  • Something filling that's not cooked?

    Hey everyone,

    As it happens my stepdad doesn't really like me cooking in the morning (or at all, really).
    I can understand this, as I've messed up some times (cooked bacon once and I assume there was too much grease in the pan, causing it to get burnt instead of cooked... lots of smoke and an angry stepdad. It was just the last batch though, fortunately ). And I'm pretty forgetful of things, so he's afraid that I'll forget to turn off the gass and burn down the house. We don't have a stove that cuts off the gass after ten minutes or something, unfortunately.

    I'm wondering if there's any filling Primal breakfasts? Now I usually have yoghurt with some almonds for breakfast, but it hardly fills me up 'till 11. (And for some reason I always have this: "OMG I must eat now or I'll DIE!!" feeling, even though I'm not shaky and my stomach doesn't rumble at all.. it's just a feeling.) I could go without food 'till 1 when I ate eggs in the morning (usually 2-3 eggs).. but when I did that Stepdad insisted that I stop or at least eat bread with it. Ugh.

    I suppose I can just think f*ck it and eat whatever I want to eat, but I'd like to be able to live with my Mom and Stepdad without daily fights and arguements until my education is finished... which is 3 more years. D:

    Anyone have any ideas? (I gobbled up raw eggs for a few days by the way... they made a mess and weren't really that tasty.)
    "Bread-Bread-Dinner
    It ain't makin' me any thinner
    I eat a sandwich for break-fast
    And then I have a sugar blast!
    I eat toasted bread for lunch
    And enjoy my mid-day crunch!
    At dinner I eat pasta
    And end my day with a sugar disasta!"

      Leftovers? You could just microwave them.

      A smoothie? Since you don't seem to mind your egg raw you could throw one in there and it would be more tasty.

      Cook the eggs ahead and eat a banana with them instead of the bread if that would go down with the stepdad.

        Yeah... My Mom doesn't cook enough meat for that: all the pieces are gone once we're done eating. But if there's any vegetables left that's actually a good idea! (Can't believe I haven't thought of that.) I'll pass the boiled-to-mush potatoes, though.

        Hmm.. I'll have to see what Stepdad says about that (no, I'm not going to ask him, I'll just do it and see how long it takes before he notices it. )

        Unfortunately we don't have a blender, food processor or stick-blender or anything like that. 's gonna be the first thing I buy for my own place.

        How do you mean, cook the eggs ahead? Boil them? Or do you mean cooking them the night before (like scrambled or an omelete or just plain cooked) and microwave them the day after?

        A piece of fruit would be a good idea, even if I just add it to my yoghurt. Thansk!

          Boiled-to-mush potatoes make great hash browns! Stir a beaten egg into them and fry in some butter. Of course that is cooking too but you could do it the night before if you like.

          You could probably do a smoothie in a shaker, you can get some that have a wheel type thing and a high lid for whipping cream or mayonnaise. It would probably make short work of a banana though I haven't tried it.

          Yes, I was envisaging boiled eggs because I don't much like the idea of reheated omelette but a vege quiche might be ok either cold or warmed up.

          Cheese is another food to grab and go. Goes well with fruit too.

          Cottage cheese, fruit and some nuts is another good combo, especially with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

              Full fat yoghurt if you can stomach dairy.
              Smoothies/shakes (e.g. banana + protein powder + cream)
              Cook food the night before

                Oh, so that's what hash browns is!! I was wondering about it because I see it on the forum ocassionaly.

                I'll have to find out where I can get a shaker then. (Does it take up a lot of space? Because that's the reason why I can't get a blender: too small kitchen.)

                Unfortunately my stomach doesn't handle cottage cheese. But I can throw fruit and nuts into some greek yoghurt.

                AMonkey and Damiana:

                I have both greek yoghurt and full fat yoghurt. It's just that when I eat them I feel like I should eat, all the time, even though I'm not shaky and my stomach isn't rumbling. It's weird.

                  Your stepdad needs to stop telling you what to do. You need to learn to cook or is he expecting you to eat at home for the rest of your life?
                  I make breakfast and lunch the day before in the afternoon just because I have time than. Ask your stepdad or mom to help you with it.

                  For non-cooked ideas
                  - salad, buy those small packages of mized lettuce and add what ever you like (cucumber, apple, carrots, canned fish, nuts, etc), It will fill you up.
                  - Fruit mix
                  - Nuts
                  - fruit and nuts into the yoghurt.

                  A colleague of mine had the idea to make primal granola: mixed nuts, flax seed all into the blender to eat through the yoghurt. I however made bars of it but adding molten coconut oil and shredded coconut (could have added chocolate to it) and mae a small layer in a baking tray. In the friezer for a while and cut it in bars...(no cooking involved)
                  My story, My thought....

                  It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

                    No, he's expecting me to eat those microwavable/steam meal packages. Or sandwiches for dinner, that's what he did when he was a bachelor.

                    ... When I wanted to eat a sweet potatoe for breakfast (I was going to Dad's the day after and afraid it would go bad if I waited for two days) they freaked out, because that's not "normal". I ate it anyway, though, but Mom didn't say anything to me that morning. :/ (Yes, as soon as I have my diploma and get a full-time job, I'm out. )

                    I was already considering filling a big plastic container with lots of lettuce and then adding nuts and leftover meat (if there ever is any) on the day I would take it to work/eat it for breakfast. I think I should do that and just tell Stepdad that I like it & that salad can't be bad for me.

                    Maybe I should just gather enough courage to tell them: "I'm 18, it's ridiculous that you still decide what I eat. Bottom line is that I like this food/to eat this way and that should be enough reason to let me eat it!"

                    Damn, I have to get a blender.

                      Try one of those baked egg, vegi an bacon casseroles. You can bake a large one and heat up a portion or two each morning in the microwave.

                      Hard boiled eggs. Precook your bacon.
                      Lots of options, but you need to plan ahead.
                      Good luck with your planning and family.

                        Hard cheese and apple is very satiating and tasty together.

                        Also hard boiled eggs, cooked in advance. And bananas.

                        But yes, also get a bit firmer with them (politely). You are an adult.

                            I cook in advance. Make a bunch of meat and freeze it cooked. Take a few pieces out for the week and let it thaw in the fridge. Can eat it cold and cut up or warmed up. Can microwave a nice sweet potato or vegetables to go with. I'm having breakfast right now: cut up chicken breast, a sweet potato, sriracha sauce and mustard. Yesterday I had cut up chicken with an avocado and steamed cauliflower.

                            You can make eggs in advance if you are an eggs for breakfast person. You know how they have frozen breakfast burritos and frozen sausage, egg and cheese sandwiches? That means you can freeze bacon and eggs. And hashbrowns.

                            Also, there are things in cans you can eat, too.

                              Hi huntress, can you cook the day before, and eat it cold for breakfast?

                              - There's this cold Japanese omelet... the recipe calls for sugar and oil, but I don't use that. I use butter, and chili paste. Closet Cooking: Tamagoyaki (Japanese Rolled Omelet) and a video おいしいたまごやきの作り方 - YouTube

                              - You can make a big batch of meatballs, then eat them cold in the morning.

                              You can also boil the cold pre-cooked meatballs in chicken/beef broth in the morning. I like it because the pan won't burn or smoke, so your step-dad won't be upset! It looks as if you're making hot water or milk for a cup of tea :-)
                              I do it like this: Boil 1 or 2 cups of broth in a pot. Once it's boiling, 1) turn off the gas, 2) add the meatballs, 3) cover the pot. Wait 3 to 5 minutes. You can also reheat leftover shredded chicken or beef like this. You can even add some carrot and onion strips at the same time as the meatballs/meat.

                              You can also do that with eggs, just crack as many as you want in the boiling broth, turn off the gas, cover the pot.

                              - I slice chorizo (spicy pork sausage) and fry it in lard, then keep them in the fridge and eat it cold.


                              - Cold leftover pancakes: I make them with 1 banana, 1 egg, half a tablespoon of butter or coconut oil, a squeeze of lemon juice (optional; I like lemon), 2 tablespoons tapioca starch. I make them small, about 10 cm. Increase the recipe if you want more. You can probably use almond butter instead of tapioca starch.
