    Gordon Ramsay will serve Hitler's assorted bodyparts in a masterful 7 course meal. Hors d'Oeurve: Adolf Hitler balls deep fried and served with an Adolf Hitler blue-eye (even though he had brown...) jelly chutney. Soup: Adolf Hitler bone marrow soup. "Fish" Dish: Sashimi cuts of Adolf Hitler flesh. Meat Dish: Adolf Hitler rump, chargrilled to medium rare, served with Adolf Hitler finger and toe fries. Main Course: Adolf Hitler thigh drumsticks, served on-the-bone with an Adolf Hitler blood ketchup. Salad: Adolf Hitler shredded arms salad with assorted dried organs (to make them small enough to eat in one bite) with an assortment of classic salad veggies. (lettuce leaf, diced peppers, cucumber and red onion with a wholegrain mustard and honey vinaigrette.) Dessert: Adolf Hitler ripple ice cream, prepared with all the remaining offcuts blended into a coulis and mixed with vanilla ice cream. Drink: Adolf Hitler blood wine, aged 51 years.

    Not OP, but [chef Gordon Ramsay has a blender broccoli soup recipe.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KR44a_5v_A) Adding a wedge or two of laughing cow cheese instead of the goat cheese he uses is pretty tasty, or you can just eat it plain. You can use the same technique he outlines to make carrot soup, or whatever you think would work boiled and souped.

    Look up Gordon Ramsay's broccoli soup. I leave out the garnish and eats loads of it.

    How the *HELL* has Gordon Ramsay's daughter never had raw broccoli? I find that extremely hard to believe.

  • Sophia Sawayn Reply

    Yum yum yum! I remember that fine cooking used to do a "creamless creamed soup" using rice. I need to get that and see how those point out. A creamed broccoli soup is amazing during the winter. (Of course Gordon Ramsey's broccoli soup is 0 points without garnishes)

    I've noticed as a vegetarian, soups are a saving grace. Gordon Ramsey has a broccoli soup which is just cooked broccoli, water and salt, blended. If you wanted to add some Parmesan or goat cheese for a more varied flavor it makes a great low calorie food. Lentil and sweet potato stew, black bean Mexican soup. Carrot and coriander soup really is just soup stock, carrots and coriander (cilantro), just blended together and it's delicious. You can also add soft tofu or coconut milk to a blended soup for a creamier texture or some added protein. Soups are really the types of thing where you play around with it to find out what you like the best. You can find a few of the recipes I mentioned on budget bytes and mentioned frequently on other health food subreddits.

    I remember watching Gordon Ramsey making a broccoli soup on youtube and thinking ''Holy shit thats wayyy too much salt!'' Then when I actually made it I did it exactly like he did and it was one of the best soups I have ever made. I would have never thought that adding the right ammount of salt would turn water and broccoli into something so tasty. My girlfriend still thinks im insane when she sees me season my food even if she likes everything I make.

    Asian noodles 1 serving -A portion of spaghetti with the end the same size of a quarter -2 tsp of soy sauce -3 chopped cloves of garlic - 1 1/2 tbsp of vegetable oil -3 tsp white vinegar -1 tsp of sugar (optional) -veggies of your choice, recommended: broccoli, red pepper, onion, green onion, mushrooms, carrots, tomato Tools: one medium sized pot, one medium sized skillet, colander, spatula or spoon 1. Heat pan to medium heat 2. Boil water for spaghetti, preparing to cook it by the package instruction 2. Hover hand over pan, once it's fairly hot to the touch add chopped garlic 3. Add vegetables and salt the veggies A. To speed up cooking time, I add water, but usually once the veggies have a nice crisp to them or caramelization in some cases 4. Once veggies and spaghetti are cooked, combine into pot, take off stove, add the rest of ingredients Chicken parm 1. To make the best pasta bed for your parm, I recommend looking at Gordon Ramsay' short how to pasta video: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UYhKDweME3A Ingredients for parm for 2 chicken breasts: -1 chicken breast -8 tsp salt -1/4 cup of flour -6 tsp garlic powder -6 tsp black pepper -half jar spaghetti sauce -two eggs, beaten, mixed with 3 tbsp of water (feel free to eyeball this) -3/4 cup of breadcrumbs -2 slices provolone -2 tbsp of Parmesan -4 cloves of garlic (optional) Tools: Skillet Baking dish Spatula Tongs To begin, preheat oven to 350, then: 1. tenderize the chicken into flat pieces only a half inch in thickness or cut into half inch thick pieces 2. Mix flour and half the spices into one bowl 3. Beat eggs and add water to them and salt the mixture into second bowl 4. Mix breadcrumbs and the other half of the spices into third bowl 5. Chop garlic cloves 6. Heat skillet to medium and once it is hot to the feel, add chopped garlic 7. Dip chicken breasts in each mixture, coating thoroughly, in the order of flour, egg wash, and bread crumbs 8. Add dipped chicken breasts to skillet with garlic and cook until browned, flipping after 4 or so minutes on each side 9. Move breasts to a baking dish 10. Cover breasts with sauce 11. Add provolone on top with Parmesan to each breast 12. Bake for 12 minutes and serve on top of spaghetti, add fresh basil or parsley for added taste! Let me know what you think, I have a ton more considering I'm a broke college student myself! Mainly I just sautée veggies with garlic and then add soy sauce everyday with a side of quinoa or rice. It's the cheapest, most cost effective way of eating that works for me! Add some edamame, tofu, or a fried egg for extra protein. I'll occasionally make beef Wellington or something similar when I feel like it! Gordon Ramsay has a great recipe for that, and a great number of other recipes that college students can use. Another pro tip, chop your veggies and prep your food at the beginning of the week, so during the week you can just throw things in a pan and not have to worry about cleaning a cutting board or extra bowls! Most of my meals only take <10 minutes cooking time and <2 minutes cleaning time. Let me know if you want more recipes or tips!

    My suggestion is to keep it simple. Casseroles, quiches, soups, all these will be easy ways to prepare a lot of food in advance. But you don't even need to make it that complicated. Look up the Whole30 meal template and build your meals that way. All you need for a good Whole30 is meat, veggies, and fats. You don't need to come up with any fancy dishes, or even cook during the week. I do almost all my meal prep on Saturdays and Sundays and then during the week I just heat up food and eat it. For example, this past week: Saturday: * chopped 6 cups of broccoli and portioned into bags (~5 minutes) * chopped 7 bell peppers and portioned into bags (~5 minutes) * you can roast these veggies if you want, but I just eat them raw. * boiled a dozen eggs (~15 minutes, mostly hands-off) * marinated 2 pounds of chicken in lemon juice and apple cider vinegar for 30+ minutes, drizzled with olive oil, salt, pepper, bake @ 400 for about 40 minutes. * cook up some compliant sausages (~10 minutes) Sunday * make a batch of veggie soup (~30 minutes, mostly hands off). The Whole30 website has some good recipes for soups; I'm loving the parsnip/apple soup for breakfasts right now. * Roast sweet potatoes and carrots (~30-40 minutes, mostly hands off) So in just about 2 hours over the week, I prepare almost enough food for the entire week. I'll also add fruits here and there that I chop when I eat them, rather than in advance. I'll also mix in some leafy greens to most of my meals for the extra nutrients. I'll add a Wholly guacamole mini cup (regular avocados obviously are fine but I can never get them at the correct ripeness), or almonds, or some ghee, or some compliant dressing for my fats at each meal. Also -- I used to *need* snacks a few times a day or I would get unbearably hungry. I'm on day 28 of my Whole30 now and I haven't needed to snack since I started. For me it was an issue with blood sugar that made me crave snacks. Maybe it will help you too :)

    Hash. Love my potatoes, egg, veggies and bacon/sausage. Hearty. Another one I ripped from Gordon Ramsay is a miso broth based noodle soup with poached eggs.

    [Gordon Ramsay's broccoli soup](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KR44a_5v_A) is a favorite of mine. Simple, fast and healthy.

  • Cedrick Funk Reply

    Soups are really easy. I'm a huge fan of Gordon Ramsay cooking and the main theme of his recipes seem to be fresh foods, keeping it simple, and letting foods taste as they should. Here's a few of my favorite recipes on youtube: [Swede and cardamon soup](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW2wSUJXBa0) (swede is also known as rutabaga) [Broccoli soup](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KR44a_5v_A) (you can skip the cheese and walnuts if you'd like) [Spiced sweetcorn soup](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJwhmwjfn3s) And then there's these that are my favorite to make: [Crab Rangoons/Wontons](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cajdSGcRpP4) (I like using imitation crab as I think it tastes better. Mine includes cream cheese, green onions finely chopped, lots of teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, garlic powder, and a dash of Worcestershire sauce). [Soft pretzel bites](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXUzDnbBnqw) (these actually take a lot of work to make, but are worth it) [Cheesecake stuffed strawberries](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wfDjBcoHXI) (not a meal but still good) [Sticky pork ribs](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgOBAWbkq5Q) (it takes a while to make, but the taste and smell is to die for) [How to make homemade pizza from scratch](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAOgl-Sv09U) And my favorite: Sushi!!! (lots of work but awesome payoff) [How to cook sushi rice in a pot](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TgG97P4P_Y) [How to roll sushi rolls](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfNhqawvSr8) [How to cut sushi rolls](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9211fic0Kc) [How to cook a sushi dinner party](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_hZvF2-RKs)

    I just use the Gordon Ramsay broccoli soup recipe and top it with cheddar. So few cals and I think the taste of the cheese gets lost if you blend it up with the broccoli. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KR44a_5v_A

    The cafeteria was dark and moist. Calvin knew not why, or what he was doing here, but very quickly he soon came to learn about it. "Stand up, Calvin," boomed a thunderous voice from somewhere in the dark. Calvin did so. Before him were two portly men, chefs that wore their greasy aprons and hats, leering down at him. Calvin looked around, and where there had once been rows and rows of empty tables and round plastic stools there sat a full five hundred people staring at him. All silent, unblinking, and all a strange shade of green. He looked back in front. The chef to his left picked up a fork and pointed it at Calvin. "You have been brought here to answer for the most *horrific* of crimes." A collective shudder ran around the cafeteria. "A crime so monstrous, a successful case has only been brought once, in the history of this court. You have been accused of..." Calvin held his breath. "...first degree burger *desecration*." Everyone around gasped. "How do you plead?" the judge continued. Calvin, however, started to chuckle softly, then stopped when he realised how guilty he sounded. "I plead not guilty. I want a lawyer!" "You could have had one," the chef sneered back. "Under Food law, the lawyer has to be someone you know who can vouch for your character. Unfortunately, your supervisor - ah - he claims to not know you as anything other than a criminally insane first-class burger-burning dolt. As such, you may choose to represent yourself, or -" "I'll represent myself, thanks," Calvin said, standing up a little straighter. "Very well," the chef-judge said. "Prosecutor! Bring in the first witness." A silence descended back on the cafeteria. The prosecutor, wearing a chestplate of a frying pan and shows of pot lids, stepped forward from the gloom. Calvin had to suppress another chuckle at the man's odd appearance. But whatever laughter there was died when Calvin saw the witness. "You?" Calvin blurted. "How could you-" "SILENCE!" the chef roared. "What is your name and profession?" he asked. The witness, a tall, older man with balding hair and wire-rimmed glasses, nodded in respect. "I am Alan Storrar. I am a regular customer at that - at that godawful burger place." The prosecutor took over. "Could you describe to the food court what you tasted?" Alan nodded, looking at anywhere but Calvin. "I tasted that burger - oh, it was burnt so badly, and the meat so rotten and godawful the spirit of Gordon Ramsay is still screaming -" The entire court winced. Calvin shot a quick glance over to the jury, twelve men and women in Masterchef-style clothing, and he had to shudder. There was nothing but *guilty* written there. "And who was it that did this?" Alan looked away, as if he couldn't bear to say so, then pointed one crooked finger at Calvin. "It was HIM, your honour! He destroyed the good name of food - he committed unspeakable crimes against food." "Very well," the judge said. "The witness may be recused. Now if the prosecutor could-" "Wait a minute," Calvin interrupted. "Don't I get to cross examine the witness-" "You get nothing, accused!" the chefs roared back. "Now sit still and hear the charges brought against you." "But I have no rights here!" Calvin blurted out. "You got *that* right," the judge said, smiling. "Alright, let's move on with calling the next witness, then we can send this pathetic idiot to the broccoli mines-" Calvin stared at the judges so hard they stopped. "I have no rights," he repeated. "Am I not now still innocent?" *Was this some crazy ass dream?* "What about...everything? All the evidence? Presumption of innocence?" "You think this is like one of your stupid court shows, accused?" the prosecutor sneered. "This isn't anything like it. In here we do not discriminate according to lettuce size or how many five star reviews you have. You are all equally guilty!" "No way," Calvin said, desperately trying to think of a way out. He'd seen the trick once. Competition. Chefs. Game shows. *TV series...* A lightbulb flashed on. "I wish to confess," Calvin said. Momentarily, the prosecutor seemed stunned. "You wish to confess?" "Nah, just joking," Calvin said, laughing. "I just wanted to get your attention. But now that I have it, I'll tell you high-and-mighties one thing - I did not desecrate that burger. It was the most lovely shade of brown you have ever seen. And I know I'll get no justice here - so I will let the High Chefs decide my fate." Calvin lowered his voice, to where the entire cafeteria was listening in, and said: "I demand a trial by food-fight." --- For more stories like this check out /r/KCcracker :D

    Make a list of the healthy food he loves to eat. Make a list of food you love to eat. Commit to eating the healthy ones 3 times more than the unhealthy ones. Commit to trying a vegetable/fruit that's healthy but you've never tried before. Meal prep your snacks fruits/veggies/nuts/cheese. Meal prep your breakfast. Vegetables you hate, convert them into soups. Have simple vegetable soups with no cream. (Look up Gordon Ramsey broccoli soup in YouTube). Once you've mastered these, move on to lunch and dinner. Make a low calorie dessert that you both love. In small quantity. If you were good all week you can replace one of the snacks with the dessert. This'll be the prize both of you compete for. Label your boxes with the calories on top of the box. He can do the calculation as he picks the box. Make 100 calorie snack bags. Learn to make your own bread. It'll be cheaper and you'll have more control on the calories and you'll make only what you need for the week. So you don't have to think of finishing bread before it goes bad. (You don't always need bread maker, there are self rising ones.) Get rid of large plates and get small size plates. Go for walks together, if your bonding time is watching TV change it to walking or taking photography. Plan to go to museums, excellent place to walk all day and not realize how much walking was done.

    It's creamy spreadable little wedges in different varieties. They have swiss, white cheddar, pepper jack, mozzarella... You can spread the mozzarella onto tomato slices and sprinkle it with herbs to help tackle a pizza craving. I spread a wedge of pepper jack onto a small tortilla and eat it with beans or peppers for cheesy taco cravings. The folks on /r/1200isplenty make Gordon Ramsey's broccoli soup (it's literally just steamed broccoli and water put in a blender) and stir a bit of laughing cow cheddar into it for "broccoli cheddar" soup that's really tasty and low calorie :) I've found it at Meijer, Giant Eagle, Kroger, and Target. Some stores have more varieties than others.

    Genius. I just want to add for the skeptics that even [Chef Gordon Ramsey considers blended broccoli and water to be soup.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KR44a_5v_A) You don't have to garnish it the way he does or add goat cheese (for those who do want that, Aldi is the best place to get it), but if you *do* want cheaper cheese, the folks over at /r/1200isplenty recommended tossing in a wedge of laughing cow white cheddar. I just slurp mine plain :)

    So when I was in college I tried to cook a lot. Like you I made a lot of stir fry. I'd use chicken and frozen veggies usually but it was always soggy and crappy. This is a recipe video from Gordon Ramsay. I know he has a reputation, but he's actually got a ton of these videos that are really simple and beginner friendly. I'd really recommend you try this stir fry, super healthy, super cheap, and only a few ingredients. The chicken and broccoli stay delicious and crispy. I use rice instead of noodles. http://youtu.be/mCknnSo6djI You say you can't cook, but I guarantee you can make this and it will be better than any stir fry you've made before (and twice as simple). He has a bunch more of these kinds of videos and they go from really simply to super fancy.

    I've been eating boiled chicken and broccoli every day for the last 10 years. Recently I started seasoning with a little bit of salt. I feel like Gordon Ramsay now every time I cook

    * Gordon Ramsay's broccoli and cheese soup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KR44a_5v_A * bacon and eggs * high quality sausages (97%) and veggies * tofu taco bowl: just put some peppers, mushrooms, broccoli into a pan, stir fry, add some taco seasoning and then some firm tofu. can even add in a ton of spinach to wilt down too. this cooks super quick. then serve with avocado and cheese. * Make a batch of curry (usually coconut milk based), portion out and store in the fridge for a few days lunch or dinner. Make a few batches of cauliflower rice, portion out and keep in the freezer. When you're looking for a quick dinner, just heat up the cauli rice in the microwave and reheat the curry. * spiralise courgette, and pan fry it with kale and bacon for a few minutes (courgetti cooks really quick). then stir in some pesto, top with a bit of feta cheese, and you've got a seriously delicious dinner.

    I'm female, 5'2", naturally small frame. 1200 in nutritious food is MORE than enough for me, but 1200 allows me to add some cookies or ice cream into my diet. If I fill up on 1050 **really good** calories (big salads with dark greens and chickpeas and carrots and pea pods and feta and almonds, omelettes with tomatoes and lightly wilted spinach, Gordon Ramsay's broccoli soup with a big dollop of Greek yogurt, broiled cauliflower with wing sauce, etc), I'm good.

    Drink lots of water and eat soups and high fiber foods like beans, lentils, vegetables. I tried Gordon Ramsay's broccoli soup recipe (basically just pureed broccoli) and not only was it tasty, it was surprisingly filling. Apples and pears are also very filling and low calorie.

  • Kaitlin Connelly Reply

    Tomato. Roasted red pepper. Butternut squash and green apple. I never mention salt and pepper in talking about food because that stuff is automatic. Gordon Ramsay has a broccoli soup recipe which is blanched broccoli pureed in the blanching liquid. I think it would surely taste like broccoli but lacking a bit of depth.
