I can't believe nobody has said this but Tasty Bite has a bunch of different Indian/Thai pouches that are pretty low calorie and very filling. The lentils one is my go-to but they are all pretty good of the ones I've had. I usually get a big pack at Costco. Also if you want to make it a full meal you can add rice.
Indispensable when really you could just say eat fish and chicken and you're gucci. Casein protein (milks, yogurts) are great for keeping yourself protein saturated between major meal breaks (sleeping). Chicken and fish is good for meals. After hitting your protein goal (e.g., .8g/lb which is more than enough) hit your calorie goal with the addition of other macros if you'd like (fat/carbs) and you're good to go.
Assuming you're in good shape and your blood pressure is controlled (most athletes), things like salt are pretty irrelevant. Which is good, since easy forms of chicken (e.g., canned) tend to be high in salt. Unless you're intaking an absurd amount of salt you'll just piss it out with a reasonable water intake anyways. This makes for easy meal preparation since you can allocate canned chicken, combine with rice and flavor enhancer (e.g., sriracha) to do a really good job of controlling your diet.
Edit: Yes, canned chicken is a real thing in the good ole US of A. To me it's better (though more expensive) than cooking a few pounds of chicken every Sunday for the week, but that's a cheaper, equivalent method.

I was completely underwhelmed. Now if you want an amazing instant noodle you have to get ahold of this shit: https://www.amazon.com/Nissin-Demae-Garlic-Instant-Noodles/dp/B00CORJU5S
It’s fucking DELICIOUS
Buy better ramen. I don't know how people can eat tons of Maruchan or Top Ramen. Get some quality shit on amazon. Its more expensive but you'll hate yourself a bit less. Here's some things to get you started with:
For people who want low carb noodles without having to make your own - http://www.amazon.com/Explore-Asian-Organic-Spaghetti-7-05-Ounce/dp/B004NSG8F6
Same thing happened to me with a whole canned chicken I was saving. I was so freaked out by the mess, I thought it was a poultrygeist.
Hey a fellow vegetarian Indian! I've been on this diet for over 8 months now and it's definitely possible, although not eating eggs will make it a tad harder. Below are some things (sans eggs) that I eat regularly. Note that this is a little heavy on carbs for a strict keto diet since will end up eating between 30-40g of carbs per day. The daily limit to keep you in ketosis varies from person to person. This worked for me. I don't calorie count since it's too much of a hassle for me. So you might want to tailor this plan based on your needs. I've changed parts of this diet since I started working at a new place where I can get cafeteria food.
Breakfast: Bullet proof coffee. It's simple, fast, keeps you satiated and is heavy on fat. After having this, the rest of your meals only need to be low carb, with good amounts of protien and fat.
Other meal ideas:
Hope this plan gives you a starting point. Believe me when I say this diet works! You feel much better after cutting out the carbs, especially after being on a carb heavy diet such as a vegetarian Indian diet. Good luck!
I don't know if it's the same brand, but they also make black bean pasta that has a high protein/low carb content annnnnd it's bomb.
Explore Asian Organic Black Bean Spaghetti, 7.05-Ounce (Pack of 6) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004NSG8F6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_ktDHwb8MM4NCB
I've been reading up on curry for the last hour and it's truly a fascinating tale of culinary history. It's so crazy that we have this word, that everyone thinks is a word from India that refers to their food and spice, yet is actually a western word to describe said food and spice. And somehow it spread all over the world. Then we have places like Thailand where their word for curry is one thing and we call it curry, and in neighboring Indonesia they have dishes that are literally called curry/kare.
Thanks, British empire!
BTW I absolutely agree American chili could fall under curry. I guess it depends on how you define curry though. I have a friend who claims to hate Indian food, but loves chili and this stuff: https://www.amazon.com/Tasty-Bite-Indian-Lentils-Microwaveable/dp/B0007R9L4M
She actually calls it chili and I always make it a point to remind her it's Indian food. :D
Eden Organic Black Soy Beans, No Salt Added, 15-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000GZS9Q6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_ZMABCb71P1VDR
You, sir, have a serious lack of Sriracha!
I made keto Louisiana "red beans" and "rice" with sausage! Sorry for the low picture quality. The recipe is a bit involved, but I like my keto meals with some complexity.
-1/2 onion, diced
-1/2 red or green bell pepper, diced
-1 jalapeño pepper, cored, seeded, & minced (optional)
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-1lb cooked smoked sausage links, sliced (I found a brand that has 1 carb per link. You could also use shrimp and/or chicken)
-1 cup chicken broth (or water + bouillon)
-15oz can black soy beans, drained and rinsed (I used these https://www.amazon.com/Eden-Organic-Black-Beans-15-Ounce/dp/B000GZS9Q6 )
-1 bay leaf
-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
-1/2 tsp dried thyme
-1/4 tsp dried sage
-2 tsp dried parsley
-1 tsp Cajun or Creole seasoning (like Tony C's)
-Salt & pepper to taste
-24oz riced cauliflower (I used 2x 12oz bags of the frozen Trader Joe's brand)
-Avocado oil, butter, or lard for sautéing
-Xanthan gum (optional)
Yield: 4 servings @ 8g net carbs each (would only be 6g net carbs if you use a zero-carb meat/protein. You could cut another 1-2 carbs per serving if you leave out the onions & peppers, but it would definitely change the overall taste.)
These have 1g of net carbs per serving, with 3.5 servings per can.
Here's the two mentioned at the bottom of the image:
Nong Shim Ramen
Mama Tom Yum Ramen
I can't speak to the second one, but I pretty much always have the Nong Shim noodles on hand, and I don't even like regular shitty ramen. That stuff is some of the most delicious soup I've ever had, and it easily passes as delicious homemade soup. It's got a nice bite to it and it's extremely filling. The "brick" of noodles is quite a bit larger than the standard ramen package, and there are several different packets of ingredients rather than the usual mystery powder.
Words cannot describe how delicious that Nong Shim stuff is. It has an astronomically high taste-to-difficulty ratio. In fact, I don't think I can think of anything tastier than I could prepare in less time or for less money.
Seriously, I love that stuff.
TIP: don't cook the noodles in the crock pot. Boil the noodles by themselves, drain, and then add them directly to your bowls before adding the soup. This keeps the noodles from getting soggy and is much easier to portion and serve.
Also, please don't use crappy instant noodles for this dish. You already spent so much time and money preparing good ingredients, you can surely afford to spend more than a dollar on noodles. If you can't find any fresh or frozen ramen like Sun Noodle or quality dry ramen like Hakubaku, get Nongshim brand instant noodles. They're WAY better than Top Ramen/Maruchan.
Of course, you don't have to use ramen noodles at all. This recipe isn't Japanese, so why not use lo mein or rice noodles or Chinese flat egg noodles or buckwheat noodles or bean threads. If you can't find any of those, you can always substitute spaghetti or linguine. Literally anything would be tons better than cheap instant noodles.
I don't think it is a good price, shipping appears to be $10 flat. less than two years ago I was paying $2.50 shipped per meal, and that included the heater, seasonings, wipe, etc. Note however they were NOT vetted to have future inspection dates like these. Mine just had manufacture dates, and they were 2+ years old by the time I got them. I eventually ate them all though, and they were fine.
if you buy two cases here, it works out to about $5.83 per meal. too rich for my blood. they are very convenient, but for the price they are asking, you can buy the same thing on amazon for the same price ($60 + $15 shipping vs $65 + $10 shipping): https://www.amazon.com/MRE-MEALS-MILITARY-FACTORY-SEALED/dp/B00JVTPVYQ
I can wait until I have a need to make my purchase.
EDIT - $62 shipped if you have prime: https://www.amazon.com/Meals-Ready-Genuine-Military-Surplus/dp/B005I5ML36/

you are doing it wrong. that is soup.. it is supposed to be eaten with water... ;)
instead what you will love is this bad boy:
those are INTENDED to be server without water... and taste like motherfucking rainbows on steroids. if you want to go commando then throw the noodles in a pan and add an raw egg to stri fry it before seasoning.
in anycase these come in jumbo sizes as well and are available in most asian supermarkets...
those are from indonesian origin
prepare your world to be rocked!!
Ooh, so the bowl kind actually comes with the toppings on the label? I've been buying the packets, which have soup base and some kimchi (I think?) flakes.
My current fave is this mi goreng There's like 5 separate sauce packets, and I love opening and combining all of them
Welcome to America, where you can buy a canned whole chicken if your heart so desires.
Holy shit! According to this, black bean noodles have 25g of protein and 12g of fiber per serving.
I guess I'll be trying these in the near future.
Whole foods - beans/lentils (black beans, pinto beans, garbanzo beans/chickpeas), nuts/seeds (almonds, peanuts, walnuts, hemp/flax/chia/sunflower seeds), grains (buckwheat/wheat/quinoa/oats), and green vegetables.
Processed foods - tofu, tempeh, seitan, bean pastas, protein powders
here's an infographic http://i.imgur.com/KexRyhQ.jpg
It's available by the case on Amazon.
Mi Goreng, Its not Japanese but its my favorite instant noodles.

As a keto dieter, maybe I can help out. None of it is really "convenient" food, you have to make pretty much all of it, but it help to kick the cravings.
Let me know what else you're missing and I can see if I can find it. I've been low carb/keto for 3 years now, so I've tried a lot of the premade mixes you can find out there too.
Hey, I train 6-7 days a week, too. You should have no problem getting 60-70g protein a day just from whole foods, not even taking into account a protein shake. Though that also depends on your overall calorie intake, which you didn't mention. Just putting something simple together, 95g hemp seeds, 430g lentils, and 290g buckwheat is 2000 calories, 330g carbs, 43g fat, and 96g protein. There is plenty of room to play around there to swap out foods and stuff and still hit your protein macros.
ntotally tastes like ass. Funny enough, mixed berry is the only flavor I think is half decent. Taste-wise, my favorite is Sunwarrior. If you can afford Vega, you should be able to afford Sunwarrior. I like the chocolate flavor. Though my favorite is TrueNutrition's hemp/rice/pea blend. Tastes better than Vega, not as good as Sunwarrior, but it's much cheaper than either and tastes good enough for me. Favorite flavors are chocolate fudge brownie and mocha.
I found this on the USA Amazon - I'm from the UK so I can't order it sadly :( http://www.amazon.com/Cans-full-Yoders-Canned-Bacon/dp/B0039LDMV6/ref=pd_sim_gro_3/191-7513993-0643524?ie=UTF8&amp;refRID=1K0YP7TESW8Z09D23GG6 Yeuch!
36 shells for $16.99
If you don't use the packet anyways, you should look into various types of noodles. You might enjoy egg noodles or udon or somen. There's fresh ramen noodles as well, they're probably healthier for you. Something like this https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B007WQCENQ/

Amazon will deliver it to you if you want?
Breakfast: instant coffee and poptarts, once I read the calorie count (200 kcal per pastry, so 400 kcal per pack) I knew that they were the breakfast for me and that we shouldn't be feeding these to kids.
Lunch - meat sticks and cheese, various variations sometimes a roll of summer sausage, blocks of cheese, I quit trying to eat tortillas due to my moustache not cooperating.
Dinner - Instant refried beans and minute rice, I seriously ate this almost every night. The beans come in a foil pouch so I would pour half into a ziplock for another night, boil the water with the rice in it, pour/spoon it into the pouch. Same the pouch for the next night, and these pouches are good for packing out used TP. For variety add taco bell sauce packets, bits of cheese, individual spam packets. Minute rice can be found anywhere. These are my favorite beans, but the price looks like it is going up, they can also be found at Safeway. A couple of stores had another brand of instant refried beans that worked OK too.
Snacks - I would pack pouches of dill pickle sunflower seeds, both for the salt and to break up monotony. I ate alot of granola bars, usually when taking a break and felt like I was running out of steam. I found the cheaper granola bars were my favorite, but when I found cliff bars for $1/bar I would usually buy them even though I was getting tired of them (did you know some of them have caffeine in them!).
Edit: Yellowfin tuna in oil pouches rule! Either I would make extra rice at night to eat for lunch the next day with the tuna or mix it in with the beans and rice. Good fat/calories and the oil doesn't freeze when you are in the mountains like the tuna in water does.
I tried to listen to that airplane/ocean album, but I never got into it. Everyone kept short-stroking it like it's the best thing since single serving spam packets. Am I missing something?
P.S. Those spam things are depressingly real.
Thank you! Another option: If you go to www.camelcamelcamel.com, you can set up an Amazon alert to email you know when this one...
Goes on sale (though right now it's $2.50/can on Prime, which is good). Last October, they messed something up and it went to $2.79 for 12 cans by mistake. Got 2 cases for around $6 shipped.
I love camelcamelcamel. :)
Edit: Sorry OP - didn't mean to hijack! :) Can't wait to try those hemp hearts too!
Alright! I'm going to list a bunch of different types, so bear with me here--
If you're looking for a more classic, almost like Top Ramen kind of tastes, I recommend these: Sapporo Ichiban
They're basically just tastier Top Ramen, in my opinon. If you want to fancy it up a bit and go a little deeper into "classic" ramen tastes, then go with this: Nissin Black Garlic Oil Tonkotsu
Speaking of Tonkotsu, do you like a richer Tonkotsu flavor? Then this is what you'll want to try! Myojo Charumera Ramen Tokotsu Shoyu
A bit too high calorie? Want something lighter, non-fried, but still has some delicious Tonkotosu flavor and a firmer chew? Then try Nissin Raoh!
It also comes in the Soy Sauce and Miso flavors, or even Shio if you're looking for that!
Japanese not your thing? Want to try some Korean Ramyun? Neoguri Spicy Seafood might be your thing!
But like some szechuan spice with some authentic ma la flavor that numbs your mouth? Why not try our JML Instant Noodle Artificial Spicy Hot Beef Flavor?
P.S. The "artifical" is a bad translation of the ma la flavor
What about some southeast asian flavors? Nothing like Mama Tom Yum flavor to brighten up your day! These are smaller packet, just something to keep in mind. They also make Shrimp creamy Tom Yum and Artifical Pa-Lo Duck Flavor if you're into that!
Speaking of which, let's get some Laksa and Penang in here! MyKuali Penang White Curry is a very delicious, but kind of shrimp funky kind of flavor, but it's definitely worth a try! The entire MyKuali line is very good!
What about something a bit more on the more luxurious side, but also has that same fermented shrimp funk? Why not Prima Taste Laksa La Mian with coconut broth?
And if we want to go into the more expensive, more authentic ramen taste, there's Ichiran instant ramen, which is expensive, but pretty close to an actual authentic bowl of Ichiran Tonkotsu Ramen!
I hope this helped, and let me know if there's anything else you'd like to try, and I can give recommendations! I also recommend going to a local asian supermarket and browsing their instant ramen section-- Amazon only carries the more popular ones, and there are truly some delicious hidden gems that you can only get in asian grocery stores!
I haven't clicked on the link either, but here's my thoughts:
Get a couple cases of MREs, a couple flats of bottled water. Use them on roadtrips, day hikes, etc, get a replacement case/flat when the first runs out. Maybe look into a water purifier and camping stove that can use multiple types of fuel such as MSR International.
A 5 gallon can of gasoline, or maybe a couple of them if you have need, be sure to add a stabilizer for long term storage. Use it for your lawn mower/small jobs so that it eventually gets used up and replaced.
Keep a can with a wad of 20s stashed somewhere out of the way, maybe dip into it time to time when you'd rather save a trip to an ATM and replenish it when you've had a good week.
Stock your medicine cabinet with basic first aid stuff: various sizes of band-aids, ace bandage/splint, space blanket, aspirin, ibuprofen, claritin, small scissors, water purification tablets. If you have medical needs, not sure if you'll be able to double up on your prescription. But also get a 1st aid kit, double up on your 1st aid supplies, and keep a portable version either in your car/truck glove box, or somewhere where you spend most of your time when not at home (office/work).
Because who wouldn't want a whole fucking chicken in a can.
That sounds awful. Almost as bad as a whole chicken in a can.
I don't remember how I came across it, but you can buy Canned Pork Brains on amazon. Little 5 oz. can, but look at the nutrition information - over a thousand percent of your daily value of cholesterol!
6 quid on amazon.
You can buy the official Kraft Cheese here:Link
or if your addiction becomes too expensive putting it on everything... I have started to purchase these and it isn't too much different. Link (These packets are actually to make a cheese sauce, but regardless, I sprinkle it as you would with the Kraft brand.)
If you really want that Tom Yum flavor grab these. Other than "wet" yours doesn't resemble Tom Yum at all.
The chicken of the sea 2.5 oz packaged salmon is 11.30 or so for 12 packages. It gets even cheaper if you choose to subscribe to deliveries of it. It's certainly cheaper than buying individual packages at the store for me. Sorry I can't send a link easily on mobile.
Here you go: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003RWVFEI/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1407956901&amp;sr=8-1&amp;pi=SY200_QL40
Military MREs could suffice for your needs. Just be careful, they pack some serious calories per pack.
Dude look what I found because of you
Honestly, instant ramen. Make this ramen broth without taking out the chicken at the end. Divide it into freezer containers that are about 24oz each and freeze. Purchase these ramen noodles (there's a lot...each bundle makes 2 bowls of ramen. 2 bowls per bundle, 3 bundles per pack, 8 packs in a box...48 bowls of noodles).
When you want fresh homemade ramen, take out one of your frozen broth containers and heat, cook the noodles, make some soft boiled eggs, maybe blanch some bitter greens (kale, bok choi), add some other protein. If you have all the ingredients available (and broth frozen), the process takes ~20 minutes from "oh I'm hungry" to "I'm eating homemade ramen."
Here you are.
MCD pancake butter or two.
Fresh greenbeans/sugar snap peas (lots of grocery stores have them in loose bulk. Enough for X meals)
Sriracha packet (panda Express has them. Just ask do t have to buy anything)
Can do this as a soup or drained noodles. Add water , boil with sliced carrots and beans/peas. Few mins depending on your taste for softness. Add noodles cook the 3 min for them.
Optional: drain water (keep for soup)
Add ramen flavor packet and butter. Mix up and eat. (Sriracha as needed)
Garlic powder (very little) is also good but not required. Can make your own seasoning as well and ditch the ramen seasoning. I'd say play around at home either way. Lots of veggie options out there that are light and will keep a day or two.
Also, there are lots of ramens out there besides the basic ones at normal grocery stores. My city has a pretty big vietnamese community and their grocery stores have some pretty fancy ones. I'll find and link some as they are on amazon as well. These have 3, 4, 5 packets of seasonings/oils/spices and are pretty dang good (I tend to add veggies to most)
Dont like/want noodles? Rice works too. I'm sure there are other options as well. Cant think of any at the moment.
Oh yeah. Dried mushrooms. The asian market or Amazon should have those too. Great to add. Add towards end. Don't need too much hydration.
https://www.amazon.com/Mama-Tom-Yum-Flavour-Noodles/dp/B000QFOXTS/ this ones spicy!
Sriracha is cock sauce. In all honestly it's actually fucking delicious cock sauce.
A miniature sewing kit. When you’re running missions outside, clothes tend to get ripped, and with only limited numbers, life can get rough. A sewing kit helps.
Spirarcha chili sauce. If your soldier likes spicy foods, send them this. It’s spicy, it has flavor, and it will last them a few months.
Socks and underwear. Send them hiking socks and replacement pairs of underwear. Clothes tend to get gross and if they don’t have laundry, sometimes it is for the best to toss out old underclothes and wear new ones.
Trail mix of various types.
Great ideas for one-time gifts. These range from relatively cheap, to pricy and are a great surprise to a soldier stationed anywhere. I’ve included links to the products to give you an idea of what they look like, though don’t take those links as the only/cheapest place to find them:
Adjustable two-point sling. On base they have to carry around a weapon everywhere, and on mission they’ll be going some serious distance with it in their hands. If they are still using an Army-issue plain sling life is going to get a bit annoying. An adjustable two-point sling makes things more convenient and lets them ready a weapon to fire without an awkward movement on a mission. Ignore this if they are using a machine-gun, because those use heavy duty slings. Various companies make these, I prefer the VTAC, but they are all similar in make.
Surefire Earplugs. On mission, soldiers are supposed to wear earplugs, but many don’t because its uncomfortable and often all they are issued are cheap low qualifty plugs. Surefire earplugs conform to the shape of the ear and they are designed to allow someone to still be able to hear conversation level noise while protecting from high level noise. These are great.
Head-Loc helmet straps. One of the greatest pains is a helmet that won’t stay secure. The Head-Loc straps stay tighter and make the helmet so comfortable that you forget you’re wearing it.
PMAGs. Magpul plastic magazines, or PMAGs are high quality replacements for metal GI magazines. Army issued metal magazines are often used for years past the date that they should be retired and they are prone to feeding issues (I won’t get into the details) and PMAGs fix many of those issues and give a soldier more confidence in their equipment. A combat load is 7 magazines, so don’t feel the need to buy more than that, and even one or two PMAGs is greatly appreciated. Ignore if they are using a machinegun.
Head-lamp. Walking around an outpost at night is tricky and Afghanistan can get dark, a head-lamp is a great help to keep your soldier from stubbing their toe or walking into barbed wire. Get only with some kind of red or blue light filter.
Mechanix gloves. Soldiers need to wear gloves on mission and they tend to get torn up, a replacement pair of mechanixs gloves is a good choice.
Percentages are more useful for people on medical keto, say epileptics. Here, it is more typical to track in grams.
People on here tend to have the most success keeping to 20 g net carbs per day which is carbs minus fiber (in US). Outside US the label typically already reflects the math, is my understanding.
So, you can eat anything that fits into your macros. The calculator in the sidebar is a good one, set carbs to 20 g and activity to sedentary, most folks do a 20% deficit.
If you want to eat pinto beans, the rest of your day has to be pretty carb free. Black coffee and a steak for your other meal would fit nicely. ;)
As an alternative, Black Soybeans (have only seen them canned) are very low in net carbs and are great in burritos, tacos, etc.
Protip: you can make keto Tex-Mex.
Crispy taco shells
At 20 carbs or less a day, I’m down 74 lbs since the end of spring, and I don’t even exercise or really even try to run a calorie deficit. You can literally just get trays of Whataburger patties with cheese, fried eggs, and all that jazz.
Check out /r/ketorecipes and /r/keto for extra. There’s a recipe for just about every form of Mexican food. (Bonus tip: baby corn has no carbs, and fiber doesn’t count, so you can get the HEB low-carb tortillas if you’re feeling lazy.)
Edit: ps - black soybeans have 1 net carb and can be mashed and refried like pintos. Watch out for added carbs in shredded cheese and bacon, but both are A-OK otherwise.
If you want legumes with almost no carbs, try these.
I know, right? The only way I found out about them was through a recipe book. They are so amazing and I really missed beans. They sell them at places like Whole Foods, but I get mine online from Amazon for cheaper.
I do cilantro and sliced green (spring) onion. I also have bean spouts to add at the end. Plus a soft boiled egg is always amazing.
Also tom yum ramen is also easily the best imo and cheap as well.
The brand appears to be Celebrity: http://www.canned-bacon.com/
For those long nights during busy season.
To help smooth things out after busy season is over.
I buy these bean-only noodles: https://www.amazon.com/Explore-Asia-Organic-Spaghetti-7-05-Ounce/dp/B0078DU1CY
Not necessarily low calorie, but very high fiber and protein. They taste good, better than any other pasta replacement in my opinion.
Don't forget this.
Spices and condiments should always get a priority. Try to add something to your inventory each month, so you can have variety even when it's the end of the month and you are down to half a case of ramen and some rice.
So, for that naked pasta - 2 or 3 tbs of margarine or extra-virgin olive oil, a small clove of garlic, pressed, a drizzle of balsamic reduction ~an eighth of a teaspoon, be scant with it - microwave in a container with a cover until just hot, blend by shaking. Drizzle over your veggies and pasta. No need to use it all at once - it will keep nicely.
Ok, now I'm hungry. Which reminds me - broke college students should probably get into lacto-fermentation. Saurkraut, kimchee, etc all add tremendous nutrition and flavor at very low cost. /r/fermentation has you covered. The big win here is that you can scoop up all the marked-down produce and ferment it. It's also a thing that complements /r/freeganism. Saurkraut is particularly easy and I promise you - if you think it's kinda sour and yet bland, it doesn't have to be. And it's cheap like borcht.
Just about any decient grocery store should carry sriracha. It should be right next to the soy sauce and other oriental foods. If not, here ya go.
Last week I was discussing the idea of having a sushi pizza. I kicked around the idea a little bit and decided I would do a Shaggy Dog inspired pizza. Normal pizza crust with dragon sauce (Kewpie and Rooster sauce) and cream cheese base. I did a very thin coating of sushi rice in the sauce (I'd leave this out next time) and then some green onions and shrimp. I did just enough Mozzarrella cheese to make everything gel together (about 1/3 of the amount I'd normally use). After it came out of the oven, I added slices of avacado, cucmbers and sprinkled with shredded fake crab. I found it tasted best if you let it sit for about 10 minutes.
i stole this item from a previous gifted post
i'm not ashamed
The sauces are pretty easy to find, any Asian grocery will have them or any grocery store with a decent Asian section.
Sweet chili sauce
Thai peanut sauce For some reason Amazon only has this in a 12 pack. I'm actually OK with that. ;^)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0002PSOJW sriracha is a hot sauce. Sometimes referred to as cocksauce due to the rooster on the bottle.
OK so this one is a little more complicated. I use the same chicken as the curry.
It's hard to see, but I like to put it on a bed of brown rice and lentils (I use half a package per tray). I also usually eat it with some laughing cow cheese.
As for amounts, I believe it was 1200g of chicken, 350g of baby bellas, 142g of onions, 3 tsp of butter.
~490 calories per serving with 54g of protein
The Tasty Bites meals are good, you can reheat them on a stove without adding water. My favorite is the Madras Lentils.
I think you could make cheap snack bars with things like oats, (almond) milk, pretzels, seeds (pumpkin, chia, sunflower), protein mix, chocolate, maple syrup (or honey), maybe something like cranberries. Basically mix that in a bowl and then spread it out on a pan and bake it.
also madras lentils are really tastey, though amazon is not where to buy them for cheap. just basically rice and beans that are microwavable are good choices.
personally I really like cereal (like cereals that are grains and nuts), and bananas go well with cereal.
hmm, thats all i got. But I second werewolfgirl34's like to vegan sandwiches. they all look good honestly.
Black soy beans can be used in place of black beans anywhere you like. They are the only keto-friendly bean that I know of. (An equivalent amount of black beans would have 24g net carbs.) Put them in some keto-friendly chili with beefy crumble to up the protein, eat them with tofu/eggs in a scramble, make a Mexican-inspired bean dip out of them and eat with veggies or cheese chips... Tons of options for them! :)
I always got this brand, and I found it at health food stores as well as big chain grocery stores that have a decent natural foods selection.
It's this: https://www.amazon.com/Eden-Organic-Black-Beans-15-Ounce/dp/B000GZS9Q6?th=1
Found it on a shelf in the organic section of my local supermarket.
I buy them from Amazon, but they aren't prime eligible and you have to buy a whole dozen at once. I did it, though, because I use them in a lot of recipes: http://www.amazon.com/Eden-Organic-Black-Beans-15-Ounce/dp/B000GZS9Q6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1381764143&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=black+soybeans+eden
Put olive oil, onion, and chicken into large pan on the stove. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside. Add garlic and cook for another minute or so. Add every other ingredient and bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and let cook uncovered for 20 minutes or so.
You can increase the amount of cheese in the recipe to help thicken the sauce a little. You can also top with more cheese or sour cream after serving.
I didn't have any jalapeno or other peppers on hand but you can definitely add them in for extra heat. Speaking of heat, this chili does have a bit of a kick to it so if you're sensitive to spice just leave out or reduce the amount of Cayenne Pepper.
Finally, you could serve with pork rinds or something if you wish to have a crunch.
Makes about 11 cups of food, which I estimate to be about 6 servings (I took about 1 cup out to eat. Ended up going back for seconds)
I have a present for you.
Is good man.
Down thru the centuries, college students have spent their measly pennies on Top Ramen. And thus it is written.
[But I more highly recommend the MaMa ramen, shrimp flavor. Toss in a some chopped up leftover chicken breast and you're stylin'! $22 for 30 bags here: https://www.amazon.com/Mama-Tom-Yum-Flavour-Noodles/dp/B000QFOXTS/ref=pd_sim_325_1?_encoding=UTF8&amp;psc=1&amp;refRID=40AT8P1W71HPEYP5NEC8 ]
Three meals a day. I'd do it in February so 28 days... 28 * 3 = 84 meals. Call it 90 for contingency.
6 order of this costs me $81. I have prime so free shipping.
Plus the cost of butter and milk.
Can I add hot dogs or turkey to the mix? Can I grill it in a grilled mac and cheese sandwich?
Salmon pouches are one of the most efficient and healthiest food items you can carry on a hike.
No need for refrigeration. No extra water weight like canned fish has. And no extra weight from the metal can itself.
I recommend Salmon and Tuna pouches. They don't require refrigeration and have a long shelf life. Keep those and some mayo packets in your desk and you will always have something to eat.
Dude, you need seitan in your life (75g protein/100g). Also, if you eat pasta, substitute for bean pasta that has around 20-25g protein/100g, and white rice for quinoa (white rice: ~3g protein/100g; quinoa: 14g/100g)
Add green peas (9g protein/100g, ~81kcal) or edamame (fresh soy beans, ~28g protein/100g, ~127kcal) to every meal. So much gains... :)
I really like this black bean pasta
Amazon link, can also get at Costco.
I think I found the pasta because I was curious. I wonder how it tastes?
Here are the amazon links: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004NSG8F6/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_GDTQwbMKKPH19 and https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TCUM7X2/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_PHTQwbRBZAW2N. Looks like the black bean one is less here
Look for large escargot shells, they're on amazon. I also found bags of them at an Italian grocery store.
You can absolutely use any sort of chicken and chop it up with a food processor or something but I imagine trying to fork a full chicken breast into shredded meat would take a lot of effort and time.
Canned chicken is just a bit easier and cheaper for this dish.
I'd switch to buying the Kirkland canned chunk chicken breast instead of tuna. 210 calories per can, mix with mayo and it's just as good as tuna, plus you don't have to worry about mercury, which can be an issue if you eat a lot of tuna.
For snacks, I like buying raw almonds in bulk and roasting them in the oven myself. Very Calorie dense, healthy fats, relatively low carbs (not carb free though). Jerky is great, but like you said, really expensive. You could look into making it in bulk in the oven (or buying a dehydrator if you are super committed).
canned pulled pork
canned roast beef
All very lean, very high in protein, zero carbs (I'm not a zero carb guy, but I keep them relatively low compared to protein) and easy to spice up a little and eat.
My new favorite discovery is black bean spaghetti. I saw it at Costco and figured it was worth a shot.
At first, it reminded me of rubber bands. But then I got used to it and realized it's actually pretty good! It's much more filling than regular pasta, and can be used in a lot of different dishes. It's a nice break from spaghetti squash!
Pasta with Protein > Carbs.
It's expensive AF on Amazon, but look at your local grocery stores for this. I found it at mine for relatively cheap. More expensive than regular pasta, but worth it for the macros.
Black bean spaghetti
Hakubaku brand noodles.
Attached images show Tonkotsu broth boiling.
This was a 9-10 hour rolling boil after a blanch and cleaning of the bones.
These are the noodles I've been using....
Chicken in a Can
It's a real thing! Some supermarkets carry them too.
Not even a little bit...pig brains are a food in and of themselves. Spam is mostly pork shoulder.
This ish right here.
I'm in love with these things oh my god.
If you want to switch up your ramen game try these. I've barely eaten anything else for weeks. I think they might actually be addictive. And all of the varieties are good.
I used to do the same thing with indomie mi gorang
So good when your broke and lazy.
this is my fav https://www.amazon.com/Indomie-Mi-Goreng-Instant-Noodle/dp/B00HXIXWKM?th=1
Depends on what you want.
Soup based #2 for me: MARUTAI Hakata Nagahama Tonkotsu anything from MARUTAI is AMAZING
Instant Indomie #1 for me: Mi GorenG almost anything from indomie is really good.
Spice and pure sadistic heat: Samyang Extra Spicy
I hope this helps. :)
Read your post again, i missed the mark. To import food in general from japan i use this site
One of my dad's specialties is the ichiban leftover soup.
Make the soup, add whatever left over cooked meat you have, shredded. Add in bok choi, broccoli, green onions, and an egg or two.
Add in a couple of splashes of Maggi seasoning for extra sodium (lol).
Mi Goreng is one of my favourite instant soups.
That's good, but I've ordered stuff back in the more broke days from Amazon that was better.
Like this: https://www.amazon.com/Indomie-Goreng-Instant-Noodle-Packaging/dp/B00HXIXWKM
Try and find Mi Goreng noodles. This particular brand is fuckin delicious. Link; http://www.amazon.com/Indomie-Mi-Goreng-Instant-Noodle/dp/B00HXIXWKM
As for the egg, it wont take long to get it right. Low heat, and gently pour the egg into the pan. Pick out the shells first before they get lost in the cooked egg whites.
found it online
Just buy a bunch of cheap ass noodles they're cheap AF and absolutely delicious.

Snow and Climate
I came from a tropical country, passed by the Equator, day/night cycle is always stable, there's only 2 season : dry & rainy season. Average temperature around 27-30 Celsius.
Enter UK, 4 seasons, different day/night cycle each season, and Daylight Savings Time. First winter was rough, I had to wear a quad layer clothing in order to survive the near-zero temperature outside. Now it's spring and I'm sweating on 15 degree Celsius (that's already freezing in Indonesia).
> Favourite indonesian and british dish?
Indonesian dish? Top pick :
Put three of them in front of me and I'm a happy man. Total cost of that food should be around 4 Pounds for 1 servings here in UK, in Indonesia its MUCH cheaper, less than 1 Pounds for 4 servings.
As for one thats easily available worldwide, I think it's Indomie Goreng. IMO, that's the best Instant Noodle in my Country.
As for British Dish, I can't say much, haven't found any british-specific dish here. And if there's any, I doubt I can eat it since I only eat halal meat and can't consume any alcohols (you can call it inconvenient but I've lived with it since I was born, so no big deal xD)
Huy Fon - Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
You're right, I am all of those things, and dudes are my specialty. (For the record, I do like Tabasco)
I find different dishes call for different sauces. The more sauces you try, the better of an idea you'll get for yourself what works with what. Note that the below links might not be the best prices and you can probably find a lot of these sauces at your local grocery store (unless you live in some cultural black hole like the American midwest). I spent my earlier years in southern California and developed a taste early on for Mexican cuisine, so my taste is highly reflective of that influence.
I enjoy these Mexican-style sauces:
El Yucateco is a great brand, in my opinion. They have a lot of awesome varieties. If you go to an authentic Mexican restaurant, you'll likely find it there:
There are some other popular sauces which if I were to omit, people around here would be very angry:
There are a lot of boutique sauces out there that just pump out the Scoville units for the hell of it. A lot of them are gag gifts or novelties, but there are people out there that genuinely enjoy the rush you can get from them - you do get an adrenaline rush, it IS a high. Most of the sauces like this, however, are intended for cooking beef chili and other dishes where a small amount can be distributed through a larger portion of food.
Try Amazon.co.uk or amazon.de, they might ship there :)
Here ya go mate, order her a whole bunch :)
The recipe I used was based off Paula Deen’s Southern Fried Chicken recipe with some modifications: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/southern-fried-chicken-recipe.html
The 3 major modifications I made:
The most challenging parts of the cook were breaking down the chicken and keeping the oil at a steady 350.
Prepping (the day before)
I front-loaded some of the work the day before, too, but you could do this the day of.
Break down the chicken
I brute forced 4 chickens on Friday and didn’t do enough research… here’s a good video on how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGb1G3CFZvc Another good one from Alton Brown: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ9OLPC-dkE
I ended up with 2 drum sticks, 2 breasts, 2 thighs, and 2 wings. All of the pieces should include the bones, including the breast. Set it aside.
Create the brine
Mix together in a large tupperware:
Add all the chicken pieces, seal it, and put it in the fridge for 12-24 hours. Flip the chicken halfway through.
Create the egg/sauce mix
In another medium tupperware, mix together:
Create the dredge
In my cook, I just put 2 cups self rising flour in a tupperware.
Create the house seasoning
Mix it together and put it into an old spice container or pizza shaker: 1 cup kosher salt ¼ cup black pepper ¼ cup garlic powder ¼ cup smoked paprika
Do not cook the chicken cold. You want to time it so the chicken is near room temperature when you’re adding it to the oil. I waited about 45 minutes.
Add the oil to the pan. I filled mine just before ⅔ full. Bring the heat to 350, carefully monitoring using a thermometer. I had my burner at about 5.5/10.
Remove the chicken from the fridge and dump the brine down the drain. Remove all of the fresh herbs from the chicken and pat it dry with paper towels.
Season the chicken liberally on all sides with the house seasoning.
Using tongs, take the chicken and dunk it into the egg/hot sauce mixture. Let it drip dry, then transfer it over to the tupperware containing the self rising flour. I did 3-4 pieces at a time. Close the container and shake. Remove the chicken from the flour and shake it to remove excess flour.
Once you’re done you’ll have a big pile of chicken. Let it side for 5 minutes to allow the flour to set. Remember, you want to avoid putting cold chicken into the hot oil.
Once your oil is at 350, add the chicken. If you’re doing just one chicken, you can position it so everything ends up finishing around the same time. Put the thigh meat in the middle and everything else around it, with the white meat towards the edge of the pan. Skin side down.
Cook it for 10-12 minutes, then flip it. Using your meat thermometer, track the inside temperature of the chicken breast. Remove it once it reaches 165 and put it on the cookie sheet / rack (do not use paper towels!).
Serve it hot. If you’re doing a bunch all at once, you can put it in the oven at 200 for a little while until it’s ready to serve.
Currently a big bottle of this
but i vary if i use one up. Used to just always have Tabasco but went off it a bit as found it too sweet. Usually just grab something thats hot and on offer!
This sriracha is $2.64. I've never had it before and I'm thinking it would be good with all of the foods
Wooooo okay! Here's 1-20, and I will give the bonus ones a go in just a few minutes! fear cuts deeper than swords
1.) Something that is grey. How about a knife set?!
2.) Something reminiscent of rain. Cinema Paradiso! The cover of it is two people in the rain :) (Movies wishlist)
3.) Something food related that is unusual. This Manatea infuser is unusual! (Default wishlist)
4.) Something on your list that is for someone other than yourself. Tell me who it's for and why. (Yes, pets count!) I have a pet wishlist and a wishlist for my best friend! This traveling litter box is the perfect combination--it's so I can take my kitty on trips to my best friend's place! (Kitty wishlist)
5.) A book I should read! I am an avid reader, so take your best shot and tell me why I need to read it! Why have just one book when you could have 3000?! This little usb is loaded with over 3000 classic novels. Yes, almost all of these novels are free on Project Gutenberg, but having them all in one spot ready for you to peruse is amazing. You're almost guaranteed to find a book worth reading that you haven't read yet! (Books wishlist)
6.) An item that is less than a dollar, including shipping... that is not jewelry, nail polish, and or hair related! Well, not a physical item, but I have an mp3! (Music wishlist)
7.) Something related to cats. I love cats! (keep this SFW, you know who you are...) Kitty nail caps! I have a sphynx, so I have to clip her nails roughly every week (otherwise when she scratches herself, she cuts herself up D:). Nail caps are a cute and more hassle-free way of dealing with her claws! (Kitty wishlist)
8.) Something that is not useful, but so beautiful you must have it. This one is pretty tough for me, actually--I love purposeful items! However, I already have a cheese grater, so this hedgehog shaped one isn't actually something I NEED--it's just so cool!! (Default wishlist)
9.) A movie everyone should watch at least once in their life. Why? Life is Beautiful. It's a sweet, touching, and heartbreaking story of a Jewish father trying to keep the joy in life in a concentration camp. It's laugh-out-loud funny, and so sad you'll cry. Definitely worth watching. (Movies wishlist)
10.) Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. Explain. Packaged, high-cal foods will be really helpful! You have to keep your energy up while you're on the run, and you need a portable snack! These cookies are sure to give you the extra boost you need to escape the zombies. (Default wishlist)
11.) Something that would have a profound impact on your life and help you to achieve your current goals. Hmmm this is a toss-up for me. I need a laptop for life. I have a little chromebook, but when I need to update my resumes and write cover letters, I need to go to the library to use an actual computer to make sure the formatting is right. A laptop would help with the job hunt and (hopefully) help land me a job! (Expensive things wishlist) My other goal, to become healthier, would be helped by wrist weights to wear during my runs! No, it's not a huge amount of weight, but it will make my runs that much more difficult and help tone my arms! It's a small change with a big impact :) (Default wishlist)
12.) One of those pesky Add-On items. Oh gosh, take your pick. Cat snuggie (kitty wishlist), sriracha (who doesn't love hot sauce?! Under $6 wishlist), a pumice stone (Under $6 wishlist), or a kitty laser toy! (kitty wishlist)
13.) The most expensive thing on your list. Your dream item. Why? A $500 keyboard. I love playing piano, but I'm a young and flighty thing--I fully expect to be moving around a lot for the next 5-10 years, and I can neither afford an actual piano, nor can I imagine transporting one in and out of various apartments. This keyboard will give me the chance to practice and enjoy playing, but it's a much more compact and liveable way of doing so. (Expensive things wishlist)
14.) Something bigger than a bread box. A relatively cheap and yet still nice vacuum cleaner! Nice, easy to use, and practical :) (Expensive things)
15.) Something smaller than a golf ball. A storm trooper USB! Cute and practical! (Default wishlist)
16.) Something that smells wonderful. Lavender chamomile bubble bath! I don't know about you, but few things smell more relaxing to me than lavender and chamomile, so a combo bubble bath just sounds like bliss to me. (Default wishlist)
17.) A (SFW) toy. Here's a whole bag of toys! And less than $10 too! My kitty would have a field day with all those toys :) (Kitty wishlist!)
18.) Something that would be helpful for going back to school. A lunch box! I always brought my lunch to school, so every year I got a cool new lunch box for that year :) These ones are super cute, and insulated! (Default wishlist)
19.) Something related to your current obsession, whatever that may be. I've had a life-long Disney obsession! (Movies wishlist) My whole bathroom is Mickey themed (default wishlist), and I'm always looking for cool new Disney items to add to my wishlist! I seriously love Disney.
20.) Something that is just so amazing and awe-inspiring that I simply must see it. Explain why it is so grand. You too can own the Sword of Gryffindor! (Expensive things wishlist) Not only do you get to wield the weapon that destroyed three pieces of Voldemort's soul, it's also pretty practical! It's a letter opener that you can proudly display resting in the hands of a lion :) (Expensive things wishlist)
African Rhino Peri-Peri Extra Hot Sauce
Zombie Apocalypse Ghost Chili Sauce
These things are called Retort pouches, and they are amazing. One of my favorites for hiking trips is Madras Lentils.
there is a product that you can buy. it is stored in the pantry no refrigeration required. it's meatless, vegan and still really good! they are called Madras Lentils. they can be found in the grocery store. and sometimes Costco will carry them. Much cheaper at Costco. you can get a box of 9 packs for $10. Here is a link
they are good as a bowl of chili, in tacos, nachos, and on hot dogs or hamburgers for chili burgers or dogs.
Another idea is when you cook to make more than you are going to eat so that you have leftovers. for instance, Rotisserie chicken. after dinner. pick the chicken clean. now you have meat for soup, casseroles, burritos, enchiladas, etc...
Ground beef, can be made into meatloaf sliced and frozen. sloppy joe sauce can be frozen, Salisbury steaks also can be made ahead and made into meals and frozen. would make great lunches or dinners.
Cooked ground beef, you can make again taco seasoned meat, for tacos nachos, burritos etc. also you can make sloppy joes, hamburger gravy etc.
Do you have a crock pot? If you don't, that's likely the best way to spend these $15 for long-term easier cheaper food. Amazon Warehouse Deals is the best place to look (imo). The Crock-Pot SCR300-SS 3-Quart Manual Slow Cooker, Silver is $15.67 right now but there are a bunch of other options too. It makes cooking dry beans a lot easier, and is just overall a great kitchen tool for spending less money on food and making cooking simpler.
If food is the thing you need most, here's what I'd buy personally (I don't live anywhere near a whole foods, and Amazon Fresh is not available in my area). I'm focusing on convenience foods for this because the real basics- rice, beans, oats, flour, are at least twice as expensive on Amazon (for me) in comparison to local options. The three items listed below are the same price or cheaper on Amazon as they are locally, and total $14.02 .
(Those aren't referral links, I don't have that kind of thing set up cause I've got other stuff to do.)
All natural as in just nuts. That's usually how it's branded. The other stuff just tastes like sweet brown lard to me.
I tour a lot in cold climates and dinner is pretty important to me. If you eat cheese, boxed mac and cheese works really well. Some nights I'd eat two entire boxes with olive oil and the cheese packets, or butter if I had it. You can add one of those Indian entree pouches (amazon.com/Tasty-Bite-Indian-Lentils-Microwaveable/dp/B0007R9L4M) to mac and cheese as well, or just to a shitload of pasta with butter/oil and chunks of cheese. As for bread, buns from grocery stores work well, they are squishy rather than crumbly like bread slices and they are scalable. Buy however many you need. Slather one with butter, peanut butter, honey and a throw in a chunk of cheddar, it's a good breakfast. Avocados are a good green to eat, they go well with cheese and bread and travel reasonably well near the top of a pannier. They also have a ton of calories. I'd get a carrot once in a while to eat raw and feel like I was getting vegetables. You can also grab some broccoli, chop it up, throw it in about halfway through your pasta/mac cooking, and you get some veggies in the meal. I'd supplement every meal with as many spoonfuls of some kind of butter/honey/peanut butter slurry as I needed to feel full.
Trail staples like peanut butter, Nutella, trail mix, hard candies/chocolates will all keep really well without refrigeration. Things like Spam Singles and tuna singles are really shelf stable and versatile. Instant oatmeal is also an easy breakfast and pretty negligible in terms of weight, especially since all you need is some hot water. I like taking instant polenta for the same reason - fills you up, takes 3 minutes to cook and is great with some salami or cheese mixed in.
There's also a supermarket chain in Iceland called Bonus and there are quite a few of them around the place. They have a huge selection of things like salami and hard cheeses which were staples of what I carried while I was there (spent 3.5 weeks hiking/camping the whole country basically). Tortillas are light and easy to pack and would definitely last you a week.
Also: Spam and eggs on the trail is just about the most heavenly start to a day of heavy hiking.
I use this calculator from the Mayo Clinic. According to that, if you are completely inactive 1600 calories a day will maintain your current weight. So if you consume, 1100 calories a day you will lose one pound per week (3500 calories per pound). You can eat a bit more and you'll simply lose weight at a slightly slower rate. Just never go above 1600 calories in a day.
Finding foods that taste good is key to success. I make a shake with the extreme milk chocolate flavor of this protein powder and soy milk. It is delicious. It literally tastes like a chocolate milkshake (as the Amazon reviews confirm), but is really good for you. Low calorie and high in protein. Another dish I make are these beans with garlic powder and other spices. Sometimes I add rice, but not too much (because rice are pure carbs). These beans are high in fiber and protein, so they are perfect. And the spices make the whole thing taste really good. The full receipe is here. The whole dish only costs $1.30 a meal and you can literally have all the ingredients shipped to your door from Amazon. Another tip is that if you drink, you can use the website Get Drunk Not Fat to make efficient choices about what you drink. :) Finally, be sure to take a multivitamin to make sure you get all the nutrients you need even though you have a calorie deficit.
Eat smart and the pounds will fly off in no time. I find the Hall of Fame to be really awesome motivation. With each pound you lose it will become easier to stay away from the bad stuff. Then once you are at your goal weight, you can start to eat more calories because then you just need to maintain. You don't have to be perfect, you just need to make smart choices overall. You can do it, I promise. :)
FYI: I discovered these a few weeks ago, but I can't bring myself to pull the trigger and buy black soybeans without trying one can.
I'm with you there. But, you can make your own refried beans out of these beans and they taste great! Then you can make these tortillas and you could have an amazing bean burrito that's around 4 or 5 carbs. And that's if you load it up with beans.
If he just has to have some sort of beans, black soy beans are super low carb and a great replacement!
This is mine. My non-keto SO loves it.
Cook the bacon. Remove it from the pan and cook the chorizo and ground beef in the bacon grease. Throw everything except cilantro and sour cream in a slow cooker for 8 or so hours. Top with cilantro and sour cream.
In my house we call this chili "Scott can't have this, it has pork".
They don't make good baked beans, but black soy beans are low carb and pretty darn good. Not sure if the carb count is in the link, but they are low carb.

Edit to add the nutritional label I found online http://www.edenfoods.com/store/images/products/nlea/103050.gif
Black soy beans! They're kind of hard to find in the wild but they're readily available on Amazon.
Kraft offered a shaker can of the same cheese powder that came in Mac N Cheese (Dinner, to Canadians) but they discontinued it.
On popcorn, it was glorious, but you had to find zero-butter popcorn or it tasted like crap, for some reason
If you can't find any, feel free to pm me an address and I can send you a packet next time I go to the post office. (: I have them stockpiled hahaha. Oh an also, Mama noodles are my favorite ramen noodles, so much better than Maruchan or Top Ramen or any of that nonsense. It's also only 260 calories! 63% of your sodium but what are you going to do.
Best tip I can give you is to not buy Ramen brand. Buy [these]http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000QFOXTS). They taste ten times better and come with the flavor packet plus a chili powder packet and grease packet. You can get them online or at an asian market near you. You will not be disappointed!
SUMMER NOW PLZ
It was 75 here the other week and then snowing 2 days later... So done with winter lol.
Anyways, 2 songs!
First one :)
2nd one! I would do anything for you by Foster the people!
If I won, I would love some food :p
Thanks for the contest!
I would add
mac and cheese http://smile.amazon.com/Kraft-Macaroni-Cheese-7-25-Ounce-Boxes/dp/B0019RLJV2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1407189734&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=kraft+macaroni+and+cheese
I gifted on my old account, does that count?
The most important thing on my wishlist right now is probably this macaroni and cheese. It's important because I accidentally overdrafted the bank account, and I need to make sure we have enough food to last us until next Friday.
Here's something for that burger: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0039LDMV6/ref=aw_1st_sims_4?pi=SY115
$3.33 per can when purchased as a case of 12.
$2.19 per can when ordered as a case of 12.
It's a significant discount over Whole Foods.
https://www.amazon.com/Wild-Planet-Sardines-Virgin-Lightly/dp/B003H7YHUW/ I got the sardines, they sound awesome. Big, fatty, meat only, and clean.
I prefer Pasta Sides + a packet of tuna/salmon/chicken. Quick to cook, filling, light, and cheap.
Overall looks like a good multi-day list. I compared with my gear list and these are the discrepancies:
My go-to items for meals:
Just remember you can mix and match some form of pasta and some type of meat and the possibilities are endless. If you're worried about food you can always fall back on the easy (albeit expensive) pre-made dehydrated meals at REI.
Beans, hemp seeds, tofu, seitan, nuts/seeds, all have a good amount of protein. explore asia makes some bean noodles that have a really high
macroprotein count. This protein powder is also good and cheap. /r/veganfitness has some good posts.
Late to the party, but I have this same product. I bought it from Amazon. It's packaged for the US and has US labelling. Mine says that it's 17g Total Carbohydrates 12g Dietary Fibres and 5g sugars.
Also I believe Canada follows the same standard when it comes to labelling total carbs.
No problem, also Black Bean Spaghetti is awesome too!
Egg whites are pretty versatile too, I bake them in jumbo muffin tins for 35min @ 350 with beans and spinach. I place the muffins on a bed of quinoa / spinach / hot sauce / taco seasoning / avocado and it's delicious! Scrambled eggs are also very easy to make quickly.
Seek out the bean pastas and replace some carbs with them, they clock in 25g protein a serving.
But yeah, I snack on greek yogurt, cottage cheese, canned tuna (makes a good dip or salad). Chicken/turkey breast sausage is pretty good, or just make patties or meatballs yourself for something cheaper. I also make chocolate/peanutbutter protein balls (there's various recipes online, but pick one that has a couple scoops of whey in it)
She ordered this off of Amazon and said it was awesome (didn't give me any though T_T). I'm gonna keep an eye out for other places that might have them.
Good luck in your journey!! It helps a lot to have a diet buddy to keep you on track. I'm glad she's good with giving it a go :)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004NSG8F6?pc_redir=1412005897&amp;robot_redir=1 Costco sells this, I can't recall the exact nutrition, but it is a good pasta replacement and more protein.
I have a 12 Gallon Mr. Aqua with 7 similis.
I'd get a pack of 36 escargot shells from Amazon for about $17.
Get 20 lbs. of Caribsea for $11.
I'd use 1 to 2 sponge filters to keep it cheap and safe for the fry.
Here are some I found on amazon. After shipping it's $19 for 24 shells.
And here are some with prime shipping $15 for 36 shells.
Both have reviews with people who have used them with shell dwellers.
Here are a few examples:
Hey, see if someone you know has a bulk buyer's club card. Sometimes you can find canned chicken breast for cheap. http://www.amazon.com/Kirkland-Signature-chicken-premium-12-5-ounce/dp/B004YPJKBC
"REI has some fancy ones," I hate to break it to you, but other than the extra $1 or so they charge for being in an REI those aren't that fancy. If you want tolerable MREs that are easy to use just suck it up and buy a few of those and some cliff bars. Otherwise Wal-Mart has similar ones for maybe $1-$2 less each that taste the same.
I mean you're buying food that has been fully prepared and cooked then freeze-dried so you won't find any TV-dinner type stuff.
If you want military grade MREs with 1300calories per meal go for these Amazon Military Surplus MREs. Still ~$7 per meal. I backpack often and usually just buy the Wal-Mart/Gander Mountain one for $5.
those were made in 2011....
So like, just buy a lifetime supply of these?
Well I'm vegetarian not vegan lol but here's my $0.02:
Hope that helped!
Like someone else said, you need to test yourself before and after you eat to find out what foods in what amounts cause you to spike your BG level. When I am trying a new food to see if it will be OK for me to eat, I test before, one hour after, two hours after, and four hours after. If any of the readings after eating are 35-40 above the pre meal reading, I don't eat that food anymore. So once you have eliminated the foods you cannot eat, you develop a diet plan, one you can sustain for the rest of your life, around those foods you can eat. Potatoes, pasta, grains, anything made with flour, probably corn, many fruits, and of course anything with sugar is off the menu for you now.
If you have been diagnosed with T2 by a medical doctor, then you should be on Metformin. Its a great drug with decades of patient data to show that it works and has a low risk of causing other health issues. I get it from Walmart for under their $4 prescription plan. Be ready for at least a couple of weeks of tummy rumbling and frequent bathroom visits. I recommend psyllium husk capsules or metamucil to help balance this out. What Metformin does is it counteracts the resistance the cells in your body have built up to insulin, allowing the sugar in your bloodstream to be absorbed into the cells, thus lowering your blood sugar levels.
Many people feel sluggish after eating without being diabetic, so there is no way a kind internet stranger can tell you with certainty that Metformin will cure this for you. Overall I feel better taking Metformin and eating right.
I absolutely love pasta and have not yet found anything on the market that tastes as good as "real" pasta and doesn't spike my BG level. The best thing I found was this, which my local store carries, but its very expensive:
The best thing I have found is homemade noodles made from soy flour, which is quite low in carbs and high in protein, better than chickpeas. Here is the recipe I use. It is fairly labor intensive. I would roll the dough out as thin as I could and use a pizza cutter to slice noodles as thin as I could. They were still pretty thick but they worked as noodles.
One other tip that has helped me. At least browse some of the keto subs and sites and Youtube channels for recipes. Some are crap, some are ok and some are absolute genius. Its up to you if you want to jump on the keto wagon, some folks swear by for controlling T2. IMHO its worth looking at what they are selling and deciding for yourself what will work for you.
Best of luck to you!
The best way to gain weight on a budget is to just eat more cheap foods. Go to the bulk foods section and load up on everything. Next in line is your high carb foods; oats, potatoes and fruits, especially if you're juicing your fruits. If you feel like you just can't eat anymore than you'll need to look at ways of increasing the caloric density of your foods. Which means eating more fatty and processed foods; nuts, seeds and avocados, fake meats and cheeses, cereals, protein bars, shots of olive oil. Don't do that last one. But these tend be a little to a lot more expensive, but you can find some really delicious and inventive foods that aren't too expensive. Like these black bean noodles! Also I'm not an athlete or anything so go check out /r/veganfitness for some advice from people that do this everyday.
These are on Amazon and if you don't wanna make your own they do pretty well. Firm and chewy, they have the base elements in the noodle. link. No sauce pack just noodles. I have used these before for making dipping noodles in a pinch.
I will have to try it with kimchi!
Someone from r/ramen recommended that I use these types of noodles, so that's on my list of things to try next time I make ramen.
If you don't mind getting them online:
Ive never seen that flavor before but according to Maruchan's website, they still make it in the "bowl" version.
I just bought a case of these though.
They're pretty good for when I'm looking for a quick fix.
I recommend starting at Amazon and just seeing if you can find what you want online. Maruchan's website also has a "Contact Us" section. Could always send them an email. Maybe they'll ship you a case.
Have you tried the Nissan brand black garlic ramen? It's $28.99 on Amazon for a 30 pack and I've thought about trying it out.
[Link](Nissin Demae Black Garlic Oil Instant Ramen Noodles 30 Packs https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CORJU5S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_0oHuzb9XM4FJ3)
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nissin-Garlic-Tonkotsu-Flavour-Instant/dp/B00CORJU5S/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1543102360&sr=8-1&keywords=black+garlic+tonkotsu if you want some, they have other flavours/bbrands as well. Great for someone like me stuck where the only noodles are pot and super
I grew up on Nissin Demae Black Garlic Oil, thus my obsession. After I figured how to make it, I got bottles. It's like black truffle oil you can make yourself.
thats a bold claim... my favorite instant ramen is still Nissin Demae Black Garlic
Though, to be specific, it should be something like the MSG packet for this instant noodles, which would turn water into the "soup broth"...
Brains are extraordinarily high in cholesterol but if you're curious you could always order them off Amazon
Better stock up, everyone
Dude, you can get them in cans at the grocery store or have them conveniently delivered to your door. I've always heard of people scrambling them with eggs and eating it with biscuits and gravy but whatever floats your boat I guess.
You mean the people who make the Hot Cock Sriracha sauce?
Here is the hot sauce I would force down the throat of anyone who tried to defraud me. If that were not enough, I would jam this up his backside as far as it would go so I could watch him wriggle and squirm.
NOT MY CARD.
Ooh crazy's what they think about me
> I actually used some last winter as kindling for my fire because I didn't have any thing else except big logs, they burn really well lol
Oh yeah. They burn real good. Full of calories. It's one of my favorite snacks but I've had to forgo them because I am counting calories now. When I look at that meager handful of 8 chips that represents 150 kcalories, it's hard to justify eating them.
And to think I used to eat them by the bag too... shudder
> I think vanilla icecream works best.
I was going to ask but I had assumed as much. That being said, I am definitely going to try it on peppermint as well... just because I like peppermint and I am curious if it will still work.
> I really can't explain the taste of vegemite even though I've eaten it for 27 years.
"Vegemite tastes like... it just tastes like Vegemite!" is always the answer I get when I ask, which is why I need to try it. Anything that can only be described by the identity property is something I have to try. ;)
> My advice is less is more with that stuff, don't use it like you would use jam (or jelly I think you call it) if you're having it on toast.
Don't be a hero, got it. Thank you for the tip, I would've totally used too much. I was thinking "peanut butter" amounts actually. I'll be sure to dial it back when I try it.
> I'll definitely try that one of I can get my hands on it! Thanks.
You may have to order it online. It's not a super common sauce even in the US as-of-yet. Keep in mind, if you love hot sauce for the heat, this one is on the milder side (I don't know if there's cultural heat tolerance differences).
A couple other hot sauce suggestion:
Frank's Red Hot Sauce: It's been around for a while, it's commercialized, but damn if it isn't good. Medium heat but strong cayenne pepper flavor with a vinegar base. Similar to Tabasco but more flavor less heat. A requirement for US style "Buffalo Wings."
Sriracha sauce (sometimes affectionately known as "cock sauce" due to the logo, at least in my neck of the woods) is also really good. Tough to explain the flavor, actually, but it's really, really well-balanced.
If you are into hot for the heat, Dave's is what you want to try. Hurtin' Habanero is the one I recommend for a good blend of heat and flavor; it's hotter than any other suggestion I've made on here, but it has LOADS of Habanero flavor and damn that is a tasty pepper! But it's mid-scale heat on Dave's own products.
The first Dave's product I ever tried was Dave's Insanity Sauce. At the time, I thought I LOVED hot food unconditionally; I'd get extra hot food from the Thai places and I loved jalapeno chips and things like that. Well, a friend said this stuff was "actually hot" and I should try a drop of it on my tongue. It had a REALLY good flavor, wow. And it wasn't that hot. So I took another drop myself. Still tasted soooo good.
Then it hit me. My mouth started to burn. A burn like I had never experienced. And wouldn't stop. Nothing would stop it. Ice-cream, milk, salt, oil (I was desperate). Best thing I could do was fill my mouth with cold water, hold still, and then fill with more cold water. I was able to return to my normal life after about 3 hours.
It was unpleasant on the way out too.
I now know that the upper-heat levels on Dave's is more for use in a dish to add heat, just a drop or two in a soup will be noticed. Or used as a challenge/haze.
We just emptied our bottle of sriracha. My favorite food is sushi!
Thanks for the contest!
Not sure. I do know its available online pretty easily. Amazon ships to pretty much everywhere.
I can't imagine a reason it wouldn't pack and travel well. And if you buy 5 bottles at a time you get free shipping.
Buy some of this at your local grocery store. I put it on everything. Taste amazing with rice.
Nope, but I'm looking to get some.
Does this look original to you?
yummy-ness on everything
I'm trying to figure out the floating booger looking things. We normally don't put book Choy in the noodles. That's just getting fancy and a personal preference of the chef. There's also slices of pork meat near the greens. The chilis are also according to preference. We would put sirracha or sambal oelek or other chili paste sauce with hoisin sauce, squeeze some lime and bean sprouts.
Edit: there's also chopped green onions, chopped cilantro, and fried chopped garlic (very tiny piece I can see near the greens).
My lifesaver has been Cindy's Balsamic Vinaigrette It is DELICIOUS and I put it everything! They also have a Vegan Thousand Island you may like too! I usually take sliced bell peppers and some Cindy's to dip it in (so you can digest all that fibrous goodness) as a quick snack. Apples and almond butter are yummy, and microwavable lentils similar to these can make for a good snack when you want a little more than just a fruit or veggie.
I have started substituting lentils for meat in large pots of chilli. I used to use two lbs of ground turkey breast, now I use 1 pound of turkey and around half a pound or a little more of lentils. They work very well in chilli. I got the idea because I bought these from Costco and they are very tasty.
I am looking forward to blasting myself out of my neighborhood and exploring more of my city. It's time to be a hometown tourist in 2015.
Edit: added link
I'm pretty sure my sister lived on peanut butter pretzel crackers and Chipotle while in studio (undergrad and masters). But, I'd suggest a bag of apples, Tasty Bites with minute rice, and peanut butter/banana tortilla roll ups.
There is a brand called Tasty Bites that makes ethnic style foods that come in an envelope and they don't need refrigeration until you open the pouch. (amazon link to one variety) do you have access to a microwave? When the roofers came to work on my house they brought their own microwave, lol.
Sliced good salami, (smoked so doesn't require fridge), oranges/tangerines don't smell bad, go to bulk section of grocer and get nuts and trail mix ingredients, Costco has these beans & lentils that you just heat up they are good, (these ones: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0007R9L4M/ref=mw_dp_img?is=l), baby carrots in Tupperware with a napkin to absorb moisture, pretzels, (peanut butter to dip both in!), beef/turkey jerky, raisins.....now im hungry.
They are very cheap on Amazon
havne't tried them yet, but I want to
Just a fyi, they sell these at my local supermarket and at walmart near me and is a good substitute to black beans and taste great imo.
I'd probably just omit beans and make it a meat-heavy chili like most other people are suggesting.
If your mother really wants the taste of beans for some reason, black soybeans are very low in net carbs. They might be tough to find in person though
> 0.8 grams of protein per pound of lean bodyweight should suffice
I agree, I've seen this number in plenty of places. Just wondering why multiple servings of protein powder instead of whole foods, I guess? I tend to limit my intake to one serving a day, but at the end of the day that's personal preference. Again, nuts, eggs, tofu, meat replacements are other good sources.
>Problem with beans, black soybeans or otherwise, is that they're way too high in carbs - otherwise, I would love to.
Black soy beans only have 1 gram net carb. They're great for veggie keto. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000GZS9Q6/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_HcmZxb4MVJ9T3
>Also, could you expand on why evening is a "weird place" for it?
Re: bulletproof coffee. I've been doing IF as well, I definitely get not drinking it in the morning. Usually people use bullet proof coffee as a tool to stave off hunger for a long time. It seems like a weird place to use those calories, since you'll likely be eating a large meal soon after. Why not include real food for those calories? I think that's why it feels strange. Maybe a fat bomb after dinner? Or some extra cheese with all that veg?
If you still want to do a bulletproof coffee, maybe after lunch to get you to dinner?
>I've never heard that yogurt is something to worry about and now I've heard it twice.
It IS only 7 grams of carbs, but straight from sugar. That is pretty indulgent, considering it's nearly half your carbs for the day. Also having something with that much sugar can cause more sugar cravings and more hunger, which is worse (in my experience) earlier in the day. Maybe try cottage cheese instead?
You can add some soybeans to your diet perhaps! They taste awesome in taco, salad, chilli etc
Here is the amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Eden-Organic-Black-Beans-15-Ounce/dp/B000GZS9Q6?th=1
and try Isopure Zero carb for smoothies and waffles. I made zero carb cookies with Isopure which had 11 protein and 57 Kcal!
I would like to add cans of black soybeans.
Eg. http://www.swervesweetener.com/products/swerve-sweetener-granular-12oz/ 0 calories, 0 grams of fiber, 0 grams of sugar, 0 grams of starch... yet 4g of carbs per serving. Or these ones -- https://www.amazon.com/Eden-Organic-Black-Beans-15-Ounce/dp/B000GZS9Q6... it's 8 grams of carbs per serving, but only one gram of actual net carbs... scallops by contrast are a higher carb food at 1.5g of sugar per oz.
Also haven't tried these yet I read their a good replacement for los frijoles. Gonna try one can if I can find them first. Only 1 carb per serving.
I misread the question and thought you were asking for the recipe for refrying. You can buy them in amazon https://www.amazon.com/Eden-Organic-Black-Beans-15-Ounce/dp/B000GZS9Q6
I read that they can be difficult to properly cook, but when cooked they are very similar to kidney beans. They are also available on Amazon. I'm still on the fence about trying them though..
If interested also check out black soy beans (link)
I use them in my chili all the time and work out very well.
You could also try cutting out the diced tomatos and add in a jar of salsa. That's another thing I do for my chili with great success.
They have them at my local upscale grocery store. But it looks like they are easily available online
2nd this also can get them off amazon Eden Organic Black Soy Beans, No Salt Added
Hells yes. I had one final canister of this stuff hoarded in the freezer from before they discontinued it, and went through quite a bit of it while pregnant. My grandmother always had a can of "Grated American Cheese Food" around, which is long gone, and I can't even find a pic of it on the Internets. Luckily this stuff is a fine replacement -- allegedly, it's actually Kraft powdered cheese.
I actually use Kraft Mac and Cheese Shakers to catch mice and rats. Sprinkle some on peanut butter and you're good to go!!
Here in the Midwest it is in the same section as grated Parm and Cheez Whiz. Its like a 6oz shaker can.
I found it on amazon if you're not in the MW. http://www.amazon.com/Kraft-Macaroni-Cheese-Topping-12CT/dp/B000I60JUW
Just be aware that the price markup online is ridiculous. E.g., Amazon sells Maruchan ramen 24-packs (those 5 for $1 noodles) for close to $20. Don't expect amazing quality for the price, because what you paid $16 for might have been like $6 at the local asian supermarket (not that it would be bad by any means, but not as gourmet as the price would indicate).
I honestly can't remember anything about the taste, but I had a couple college friends rave over Mama noodles. If you love spicy, Nongshim noodles have the best seasonings.
I would check out your local chain supermarkets and see if they have an 'asian' section; apparently Walmart sells those Mama noodles. And if you're ever in the area of an asian market, stock up like crazy lol.
Try these they sell them at Walmart and they're so friggen delicious.
This specific brand doesn't seem to be available anywhere online. But if you liked that flavor you might like Mama's Tom Yum or Mama's Spicy Tom Yum.
I’m glad you went. Hope you feel better soon.
Also, FYI, if I only had a week to live, I would buy a case of this: https://www.amazon.com/Mama-Tom-Yum-Flavour-Noodles/dp/B000QFOXTS
...or at least, that’s what I promise myself every time I see them in Walmart and don’t buy them, because I can’t do that to my stomach lining again. But they’re soooo good.
(Seriously, though, wait until you’re feeling better and done the antibiotics before experimenting with delicious spicy ramen.)
A whole new reality.
Blargh I found something one penny over!
The closest I have without going over is this which is five cents under! Thanks for the contest :)
Either way, Macaroni and Cheese is always a good thing to have on hand! And games are always fun! :)
This Mac n cheese is 1 cent over, but come on MAC N CHEESE! :3

Pasta (there are others, but this seemed like a lot for the money, at least at first glance, and given that we're talking Amazon Prime): http://www.amazon.com/Barilla-Pasta-Rotini-Farfalle-Value/dp/B003N9HMQ0/ref=sr_1_34?s=grocery&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1419134819&amp;sr=1-34&amp;keywords=pasta

There are lots of others; these are just thoughts. They're things you say you like, and honestly, I'd rather buy them than Pringles (for one thing, they are much more yummy.) Let me now if you update it; in any case, happy holidays1
You can't get cheaper than this. That's about a pound ($1.33) a box! There aren't many cheese mongers around (and in the US they will sell "artesenal" cheese at huge markups). Trust me, the only thing cheaper are ramen noodle packets.
Holy crap, are you serious? 50 dollars is a lot of money. That's loads of food.
I'd say I could make these last a long time:
The 52 count oatmeal
The 15 pack of kraft mac and cheese
The 12 pack of Big Beef Ravioli
Those would last me a good long time. Especially the oatmeal. I can make that last for ages. I'll leave it up to your discretion though as well. I've had mac and cheese with just water and it's really not the worst thing in the world. Certainly better than nothing! Thank you so, so much!
They have real canned bacon on amazon. Ready to eat also.
Damn good prize. But I doubt anyone will guess it.
Yoders tastes the same and is pretty much the same.
I've got the porkopocalypse covered for in my [preparations] (https://www.amazon.com/Cans-full-Yoders-Canned-Bacon/dp/B0039LDMV6)
A few burners recommended me to get these so I'll be sure to stock up! Some delicious curry / stew at Burning Man would be great!
I'm personally excited about bringing a case of Yoders Bacon. It'll be legendary.
Sardines in oil if you can find them. . Fry them up in a bunch of coconut butter and thai curry sauce -- add a shit-ton of greens and a couple of eggs and it's a party. You're also eating the super food's super food with your ass literally blowing up with Omega 3s, Turmeric and whatever the fuck is in coconut butter that is so good for you.
Just eat them straight.
Also, as an overlap of /r/Frugal, Walmart and Amazon both sell them in 12 can packs for $1.50-$2.00 a can, a lot better than the normally $2.50-$3.00 a can.
Edit - ignore all of this (bad math)
Canned sardines ftw. Even the more expensive Wild Planet sardines are competitive as fish oil sources. 1800mg EPA+DHA per can at $2.32 per can equates to $0.013 per 100mg. Kirkland signature is $0.011 per 100mg. Plus with sardines you get protein, iron, calcium, zinc, and more. You can by cheaper sardines for a little less than half that, but the quality isn't as good IMO. Of course, you have to like eating sardines...
I'm personally a fan of these
Dang, here try this one
Chicken of the Sea Premium Skinless & Boneless Pink Salmon, 2.5 oz. (Pack of 12)
Look for stuff like this. A couple foil packs of salmon, tuna, etc. Easy to pack. Tastes great.
Oh, I assumed this would be about the low-carb black bean spaghetti some Costcos have reportedly started selling. Curious about that one.
Not bad for me, I think around 5g for one serving (similar to pasta). Never had shirataki noodles they sound suuuuper gross. Believe me this is very normal, it kind of feels like whole wheat pasta. Actually it's most like a brown rice pasta I had once. It doesn't smell like anything and it doesn't have a strong taste of its own either.
I think [this](http://www.amazon.com/Explore-Asian-Organic- Spaghetti-7-05-Ounce/dp/B004NSG8F6) was what I had, it was just like this. I got mine at the grocery store.
I got mine on amazon https://www.amazon.com/Roland-Snail-Shells-Extra-Large/dp/B004Y18ANU/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1522934173&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=escargot+shells&amp;dpID=51yzNQumKtL&amp;preST=_SX300_QL70_&amp;dpSrc=srch

I am so sorry. MREs are your best answer for balance and price. My parish gives out emergency food packages for folks who are homeless or suddenly stranded, with lost of chicken salad instant meals and individually packaged fruit cups, but that is a killingly expensive option (and boring) option over the long haul. Make sure your car gets equipped with a dish pan and soap/rags/towels for cleaning any dishes you do use, because food poisoning is bad. Also 2 small coolers, one for hot and one for cold will let you take advantage of the ability to use the office kitchen microwave and fridge while you are otherwise "camping".
Get him some of these, trust me they're worth their weight in gold and last forever.
Here ya go! https://www.amazon.com/Meals-Ready-Genuine-Military-Surplus/dp/B005I5ML36
In the US. I can buy a case of them on Amazon for $76.75 & FREE Shipping (that's about $6.40 each).
Edit: They appear to have updated the case price to $81.70 (that's about $6.80 each)
Although the seller has caught on to the sudden demand for black bean noodles on Amazon (£37? runs fast away), the others - mung bean fettucine and soybean spaghetti (this one has a weird picture of dog food for some reason) are still £18! Both have only 6 carbs each, only one more than the black bean noodles, and just as much protein!
So do not be alarmed, ladies and gentleketoes, for help is at hand!
add-ons are pesky
low carb pasta!
ty for the contest!
Good reviews on Amazon!
Try some of this pasta. It's pretty tasty and packed full of protein with a decently low amount of carbs.
Husband and I live on this in the winter. We make pasta bake casseroles and layer the pasta (I found it best to layer vs mix sauce right in as normal) with ground beef, low carb tomato sauce, and cheese over and over and bake it in the oven. Should be easy to sub in lots of veggies!
Not sure if anyone has seen this.
I buy it. either this stuff, which I pay about $3 for at Fairway or Whole Foods, or I go to chinatown and buy a chinese labelled version for $1.
High in calories? Black bean pasta usually has somewhere on the order of 180 kcal and 25g protein for a 56g serving. On its own that's a great protein-to-calorie ratio, much less after you add meat sauce to it.
I was in the same boat when I started, struggling to put away 2000 a day, so I have like, powerful skinny person empathy.
A part of eating more is going to come down to just doing it consistently for long enough that your stomach expands, but we can focus on the finer details in the interim.
So for your breakfast, you should try replacing cream cheese with peanutbutter or some pb alternative, since 2 tablespoons of that are going to be like ~200cal. You could probly replace the muscle milk with some sort of seeds and have the same outcome for protein, with better results for calories.
Not eating meat is a little tougher but definitely doable. This Black Bean Spaghetti isn't crazy calorie dense, but it's got 25g protein per 2oz's, which is about the best it'll get outside of protein bars/ shakes.
I have no idea how your schedule looks in a day, but you could consider restructuring as best you can to better suit a big eats kinda rhythm. Waking up earlier so you can eat breakfast earlier is super obvious but some people just don't feel up to it. Something I'm a big fan of is putting whatever my cardio training is (running/ HIIT/ etc) first thing in the morning, cause it gets it out of the way for the rest of the day, and it helps kick start your appetite for breakfast.
When it comes down to it, all this extra stuff I'm talking about is just kind of tertiary, and you'll more than likely just get a bigger appetite as time goes on, cause your stomach will expand naturally, so don't stress if you don't want to try any/ all of these.
You should give this a try then https://www.amazon.com/Explore-Asia-Organic-Black-Spaghetti/dp/B0078DU1CY
I love explore asia's brand of edamame pasta and black bean pasta!
I got it at shop and stop. I heard you can get it at Costco too. you can find it here
It’s like 180 calories per serving and 25gms protein!
I've had these before, super good
I would suggest you get some of these types of noodles instead of the curly noodles which have such a meh texture to them. The soy sauce eggs look too good to be paired with that stuff!
Is it this? http://www.amazon.com/Hakubaku-Organic-Ramen-9-5-Ounce-Pack/dp/B007WQCENQ
So $24 for 8 packages of 3 bundles? 24 bucks for 24 bundles, $1/bundle? Sounds good to me
Yes, that's the one. They're good noodles.
Thanks! It's a quick fix to rid us of Hangry attacks lol. They love adding their own soy sauce and personalizing it to their liking.
I did a quick search & I believe this is the brand. I'm sure yippy found find it or something similar at an international market. Their Udon noodles are great in stir fries too.
Edit: Found this on Amazon! Hakubaku Organic Ramen, 9.5-Ounce - Pack of 8
Do you have a Whole Foods near you? They sell Sun Noodle ramen kits. For dry ramen check out the brand Hakubaku: https://www.amazon.com/Hakubaku-Organic-Ramen-9-5-Ounce-Pack/dp/B007WQCENQ/
Hakubaku Organic Ramen, 9.5-Ounce (Pack of 8)
Some chicken stock, a protein, cheap veg...maybe get yourself some miso paste. Easy, not chock full of shit and sodium, and tasty. Buy the box, one pack has three, one part is a meal and some leftovers.
These ramen noodles: http://www.amazon.com/Hakubaku-Organic-Ramen-9-5-Ounce-Pack/dp/B007WQCENQ/ref=sr_1_10?s=grocery&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1452533022&amp;sr=1-10&amp;keywords=ramen
I cook them for 4 minutes, then drain and dump them into a hot cast iron skillet with a bit of olive oil. I add sriracha and a touch of braggs. Mix around a bit. Eat! Bonus points if you have sesame seeds to sprinkle on top.
Maybe a bit late to a response but this one is really good if you like black garlic with your tonkotsu. You could always just not put it on though, the broth is good plain. http://www.amazon.com/Nissin-Demae-Garlic-Instant-Noodles/dp/B00CORJU5S
For more traditional style ramen, I’m a big fan of the Nissin Demae Black Garlic Oil Tonkotsu. Only two season packs (powdered soup stock and the black garlic oil), but nice and rich, and relatively inexpensive. The Nissin Raoh tonkotsu ramen is also really good, if a bit more expensive.
And this: https://www.amazon.com/Sweet-Sue-Chicken-without-Giblets/dp/B00E3AYVA8/ref=pd_sbs_468_4?ie=UTF8&amp;psc=1&amp;refRID=QXZ9D2CF2GWXR3XF7VYD
How is that any good?
not the kind I'm used to seeing, but i guess if your lazy and would rather have it shipped then there ya go.
the ones i've seen are all store brand or a not so well known label. and the cans have been a tad more shallow, and wide.
now that i think of it it could be cheaper to just buy a big can of coffee.
the coffee in those cans is generally not worth making anyway.

Mi-Goreng uber alles!
Having lived in Iraq the cardboard that he used to attach the explosive was of a cheap knock off of Indomie noodles in iraq proof:https://www.amazon.com/Indomie-Mi-Goreng-Instant-Noodle/dp/B00HXIXWKM?th=1 https://i.imgur.com/nosK7o1.jpg the packaging is almost identical when comparing with the pictures of the explosive device. i think its a little odd that a person would kill them selves using noodle cardboard and some sort of explosives.
Prima Taste's Laksa: https://www.amazon.com/Prima-Taste-Laksa-Mian-185g/dp/B00B5NOPT8/
is one of my favorite. It's like curry ramen, so delicious and flavorful!
Also, if you're not feeling broth-y, try Indomie's Mi Goreng https://www.amazon.com/Indomie-Mi-Goreng-Instant-Noodle/dp/B00HXIXWKM/ Another one of of my favorite
These come with separate sauce / oil / seasoning packages and are fucking delicious and about 50cents (or less in bulk) in asian grocery stores around north america. I eat them pretty much every day with an egg some tofu and green onion for breakfast and/or dinner.
There's a purple version that is rare to find that is super spicy and is my favourite...
I’m sure any Asian grocery should have it, possibly the Asian section of a supermarket too. Also ordering it online is always an option too.
This is a box of 30 for $17.
Spicy Tuna with Ramen Noodles.
This is my go-to fast & easy recipe, & is very cheap (well under $2/serve), & uses only pantry ingredients.
Method: Drain the tuna.
Put the noodle brick on the boil, per the directions, over cooking is fine.
Put a little oil in a pan or wok, scorch the tuna a little, add all the flavour/oil sachets, stir thoroughly, & take off the heat. Drain the noodles, add to the pan, return to heat, & stir thoroughly.
Variations: The orange sauce packet is hot chilli, & is hot by Indonesian standards, not Western standards so you may not want to use the whole packet the first time you try it. The default recipe can be a little dry. Adding a tablespoon or two of jarred crushed tomato or salsa along with the flavour packets works.
Even cleaning as you go, you're done in under 10 minutes.
First off, the type of Ramen you get makes a difference. If all I have access to is a standard grocery store, I'll go for the chili, oriental or roast chicken flavor. But most of the time I get my ramen at the asian market where they have way more brands/flavors to chose from than Maruchan. My fav is Indomie Mi Goreng Instant Noodle which has 2 sets of flavor packets in it: one that's the seasoning powder and fried onions, the second is a 3 pack of seasoning oil, sweet soy sauce, and chili sauce.
Second, I typically keep little homemade frozen packages of chopped veggies on hand for throwing into omelets or ramen, so I'll usually add that and a soft boiled egg. Ramen is mostly a soft boiled egg delivery device for me.
The noodles came with a chili sauce
This is an Indonesian Ramen brand and I’ve loved every flavor I’ve tried so far. They’re way better than the usual Nissin ramen. The Mi Goreng line is actually supposed to be prepared similar to chow mein, like cooking and frying the noodles in spices provided but I’ve found luck making it normally as well.

Depends on your standards, really.
These are my favorite ramen noodles. Perhaps not the healthiest, but they're delicious
