Dreads and Diets
It's all habit. And just not buying junk. If you eat junk regularly, it will be much harder to manage without eating too much. I find that once or twice a year is plenty for me.If you need to cook/make extensive preparations, do it at a time that you are ready and have energy. If you eat lentils when you get home, having to work with herbs, spices and cooking them for 20 minutes you are asking for trouble. Do that crap in the morning, when you get home boil them again and they're ready to be served within 5 minutes (well, unless you eat 2 kg a serving like me, all that water takes awhile to boil).There's plenty of healthy food that doesn't need to be cooked. Some of these are great "in front of the telly/computer" snacks. My personal favorites are sunflower seeds. A buttload of Vitamin E (hard to get in sufficient quantity, extremely healthy) and despite them being rich in fat and cals it's very hard to overfeed on shelled sunflower seeds. Trust me, I tried while bulking. Doesn't work. Deshelling those things with a handful in your mouth even takes a veteran like me a bit of time and doing it every day made my cheeks hurt on the inside and I wasn't able to eat them for awhile. Although it's amazing what I can do with my tongue now.Berries, tomatoes, watermelon, strawberries. Get them out, wash them and you can eat them. Most nuts are also a nice high calorie and basically zero preparation snack. Shelled walnuts are awesome, especially when you reach the point where you can crack 2 of them at a time in each hand. The point where you eat too many of them and your hands hurt too much to even pick up the remote are memorable aswell.I personally don't see the problem with most veggies. Throw them in a pan of water, cook until bubbly and they reach their deepest colour and done. It's literally a 5 minute job. Any Gordon Ramsey stuff you need to do with herbs (including the cursing and screaming) can be done in the morning and it's hardly a big effort anyway when you get handy at it. You could make some herb/spice paste in the weekend that can last months and it's no time at all.I used to get fancy and southern and try to deep fry those veggies (it sure makes them tasty!), but deep frying requires me to use oil I don't trust 100% (it's not like you can dump virgin olive oil in there) and it's a frigging chore. Took me like 20-30 mins total, you get used to the taste anyway. I hate eating veggies au natural, but sometimes you have to do things you don't like because it's the best thing to do. I mean I can make Broccoli taste like pizza, but it's just not worth the effort for me personally, I can deal with the bland taste and save the 10 minutes.And I'm not sure how it's where you live, but here prices for ready to eat junkfood are insanely high. Healthy, fresh, unprocessed food is just not that expensive. It's the candy that's expensive, like cheap junky chocolate that takes 5 cents per bar to make in a factory selling for 2.
