@jlmoss Thanks, that's pretty much what I need, some easy ish meals with alot of protein.
If you have trouble cooking eggs start with scrambled ones. You can easily throw in other ingredients to change the flavor.
what types of vegetables are high calorie/low cal?http://www.nutritiondata.com
is your friend.
But over here the meat is in packets with transparent wrap ontop, does that mean it's processed?
Nope. Although some meat is packaged in a modified atmosphere, most wraps are just some meat that got cut and packaged to make shopping quicker. Not that I'm against modified atmosphere anyway. Just telling.
IMO the whole processed VS non processed thing is often blown out of proportions. E.g. legumes come in a tetrapak box, does that make em evil processed food? If you ask me, no. The paleo crowd is especially guilty of doing this, they are so much into their hunter gatherer fantasy, sometimes they make it sound if you haven't killed it or grown it yourself then it isn't healthy. Which is not much practical or even smart.
A clear example of this is dairy. Some of them will insist it's processed food -.-'
It's just going from an extreme to another with no middle ground. Also most authors we read live in the US, and talk in general terms but some things they say are only valid in that part of the world. E.g. some countries in Europe have quite decent cold cuts, they're surely more processed than a steak but still vastly more healthy than microwave dinners, and a convenient way to up your protein intake. But look what they say about them on MDA: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/cold-cuts-primal-paleo
What I do is, wherever there's an ingredient list I read it, and try to use my head. If it has a long list of things which you don't know about, you put it down. If there's only something that you don't know about, you check online and then make your mind up.
