Cooking once a day, What meals taste good cold?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created January 15, 2013 at 9:01 PM

I am thinking of cooking one big meal each morning and eating it throughout the day when I get hungry.

The only thing is, I often don't have access to a microwave.

What are some meals that taste great cold?

If it makes a difference: I eat 600 calories from carbs each day, 1/2 lb of meat, 4 oz fat along with any veges I might add. I'm looking for meals that include all of these things.

Thanks,

J

Not sure why you plan on doing this. But if it's convenience, the solution I use is intermittent fasting (16 hours on, 8 hours off). I break my fast with a large hot meal, and then eat a snack or two later.

I like to eat the brisket with sauerkraut, which can obviously also be eaten cold.

I used to live in Austin. Rudy's brisket is amazing. I believe that is smoked. Though of course, not grass fed.

I keep mine really simple. I put the brisket (fat side up) in the slow cooker, salt and pepper on top, add some water to fill the bottom of the slow cooker, and set it to low for 12 hours. But, if you want to go a little fancier, there is this Martha Stewart recipe that happens to be paleo: http://www.marthastewart.com/344923/slow-cooker-brisket-and-onions

Do you have a recipe you'd recommend? I have an uncle who lives in Texas, and his brisket is amazeballs. Of course, it has store-bought bbq sauce. He'd start it on the grill and then wrap it in foil, and into the oven on low heat, overnight. Sound about right?

Nothing beats a big ass salad with some salmon or chicken from the night before. Or Turkey, or eggs. A can of tuna if you dont have leftovers.

Pretty much any meat. Roasted or smoked chicken or turkey, salmon, roast beef, even ground meats cooked with some onion/veg- totally great cold. Hard-boiled eggs. I'd eat more raw veggies if I had to eat them cold, personally, but I would bet that roasted carrots and sweet potatoes are still pretty great chilled.

Leftover protein with leafy greens and whatever veg you like raw are good cold.

I make scrambled egg muffin-cups that are good straight out of the fridge. I whip up 2 eggs per cup, drop in whatever veg sounds good with eggs and add raw cheddar, then bake until the eggs are set. They are a quick meal on the go.

Meatballs! I recently made a breakfast meatball and it was good straight from the fridge. I can't link it right now, but it's a recipe from www.paleomg.com. I think they are called "maple meatballs."

Salads:

-Tuna

-Chicken

-Sardines

-etc.

i.e. I take a whole rotisserie chicken, chop it, mix it with mayo, celery, minced garlic, parsley, red onions. It tastes better as time passes.

You can heat anything better on the stove or in the oven than in a microwave.

Beef brisket. I'll eat it straight from the fridge. This you can make overnight in a slow cooker. You can make enough to last for many days.

Baked sweet potato. Probably tastes better reheated, but okay cold.
