  1. Rao’s marinara sauce! It’s like double the price of every other brand but THERE IS A REASON! I used to never eat pasta or pizza that I made at home because it just wasn’t good. Turns out the cheap marinara I was buying was the problem. Now Italian is back on the home menu!

  2. Peanut butter toast.

    Eggs. Scrambled, fried. over easy/medium/hard, boiled. Poached is a pain in the ass but you could do that too.

    Pan cooked chicken w/ baked potato.

    Those are some of my go-to’s

  3. things for smoothies… So for me: frozen berries, frozen bananas, protein powder, coconut milk are the basics. that’s my go to “i can’t eat but need to consume calories”

  4. Apples. I slice them and dip them in peanut butter. Great to satisfy both sweet and savory cravings.

    I also enjoy snacking on sliced raw veggies (usually green peppers) dipped in a flavored balsamic vinegar.

  5. Good, REAL hot sauce. Not Tabasco, tapatio, crystal, etc… Some are sweet, some are unique flavors, some are hot as hell. Marie Sharp’s hot sauce company has the best selection of any sauce you might want of every sort.

  6. Pantry staples:

    Rice, good sauces of your preferred cuisine (teriyaki has become my go-to, but soy sauce and other sauces are good options too), beef and chicken broth (good quality if possible), hot sauce and/or chili paste (sriracha), quality peanut butter, baking supplies (flour, sugar), beans.

    Fridge/freezer staples:

    Frozen chicken (breasts or thighs work), fresh fruit (apples, oranges are basic and almost everyone likes them), fresh hummus, carrots, green veggies (broccoli and green beans), protein drinks.

    Note: I am lactose intolerant, so I don’t keep cheese or milk in the fridge. They would be good options for people who can enjoy lactose.

    Easy meals: my go-tos from when I was single were pretty simple:

    * Stir fry – chicken or beef, cook up veggies, serve over rice. Easy.
    * Soup – having a carton of chicken or beef broth on hand makes throwing together a soup pretty easy. It’s fall in the Midwest US, so it’s soup season!
    * Risotto – contrary to what people think, it’s pretty easy to make. Plus risotto is a blank canvas for whatever flavor combinations you like. I prefer a sausage and basil risotto, but pretty much anything works.
    * Hummus – to me, it’s a perfect snack. I eat it with pita and/or veggies.

  7. Cheese and crackers. Throw some smoked summer sausage on there. Put it under the broiler for a couple minutes for the cheese to melt and meat to get hot. Peanut butter and jelly. Milk for cereal. If you got canned chicken and frozen or canned veggies you can make a quick meal out of it with some Ramen noodles.

    Edit. I know that last one isn’t in the fridge but it is quick and easy.

  8. “Cheese quesadilla” just take shredded cheese (fiesta mix), put between 2 tortillas, nuke it for like a minute and a half. Bam, delicious melted cheese on tortillas
