    Your favorite quick and simple meal?

    Shop Now
    I love to cook but am lazy too. I often find myself going back to the same quick grab-and-nuke meal, know what I mean?

    All these ingredients are from Trader Joe's (sorry if you don't have one nearby!..so sad); my TJ's is at the end of my street, within walking distance.

    VIKING'S QUICK GRAB CHICKEN MEAL:
    • 3-4 ounces frozen chicken breast pieces (TJ's "Just Grilled Chicken Strips")*
    • About 1/4 to 1/3 cup TJ's "Mild Salsa" (refrigerated kind)
    • Big squirt of TJ's "Fresh & Spicy" guacamole.


    I put chicken pieces on a paper plate, nuke it for about 1:20 on high, slather cold salsa atop the hot chicken, and squirt a blob of guac on the side.

    This is very low carb (but I sometimes eat some apple or whatever afterwords or before), adequate protein, and high fat....PERFECT PB, really tasty, and REALLY satisfying!! Total prep and cleanup time about 2.5 minutes. After eating this I feel great. And the simplicity is helping me lose 5-7 pounds per week.


    *the Just Grilled Chicken Strips have 1 gm of unwanted carbs (potato starch) in a 3 ounce serving, but not serious enough for me to worry.

    Steak, topped with sour cream and shallots (or you may call them spring onion?)

    Lamb cutlets and steamed veg (current favourite brocolli, cauliflower and asparagus semi-mashed with sour cream)

    chicken and bacon roasted, served with avocado

    all take 20 mins

    BAS or scrambled eggs are my usual go-to meals, whether i'm in a hurry or not. as long as i've got some meat already cooked up, neither one takes more than a few minutes to prepare.

    Great-quality sausages slowly sauteed with leeks in a ton of butter. Squeeze a lemon on top. Done.

    Omelets are quick, and a good way to use up various leftover meats and veggies.

    I also make burgers a lot - the variations in seasonings and toppings are nearly endless so it's a little different each time. Sometimes I serve them on a salad, sometimes with lettuce leaves to hold them, sometimes the burgers are the "bun" and I put the rest of the stuff in between.

    I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.

    Sliced bacon cooked with ground beef.
    - If it was cute and cuddly at some point, eat it. Ignore everything else. -

    - Food is first, and foremost, nothing more than fuel. -

    Fry a pound of extra lean ground beef, 1/2 to 1 cup tomato sauce. Spice to taste (lea and perrins, soya, salt, pepper, garlic, etc).
