For me, fixing meals is all about preparation and variety.

if that's your motivation, my list won't help much, as i eat a lot of convenience foods. but one of my "quick fixes" involves "real food." i often just nuke veggies in the microwave and eat them with salt and sometimes a little margarine or olive oil. it's not gourmet, but some nuked broccoli, kale, or brussel sprouts taste pretty good, are healthy, and most importantly, are very quick to make.

I'm on the opposite side from Jen on this where I make most of my stuff from scratch so I'm not sure if my list will help you either.

Please tell me the difference between steel cut oats and regular? I have been wondering for a while!

Steel cut oats are much chewier and seem to be more satisfying to my palate.

Steel cut is barely processed and has a lower glycemic value than regular (esp. instant) so your blood sugar doesn't go up as much.

This time of year, soup is my fall back.
