needs some help, y'all. We are trying to come up with some good grocery shopping habits for him - instead of processed, premade food, he's looking for things that can be cooked quickly and easily.
My first thoughts:
1.Chicken breasts and pork chops - cheap, and can simply be slapped in a pan with a little oil, salt and pepper.
2.Angelhair pasta - cooks in a very short time.
3.Any veggie he likes raw - this way, he doens't even have to cook it; he can just plop some down in a plate.
4. Prepackaged salads - just add dressing and maybe some sliced chicken and you're done.
My biggest thought is that spices make a difference. Good olive oil, kosher salt, oregano, curry powder - all these things can jazz up a dish very, very easily and quickly. A plain chicken breasts night after night can get very dull.
What does the hive mind have to say? The key is quick and non-intimidating. There's an illusion that cooking has to be complicated. But if you just start very simply, it'll be easier to maintain.
