I buy eggs and let them sit in the fridge for a week or 2. After that, they are super easy to peel every time! Farm fresh eggs are much, much more difficult. You just have to think ahead and buy eggs in advanced and make sure no one else in the household eats them.

I make 1 big pot of beans per month (lentils, chick peas, vegetarian chili, etc.) with whatever is in season. Then I freeze them into multiple containers of 1-2 servings. Defrost as necessary.

@ec05 Trader Joe's sells great frozen brown rice. I open up the bag, put some in a bowl, mix in some frozen veggies, seasoning, and a bit of butter/oil then microwave according to directions. Perfect side dish every time.

I have cooked just for 1 for quite sometime. If I make too much of something, I will normally freeze it into double serving containers OR invite over friends! Everyone loves free homecooked meals!

Homemade pasta? Or if you're willing to invest in a kit, try brewing beer! It won't be ready for a few more weeks, but it's a lot of fun.

I am right there with you! When I make a big batch of something, I will freeze it into 2 or 3 smaller containers so that I only defrost 1-2 servings at a time. That way I don't get tired of something too soon.

If I had that many restrictions, I would never show up empty handed. I usually prefer to eat things that are really healthy. I always bring some sort of satisfying, super healthy app/side dish to anyone's house because 1) you should never show up empty handed and 2) I know that I will have something that can be the bulk of my plate that night if there are few options available.

i agree with Emma of the Barberry. You should ask them. Tell them you're having trouble narrowing down some options and would like to bounce ideas around about what to make to satisfy.
