>>500217 the bob evans mashed taters are fuckin' dope
i didn't really know how to eat until i stepped out of my comfort zone and tried new things so i have been where you are ton but i was there years ago you're a little old for this
I think I have a general repulsion from being in the kitchen because I don't want to be caught in the kitchen. The kitchen always needs cleaning and being found in it means having to spend whatever time I currently have to doing so.
a real simple easy cheap way to go around is to make some dough just water+flours+bit salt then bake that on a skillet with bit of butter/oil now you have bread then if you have some veggies, especially say olives and sundried tomatos, but anything you think go well together works prepare them if need, ie boil then toss them all in a container and blitz them into a paste then spread paste on bread and eat delish pesto style spread with self made bread easy, simple and doesn't take much time
>>500227 four years ago I had a cute girl making me food tbh
>>500233 But one task keeps me from doing the other. So they are unfortunately linked together. If only people cleaned after they cooked And not left the entire area in a raging mess as they left the house
>>500235 I cooked occasionally but it wasn't as good usually. Either way I either usually can't be bothered or am willing to eat things to stay alive rather than strictly // preference of taste
>>500223 I enjoy the creative process of making food, or well, the creating process. But I don't think I could willfully isolate myself while making the food to enter that relaxation mindset. When I'm cooking fodo -food in the kitchen I'm constantly dancing between the kitchen and my room to do things.
I started helping in the kitchen when i was like 10 and by the time I was 14 I could easily make a hearthy meal for myself and have been doing that since then
My heart rate does go anywhere near 200 I briefly peaked at 170 for 5 minutes. During fast walking up hills it's usually 145.
>>500236 >not cleaning while you cook and then getting everyone to help finish the cleanup after dinner
>>500238 i dont understand at all and guess i never will don't you ever want to release from that leash that draws you back to doing other things, separating your focus? i just take the 20 or 30 minutes to cook, MAYBE go for a cigarette on the back porch while it's at an idle point, and relish in not being overstimulated for a small portion of my day and also looking forward to the tasty meal
>>500241 The only time cleaning happens midway through cooking is if I make the mistake of letting people know that I'm awake.
>>500237 you got comfortable and decided not to improve anymore and now you're comfortable wasting money and living with your mom so you still don't want to improve cooking is basic skill you have the diet of a manchild you are better than this
Eating homemade stuff like stews is really satisfying. I had lot of pride in making potato and veg stews.
potato and vag stew
mash and bang stew
>>500242 I don't think I ever really feel overstimulated in the way you might be. If anything I don't really want to be isolated . Maybe it's a fascination, maybe it's an addiction, but I really like being constantly involved in something. If the food doesn't need my incessant input, I'm compelled to go find something else that does.
>>500250 I always love it when I make real tasty mashed veggie soup
>>500248 when you're too tired to cook every single day, that's Not Good and indicative of a very big problem one of the ways to address that problem is to cook even if you don't feel like it
wow you sound like one of those people telling me that I need to draw in order to get better at drawing who the FUCK are you
im an incredibly disfunction person that somehow is more effective than a lot of people that are far more capable than me
Talesof !NuKeSlvmWETN !PcAPtAiNJo
>>500255 Or simply make food so you can cook every odd day
>>500253 if you made friends with the food, you might not feel isolated radishes are my best friend
>>500256 I mean that is one of the crucial building blocks to getting better at drawing.
>>500257 as a function person, you get used to that like seeing some guy with one left arm be one of the best artists you've ever seen.
yeah being functional makes you weak because your only source of discomfort is your own self-disappointment functional people are so privileged im so jealous of functional people people who aren't broken at a fundamental level and waste their potential really bother me i have to struggle every day to be able to do the things that help me feel like i shouldn't kill myself nearly everything around me is painful to me i have to push myself to the point of self-harm so i can continue to have a will to live
and there are all these people without problems like that who do nothing and don't even try because their lives are so comfortable
>>500253 tbh i feel like we're on the same page somewhat there, but i feel like being invested in the cooking is the most involved action i can do sometimes as in, the alternatives are lacking in involvement i can sit and press alt+D, type D, press enter, ctrl+w, ctrl+t, alt+D, T for twitter, nothing new, close and it bores at my mind so i do something to pacify my impulses for a bit cooking, for me, is super involved because you can toast something, boil water, add spices, cook, mix a drink, even take pictures for instagram if you feel like it
I had a faint admiration for the people around me that work overtime like every week in my transit section but then it's like 60% of them are paying child support And have so many things to be angry about
ToN's diet is similar to mind out here. If I could go out shopping it would better. I try to eat in moderation.
I have chicken kievs, pizza, noodles, bread, honeyed ham and sweet potato. I try to have some honeyed ham with pitta bread. and chicken kiev for dinner.
>>500304 I don't have breasts Although I ddid briefly take a medicine that had gynomastica as a side effect. There was a class action suit aboit it too
>>500302 if i'm doing a planned meal like something with fresh meats i might spend five bucks on the meat for that night but between eggs at two bucks a dozen, pasta at .50 cents per two-person meal, sausages at 1.50 per half pound, mushrooms at about 20 cents a serving, bread being basically free, and some cheese which is somewhat expensive, it averages out really low >>500306 i am pretty sure you do have breasts all people who have torsos do
Also whenever I cook something, I end up eating it whenever. Saving it for work is difficult.
