I've been living off the 'meal deal' at the local grocery store. I usually get a smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwich, 500ml of coconut water and a little pot of melon and grapes or mango for £3.25. What other foods should I add to my diet? I am worried I am not getting enough nutritions.
The Co-operative. I was doubtful at first but I got sick of the other sandwiches quickly and this was surprisingly good. Nice ratio of smoked salmon to cream cheese and they use whole wheat or something so its healthy.
I am busy 14 hours a day and only go home to sleep and shower. Don't worry, I can cook. I just don't have the time or energy to at this point in my life. Also the coconut water is £2.50 on its own and I love that shit so I consider it a bargain. I am satisfied with the quality of the food I am currently getting.
Even so meal "deals" are a bloody rip off.
If you are honestly too lazy to cook you can still just buy pre prepared meals which'll be better for you and cheaper.
Don't know about Co Op but where I shop you tend to get a week's worth of a particular fruit/veg for between 50p-£1 depending on what you get. If you're lazy just get fruit and veg you can eat raw, staying away from stuff like potatoes for obvious reasons.
For breakfast and lunch try to just find something simple and filling, I personally just go for two hardboiled eggs in the morning and then some kind of carbs at lunch.
Even ready meals are only about ~£2 a pop and they're rather filling.
If you have an Aldi/Lidl locally I'd recommend them. Key thing is to buy stuff in advance where possible, looked online and while I don't know how much coconut water you get, but you seem to be able to get a litre for about 2.50 and I'm pretty sure that meal deals come with 500ml at most.
Salads may help then my friend, try something simple like a can of chickpeas, tomato and spinach with a dressing of choice. It only takes a minute to prepare. The beans will keep you full while the veggies are nutritious.
Or how about just putting spinach in your sandwiches lol
Look up the individual nutritional info for every ingredient in your sandwiches + fruit. If you can tell that most nutrients are accounted for then good job.
This sounds totally fine. If youre really concerned try cycling through the other sandwiches/pastas etc but you wont die of malnutrition, Co-op is sound for sandwiches.
Do you have this for every meal. Doesn't that shit get boring?
Usually 1-2 times a day. It is boring but it doesn't bother me too much because I'm depressed and apathetic.
The tuna based ones make my breath smelly so they're out, and the pasta ones get old really quickly.
You need vegetables.
Get a cucumber, wash it, slice it into pieces and dip it into thousand island dressing.
You can get frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. Warm them up on the stove with water.
