    i just got divorced, and since im usually by myself at home in the evenings, my diet has gone right into the shitter. im basically back to the same diet i ate when i was singe, lots of nachos, pizzas, hamburgers... and very little vegetables.

    ive also recently started experiencing an abdominal pain that ive really not suffered while i was married, which i would assume was because my diet was balanced while i had a wife and kid.

    SO,

    im wondering if while i adjust to single life again, is there anything i can pick up from the store that can help with my veggie deficiency? (still taking into consideration that i currently dont spend time cooking like i did).

    a V8 a day or something? any other ideas? something drinkable would certainly be the easiest.

    i realize that really eating right is the best option, but right now im just not into it, but i dont want to let my health drain back into the shitter if possible.

    Buy a rice cooker. You can use it to make rice and also steam vegetables really easily. You can also buy vegetables that are good to eat raw like celery, onions, and carrots.

    v8's are pretty expensive to run with current fuel prices

    no, mine is just the regular LM7 5.3 v8, and the one in my 71 chevy is too frankenstein to ID yet until i get it out. it has an earlier block/intake/qjet, but the cylinder heads are much newer... the valve covers are centerbolt.

    To answer the original question, a V8 a day is not nearly enough by way of vegetables, and doesn't provide nearly enough fiber.

    Make sure you eat 1-2 servings of a fibrous vegetable with every meal. You should be eating 5 meals a day. that's 5-7 servings of vegetables.

    Don't say you are too lazy or don't have time. If you are too lazy to do the bare minimum to keep yourself healthy you should leave this forum.

    eh, right now i woudlnt call it too lazy, im just having a tough time with the motivation, due to the depression that follows my divorce. im fairly sure that when all this passes, ill be back to cooking again, and will be cooking the same things i did when i had a family to take care of.

    i know i cant make a full substitute by this or that, but if i can just find some resonable source that i can just grab from the fridge and consume while i drive to work, that should make an acceptable stopgap while i work on my overall mental state of my life.

    buy a bag of mini carrots and a plastic thing full of pre-washed baby spinach. toss a bunch in a ziploc bag and bring to work. eat a bowl of fibre 1 and protein in the morning.
