  • Nuts vs cheese vs chocolate

    I'm having a little situation. On sundays my favorite shop (a hippie shop with everything organic and grassfed etc) is closed. So I always buy sunday's food on saturday. I buy a lot. However, sometimes a sunday turns out a lot more active than I expect (went basketballing a couple of hours today). And I am still very hungry at the end of the day while all the food is already gone. I usually take a tablespoon of coconut oil but I can't handle that very well an any more leaves me nauseated (yet still hungry). So I need some other filling food. The "regular grocery store" is always open on sundays. I can get some raw cheese there, macadamias or dark chocolate (85-99%). These seem the best choices there. Which one seems best health-wise? Or does anybody know other calorie dense foods which don't require cooking? (living with my parents, they don't want me cooking all the time)
    well then

    Honestly, I'd have to get all three! Sounds like a great combination.

    For non-cooking, I'll mash up an avocado and mix it with chopped bacon, maybe a little mayo, maybe even chopped hardboiled egg. Apple slices make good dippers, too.

    Deviled eggs are handy to keep in the fridge.

    Cold sliced steak with mustard.

    Thin-sliced ham rolled around a pickle.

    Frozen berries mixed with coconut milk/cinnamon/vanilla makes a great summer snack.

    Your folks don't have a microwave?

      you shop everyday for food?

      i'd stock up on some wild salmon or tuna, which is sold in pouches and keep that around for something more substantial than a handful of nuts or a few bites of chocolate.

      i always have hard-boiled eggs in the fridge too.
      As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

          Yeah I shop everyday. With the amount I eat it hardly fits in the fridge to stock up for 2 days. Also because I have to share of course with my parents. But 3/4 of the fridge is always my food for a day. The other 1/4 is for both my parents for an entire week

              squirt some lemon over the avocado and it will last a few days. the surface may oxidize and go brown, but it will be fine to eat. whole and ripe, they keep in the fridge at least a week.

                Get your own fridge. I bought one of those mini-fridges for $50 and it holds almost all my food. It's a lot easier not having to worry about running out of something because somebody else took the privilege of eating it without asking.

                I also shop for food everyday. I have a Whole Foods and Trader Joes a mile away.

                  Macademia nuts , hands down, have the most health benefits. Depends on which food you would find the most satiating though.
                  "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

                  In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                    Shell some pistachio nuts, melt some chocolate in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl over simmering water on the stove. Stir in nuts, pour/spoon (depending on consistency) onto flat baking tray. As cooling, score into squares and then voila, a nutty chocolately treat.

                        Gadsie, I eat the whole avocado and call it a meal. I have been told that if you leave the seed in the second half and wrap it tightly in plastic wrap (to keep air out) it will keep for a couple of days. It may discolor, as was mentioned, but that won't hurt.

                          You can only find 3 things you deem healthy at a regular grocery store?

                            He did say he couldn't cook, but that still leaves tuna, sardines, fruit, vegetables and the like.

                              Kids these days.. Who's buying your food?
                              If I explained this complex dilemma to my parents when I was a kid I would of been told to shut up and eat my damn sandwich my parents made for me or else I could starve.
