A to Q1: Yes

A to Q2: Yes.

You'll save a bunch of money by cooking your food yourself and you'll most likely eat healthier too.

No question OP, learn to cook! Octo and I are both great chefs! Best thing is when you leave the canned foods and nuke dinners behind, you know what you're eating.

Oh and fuck recipes as literal answers to you lack of cooking skills. Trial and error man, trial and error.

You have to start somewhere and I suggest something simple like muffled duck with sautéd truffles on a bed of freshly steamed artichokes with a twist of lime.

Hey OP, why don't you just let us know what you would like to cook and we'll tell you how to do it. Or at least you'd have a bunch of suggestions. chuckle.gif

Just found out yesterday that I have something called Graves disease. I read that people who have Graves must follow the Paleo-diet. Is that a dinosaur and caveman diet? wtf2.gif

I need caveman recipes. chuckle.gif

Oh man did you come to the right place or what. Not only will we give you caveman recipes, but also mess up your mind and make you gay.

No j/k, both me and JayRodney and also Yankees are on paleo diets so whatever you want to ask, feel free.

I've been on it for about two years, never felt better. Got rid of a nasty candida infection in the process as well.

You don't have to go all gourmet either for basic cooking.

I didn't really feel like doing anything fancy tonight so I put a pack of chicken thighs in an electric frying pan and let them cook on low heat. Normally I cook it in some sort of sauce, but just did it plain tonight so I can used it several ways over the next few days.

For dinner I cooked some plain jasmine rice, topped that with (frozen not canned) mixed veggies. Then I sprinkled some curry powder over it. Then I deboned a chicken thigh and chopped it into bite size pieces and put those chunks over the rice and veggies. Then I topped that all off with some duck sauce.

Honey, teriyake, soy sauce, italian dressing, all good to have on hand for dishes like that.

Essentially what you are looking to do is a meat, starch, and a veggie. Unprocessed meats are of course better for you, and frozen veggies are much better quality all the way around, taste and nutrition. I do used canned beans though, like dark red kidney beans which I use fairly often. Once you have your three items, then it's just a matter of experimenting with different sauces and spice blends. I use both store bought and home made, depending on the dish.

Pasta dishes are also very easy, and mostly rely on a variety of sauces that can be easily prepared. Always serve with a nice salad to stay healthy.

I haven't done anything with this blog in years, but here are some recipes I have written down...
