like), little fried bits of bacon or ham, salsa, whatever you like really :)

then you cut your potato into an X shape and put the condiments inside and eat it! 

its pretty easy to make this vegan/vege/or meat eater-y, its really just about the condiments you put on (those were just some i could think of that i’ve had before that have been great)

i love this meal because you only really need one potato with condiments to really fill you up, so its really cheap and pretty easy and with microwave theres not clean up and theres always leftovers to have for the next couple of days which makes clean up (for condiments) even easier too because you just have to put it in the fridge!

3 Weeks Post OP! **UPDATE**

I have to say at 3 weeks I am so proud of my weight loss progress. I cannot believe I’ve gone from my highest weight of 285 to now 241!!! It’s insane and just proves that commitment and hard work makes shit happen.

So at this point I am still eating a lot of soups and soft food as well as about 1-2 protein shakes a day (if I can bear it). I still love a few bites of seasoned cottage cheese, mashed potatoes, yogurt, and popsicles. I have not felt dizzy or extremely exhausted for a few days now which is great and means that I’m finally getting enough liquids and nutrition down which is such a relief! I really did not feel like getting another IV put in. There are a few other foods I would like to try out in the next week or so but I get so terrified of getting sick, so I’m just  taking everything at my own pace and that seems to work just fine for me. I have yet to get sick since I’ve been home (besides from medicine) and I want to keep it that way! haha.

I’m waiting a while longer before I hit the gym again because I don’t want to over do it but I definitely feel like I could be better about going walking and riding my exercise bike.

Some questions…

What were some yalls favorite foods to have a few bites of at the beginning of your post op?

What type of exercises did yall do while you were healing, or how soon did you start getting back to your regular routine?

Have a great day, loves.

i feel like eddie is big into comfort food like potato chips n mac and cheese, he clearly has a lot of stress/anger and i imagine binging a little kinda helps him calm down. i just have a v vivid image of him living in an apartment and eatin a big bowl of chips while watchin some kinda horror film?? just a rando headcanon,

I can see that tbh!! I mean, Eddie’s a (fairly active) big guy, and considering he’s off doing… Venom-y stuff, he probably burns through calories like a mofo. So I imagine he eats a lot, particularly comfort food and things made with meat. He’s a big savory dish guy. (That said, he probably can’t afford a lot of the good stuff v often, so it’s a lot of cheap mac and cheese and Ramen.)

I guarantee you movie night always has a bunch of snacks.
