If you are a student and want to know how to cook, or you just started cooking and really want to be better. Maybe you have been at it for awhile and never got good. I suggest checking out Gordon Ramsay’s youtube channel. Years ago I started cooking for my family as my mom worked and didn’t have time. I learned what I could from my Grandmother, however I did not learn everything. I went to the master himself, Gordon. Actually I just watched his show on the Cooking Channel. Practicing every night to perfect many basic skills. I found myself getting better, more experimental and now its to the point my mother refuses to cook anymore. Her own skills dimmed as I polish mine, I honestly spoiled her and my siblings. (I even got the esteemed position of cooking for the holidays! A rare achievement in my family, only reserved to the Grandmother or mother of the house) He explained it in a way so simplistic I got it immediately. I learned many techniques and overtime learned how to do some of the more “complex” stuff. He doesn’t just do Beef Wellington or all expensive foods either. He does really simple stuff like Tomato soup to Curries.
If you want to know more youtubers, check out Binging With Babish, Life Of Boris (not a cooking channel, but he teaches people how to make many delicious Slavic folk dishes and drinks), Emmy In Japan (She does vintage recipes) Great Depression Cooking (She passed away in 2016! RIP)
If you already know these youtubers, right on! If you don’t, check them out! I like shares on what other youtubers I might not know of.

What are say 3 of your go to recipes for breakfast lunch and dinner atm? Also, can you post a grocery list as of now as well? Also a runner in grad school now living on my own and im new to all this
ooooh i feel you anon!
my 3 go-to breakfast recipes: any sort of oatmeal variation (overnight or hot in the morning…i have a lot of these under the /tagged/myfood tag), eggs + avocado toast with hot sauce & fruit, or Kodiak Cakes mix with pb/syrup/butter whatever…those are my top 3! lunch is honestly always like pbj with snacks (yogurt + granola, hummus + crackers, salad, protein bar, granola bar, trail mix, cereal), or a turkey sandwich, egg salad sandwich…those are always the same. dinner is always like a veggie, carb, protein, fat…my go-to recipes are always “bowls” like homemade burrito bowls, teriyaki bowls, i get ideas from Instagram haha. Shalene’s run fast eat slow books are amazeeee!
I had breakfast (scrambled eggs) and lunch (goddess bowl with giant couscous, leaves, avo, prawns, hummus and salad) and first tea (homemade cauliflower and cheddar soup) and now heading out for second tea (pizza and garlic bread)
This actually didn’t start out as a meal prep, but the sheer quantity of leftovers I had by the end of the night necessitated a few Tupperwares in the fridge. Other than that, not much to say, so I’ll spare you the lengthy introduction and just jump right in!
What are some good healthy kosher foods/meals you can eat repetitively? I’m an autistic person who samefoods (eats the same food almost daily, sensitive due to sensory issues) and I’m also concerned about my health as I consume too much sugar. I am seriously interested in conversion and would love some good kosher meals I can eat regularly! Bonus points if potatoes.
I have always loved cooking. It’s so fun and creative to make meals for my family and I. Since graduating from university a few months ago it’s frustrating that because of COVID-19 pandemic no one is hiring right now.
So I am cooking everything from breakfast to dessert. In this hard time we as a nation are going through I found cooking to increase my happiness. Additionally spending time in the kitchen has ease my stress about not finding a job right away and cured my restlessness with being safe in my house all day.

I finished my 30-day keto reset on Thursday, took a couple days off (had some dumplings on Saturday mmm) and then started another 30-day round on Sunday, so today’s day 4!
I measured my waist on day 30 and it was at 35”. I predicted that I would need an additional month to get down to my pre-quarantine tummy (34”) and I was correct. Hopefully by the end of this round, I’ve lost an inch.
I’m still sticking to only keto-friendly foods and not eating before bed. Next week, I’m going to transition into a pseudo-OMAD kinda thing. I work night shift, so I usually make brunch (pictured here) around 2:30pm, go to work at 5pm, have a big lunch/dinner at 9:30pm, and go home at 3:30am. I’m realizing that I kinda hate cooking before work. I’d honestly rather lay around or do chores. And since my job is so sedentary, I really don’t need the calories. So starting next week, I’m going to start replacing my brunch meal with a protein shake. I think this will save me time, money, and calories.
I’ve actually made this twice in the last month, both because I hardly have the time to cook anymore (it’s probably one of the easiest things to meal prep, to be honest), and Alex seemed to really enjoy it. Unfortunately, I only have pictures from the first time I made it, so you’ll have to bear (bare?) with me a little bit–the recipe below might be slightly different from what’s above. I improved on it quite a bit the second time around!
Breakfast is my favorite, but I don’t always have time in the mornings for it so it’s a treat whenever I can savor it. Today I made a sandwich with Sola bread (3 carbs per), one egg over easy, bacon, and a spread of cream cheese. Yum!
It seems like all I’ve been cooking lately are variations of pasta dishes or tacos, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing! Some of the wilder creations have actually turned out delicious. I’ve been wanting to try working with fish on the grill for a while now, and shrimp seemed like the best place to start. What was born was a surprisingly light, flavorful dish that would have been perfect for summer if I’d only thought of it sooner!
