Home alone I keep very little in the house as it motivates me to get up and get out as staying inside isn't good for my depression. In the picture above is one of my quick meals using unsalted or low sodium chicken broths, frozen veggies as the base. I use turmeric powder, grated fresh ginger and black pepper for my spices.
I mix it up by adding diced chicken breast, or brown rice, or both. When on sale I add quinoa, you pretty much can add what you like, garlic, onions.
Set a timer, I do as I get easily distracted, also just safe.
