How to eat properly with no fridge or cooking facilities

1 Oct

There may be a number of reasons why you’re not eating properly. It might be a lack of time, or a lack of cooking facilities. Either way, I wanted to come up with a series of evening meals that could ensure you get enough variety in your diet without even employing a fridge, let alone an oven. A microwave or a pan is all I’ve allowed. A shopping trip as outlined below could last you for two weeks if you top up on cherry toms.

  1. Wafer-thin ham or Quorn slices (doesn’t take up much fridge space!), rye bread party rounds or crispbread crackers, chopped carrot or cornichons, followed by a tin of peaches or a juicy orange with an individual UHT soya pot
  2. Flavoured couscous with a tinned chicken korma and a handful of cherry toms.
  3. Ready to eat lentils in pitta bread with feta cheese and semi dried tomatoes in oil (keeps out of the fridge)
  4. Baked beans and sweetcorn on toast followed by a Del Monte fruit salad pot
  5. Boil-in-the bag rice (can even be done in a kettle!!) with tinned red lentil or mulligatawny soup, followed by an individual apple pie and a UHT soya pot
  6. Individual stir-in sauce for pasta

Shopping list:

  • Wafer-thin ham or Quorn slices
  • Rye bread party rounds or rye bread slices or Ryvita (keep in a tin)
  • Carrots (keep somewhere cool) or a jar of cornichons
