Whats Your 'go-To' Meal

Recommended Posts

Breakfast for dinner works for me...kinda like an emergency meal as I always have the ingredients on hand. If I don't get my act together soon, that may be dinner tonight. :D

Or I pull something out of my stash in the freezer (homemade soups, chili, etc.)

scrambled eggs or an omlette with veggies. Still a little bit of prep, but I love it.

Those are my two, also - especially with avocado in the omelette. I also do a can of sardines mashed on toast if I'm desperate, although King Oscar has started packing theirs in soy bean oil and I am fast going off Brunswick (they are getting bigger and BIGGER ). The last can had only three sardines in it :o and tasted yuck.

Either a Kinnickinnick pizza, I always keep a box of shells, Hormel pepperoni and a sheet of frozen sauce on hand or I go with a Jimmy Dean Skillet which has potatoes, green and red peppers, onions and sausage. You just brown it and add a egg. I like those cause one package makes me at least 4 or 5 meals so it's cheap, tasty and quick.

I usually have homemade stuff in the freezer but if that doesn't look good I make tuna salad and have it with rice cakes or gluten-free bread and some veggies.

I fry some chunks of ham with some onions and garlic powder and sliced olives. Then add a can of black beans or other beans and salt and pepper. Pretty quick and easy too.

That's what I'm eating right now (the Jimmy D Skillet with sausage) plus I added some extra green/yellow/red pepper/onion stir fry veggies, fresh mushrooms, bacon bits and two eggs. Yum!

A tuna-salad sandwich is great when I'm rushing off to work. Otherwise eggs are always at the top of the list. I either fry them up for a sandwich or scramble them and add whatever I have around-- veggies, meat. After a few days of recovery eating (for me that's rice, rice cakes, apple sauce, bread and bananas) I'm usually ready for a heavier, more filling breakfast so I prep the eggs like an omellette (sans cheese) and fold it around some sticky rice. It took a few tries to get the timing down with the dorm stove and microwave, but it usually turns out pretty well. Then again, I'm not too picky after a few days of nothing but salted white rice in its various forms.

I had a crazy week and woke up and realized I had nothing prepared. No left overs at all which is usually my "go to." So I had eggs for breakfast, french toast with my daughter's Udi's bread for lunch. Often I'll have tuna with mayo, peas and dill weed with glutino crackers as a very fast meal. I know this can't last because I am realizing the next level in my healing is going grain free, which will be a whole new level of commitment.

I sent my husband to the store this afternoon and now every dish in my kitchen is dirty from preparing food for the next few days so I'm good to go. I am mostly here to avoid washing every dish in the kitchen...

Udi's French toast is at the top of my list at home (it's a nightmare on the uneven dorm burner). I usually sandwich a banana between 2 or 3 slices. Sometimes I'll heat up some the the Mott's Natural applesauce with extra cinnamon and spread it over the bread. It soaks in a little when warm-- no need for syrup.

Either pancakes and sausage or a skillet dinner. I saute an onion, green pepper, and crumbled Jimmy Dean sausage (or any leftover meat I might have) in some olive oil until soft, add peeled and diced potatoes and cook till the potatoes are done and the bottom is crispy. Add shredded cheddar cheese at the end to melt over the top. (I pretty much always have these ingredients in the house)

Slices of polenta from a tube, covered in tomato sauce and maybe with some cheese on top. If no cheese then pumpkin seeds or some nuts on the side for protein.

Canned chicken with rice or pasta.

Pasta with red sauce, maybe with some cooked ground beef that I keep in the freezer.

Frozen cooked hamburger patty with some kind of starch. Maybe frozen potatoes or some chips. Raw veggies.

Instant mashed potatoes made with just water, salt, pepper and Nucoa topped with some kind of meat and gravy. Either cooked ground beef or canned chicken or turkey. If beef, I add chopped onion, celery and parsley. Otherwise just parsley.

Chicken soup made with canned chicken, celery, onion, carrots, sometimes peppers, canned or boxed broth and rice or pasta.

Ian's chicken nuggets with baby carrots. Or Ian's kid's meal.

Soft tacos.

Spanish rice.

Turkey wrap. gluten-free Teff wrap stuffed with shredded lettuce and sliced turkey.

Nachos.

Cottage cheese and canned pears.

Taco salad.

Large tomato stuffed with tuna or chicken salad or cottage cheese. Egg salad is also good but I can't have eggs.

Instant mashed potatoes with onion, cheddar cheese and bacon bits.

Hot dog slit lengthwise but not all the way through, stuffed with mashed potatoes and a sprinkle of cheese. Nuke it till the cheese melts.

Little Smokies heated through in gluten-free BBQ sauce, Spud Puppies (or Tater Tots) and baby carrots.

I make soups on the weekend . I place them in individual containers and freeze so I have something in a hurry/spur of the moment . I add a salad and it's dinner.

I know it doesnt sound exciting, but where I am with food right now knowing I have something I can eat and that is safe is IMPORTANT

I just tried this tonight and even my husband (who is non-celiac) thought it was GREAT. Saute' some onion and bell pepper, a little garlic and spices (we are from LA - Louisiana, not Los Angeles - we like it spicy) and add some Boar's Head Roast Beef, heat it up and top with Swiss Cheese. Hubby puts it on French Bread, I eat it as is with some Blue Diamond crackers.. Quick and Easy. Yum

Other things - Hebrew National wieners with Bush's baked beans and rice. Breakfast for dinner, and yes, I am from the south, and make "breakfast in a bowl" with grits, bacon, eggs and cheese . Omelet with cheese, onions, salsa, jalapenos and whatever else is in my fridge that is gluten-free. Yogurt with blueberries, gluten-free granola and honey. Hamburger patty with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ and Idahoan mashed potatoes (check - there are some gluten-free varieties and some not - they DO specify on bag). Orelle Rickenbacker (or however you spell it) popcorn in a pinch. Progresso french onion soup using gluten-free bread as a crouton and cheese. A baked potato stuffed with yummy gluten-free leftovers (broccoli, onions, brisket, cheese, sour cream, bacon, whatever leftovers I have that is gluten-free). Us cajuns, we take whatever is left over, add some spices, and can make a gluten-free meal out of it! For veggies, those "steamer bags" are really good - read the label and make sure there are no "natural and artificial flavorings". Raw carrots, celery, other veggies and any type of fruit and cheeses are good. Sometimes I just eat tomatoes, carrots, celery, apples, peaches pears and several different cheeses.

I am now officially STARVING! Hummm ... what is in the frig?

I forgot sweet potatoes in the nuker for 10 minutes. Split them in half after cooking and drizzle on a little olive oil then sugar and cinnamon.

Or wraps made with brown rice tortillas and some kind of pre-cooked meat, chicken, turkey or hamburger usually. Run water over both sides of the brown rice wraps before microwaving so they are soft enough to fold. A little soy-free mayo, greens, some salt and pepper and you are all set. Or add a fried egg also. Lately I've been adding some Daiya faux cheese. Quick and easy.

I use Ojai Cook's Lemonaise. It's made with canola oil. A little tangier than the usual commercial mayo which means you can use less and get more flavor. I used it on my obligatory Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches... Just not the same without the mayo.

Omg, I've been ignoring this thread for days because I thought it said what's the meal we cook when we WANT to be extravagant! :lol: :lol: :lol: I hate to cook, so that's why I've been avoiding it. Then I opened the thread finally just now and when I saw omelets, or pull-something-out-of-the-freezer meals I thought wait a minute.... :rolleyes:

lol.. anyway, mine would be bacon and eggs, or sharp cheddar on a corn tortilla toasted in the toaster oven, or tuna, or... sometimes just chips and hummus. ;)

Since I am now free of so much, mine is kinda boring for now. I eat a lot of veggies, fish/shrimp with fresh dill and lemon. Chicken with fresh herbs/lemon. Grapes are my go to snack, sometimes mangos. I try to cook enough for two meals. Boiled eggs if I eat breakfast, I'm really thankful I can still eat eggs!

Glad you liked it :D

When I do it with leftover chicken or pork, sometimes I'll leave off the cheese and throw in a chopped apple along with the potatoes. Gives it a nice flavor.

I use Hellman's Canola mayo. No soy oil. It's quite good. I have tried some other brands but they tasted weird to me.

If you're looking for a soy free cooking spray (also hard to find) check out Pam for Grilling. I swear I read 20 cans of spray before reading about this one on the board.

Soy free tuna can be found at Trader Joe's.

My go to meals are:

- tuna on crackers or Udi's bread. I like the Schar table crackers since they remind me of ritz or club crackers.

- omelette made with lactose free yogurt cheese, found at Trader Joe's, with tater tots

- soup from my freezer. I make big batches of soup and then freeze individual containers.

- Amy's mac n cheese (the gluten-free and dairy/soy free version made with Daiya)

- rice noodles with frozen veggies and some chicken stock and lemon

- Chipotle, for when I really don't want to cook!
