This might end up being too specific, but perhaps there’s others in my position that might find it helpful.
Inspired by the Fitness & healthy living thread, I want to try and eat better (at home). I don’t always know when I’m going to be home in the evening so generally buy whatever I’m going to have that night on the way home. I’m single and live in a flatshare, so I’m only ever sorting myself out (MrBean.jpg). I’ll usually just end up getting a couple of supermarket pizzas, soups or ready meals that’ll do me for the couple of nights I might be home in the week. It’s getting boring though.
The problem with being in a flatshare is we’ve got hardly any space. There’s loads of articles like this one which basically involve stocking your larder with staples, buying loads of fresh stuff and batch cooking, which isn’t possible when you’ve got no freezer space, or if you’re going to be out for the next 4 nights whilst all your vegetables go bad.
So, I ask of you - are there any good ways of breaking out of the supermarket pizza cycle and cooking nice, one-off meals that won’t involve buying loads of veg that’s going to go bad if you don’t want to have the same Chili/Spaghetti Bolognese 4 nights in a row?
