The Fit Male Chef: Man Pan Plan
If you want to eat healthy, you must eat at home. No Hassle Low Calorie Breakfast/Snacks next time you are in Hurry.
Living away from the family for education & then job has taught me a lot of things, one of which is cooking. In this era where time is the money you just can’t make much for household chores. However, if Fitness is one thing you live by, Food stands at pivotal position in your mind. And with limited experience kitchen may seem like an intimidating beast.
Generally, for Men the best recipes are the ones that get us out of the kitchen as fast as possible. And most of the time the go-grab menu seems to fall short in taste (or not even worthy of eating) when we cook it. If you are single or living away from your family here are few man-friendly recipes these that will help you abstain from chips and salsa the millennial bachelor labelled gourmet food. These easy to cook recipes shall take about 15 minutes and get you in and out of kitchen as fast as possible. The meals can be customized as per taste.
Before you start Cooking: –
- Keep the vegetables stocked. Uncut if you can make those extra 5 minutes to slice it, sliced if you can’t be bothered to cut it and can fill regular stocks of the same.
- Leftovers are an important part of the gourmet meal for bachelors. Refrigerate the leftovers as they are a great substitute for vegetables.
- Health Food and Cupcakes/Pancakes are opposite side of the same coin.
- The key too cooking eggs in microwave is time. It is generally cooked for 1.30 minutes however you might seriously have a look at it first time to avoid bursting eggs inside microwave. Eggs white puff up high over the lid height and deflate right away. Depending on your micro do a test run at first to check the ideal vessel height to avoid a burst.
Microwave scrambled eggs
Add eggs and a little Milk into a bowl (complete Egg/Egg white individual choice) beat it for a minute and microwave it for 45 seconds.
Open the microwave and see if the contents are set, stir a little and then reheat for 30 seconds.
THE FOOD IS READY.

This is a little time-consuming recipe and might make you wait a little.
Hard Boil eggs and remove the shells.
Slice or Chop or shred vegetables as per your choice. The vegetable mix can be wide depending on availability.
Wash the veggies and add a little salt and pepper to it.
Cube the eggs and add to the vegetable mixture. Toss up slightly to mix the ingredients.
Slice off cucumbers into small circular slices.
Make sure to remove Cucumber bitterness by removing half an inch from both Stem and Blossom ends. Place the cut piece back and rub the flat ends.
My favorite is Ricotta cheese inside the bread.
Place cucumber slices over ricotta cheese.
